Garage Conversions In Tameside

Many homes use their garage as storage rather than as a place to keep their car dry. We find that family garages are not actually used as the home for the family saloon or 4WD, but rather as a storage room for broken furniture, worn out tyres, unused children’s toys and things that “may perhaps” get used again one day (but hardly ever do!). Does that sound like your garage?

There is a much better use for such a big component of your house than a simple clutter store room! Take advantage of the misused space and turn your garage area into a functional, spectacular room with a garage conversion.

For many years cars have become ever wider whilst single garages have continued to be the exact same width, rendering it impossible to open the doors of your car in it these days, but while the car has grown out of your garage, a typical single garage is still around 150 sq ft. which offers the possibility of creating a substantial amount of additional living space for you to enhance your home. A double or much larger garage can offer even more opportunities.

The beauty of a garage conversion is that it’s more economical than a traditional extension (or a loft conversion) as the foundations, walls and floor are already there and (in the larger part of cases) planning permission is not required. It is a comparatively affordable way of adding living space to your home and making it possible for you to avoid the huge expense and disruption of moving home to get the extra room that you really need.

Imagine the possibilities; an extra bedroom, a dedicated home office space or even that gym you have often wanted. a garage may be converted into anything your heart desires with the only restrictions being your imagination and budget (subject to building regulations). Common options for garage conversions include: an extra bedroom, a boy or girls’s playroom, a home cinema, gym, home office, artist’s studio, workshop, craft room, granny flat (or flat for a son/daughter/family carer).

Research by Virgin Money suggests that transforming your garage could add in approximately ₤ 40,000 to the value of your residential or commercial property, rendering it an extremely budget-friendly way to add a substantial amount of value and added square footage to your residential or commercial property.
