This whole stay in place order is not fun. If you’re like us, you’re probably stuck at home with nothing to do and may start losing your mind. We understand it. But what if you could turn your garage into the ultimate hangout spot for you and your family? Imagine this – you have a bar to grab a drink, a movie theater when you’re wanting to get cozy, all the snacks for when you’re hungry, and all of your favorite games and whatever else you feel you need! Here’s how you do it: 

Step 1: Start by cleaning out your garage and making it spotless. Take out all the unnecessary stuff and if possible, store it away somewhere. If this isn’t possible, pick an area in your garage that can still act as storage for all the things you need to keep stored away and organized. For the sake of presentation, you can hang a curtain separating your new hangout spot from the storage. Once you have everything in its place, take a broom and brush out your garage, you can even take a hose and wash the floor off if you think it’s needed. 

Step 2: Now it’s time to design your ideal hangout spot. Lay down a rug to keep it cozy and warm, and think about all the things you feel are needed for a hangout spot. Maybe a couch, some chairs, a bean bag chair, a tv, a table, and whatever specifically you and your family want to add. 

Step 3: Decide how you want to layout your area, you could have a gaming area, a snacking table, a movie theater, a table for board games, and the list goes on and on. That’s what makes this so much fun. You can create a space for anything you see fit. Once you have an idea of how you want your space to add all of the components you need and set it up nicely.  

Step 4: Once your space is done and you are happy with the way it looks, you’ll want to add things to it for ambiance. Add some hanging lights, rope lighting, tapestries, whatever you think seems cool. 

Step 5: Your hangout space is complete and it’s time for you to enjoy it the best you can during the quarantine. We know that it’s hard to be stuck inside and not be able to go outside and have nothing to do. However, this hangout space can help pass the time and keep your spirits up during this time. Make sure to keep your distance and keep all the surfaces around you clean and disinfected so you can prevent the spread of germs. 

You don’t even have to have a garage to make a hangout space like this, you can use any room in your home or turn your apartment into the ultimate spot. The biggest thing to remember during the quarantine is to keep your spirits up and keep pushing forward. It’s easy for you to start feeling down and stressed about the things that are occurring in the world but it will be over before you know. In the meantime create a routine or do the activities that make you the happiest. This way you keep your stress to a minimum and you make through.
