10 Fantastic Garage Conversion Ideas

Got a garage?
If so, what do you use it for?
If your answer isn’t “storing your car”, why not consider a garage conversion?

There’s so much more you could be doing with that space – your imagination is the only limit… Experienced builders Convert Your Garage (www.convertyourgarage.net) have an enviable reputation for great customer service. They’ve carried out around 200 garage conversions across the North West, including Bury, Manchester, Bolton, Prestwich and Whitefield. They’ve converted garages for a wide variety of clients, for a wide range of purposes. Here are 10 great garage conversion ideas…

1. Grandma or grandpa can move in with their own bedroom

These days, it’s not unusual for three generations of a family to share a house. If you’d like to have their grandparents staying (permanently or temporarily), a garage conversion can provide them with their very own room.

2. Your own personal games arcade

Remember that private arcade you dreamed about when you were young, full of videogames and pinball machines? Convert your garage and it could be a reality (even if it’s actually just somewhere to play on a games console).

3. Work from home with a fully-functioning office

Create a bespoke home office in a converted garage and you’ll have everything you need to immerse yourself in your work – a true distraction-free separation from the rest of the house.

4. Work out at home with a fully-featured gym

Save on gym fees – and on time – by creating your own private gym. It’s never been more convenient to work out!

5. A guest bedroom

Great for old friends visiting, children’s sleepovers or family parties and occasions – much better than having guests sleep on the sofa.

6. Shhh… your own in-house library

Bit of a bookworm? Then why not convert your garage into somewhere to show off your impressive collection of books, and to enjoy them in peace and quiet?

7. Make some noise in a music room

At the opposite end of the spectrum, if music’s your thing why not move your hi-fi and music collection into a bespoke listening room? Or if you prefer playing to listening, how about a home studio?

8. Cook up something special

If your culinary aspirations are limited by the size of your kitchen, why not convert your garage into one that’s bigger? You could be the next Jamie or Nigella in the making…

9. Get deeper into movies with a home cinema

High-quality home cinema equipment has never been more affordable – and going to the cinema has never been more expensive. Enjoy movies in style at home by converting your garage into a private home cinema.

10. Create and repair in your own workshop

Good with your hands? Your garage conversion could become a new workshop, whether it’s for DIY and carpentry, or for arts and crafts.
