Should you convert your garage?


Depending on the size of your garage and the type of room you’d like, a garage conversion can cost you anywhere between £5,000 and £10,000. Other factors such as whether you want to include a bathroom or not make a difference, as you need to include plumbing work in to your budget – different rooms have different demands.

But is converting your garage a good idea? We are here to tell you why it is a great idea.

A single garage conversion can add up to 10% on to the value of your home, and a double garage conversion can add up to 22% - if it’s a well-executed and well thought out conversion. But if your main goal is to create more living space without moving out of your current home, then a garage conversion is perfect for you and your needs. It’s worth keeping in mind that potential buyers in the future like properties with a lot of storage space, which is where a well-designed garage comes in.

One problem people may have with a garage conversion, is that they won’t have anywhere to park their car - but if your garage is big enough, we suggest a dual-purpose garage. Use one half to park your car, stored away from all the elements outside, and use the other half for whatever you want, whether it be storage, a home office or a home gym.

Other benefits of a garage conversion are:

  • No loss of land
  • The space is already built
  • Creative freedom
  • Adds living space
