Converting your garage into a room

convert my garage to a room

Consider what you actually use your garage for. All too often it turns into more of a store room than its original intended use as a space to park the car. If that’s the case, it may be time to put it to better use such as a converting it into something more useful and worthwhile.

It’s is one of the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective ways to add floor space. For example, creating a new home office, a gym or a playroom can often be completed in just over 2 weeks.

It also means you won’t have the hassle of moving house as you can get the home that suits your family’s needs by staying right where you are. You’ll also be saving on legal fees for solicitors, stamp duty, etc.

And, unlike building a bigger extension, you won’t be losing any of your garden space.

A garage conversion can also increase the value of your home. Virgin Money thinks you’ll be able to get around a 10%-20% return by taking on a well thought out project that enhances the look and functionality of your house. There are many choices, such as a full Integral single garage conversion, a double integral garage conversion, part Integral garage conversion or a detached garage conversion,

The Integral garage conversion option is quite simple to work into the main accommodation as it’s easy to knock through the wall to join up with an existing room. You could also consider enlarging a hallway or extending your kitchen.

A detached garage conversion, meanwhile, gets you a totally separate area for use as a gym, an office away from family distractions or even a business such as a beauty salon.

A single garage generally offers around 15m2 of floor space, more than adequate for a playroom, a drawing room, guest bedroom, or even an extra downstairs shower and WC.

If you want an honest and trustworthy builder who can transform your garage in 1 week then look no further. Troy, Rick, Collette and the rest of the team at Garage Conversions North West have been second to none. Professional, tidy, competitive pricing and trustworthy. The team worked tirelessly to ensure our conversion was completed to the highest of standards (even working a Sunday.)I always find it hard to choose a reliable tradesman but Troy was recommended to me from a friend and I can see why. Always answers his phone or gets back to you ASAP, keeps you well informed of progress and ensures all jobs are spot on. From start to finish this company were just fabulous and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Thank you to all the team for your hard work.The Newton Family

Fantastic team! Troy/Rick and the rest were all fantastic! Colette was always helpful and polite on the phone/emails as well when needed. We had our single integrated garage converted in to a spare play room and small utility! Extremely trustworthy! Highly Highly recommended! I'm sure you won't find many better! All the best and I'll be passing on your info to a few other people I know!

Troy and his team did a great job on my garage conversion. At a time when many other contractors are struggling with supplies, delaying builds, adding huge price increases, he completed the project on-time and budget. The work was done to a good standard and I couldn't be more delighted with the results. A polite, friendly, professional company that I would not hesitate to recommend .

We used Garage Conversions North West for an integral garage conversion. They kept us updated throughout the process and were more than happy to answer any questions we had. The conversion has been finished to a high standard, and was brilliant value. We are really happy with our new dining room and would recommend Troy and team to anyone considering converting their garage into a new space.
The work that Troy, Rick, and the team at GCNW have carried out over the two and a bit weeks has been second to none. The work would have been two but there was a slight delay due to the weather and availability of the wet room flooring. Originally, we were told it was going to be mid-November for that, but Rick sourced an alternative that was able to be done on schedule.I'd have no hesitations at all recommending their services to anyone who needs a garage conversion. Many thanks guys!
