Garage conversions are a great option to increase floor area and potentially value to your property. Many garages aren’t used as practical spaces, and so a garage conversion can be a way to reclaim space and put it to more practical use. Garage conversions can be used to add living or utility rooms, a bedroom, home office or bathroom, or extend a kitchen. Most garage conversions will not need planning permission so long as you don’t intend on increasing the structure of your home, but when considering a garage conversion it is necessary to discuss with your Local Authority, as some limits can apply, for example on the number of off-road parking spaces within an area. The garage conversion will also have to comply with building regulations on drainage, insulation, damp proofing, amongst other things.
When carrying out your garage conversion, have a structural survey done on the current garage in order to establish 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 most likely need raising to meet the height of your house. Roofs will require either upgrading or completely transforming to a tiled pitch roof style. The existing garage door will usually be infilled with a new brick wall and have a window added. The new room will require insulating to the standard of habitable rooms.
