Many of you would probably agree that garages are mostly used as a dumping ground for all the extra stuff. It’s a bit like the loft really where you frequently store things supposedly short-term but that never happens.

Small bedrooms are perfect renovation projects but don’t underestimate everything that goes along with it.
