Garage conversions are a fantastic way to add more floor area and potentially value to your property. Many garages are not used as purposeful spaces, therefore a garage conversion can be a way to reclaim space and put it to more efficient use. Garage conversions can be used to add living or utility space, a bedroom, home office or bathroom, or expand a kitchen. Most garage conversions do not need planning permission as long as you don’t intend on increasing the size of your home, however when planning a garage conversion it is important to discuss with your Local Authority, as some restrictions can apply, for example on the amount of off-road parking spaces in the area. The garage conversion will also have to adhere to building regulations on drainage, insulation, damp proofing, amongst other things.

When undertaking your garage conversion, have a structural survey done on the pre-existing garage in order to verify the amount of work that will be done. This will determine the best way to carry out the conversion. The walls of your existing garage will typically need improving from a single skin design to a cavity wall. Flooring will often need elevating to meet the height of your property. Roofs will need either updating or completely changing to a tiled pitch roof style. The existing garage door will in most cases be infilled with a new brick wall and have a window added. The new room will require insulating to the standard of habitable rooms.
