Garages? Which?

Convert your garage and enjoy the extra space on the ground floor without reducing the natural daylight into other rooms. One of the major benefits of a garage conversion is cost. Converting your garage is more cost effective than moving to a new house, and is becoming much more popular. The cost of building a full extension or converting a loft is much more than a garage conversion. A standard single garage is approximately 150 sq ft. and that’s too small to fit a family saloon (and be able to open the doors!) but that’s a lot of extra living space if you convert it as an integral part of your house. The perfect solution may lie in a ‘part conversion’ where typically the front or rear of the garage might be retained for storage whilst the rest of the garage is converted into a useable room

Convert Your Garage No Matter its Size or Design

A loft prior to a conversion is essentially a wasted space, primarily used for storage. The same can be said of garages. Many homeowners in Ongar, Buckhurst Hill and Barkingside desire more living space but do not know how to achieve it. If looking into converting a garage, make sure your garage conversion company has experience in dealing with all different types and size of garage:

Single Garage Conversion

A standard single garage might not seem very big when used for its original purpose but when it has been professionally converted it can be surprisingly spacious. A garage conversion team must understand the building regulations and whether or not planning permission is needed.

Double Garage Conversion

A double garage can easily be converted into one large room or two separate rooms: a dining room and study perhaps, or children’s play area and a comfortable guestroom. A reputable company should talk to you and discuss your options before designing and building. At, not only do discussions take place before the work starts, but the client can take a look at previous work carried out by the company to get some ideas and inspiration.
