When you are considering designing and building your own home, one of the last things that you will think of is the garage. Having a garage is not only having a safe place to store your car, but is also a great place to store things, and a garage is a real asset to your home.
However, although a garage is something that might not be the first thing that you think about, it is one of the most prominent things that you will see when you are looking at your home, so it should be well designed and planned out to ensure that it is well suited to the front of your property and that the style compliments the rest of the building.
The first thing that you will want to think about when planning where to put a garage is the location and position of it. Is it going to be attached to the rest of the house – this can make it easier to access from the home via an adjoining door – or is it going to be a detached building.
When you are considering the design, this will have an impact on it. A detached garage can really ‘shine’ when it’s on its own and needs to be designed differently to one that is attached as this will obviously form part of the home and need to blend into it.
You also need to think about the size of your garage. What will you be using it for? How many cars do you have? These are things that you should be asking yourself when you are planning a garage. You also need to think about how much of the space you are willing to use for your garage. On a smaller plot, you may have to compromise a little to ensure that you are not losing space that you want to use for other things.
