Once upon a time, the garage was for the family car, but with more of us needing additional space in our homes, garage conversions that create a home office, rumpus room, guest suite, or a home gym, are becoming increasingly popular.

One of the most popular reasons for a garage conversion in Melbourne Inner East is to create additional living space, whether that’s to generate income as an AirBnB, establish a home office, or ensure there’s plenty of rooms for growing teens - and their cohort of friends!
Converting your garage into a self-contained unit will enable you to earn additional income and increase the resale value of your home. If you don’t want full-time tenants in your garage, renting the newly converted space out on AirBnB or simply having it for family and friends to stay, will ensure you have overflow accommodation whenever you need it.
Alternatively, a rumpus or games room will ensure growing children are entertained for hours. A well-insulated garage with pool table, TV, games cupboard, couches and bean bags will keep noise and mess away from other living areas in the home.

Given the range of options available to you when it comes to a garage conversion, determining a price for your project requires a bit more detail. Are you wanting a simple conversion with insulation, fresh paint, carpet and heating, or are you looking for something that is more complex and requires additional walls to reconfigure the layout.
Garage conversions that have been undertaken by our Renovation Consultants before have ranged in price between $5,000* and $50,000* plus. Your local Melbourne Inner East Renovation Consultant will be able to give you a better indication of cost at your free, no-obligation, consultation.
