Should you convert your garage?


The days when your garage’s sole purpose was to protect your car from vandals, the weather and all the other dangers od the outdoors are gone. Converting your garage is the latest hype to hit the scene and it’s easy to see why – but how would it benefit you?

Here are Huddersfield Garage Doors we have come up with a list of reasons as to why converting your garage is a must.

Additional living space

Are you struggling to find space to do day to day tasks? A garage conversion could be the answer to that problem. Naturally, families grow, and unfortunately, your home doesn’t grow with it, so that extra living space is so important.

The space could be used for so many different functions, here are a few:

  • Extra bedroom
  • Home office
  • Gym
  • Man cave
  • Games room

Added value

Arguably the most important benefit to converting your garage is that it can add significant value to your property – a single garage conversion can add up to an extra 10% to your home’s value.

It can also be another stream of income if you decide to rent the space out.

No planning permission

If you require extra living space, one option that may be running through your mind is to add an extension on to your home – this requires planning permission and you may not get it.

But a garage conversion typically doesn’t require any planning permission as the building is already there. The only times you may need planning permission is when you live in a conservation area.
