Often, when people are undertaking extensions to their properties, garages are not taken into consideration – but as per any other space, garages can be renovated to provide an additional living area. If you have a growing family, or you simply need extra room, a garage conversion can be a very cost-effective and practical exercise – providing you with a tailored solution to meet your exact needs and requirements.
Let's face it – what do you actually use your garage for at the moment? It's a fact that in recent years, cars are generally getting much bigger and houses a lot smaller. Years ago, the family car had to be protected from the harsh elements, however, as technology has advanced, cars are routinely galvanised, negating the need for garage parking. Car ports are also becoming very popular – allowing for easier parking outside of the door and protection from the weather.
As a result, garages tend to turn into unused spaces or they get filled up with junk or un-used gardening equipment. The majority of households will have fitness equipment, toys or memorabilia stored in their garages – quite often, it will take some effort to dispose of these items, so they tend to sit in garages for years or even decades. In the meantime, we are struggling to find the space that we need in our homes.
