How to Convert Your Garage Attic to a Storage Space You’ll Find Practical and Economical


Did you know you might be parking your vehicle right underneath a convenient storage space for keepsakes, old items, and leftover renovation materials? If you own your home, you might want to think about what to do with the attic above your garage. These areas are often large and spacious, but they generally go unused — which is a pity, since they can be large enough to save you the cost of renting a storage space somewhere else.


If you want to convert your garage attic to a storage space, you’ll need to consider the following variables:

  • How will you access the area? Will you need to have a ladder installed?

  • How will you light the space? Will you opt for electric lighting and the wiring required, or install a skylight?

  • What kind of insulation will you need for the space, depending on the items you intend to keep there? Will they need membranes that help protect the area against large quantities of dust?
