Fun & Games: A Garage Transformation to a Playroom

Garage Transformation


When it comes to space, the Fane family from Port Moody, BC, knows the struggle all too well. After a fantastic holiday with their one and a half year old daughter, Gwynne and Matthew Fane found themselves faced with a familiar problem – not enough room to accommodate their daughter's ever-growing collection of toys. Despite moving into a larger house to address their need for space, they realized that effective organization was the key.

Overcoming Design Challenges:

The Fane family's garage presented a unique set of design challenges due to its narrow layout. Gwynne expressed her initial concerns, sharing, "Our garage is very narrow and has a couple of design challenges that I worried would be show stoppers for the Clever Quarters crew. "However, the determined Clever Quarters design consultant was committed to finding a solution. Multiple options were mocked up until they discovered the one that best suited the family's intended use of the space.

A Dual-Function Room:

The transformation of their single car garage exceeded the Fane family's expectations, resulting in a storage and playroom combination that delighted Gwynne and Matthew. Matthew, who now shares the space with his daughter, expressed their satisfaction, stating, "We absolutely love our newly renovated garage." The addition of cabinets provided a practical solution for organizing their belongings, and the ability to lock them away brought peace of mind, ensuring their daughter's safety, finished with beautiful, durable and easy to clean garage flooring system.
