With most of us staying at home due to the pandemic, a lot of us are left with no choice but to rely on home workouts or creating makeshift spaces to accommodate our daily fitness routines. With that said, designing a home gym comes with a lot of fun! Not only will you be able to pick the best equipment to fit your desired routines, but also the materials, finishes, and colors that fit your personal style.
In this post, the top home gym and siding expert, JLR Home Renovation, shares some of the best home gym remodeling ideas for your consideration.
Create a Garage Gym Setup
If you think that you can sacrifice your garage space, then it’s a good idea to convert it into a personal gym. A garage space is big enough to accommodate basic gym equipment required for most workout routines. You can fit a dip and pullup bar, a bench, a squat rack, and have space for dumbbells. Just make sure that you’re working with a trusted home remodeling contractor to make the most out of your home gym conversion.
Install Lights or Windows In Your Workout Room
If the room that you plan to convert into a home gym doesn’t have any windows, you can always contact your replacement windows expert to help you install windows for this space. Alternatively, you can install lighting fixtures to brighten up this space. You can use LED lighting, white walls, and floor-to-ceiling mirrors so that you can consistently check if you’re doing the proper form of your workouts. You can also add protective mats if you’re doing deadlifts or calisthenics to protect your flooring.
Create a Yoga Studio
An extra bedroom has the potential to become a beautiful home yoga studio. We suggest installing large mirrors head-to-toe mirrors that can be found in most yoga studios. It’s also a good idea to have a wall storage area and a rolling cart to store yoga essentials and equipment.
