A garage conversion is an extremely attractive option for homeowners allowing them to maximise the living space available in their home. Garages, are not often used for car storage these days, and instead they’re typically used as storage areas for a range of household and garden items. Transforming your single or double garage into a fully functioning part of your home makes a lot of sense, especially if you have a growing family with differing leisure interests.
Garages can often be converted into larger kitchens, additional bedrooms, a bathroom, an office, or even a gym or media room. A garage conversion represents an great opportunity to change how you live, without changing where you live.
types of garage conversions
Attached or Integrated - this garage is connected to the main structure of the house, sometimes to one side, but also often projecting out from the front of the house with a room above, commonly a bedroom. Attached garages can usually be accessed from inside the house, making the conversion even easier.
Detached: Just because a garage is detached does not mean it’s not suitable for conversion into living space. Planning permission is likely to be required.
