5 fantastic uses for your garage conversion


Our home improvement experts have put together a guide to just a few of the possible uses for your new garage conversion

Guest accommodation

If you often have friends and family staying with you, a cosy guest room with en-suite bathroom could be the perfect use for your garage conversion. Imagine how nice it would be to offer your guests the luxury of their own private space tucked away from the main house! It could also be a great way to accommodate elderly relatives or older children who want a bit more independence. 

Please note that you may need to obtain planning permission if you want to use your garage conversation as a self-contained dwelling. You can find out more information about planning permission here.

Craft room or art studio

The creative people among us will all understand the struggle of finding somewhere to accommodate drawers and cupboards full or art supplies and materials, as well as carving out a dedicated space to get crafty. If you’re fed up of trying to spread your latest project out on the kitchen table or in a corner of your bedroom, why not turn your garage into your very own studio? 

Music practice space

If you or your older children are in a band, it might not always be easy to find suitable places to practice. With the right soundproofing, a garage conversion can become a great rehearsal space for the musical members of your family. 

Gym or yoga studio

This past year has seen a huge rise in the popularity of home workouts. With gyms having to close for a large part of the year, many of us invested in our own exercise equipment so we could stay fit at home. If you currently have a treadmill taking up space in your spare room, or a makeshift yoga studio in the dining room, just imagine the luxury of having your own dedicated workout space.

Home office

If you’re one of the many people who is likely to continue working from home long term, it might be time to start thinking about creating a dedicated home office. Having your own quiet space to work is far more likely to encourage productivity that working at the end of the dining room table or from the sofa!
