A granny flat is a great addition to any home, turning your extra yard space into a comfy living space, usually for visiting relatives, a youngster or your parents or parents-in-law. It’s a good home investment as it can be used for a variety of purposes that can add real value to your property.
In this post, Marrokal Design and Remodeling discusses alternative uses for your granny flat.
Work-From-Home Office Space
Office spaces are great home additions for almost anyone these days, but there’s often limited space in your actual property to accommodate this. If there’s simply no more space in your bedroom to fit your small office, we recommend turning your granny flat into a work-from-home office space.
It’s actually better to do this since the granny flat is separate from the rest of your home, which means your office space is more private. Additionally, you’ll have ample room for your work materials, and you’ll have an easier time finding them.
Alternatively, you can turn your granny flat into a pool house complete with a shed and changing areas. Here, you can store all the chemicals and cleaning products you’d rather not have strewn about your backyard and pool area. It also makes a great secure space for your other pool equipment, toys, and inflatables.
You can also turn your granny flat into a working investment by renting out the flat area. Small properties like these are particularly attractive to couples, students or travelers as they typically don’t require a large living space.
Finally, you can turn your granny flat into a game room. Whether your kids are into tabletop or video games, giving them their own space to play reduces room clutter and noise on your main property.
