Great Ways to Maximise your home: extend your kitchen in garage conversion
Are you using space efficiently in your home? One of the best ways to maximise your living area is to put a kitchen in garage conversion. If your garage is currently used to store tools, old bikes, and long-forgotten pieces of furniture, then you could think about transforming it with a garage conversion.
Kitchen extensions are a great way to add value and space to your home. Adding more space with a kitchen in garage conversion without the costly disruption of moving to a larger home can be a win-win for your family.
With your old kitchen removed, and a new kitchen extension as part of your garage conversion, your home can be remodelled to suit your needs perfectly.
And, let’s face it, who couldn’t use extra room?

Your new modern kitchen in garage conversion
Converting your garage to allow you more usable space provides a great opportunity to add a modern and contemporary element to your home. Garage conversions are the perfect candidate for centrepiece features such as large windows and bi-fold doors to let in natural light and a seamless transition into your outdoor space.
Modern energy-saving features such as contemporary radiators, underfloor heating, and eco appliances, are all easily added.
Having a new kitchen in garage conversion provides you the opportunity to add your own personality, choosing from luxury materials and combinations. From the floor, walls, tiles, counter tops, and cabinets, you can choose a beautiful material in colour and finish to suit your budget.
Garage extensions make for perfect open-plan kitchen and living spaces. Get the luxury lifestyle with none of the hassle of having to move homes.
Increase the value of your property with a kitchen extension
Kitchens are one of the most value-increasing aspects of any property. Having a large, well-equipped, modern kitchen will instantly add money on to your home. A kitchen can literally make the decision for a prospective buyer, as very few want to have to embark on installing a new one as soon as they move in.
And, even if you plan to stay in your property with your family for many years, installing a new kitchen is futureproofing in case you do ever decide to sell.
Is planning permission required to build a kitchen in garage conversion?
Usually, you don’t need planning permission for your garage conversion project. So long as the work is internal and does not involve extending the garage, your conversion should be a permitted development (allowed without planning permission being needed).
However, if you are planning on converting an external garage extension into a new home for a family member, then you may need to talk to your local authority and apply for planning permission. If this is the case, we will manage all aspects of this for you as part of our service.
With great connections in the local area, we have the perfect insight into the planning application process and can take the stress off your hands if your garage extension ideas do require it.
Other uses for a garage conversion
Although a kitchen in garage conversion is the most popular choice, there are lots of other potential uses for the additional space.
With the change in how people use their homes since the covid pandemic, many people are thinking about garage conversion ideas to extend their living space and avoid the costly decision to move house.
Here are a few ideas of what your garage conversion could be used for:
A playroom or games room
Perfect for children whose toys are taking over the house. Or for adults who want a separate place to set up video games or the poker table!
A cinema room
A garage conversion would make a brilliant at-home cinema. Get yourself a popcorn maker and cinema chairs for the full affect – a perfect way to spend a chilled-out weekend!
Offices at home are much more popular now than ever before. At the beginning of the pandemic, many people were using makeshift office spaces but now at-home and hybrid working arrangements are the norm, many want to set up a permanent and professional office.
Maybe you got used to online workouts and yoga sessions at home when gyms were closed and now long for a place to practise and permanently set up your equipment. Creating an at-home gym is a great idea for a garage conversion.
An en-suite bedroom
Perfect for your guests to stay over with their own private space or to futureproof for an elderly relative.
Lockdown in the UK saw many people turning unused spaces into at-home pubs. Go the full way with a dart board and pool table for added showstopper points and make your home the centre of your social life, too.
There are lots of reasons why a garage conversion or kitchen extension could benefit your home – which one would you consider?
