Garage Conversion Specialist in South East London

A garage converted into a home working space

Garage space is at a premium in the capital, so if you’re lucky enough to have one, consider yourself hugely property privileged! But are you using your garage space to its full potential? Many of us end up using our garages just for storage space (for cars or other accumulated ‘stuff’) and so the room goes unused; often because the space is considered too cold or concrete to do much else with. Yet garages can be comprehensively converted into a whole variety of rooms, so if you can park your car elsewhere, why not do so?
In South East London, Refresh Renovations work on a variety of garage conversions in homes of all shapes, sizes and type.

What types of Garage Conversion do Refresh offer?

Garages can be converted into just about any room, and Refresh have worked on garage conversions to change such spaces into:
- Additional bedrooms (with en-suites)
- Cinema rooms
- Smart storage spaces
- Living areas
- Home offices

What are the current Garage Conversion trends in South East London? 

With repeated lockdowns and work-at-home orders put in place during the last two years, it is no surprise that more homeowners than ever are choosing to create home offices and work studio space in their garages. There has also been rising demand for the addition of extra bedrooms in converted garages – to cater for growing families but also to create bedrooms for rentals and lodgers (an increasingly popular additional income method for those in the capital). 

How much does a Garage Conversion cost?

Garage conversions can be done simply or comprehensively. The cheapest garage conversions are those that just require some interior design but more exhaustive conversions may include the installation of insulation, window and door fitting, plumbing and electrical installation. The larger the scope of the conversion, the more expensive the cost will be.
Refresh Renovations specialists visit homes for free to provide accurate quotes after an inspection of the space and an understanding gained of the project at hand. There is no obligation to proceed after one of these visits and a specialist can return to additional inspections or meetings as required.

Why choose Refresh for a Garage Conversion?

Refresh manage garage conversions as end-to-end projects; overseeing the entire job from conception to completion with a dedicated Project Manager in place. This provides open and transparent communication between all involved parties as well as continued adherence to the project plan for a successful conversion.

Will I need planning permission for my Garage Conversion? 

Unless significant structural renovations are taking place, it is unlikely that planning permission will be required. Where such external administration is needed, the Refresh Project Manager will file, apply and appeal the documentation on the homeowners’ behalf, so disruption is minimal. 

What areas do Refresh South East London operate in?

Refresh South East London offer Garage Conversion services in Bexleyheath, Sidcup, Woolwich, Forest Hill, and the surrounding areas.

Your Style,
Your Budget,
Our Expertise

Refresh®’s process supports a bespoke design and build: a renovation tailored to your lifestyle requirements and taste. Your local Garage Conversion renovation consultant will manage every aspect for you - working to keep everything on track.

Step 1

Briefing / Initial Consultation

The first thing your Garage Conversion renovation consultant will want to know is what it is that you want to achieve through your home renovation. In this initial consultation, you can throw all of your ideas on the table - your consultant will then tailor them to your property and budget.

Step 2

Concept and Feasibility

With a clear understanding of your renovation goals, your Garage Conversion consultant can arrange for an architectural concept to be drawn up. This allows your Garage Conversion consultant to assess whether or not your ideas are feasible, and allows you to point out any changes you would like in the design - before any work begins.

Step 3

Working Drawings and Costing

Next, working drawings will be developed. These will take into account the engineering, structural, design and aesthetic decisions you have made. If you would like to make any further changes, now is the time to do so. From there, your Garage Conversion consultant will present you with a fixed-quote as well as a contract.

Step 4

Build / Construction Stage

Finally, you get to witness your project transition from the page to your property! Every aspect of the build will be managed for you, allowing you to carry on with your everyday life. Your Garage Conversion consultant will do everything in their power to keep your project on schedule so that it can be completed within a set timeframe and budget.

Step 5

Your Finished Renovation

The final stage is for your local Garage Conversion consultant to ensure that all Council documentation is completed and you have the necessary Code of Compliance documentation. Congratulations – your renovation is complete!
