Convert your garage

Create the perfect home office

Figures released last year showed that Brits are basing themselves at home in record numbers, with more than four million of us regularly working this way. But, to do it successfully, you need a dedicated space away from the rest of the household, where you can work undisturbed, without having to clear away the dining table at every mealtime. A garage conversion offers the perfect solution.

Workout at home

We all value the chance to exercise and stay healthy. But gyms can be expensive, and if you don’t have one near you, there’s the hassle and cost of travelling to work out. Equally, many of us often feel self-conscious using a gym in front of others. A home gym makes it far likelier that you will exercise, and can be a cost-effective long-term solution.

Dine in style

Not every property has the necessary space for eating in space and comfort, which can mean using the kitchen or living room, and it can quickly start to feel cramped. Especially at times like Christmas when you may be catering for more people than usual, convert your garage and life becomes easier all round.

Build the ultimate man cave!

Sometimes, the male of the house just needs to escape the occasional strains of family life and enjoy some privacy. The ‘man cave’ is your own space allowing you to do just that, whether you want to turn the music up, indulge a hobby, watch what you want on the TV or just be left in peace!

Enjoy a clutter-free kitchen with a utility room

Does your kitchen often seem to overflow at the seams? With a utility room, you have somewhere to keep the washing machine, tumble dryer, microwave, dishwasher, ironing board, pet bowls … You could even install a secondary fridge-freezer or sink. Once you have this extra space, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it.
