Convert your garage into an office or extra living space
According to a survey conducted by the RAC, only one out of four householders who have a garage use it for the overnight parking of a car - most prefer to use it for storage - but converting a garage into a room can be done quite easily for a relatively modest outlay.
extra living space?
More and more people opt to work from home nowadays so converting a garage into an office is a popular and practical solution to the pressing need for more space. For a growing family, an extra bedroom could mean you’d be able to stay put rather than moving house, or you might want a room for leisure activities – a playroom for the children perhaps, a music room or a home cinema, a den for a teenager or even your own bar.
Turn your garage into a utility room
With the addition of plumbing and electrical services, a utility room would be particularly useful to those houses with limited kitchen space, and a bathroom or shower room would add ground floor facilities to those with just an upstairs bathroom.
Double garage = double the space
A detached or integral double garage gives even more scope for conversion. Along with the options already outlined, there would be enough room for a completely self-contained ‘granny annexe’ for instance, or, by knocking through the connecting wall to an integral garage, you could substantially enlarge your kitchen or living room. Or why not sub-divide, giving you two rooms for the price of one?

Whatever type of conversion you decide on, we can quote for all of the necessary work, including the final decoration, and we’ll make sure the floor structure, insulation, plumbing and heating all comply with Building Regulations.
And remember, as long as the alterations are only internal and the building isn’t being enlarged - no planning permission is required.
