As the UK heads into its third national lockdown, we’re certainly spending a lot more time at home than we would usually like – and we could be feeling a lack of space far more than ever before.

If you’ve looked around your home over the last year and thought ‘I could have sworn it used to feel bigger than this’, then you’re not alone! Three national lockdowns have left homeowners everywhere putting their properties under the microscope and seeing their spaces differently – and many might be wondering if it’s time to sell. However, don’t be too hasty!

If you’re feeling a little claustrophobic in your current home and have started to long for a little more space, moving isn’t your only option – especially if you have a garage on your property that’s currently not being used to its full potential.  Why not give us a call and see just what a transformation a garage conversion could make to your home?

Here are just a few reasons why now is the perfect time for a garage conversion.

More Time To Get It Just Right

As we’ve already said, the national lockdown means we’re all spending a lot more time at home – so why not put that extra time at home to good use?

If you’re feeling the lockdown boredom setting in, then this sort of extended home improvement project may be exactly what you need to give you a lift and leave you feeling inspired, and you’ll have a beautiful new space to enjoy at the end of it!

With the UK having spent over ten months in and out of lockdown, you probably feel as though you’ve binged everything that Netflix has to offer. Why not fire up your computer and create a vibrant mood board, full of ideas you can use within your garage conversion once it’s complete?

Home improvements can be a demanding thing to take on whilst juggling your work life, home life and social life. With so much less going on at the moment, this is the perfect time to take on that long-awaited garage conversion. You’ll have much more time to give it your full attention, and get it exactly as you want it.

Added Resale Value

While a garage conversion may leave you abandoning your plans to sell and loving the home you’re already in, it may be just as beneficial to have a garage conversion completed before putting your home on the market either way!

A high-quality garage conversion could add around 20% onto the resale value of your home, as they are such an attractive feature to potential buyers, thanks to their versatility and the extra living space that they provide. If you’re planning on putting your home on the market any time soon, you’re no doubt looking around your home for opportunities to add on some extra resale value – and it doesn’t get much more effective than adding a garage conversion.

By having your garage converted into a high-quality, well-designed extra living space,  you’re sure to leave potential buyers excited and wondering what they could do with it for themselves – with a garage conversion completed to a great standard, the possibilities are endless.

If you’re really looking to add some value, why not have your garage converted into an extra bedroom or bright, spacious bathroom? Taking your current home from a 2-bed to a 3-bed could have a huge positive impact on your resale value, and could really boost the selling-power of your home once you put it on the market.

An Extra Versatile New Space

We briefly hit on this above, but the versatility of a garage conversion is what really gives it the ‘wow’ factor and makes it such a long-standing positive addition to your home. This brand new space, once you have it, can be used for a huge range of different things!

You can keep it simple with an extra living room, home office, bedroom or dining area – or you can really get creative.

We’ve all seen the homes of top celebrities on television and wondered what it would be like to have our own gym, cinema room or home bar. With a garage conversion, you can! This new space will give you the perfect opportunity to use your imagination and work it into the perfect new home area for you, whether you’re looking to add space for work, play or relaxation.

Best of all, once your garage conversion is completed, there’s no reason why you can’t play around with your use of the room years down the line and turn it into something new once again!

Whatever you choose to do with it, surely it makes more sense than leaving your garage mostly unused? Make the most of every part of your home and give yourself the chance to use your garage space to its full potential.
