Kitchen Garage Conversions

Extend it, move it, open plan it, whatever your ideas we can make it a reality. 

Kitchen Conversion Benefits

We can redesign your entire ground floor plan extending the kitchen and dining space into one large open plan room. 

Open Plan

Architects of the past did not envisage the kitchen being the heart of the home. Let us change that with a complete floorplan renovation. 

Additional Value

A modern open plan kitchen diner is a desirable feature and will boost the value of your home

Grand Designs

At the same time as converting the garage we can add doors to the rear of the property to give that inside out kitchen BBQ entertaining space you see on TV.

Kitchen Diner Floorplan Layouts

For this type of project we think floorplans are essential. We plan the all important kitchen triangle and the cupboard layouts using accurate measurements in the latest CAD software.

This means you know exactly what will fit in your new space before the project starts. 

We are happy to manage the project and work with other kitchen suppliers and designers if required.

Kitchen Conversion Costs

This is one of the most expensive garage conversions to undertake as there is lots of work which may be structural. Plumbing and electrics will also cost more than a regular room conversion. However, this type of conversion will also boost the resale value of your home more than any other type of garage conversion. Read our basic conversion cost guide or get in touch for a personal quote.

  • New matching window
  • Creation of new access
  • Extension of electrical system & points
  • Extension of heating system & radiator
  • Insulation and plaster boarding
  • Internal joinery to match existing
  • Decoration 
  1. 1
    Plans, drawings, technical specifications and submitting the building regulations application are all included. Please note you will need to pay the local authorities inspection fee directly to the council which is normally around £350 including VAT. 
  2. 2
    We supply all materials taking care to match the new bricks with the existing brickwork of your house. We also match the details of your original build replicating the soldier course details under windows which are often a different contrasting brick to the main brickwork. If you have stone window cills we will liaise with our supplier to have a matching cill produced and delivered to site. 
  3. 3
    Internally we create the new access to the converted space and install a new door. We then insulate the walls and run new services for the extension of the electrical and heating system. Our specialist subcontractors will then connect the electrics and plumbing, once testing is complete we can proceed to plastering your new room. 
  4. 4
    Once plastering is complete we can focus on the finishing details such fitting flooring, matching the skirting boards and internal window cills to the rest of the home. Lastly we provide base decoration with a choice of colours for woodwork.   


Do I need planning permission?

Typically garage conversions do not require planning permission and are covered by permitted development rights. However, there are some instances where planning is required such as in conservation areas and new estates which may have had their permitted development rights removed. Part of our process is to check with the local authority if permission is required and obtain a certificate of lawful development. This certificate can come in useful if you wish to sell your home as it proves without doubt that your garage conversion is compliant. This article on our blog takes a more detailed look at planning permission if you would like to read more. 

what are building regulations?

A minimum set of standards that govern the design and construction of buildings, they are concerned with safety and health of the buildings users and aim to provide a comfortable sage environment. It is worth noting that the standards set by the Building Act are the minimum and higher standards are available and would be encouraged by our team who are happy to talk about upgrading the quality of the materials used. Building regulations for garage conversions are typically concerned with insulation levels and damp proofing. The reason is that the original garage construction was not designed to be habitable and requires insulation to be installed during the build. 

Can we also knock a wall down?

The short answer is yes as anything is possible if the budget is large enough. Altering the layout may require structural work such as the installation of a steel beam. Our surveyor Michael will be able to advise on this and produce a measured survey which the structural engineer will use to specify the size of the beam and produce the calculations for the local building control department approval.  

How much will it cost?

This does depend on the type of garage you have and the type of project as well as the size of the garage. Read our cost article to discover more about average prices. A garage to kitchen conversion including the removal of a structural wall will be considerable more than a garage to dining room conversion or a light garage renovation project without structural works. It is also worth remembering that a well thought out quality conversion will add value to your home. 

Can we retain some of the garage space?

Yes, part conversions are actually one of our most popular requests. For example we can use some of the space to create a W.C or utility room while retaining the front of the garage including the door to access a smaller storage space.
