For some homeowners the garage is a useful space to park a car and to store other things that don't have a place in your home. For others it becomes a wasted space cluttered and messy. Our Refresh Renovations Consultant can help you to identify ways to maximise the potential of your garage to establish a better living space in your existing home.
As more and more homeowners become content with parking their vehicles outside their homes, converting your garage may be the ideal home improvement solution for you.
Adding both space and value to your home, garage conversions can be incredibly useful. Take a look at the main things you should consider when it comes to converting your garage in Surrey.
Garage conversions are somewhat different in that they are often a quick and affordable home renovation option. To get the most from your garage conversion, our Refresh Renovation experts can help you understand the many elements of this type of home improvement.

Electricity and water supply
There are a number of reasons why you may want to consider a garage conversion to be carried out in your home. The main reason being the desire for more space, space that can be used in a number of different and better ways for your family.
A new home office, a space for that newly discovered hobby, or storage space for items that have cluttered up the rest of your home. You could use your converted garage as a utility room, or have it as an extension of your kitchen or living space depending on your current home layout.
You can even use a garage conversion as a playroom for your children or a spare bedroom for frequently visiting guests. The good thing about converting your garage is that it gives you that extra space you need, but in a home that you love.
You will also be potentially adding value to your home, which means if you do eventually decide to move, you can get the maximum money possible when you sell your property.
The cost of a garage conversion will really depend on how much work there is to be carried out and the available space in your current garage. However, if you are planning to budget for your garage conversion, aim to put away between £5,000 and £7,500 in order to pay it.
When it comes to a garage conversion, you are understandably going to want to make sure it is carried out to the best possible standard.
Here at Refresh Renovations we definitely consider ourselves experts in all things related to garage conversions. We are happy to hear about and discuss your home improvement needs and the plans that you have in mind.

Planning permission is a key consideration for any building project. However, it is often the case that you don't need to apply for planning permission as a part of your building plans.
When it comes to converting a garage you may not need planning permission. If the work to be carried out is only internal and does not involve any extension being added to your home, any work should be within permitted development. However, you should always check with an expert before you get to work and make sure you are within the guidelines.
