Reasons To Convert Your Garage:
Over the years we’ve worked on a number of different projects for customers with a wide variety of different needs. One thing that we’ve discovered here at the Garage Conversion Company is that there are a lot of different reasons that a garage conversion might be perfect for your property. Whether you’re looking to add more living space to your home, increase your property value, or you just want to revamp your worn-down and currently ignored garage, a garage conversion can help you finally take full advantage of your garage space.
We’ve completed a great number of standard garage conversions, as well as more bespoke and unique conversions based on customer specifications. From kitchen expansions, living rooms, bathrooms, bedrooms and offices, there are a lot of functional alternatives for unused garages. On the other hand, we’ve seen customers use the extra space for personal gyms, games rooms, cinemas and other creative uses for more living space.
We’ve carried out large range of garage conversion projects, suiting a number of different tastes, lifestyles and budgets. A garage conversion is a fantastic way to make the most of your space at home while adding value to your home. Whatever you plan to do with your garage, we think there are a lot of good reasons to consider a garage conversion, including:
A garage conversion can be an excellent way to give yourself more living space in a cost-effective manner whilst increasing the value of your home. According to some recent surveys, around 80-90% of garages aren’t actually used for parking by homeowners. Instead, they are often left empty or used as storage, with many becoming a dumping ground for unused and unwanted items.
Most homes have a driveway for the purpose of parking anyway, so a lot of garages are left as extra unnecessary space on the side of your house. By choosing to convert your garage into extra living space with the Garage Conversion Company, you could significantly increase the value of your property without the expenses of a standard home extension.
We’ll professionally convert your garage in line with current building regulations. The average increase to a home’s value with a job like this could be anywhere between 10-15%. However, this depends a great deal of the kind of extension you’d like to get.
For example, an en-suite bedroom conversion can significantly increase your home’s value. Having an extra bedroom always adds property value, whereas other more bespoke conversions might affect the price less. In any case, while converting your garage can be costly, the increase in value to your home will outweigh the costs. Compared to a standard home extension, a garage conversion is a far more cost-effective way to give your home more personal living space.
New Space For Whatever You Want
Perhaps the most convincing reason to get a garage conversion is the fact that you’ll have an entire new room’s worth of living space in your home. If your garage is full of cardboard boxes brimming with unused household bits and pieces, and if your garage is a room you rarely use, then the extra space is a great reason to think about a conversion.
There are loads of things you can do with your new room. We’ve seen customers use their space for a range of different uses throughout Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire, including:
- Extra kitchen space
- Extra bedroom
- Extra living room
- Kids’ playroom
- Home office
- Games room
Perhaps the two most popular reasons for having a garage conversion carried out are to either extend the kitchen or to add an additional living room area. Knocking through from your kitchen and into the garage allows you to create a massive open plan area that you can use for a modern kitchen and dining area. For large families, having a second living area can be a great way to give everyone a bit more breathing room during evenings as well.
On the other hand, a lot of people see a garage conversion as an opportunity to do something completely unique. After all, converting your garage essentially gives your home an entirely new room, so why not use it for something your home lacks? This is where we’ve seen customers use their new space to create their own personal gym, a home cinema, games room, workshop, soundproof music room, art studio and much more!
Easier Than Getting An Extension
Garage conversion costs are significantly lower than those of getting a full extension. That’s because you don’t need to worry about laying new foundations or building new walls. Your garage conversion will largely use the existing walls, meaning that not only do you save costs, but the conversion is also quicker and easier than getting an extension.
You won’t have to sacrifice any of your garden space by getting a garage conversion instead of an extension. Most of the work will be done inside the garage, so disruption to you and your daily life will be able to be kept to a minimum.
Getting planning permission for an extension can be lengthy and frustrating. When you opt for a garage conversion, however, the chances are that you won’t need planning permission. You usually only need planning permission if you’re planning to extend or enlarge the size of your garage. Opting instead on internal work to give yourself more living space is a great way of utilizing the space already available to you.
