Firstly, it’s probably more than you think. When the garage is full of bikes, cement and tools it’s hard to see clearly how much space you have.
In the UK most modern houses are built with either a single or double garage. As a rule of thumb these are usually 2.5m x 5m and 5m x 5m respectively. These are both good sizes and give you plenty of space to work with.
In a single garage you can comfortably fit in a new bedroom with a small ensuite at the back. Alternatively there’s plenty of space to create an office or playroom while retaining a section at the back for utility space. You can also knock through from the main house to really open up a grand kitchen and dining space.
For a double garage you have many options. You can create a modest self contained living space, with a shower room, bedroom and small kitchen/living area. We’ve installed cinema rooms and studios or some people choose a complete house redesign. You can use the large garage as a new kitchen and dining area and utilise the previous kitchen for more living space.
By completely integrating the garage into the rest of the house we can seamlessly expand your living space and increase the value of your home. As well as getting the space up to the same standard or higher in terms of insulation and warmth we also make sure the aesthetics match. From a perfect brick and window match for the outside, to ensuring we give you the same doors, architrave and skirting boards inside, we always make sure you’d never know the garage was ever there. This gives you the same potential as an extension without the associated upheaval and cost.
Having converted over 300 garages we have experienced of all sorts of ideas, big and small. You bring the ideas and we make it happen.
