A property having a garage can greatly increase its value. However, often these rooms are used simply for storage and not much else; leaving a prized living space underutilised. East Hertfordshire and North Essex is lucky enough to be home to a variety of properties with garages – making the area prime country for some clever garage conversions.
Refresh East Hertfordshire and North Essex have worked on a whole host of garage conversions throughout the region, applying their conception-to-completion project management with the hiring of expert tradespeople to ensure all of the jobs are completed to the highest possible standard.
A garage can be converted in to just about any room imaginable, but locally, Refresh have worked on converting garages into:
- Additional bedrooms (with en-suites)
- Home gyms
- Cinema rooms
- Smart storage spaces
- Living areas
- Home offices
The most popular garage conversion trend over the last few years through Herts and Essex has been extending home office space; but this is perhaps a given throughout the tumultuous two years of ever-extending work-from-home orders. Many families are also choosing clever conversions into additional bedrooms in order to future proof their homes as they grow; both with and without additional WC facilities.
Garage conversions comes in all shapes and sizes, but a minimal refurb can be managed from around £3,000 upwards. More ambitious conversion projects can come in at anywhere from £7,000 - £15,000+. Refresh offers free and completely no-obligation home visits to scope out your conversion works and provide an accurate quote.
Refresh operates worldwide and our reputation for excellence is cemented through our repeated formula for success: overseeing every aspect of a property project to ensure that every detail is taken care of.
LPAs (Local Planning Authorities) don’t often assert the power for a planning permission requirement over garage conversions but there are some cases in which it is needed: for example, in the case of extensions, where the property is situated in a conservation area or listed, or where the converted room will change the primary usage of the home. If planning permission is a necessity before conversion works begin, the Refresh team will complete the process for the homeowner; including all relevant paperwork, creating any amendments to renovation plans and communicating with all appropriate parties.
