Garage Conversion Inspiration

We’ve pulled together a few ideas on what you could look to convert your garage into!

Home Cinema

Extend your Kitchen

Convert your garage into more kitchen/utility space!

A very popular option by our customers is to use their converted garage to extend their kitchen. You can make a spacious open plan kitchen with room for dining. In most circumstances we've been able to add a roof lantern in replacement of the garage foor to give a nice feature element and let in an abundance of light.

Another popular option is to use the garage space as a utility room. This free's up space within the kitchen and offer the potential for a back door, and can also add a downstairs WC (very useful if your family is growing).

Home Office

Convert your Garage into a Home Office

Another great garage conversion idea is to design a home office. This can make perfect sense as garages are usually located away from the main living areas and allow for a self-contained entrance for work-related visitors.

Having a designated work space means you can set your workstation up as you need, and you don’t have to worry about the room having a dual purpose.

Home Gym

Convert your garage into a home gym

Fitness fans may enjoy installing workout equipment in their homes, but it can prove problematic if this equipment has to be located in existing living space. Housing a home gym in a garage conversion is a great way to avoid large items like a treadmill or elliptical machine in your living room.

Having a dedicated space will allow you to kit out the space with hard-wearing, slip-resistant flooring that may not be suited to other areas of your home. You could also consider adding an air conditioning unit or soundproofing measures.

Kids Playroom/Games Room

Convert your garage into a Kids Playroom/Games Room

Using the space as a playroom and keeping it partially open to an adjacent kitchen makes it possible to supervise younger children while carrying out day-to-day jobs. Make sure you add loads of storage options for toys.

Garage conversions are also the ideal spot for a second living room for older children to relax in — keeping the inevitable noise away from your own relaxing spaces and avoiding squabbles over what to watch on TV.
