Garage conversions have become a growing trend in recent years and its very easy to see why. Economic uncertainty, issues in the housing market and the need for additional living space are just a few of the reasons why some homeowners may choose to convert their garage oppose to selling up and moving.
It amazes the team here at ABi Garage Doors Ltd that a large number of people still disregard a conversion – here’s what they are missing out on.
Added value to your home
A high-quality and well-executed garage conversion has been proven to add up to 10% to a home’s value, offering a fantastic return on investment when it finally comes to selling the property. A garage conversion could cost you a couple of thousands of pounds, but if your property is worth £200,000, it could well be worth £220,000 when you sell – that’s a profit of £18,000.
Additional living space
Depending on how you’re going to convert your garage, the space could be used for a number of different ways, but they all create extra living space. It could be particularly handy if you have a baby on the way and need another bedroom, but can’t afford moving costs – don’t worry, a garage conversion will sort you out.
Tailor made for you
Nobody else is designing the space created by your conversion (unless you hire someone), meaning you have the freedom to decorate and convert it exactly how you want, tailored to your needs. This isn’t the case for if you move home for additional space as everything is already built there for you.
