Things to do


We may just supply and install garage doors throughout Huddersfield, but over the past three decades or so we’ve developed quite an interest in the outbuildings.

While working across the area we’ve seen some rather extravagant conversions over the years, with some turning theirs into bars, offices and even additional bedrooms.

When space tends to be at a premium in the modern Huddersfield property, we completely understand why homeowners are converting their garages into something special – it is, after all, an extremely versatile room when used properly.

To outline some of these conversion ideas, today we’ve picked out three of our personal favourites. You can find them below:

Games room

If the space is available then why not turn your garage into a games room? All that’s really needed is a dartboard. A snooker/pool table is another great addition, and would make the area a great place to socialise with friends.

‘Man cave’, or ‘she shed’

The idea of having a room solely dedicated to whatever you want it to be is understandably fairly appealing. A ‘man cave’ – or ‘she shed’ as it’s becoming increasingly known as – is a great method of doing just that.


Putting some gym or exercise equipment in your garage can persuade you to keep fit over those cold winter months. A treadmill, some good weights and a strong bench should do the job perfectly.

Though we hope that you’ve garnered some inspiration from the three pointers above, we must remind you, as we do with all of our Huddersfield-based customers, that security is the most important thing when it comes to garages.

It doesn’t make much sense, for example, to spruce up your outbuilding yet leave it vulnerable to a break-in by protecting it with a weak door.

Through our relationship with Hörmann, one of the industry’s leading manufacturers, we supply the very best garage doors on the market today. These are unrivalled in strength, and don’t compromise on any appearance aspects either.
