A home office is beneficial to have when you're already working in this environment, you're seeking a new job, or your current job requests that you change your work location. While working at home, you can sometimes increase your productivity as you're in a comfortable environment, with your family when you need to be and don't have to worry about commuting during the day. It can also aid in decreasing the spread of viruses since you won't be near coworkers. One way that you can get the best work environment for success is to convert your garage into an office.

Removing Clutter
Before adding anything to your garage, you should remove as much clutter as possible. Look through bags and boxes that might be stored in the garage to see what you want to keep, what you need, and what you can get rid of so that you'll have plenty of space for a desk, chair, and other items that you'll need to get work done during the day. After you've removed items that clutter the garage, you can then work on organizing everything so that it's in one location instead of scattered around the room. If needed, install a few shelves or cabinets for additional space.

There are a few essentials that you want to invest in if you don't already have them. A desk and an ergonomic chair should be at the top of the list of items to purchase. Make sure the desk you purchase is of a comfortable working height and that the chair can be adjusted as well along with the chair having a backrest to provide comfort during the day. This can also help you sit straighter. Make sure your desk has plenty of room for all of the supplies that you need as well as plenty of drawers to keep items close by but without cluttering the top.

Think about the tasks that you perform during the day while you're working. A bookcase could be beneficial in your office if you have a lot of books, notebooks, and folders that you need to organize. You can also get a file cabinet to keep thin folders in as well as documents that you need to keep safe.

The temperature in your garage should be kept on the cooler side instead of being too warm so that you're comfortable. If there are windows in your garage, try to keep them open as much as possible to allow fresh air to circulate. You also want to keep them uncovered to allow natural light to shine through.
