Homeowners are opting to convert their garages to kitchens for a host of reasons. One of the main reasons for creating extra living space by converting garages is to cater for new arrivals, though many people choose to renovate their garages when they live in modestly-sized homes and require more space. People have been converting their basements and attics for many years, but it’s only recently that garage conversions have started to grow in popularity. You can transform your garage into an office, lounge or extra bedroom, though growing numbers of people are using the extra space for kitchens.
Many people seeking extra space within their homes are faced with two choices: move house or make changes to their existing property. In many cases, the latter is more practical and convenient than the former.
If you don’t drive, converting your garage may seem especially appealing, but many motorists are opting to keep their vehicles on their drives in return for valuable extra space. You can also add substantial value to your property by converting your garage, with the figure that you pay for the renovation often being greatly eclipsed by the increase in asking price.
Garage conversions can be completed in a very short time-frame, causing minimal disruption for you, your family and neighbours. You don’t need to build anything from scratch and you won’t usually require planning permission as long as there is no increase in the size of your home. You will need building regulations as you are converting your garage into habitable space. Once you have converted your garage into a kitchen, you can use your existing kitchen for a range of other purposes.
At Creating Better Homes, we have carried out a large number of garage-to-kitchen conversions over the years and can talk to you in-depth about your tastes and requirements in order to design a new space that you can be proud of. We have decades of renovation and refurbishment experience to draw upon and can use our knowledge to advise you on the best ways to make the most of your space and incorporate all the kitchen facilities that you desire. If your garage isn’t currently serving much of a purpose but you feel you would benefit from freeing up your space, we are eager to hear from you.
We can complete your project to the highest of standards and provide you with a kitchen that you can be proud of for many years to come. We are honoured to be Which?
