If you have a garage that grows empty (or full) and you think it's time to do something about it, then in the text below you can look at several of our suggestions that you can use for your own garage, especially if its function as a garage is no longer needed.
If you need an extra room a garage conversion is likely to cost far less than packing up and moving to a new property that has the extra space and better value than a new extension.
Guest room, why not?
Creating a new guest room or extra bedroom adds huge value at a typical cost of £12,000. Go mad include an en-suite.
Office or studio
If you need a place to work from home then this option is the right choice for you, whatever your profession is. There are countless variants, and the only thing that matters to you is that you would like to realize this space.
Don't bother to cover all the beams, since this style contributes to an interesting studio design
For party-loving or film buff households, a garage can be quickly transformed into a self-contained media or cinema room or child’s den.
A garage is a fantastic space that could easily account for some machines and free weights. Feel the burn.
Where garages are connected with the kitchen, knocking out the wall between the two in order to create one larger kitchen-diner is a great idea — and also overcomes the long, narrow issue.
There are many things to consider when considering the conversion of the garage. The experts involved in the project will be able to provide a comprehensive list of decisions to be taken, but some of the most important include:
Crucial step with any garage conversion is to conduct an assessment of the existing structure, in particular the soundness of the foundations, walls and roof.
It is necessary to correctly assess the accuracy of the building in the garage, in order to determine whether it is more convenient to demolish than convert.
Fireproofing if there will be only part of garage converted.
Check possibility for water, drainage and electricity.
Garage conversions fall into ‘change of use’ and so will require building regulations approval.
You must notify an approved inspector of the forthcoming project by submitting a building notice or a full plans application.
Therefore, we recommend that you first call the Experts and save time and money. You can download a FREE Project Planning Pack below:
