What Benefits Does a Garage Conversion Offer?

A garage conversion is a great way to repurpose your underused space and incorporate it into part of your accommodation. Unlike a house extension where you’ll need to give up some of the area in your garden, a garage conversion gives you the additional space without increasing your property’s footprint. By doing so, you could add as much as 10% to the value of your property which makes this a great investment option as you’re effectively plunging your cash straight back into your home.

Garage conversions are non-disruptive in comparison to other types of building projects, as 90-95% of the work takes place within the confines of your garage space, ensuring you’re not affected by noise or dust. If your garage is attached or integral, then you can expect the work between the garage and the main house to be the last task to be completed.

The Best Ways to Use Your Garage Conversion

Bigger Homes can transform your garage into a multitude of different rooms depending on your preferences. Some popular garage conversion ideas include:

  • Playroom
  • Home office
  • Guest bedroom with ensuite or wet room
  • Luxury kitchen diner

Do Garage Conversions Work With Any Garage?

Bigger Homes can offer various options for your garage depending on how much space is available and where it is located. Typically, garages are either:

  • Attached
  • Integral
  • Detached

With attached or integral garages, these are already connected to the main body of your home. As the garage can be accessed from within the home via a door, this makes the conversion possibilities relatively simple.

Detached garages may require planning permission if you need to change their intended use. However, there are still some fantastic options for conversions including:

  • Games room
  • Annex
  • Man-cave or teen den
  • Garden room

A single garage with standard measurements can provide as much as 14 square metres of space, whilst a double can offer as much as 28 square metres. Double garages also offer the potential to keep part as storage.

Contact Bigger Homes and our garage conversion specialists will help to explain your options.

Is Planning Permission Required?

Planning permission is often not required for a garage conversion as the project will usually fall within the scope of permitted development. However, exceptions can include:

  • If the garage is part of a previous extension to the property
  • If the property has a covenant stipulating that the building must be retained as a garage
  • Existing parking arrangements at the property
