Garage Extension Ideas & Considerations
There are many reasons why homeowners choose to convert and extend their garages, and there are numerous ways you can convert your garage to suit your needs.
Projects you can consider for your garage conversions include:
- Bathrooms – Deciding to section off your garage and build an extra bathroom for your home is always a value add. Not only can it increase your property value, but if you live in a family home and share one bathroom, an extra one would be a welcomed home improvement.
- Living Spaces – This kind of garage conversion can significantly increase the value of your home and can bring in an extra income if you convert your garage into a granny flat that you rent out. If you have the room for it, you can have a fully-functional living space built, complete with all the fixtures anyone could need to live comfortably.
- Bedrooms – As families grow, so does the need for extra bedrooms. Alternatively, you might need to build a guest bedroom for family visits.
