Need some extra space? Consider these options for a gorgeous garage conversion
If you find yourself running a little tight on space in your home, converting your garage can be an affordable and convenient solution. Remember that, when converting a garage, you need to consider how the space relates to rest of the house. If the garage backs onto a living room, then a home office or playroom is perfect. If it backs onto a bedroom, consider something more suitable.
Here are a few different ideas of what to use your new space for:builder chelmsford
Kitchen or Diner
As long as the garage and kitchen share a wall, this is amongst the most popular options. With very little expense you can gain a brighter and much larger kitchen. Just be careful when planning to make allowances for plumbing, gas and power lines.
A converted garage can give you somewhere to put the kids playroom, with a TV, comfortable seating and bright colours. This will keep the mess and clutter of a kids room away from the rest of the house. Just be sure to soundproof the room properly playrooms can be the noisiest room in the house.
Having an extra room for guests (or a new member of the family) is always an exciting option. If you want to create this type of room, it may be best to place a wall or sofa bed (for added space). Its also always recommended to make sure the garage backs onto a hallway or living space. Accessing an extra bedroom through the master bathroom can just be awkward.
If you need somewhere to work or you just need a personal study, a converted garage can be a perfect and affordable solution. Because the old garage door needs to be replaced, it is a simple matter to put enough windows so as to get plenty of natural light. If the garage shares a wall with your familys living space, this is even more convenient. You can easily access the home office while maintain a logical flow in the house.
An unattached double garage can be beautifully converted into a granny flat. The fact that it is separate from the house gives guests some privacy, and it should be a simple matter to plumb for a bathroom. Once again, when replacing the garage doors consider the best window and entrance layout to maximise natural light.
