Empty garage? A garage conversion is the answer

You don’t use your garage? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one.

Millions of UK homes have a garage, but millions of people don’t use them. In fact, a very small percentage of those millions of homes use their garage: only 10% of home owners who have a garage store their car in it.

There’s obviously many reasons why they aren’t used for their original purpose, but the purpose they’re most often used for is to store clutter that has no place in the rest of the home.

Obviously, this suggests that the garage is a wasted space. With so much extra room available to make your life easier, it’s time that you made full use of it: a garage conversion is the answer.

Although the majority of these suggestions do need a conversion of your garage, any of these rooms that you can create increase the value of your home dramatically. Here’s some ideas for what you could use your new garage for.


The oft-used example, changing your garage into a bedroom is our first suggestion as to what you can do with your space.

People often to decide to move to a new house because they’ve ran out of bedrooms. Maybe there’s a new addition to the family, or someone decided to move back in with their parents. Whatever the reason, converting your garage into a bedroom solves the issue.

If you decide that you want to move to a new house years later, the value of your property will be greatly increased. This means that you should make a profit on this substantial investment.

Bathroom congestion every morning? That’s solved easily enough: turn this space into a bedroom with en suite!

Play room:

Tidying up after children is difficult: you’ve tidied the whole house, bottom to top; you go back downstairs, only to find toys strewn all over the living room floor again!

It’s certainly the epitome of frustration, but that’s easily solved by having a designated play room. A play room is the perfect play to store all the toys, and the ideal place for the child to play with them. This means minimum disruption to the rest of the house.

This option will also make the rest of the house appear more spacious, as the toys are consigned to elsewhere!

Home gym:

Whilst many people have dreams of visiting the gym, it takes some motivation to actually do it. After all, you’ve been at work all day, you’re tired out, and you can’t wait for your dinner. If this sounds like your scenario, there’s one quick, effective fix to your issues: a home gym!

With a home gym, you can exercise at your leisure from the comfort and safety of your home. And although it might seem cheaper to go to the gym, within a few years, you will have made back the money that you have invested in creating your own gym.
