Thinking about converting your garage? It’s one of the easiest ways of making use of the space that is already available in your property, and working with a specialist in garage conversions Essex property owners trust will ensure that your space reaches its fullest potential. Here are some brilliant benefits of garage conversions.
A space that works for you
One of the main advantages of converting your garage is that you will have a space that works for you and everyone in your household. A trusted garage conversion specialist will have plenty of experience working to meet a homeowner’s unique requirements and will collaborate closely with you at every stage. So, if you really want to ensure your property is tailor-made to suit your needs, a garage conversion could give you that extra living, dining, sleeping or hobby space you’ve been wanting.
No impact on your council tax
Another benefit to converting your garage is that doing so will not affect your council tax. You aren’t increasing the overall footprint of your property, and are instead working with the space that you have. If you were to extend, then you could expect to see an increase in the amount of council tax that you would pay. So, a garage conversion could really help you to save money in the long run!
Adds value to your home
A garage conversion can really add significant value to your home. This depends on what you decide to repurpose the space as – a bedroom with en-suite bathroom can add up to 20% to the value of a property. However, buyers also love home offices, extra living space, and dedicated play areas for children. No one is going to say no to more room in a home, and garage conversions are very popular with property hunters.
Less building work
Converting your garage means far less building work than an extension. As we have already mentioned, you only make changes internally when you convert a garage. This shortens the length of the job massively, which lessens the level of disruption on your property. Of course, some garages may require more work than others, but you can expect that work to be completed within 3-6 weeks. This also means that you can expect to pay much less for a garage conversion, making it a more budget-friendly option for many homeowners.
No loss of natural light
When you extend a property, you are often left with reduced amounts of natural light in some spaces in your home, meaning that you have to add things like roof lights to boost the amount of sunlight in those spaces – which is an additional cost many people do not consider. As you aren’t building over any sources of light with new external walls, a garage conversion is a great option for those who want to keep their home feeling light and airy.
