4 reasons homeowners opt for garage conversions


Garage conversions are a popular home improvement choice for people who want to create valuable extra space. We break down some of the reasons why. 

1) Garage conversions often don’t require planning permission

Unless you’re planning to use your converted garage as a self-contained dwelling, extend it externally, or add windows to the side or back, it’s likely you won’t require planning permission. Being able to carry out work without needing to go through the planning application process or face potential delays is often a big part of the appeal of garage conversions. 

More information about planning permission can be found here.

2) Garage conversions are an ideal way to create valuable space

The pandemic has prompted many people to think about new ways to create valuable space in their homes. With more and more people working from home for the foreseeable future, demand for home offices has soared. The same can be said for gyms, with many opting to create their own home workout space in light of gym closures during lockdown.

Garages are the ideal size for a home gym or office, yet they often get wasted as storage space for excess clutter. More garage conversion inspiration can be found here.

4) Garage conversions increase the value of your home

Garage conversions can add more than 20% to the value of a home, which is why many people see them as a worthwhile investment. Also, because garage conversions are often cheaper than moving house, they present a great, cost-effective solution if the only problem in your home is a lack of space.
