One of the most popular home remodelling projects that many homeowners choose when upgrading their homes is loft and garage conversions. Both add extra space to the property and significantly increase its value. Whether you want to add an extra room or extend an existing part of the house, you can benefit from the added space, your home’s enhanced look, and a cheaper alternative to doing a full home extension. Here are some creative ways that you can enjoy your garage and loft conversion.
What Garage Conversions Can Give You
Garage conversions are versatile ways to renovate your home. At the end of the project, you can have an extra bedroom, another living room, a home office, a home gym, a home cinema, and even a dedicated tea room. Look for contractors that can do bespoke home improvements that take care of building regulations, flooring, electrics, plumbing, insulated walls, painting, and redecorating.
Ways to Use a Garage Loft Conversion
As creative as you can get with garage loft conversions, it’s also good to know what options work best for this kind of project so you can get the most use out of your new space. Here are some top ideas you can discuss with your home renovation contractors for your garage loft conversion.
A detached garage is a perfect space to transform into a dedicated home office. Working from home has proven to be difficult with many distractions present in the house, so a separate office space in what used to be the garage would be a very welcome change.
Whether you need a space to keep your vinyl or want a dedicated place for a sewing machine and different cloth samples, garage loft conversions make great hobby rooms. They’re very spacious, so you can fit many different objects for each family member’s hobby into a large, open-plan room. It’s especially great for musical hobbies as it is separated from the rest of the house, providing natural soundproofing and minimising disturbances.
Leisure rooms sound like another version of a hobby room, but it is more for relaxation than anything else. You can opt for a “man cave,” a home cinema, or just another living room with more comfortable furniture and some entertainment pieces perfect for a teenage hang out. Having the leisure room away from the house gives your teens a sense of much-needed privacy and your home a sense of peace and quiet, as well. Consider adding a pool table and a home bar to your garage loft, and your guests will never want to leave!
Since loft and garage conversions provide a good bit of privacy, it also makes a good space for guest quarters, especially if you don’t already have a guest room in your home. It can be customised to include beds, a kitchenette and dining space, and separate baths for your guests. You might even consider sprucing the space up for individual renters looking for small spaces and short-term leases.
There are many ways to enjoy a newly renovated garage loft. Perhaps you want a masters bedroom separate from the house that is wonderfully and indulgently yours. The family might need a place to unwind, whether it’s a space for leisure or a room for all sorts of hobbies. The sky’s the limit with how you can customise your garage to suit your needs. Now all you need is the right contractor to make your ideas into a reality!
