A new space to fulfill all your dreams
According to some recent studies, more than 90 per cent of garages are not used by their owners as parking spaces, which is normally their initial purpose. Instead, they are frequently left empty or sometimes used as storage space and often end up as a dumping ground for unwanted and useless objects. That is why it is time to recruit us to make your home more functional at a lower cost and make the best use of your spaces.
First, it can be a good option for households in need of more living space. If your garage is a place you barely use, full of cardboard boxes, with unnecessary household items, then the extra space is an excellent reason to consider a conversion.
You can have a lot of options when considering a new room. Our clients have used their space for a multitude of different reasons, but the two that always come up are additional kitchen space and an extra bedroom:
One of the most successful ways to increase your house’s value is to install a larger or more functional kitchen area. For example, you can connect two rooms such as a dining room or even a living room and a new open modern kitchen (the old garage converted).
This will allow easy passage and give the impression of grandeur to your house. Since the kitchen is the heartbeat of the home, make sure you can appreciate it entirely.
Easier option than getting an extension
The price of a garage conversion is considerably lower than the costs of a full extension, for example. There is no need to build new foundations or new walls. You have nothing to worry about except for choosing the type of room you want. We are mainly going to use the existing walls in your garage to do this transformation so that you save money and save time because a conversion can easily and quickly be converted rather than an extension.
By opting for a garage conversion instead of an extension, you will not have to sacrifice the garden area. Most of the work will be performed inside the garage, thus minimizing disruptions to you and your everyday life.
Getting planning permission for an extension can take a very long time and be frustrating. It is good to know that planning permission is not usually required to convert your garage into an additional living space. This is providing the work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building. A condition attached to planning permission may also require that the garage remains as a parking space. Interior renovations to improve your living space are a perfect way to use most of the space you already have.
Getting a second living space for big families can be a perfect way of giving everybody a little more space to relax and breath in the evenings.
Converting a bedroom to an ensuite bedroom with an extra bathroom, for example, often raises the property’s value, while other, more bespoke conversions can have a smaller effect on the price. In any case, the improved value of your house will justify the costs of converting your garage.
A Many people see a garage conversion to provide an opportunity for something totally unique. After all, transforming your garage effectively creates a whole new space in your house, so why not put it to good use and use it for something your home is missing or even something that you have always wanted but never had enough space to do it?

Frequently Asked Questions:
If you are thinking of building an extension or making other changes to your house, you may need to apply for planning permission. Generally, minor changes to your property do not need planning permission, but you should always make certain before starting building. If you fail to apply for the correct planning permission when required, it can result in penalties. You can contact your local authority, and they can advise you about this.
You do not need planning permission if you build an extension to the rear of the house that doesn’t increase the original floor area by more than 40 square metres. It must not be higher than the house. You must remember that the extension can’t reduce the open space at the back of the house to less than 25 square metres. It must be reserved exclusively for the use of the occupants of your house.
If you are converting a garage attached to the rear or side of the house for domestic, you must remember that planning permission will be required if it has a floor area of more than 40 square metres. You can build a garage at the back or side of a house if it does not extend out in front of the line of the house. A building will be exempt from planning permission as long as the floor area of all additional structures is limited to 25sq metres. For more detailed information, you will need to contact your local planning office.
If you may be thinking about converting a garage, it may be well worth it. It can be a cost-effective way to add some extra space without adding to your home’s footprint. However, there are some factors for consideration before you begin the process. Many garages may not be constructed to high specifications and, as a result, are often poorly insulated. Some have no damp-proofing and low ceilings, which may result in additional work required. Having a garage converted into a living space may mean having to address these problems before you begin.
