Reclaim your home with a Playroom Garage Conversion.

Little children = massive toys and cluttered rooms. A dedicated play space helps the entire home function as intended while allowing the kids complete freedom in their own space.

Playroom Benefits

Creativity can get a little messy, contain the craziness in a single room and relish closing the door on a hard days playtime. 

Bedroom Space

Modern bedrooms can be a little tight on space. Getting the large toys out of bedrooms allows more room for clothes. Additionally it focusses the room a a place to wind down and sleep. 

Additional Value

A playroom garage conversion will add significant monetary value to your homes price tag. Additionally it helps you to reclaim the show home feel in your living room.

FAQ

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.
