SPACE AND GUEST
BEDROOM IN ONE
cluttering up someone else's house.
Imagine how good it would be if this
equipment had a permanent place of
its own: a home gym in your former
garage, for example!
True, buying the gear may set you
back a bit initially and there won't be
a pool to use after your workout.
But, on the other hand, you won't
have to wait for the equipment to
become available and the shower
will be stocked with all your favourite
products! And don't forget, you'll
save a small fortune on the cost of
annual gym membership.
Install a heater, so you can use your
home gym all year round, and check
there's proper ventilation, so that you
don't get too hot as you train.
Oh yes, there is one disadvantage
you will need to take into consideration
- you won't be able to use the excuse
BUILD A STUD WALL
TO SHORTEN THE
LENGTH OF THE ROOM.
THIS SMALL AREA
CAN BE USED FOR
that the gym is too far
away and you simply
don't have enough time
to go any more.
SAY GOODBYE TO
At certain times of the year, do you
hang your washing on radiators or
drape it over the banisters to dry?
If yes, you could be causing serious
condensation issues. Install a good
extraction system and you could turn
your garage into a laundry room.
When you're planning, allocate
cupboard space for detergents, stain
remover and fabric conditioner. Three
laundry hampers - for whites, lights
and darks - will cut back on time
spent sorting out dirty washing.
If space is limited, consider a
collapsible drying rack, a retractable
ironing board and hanging lines.
