Extra Space

Although a garage conversion will cost you money, it is one of the easiest and most affordable ways of enjoying extra space in your home without the stress, upheaval and inconvenience of actually moving house. That space is especially useful for anyone who has a growing family and needs an extra bedroom, or anyone whose elderly parent is coming to live with them. Your garage already has its own outside entrance and is on ground level, making it ideal to be used as a bedroom for an older or infirm person who still wants to retain some level of independence. However, that extra space doesn't have to be used as a bedroom - the converted garage makes the perfect home office, media or music room, home gym or playroom. Because your garage is either detached from the house or away from the bedrooms, noise from the garage won't be as noticeable inside the house.

Add Value to Your Home

Whether or not you intend to sell your home in the near future, garage conversions can add value to your home. Even if you have no immediate plans to sell your home, your home's extra value can be useful if you need to borrow against its equity, allowing you to borrow a higher amount if necessary. Converting your garage requires no costly or time consuming renovations, and it does not usually affect the structure or safety of your home. Another appeal of converting the garage into another room is the fact that the conversion won't affect your council tax rate. Most garage conversions can be carried out without disrupting your routine too much, and without the sight of workmen traipsing through your home. It is also an easy and straightforward task to match the dcor in your garage with the existing look of your home, making the conversion a seamless part of your home.

If your family needs more room and moving house isn't an option, or you want the security of a home that is worth more, a garage conversion can be an affordable and practical solution.
