Best ideas for a garage conversion
Garage conversions are an ideal way to make use of space we already have to increase living space without the extra expense of building an extension. Garage Refurbs have helped many Yorkshire home-owners to realise their dream of creating a great new room from their garage.
Before you decide to convert your garage space to living space, check with your local planning department to see if there are any restrictions preventing you from changing the use of your garage. If your garage is integral, or attached, the garage conversion will be simpler, but with a little imagination, a useful garage conversion can still be achieved from a detached garage.
Popular new uses for garages include kitchens, playrooms, home offices, gyms, and even spare bedrooms. Before you embark upon a garage conversion, you should consider what you want to use your new space for, and then consult the experienced garage conversion team at Garage Refurbs, to see if it is achievable.
Single garages are generally long and thin, which should be considered when planning a new use for the space. A double garage will offer more options for designing your new room.
If your garage is attached to your kitchen, then a great result can be achieved by opening up the space from your kitchen, to create an open plan living kitchen, or a convenient dining area for the family. Alternatively, a children’s playroom attached to a kitchen can allow you to supervise their play while working in the kitchen. For older children, a home cinema, or television room may be welcome. If you prefer to convert only part of your garage, to keep some of your garage space for storage, you could create a useful utility, or shower room.
A separate garage could be converted for use a as home office, offering privacy from the interruptions of family life. Alternatively, a gym is a popular option. A separate garage may even have potential for creating a self-contained annexe, subject to planning consent.
