More and more homeowners in the Los Angeles area are choosing to add value and livable space to their homes by converting their garage. While any remodel can be daunting, Cavalier Builders have the skill and experience to help you get the most out of your house. Whether you need more space to work, relax, sleep, or even rent out, turning your garage into a room is a practical way to achieve your goals. Out of the many potential benefits to be had with this type of renovation, here are our top three.
1. Garage Conversions Add Value To Your Home
With the housing market being so hot this benefit is bound to be a clincher for many homeowners. Whether your conversion increases the number of bedrooms, adds an appealing recreational space, or simply makes your home feel more spacious it’s easy to see how the right changes could add worth.
In fact, experts say that a well done garage conversion can add as much as 10% to your home’s value. And if that’s your goal you can work with professionals to tailor your renovations to give you maximum impact.
But that’s not the only way your garage conversion can help in paying for itself. Some homeowners are thinking a little more outside the box to make the project worth it. By converting garages into more complete spaces many people are generating income by renting them out.
Or you can take another approach and give yourself the space to start or expand that side business you’ve dreamed of. From traditional rentals, to Airbnb’s, to your own home business space there’s more than one way to make your conversion well worth the cost.
2. Garage Conversions Give Your Family More Living Space
Let’s face it, most people don’t use their garages for their cars. And, while it might be convenient to have a place to keep boxes of forgotten junk, changing that space from locker to livable makes a whole lot of sense.
With the right plan garages can transform into home offices, spare bedrooms, game rooms, or fitness rooms. And that’s just the start of the possibilities. This not only adds new functions to your home but it also takes the pressure off your other rooms by providing more space for you to simply live life.
3. Garage Conversions Are More Cost Effective Than Adding On
Renovations are expensive, there’s no way around that. But when you’re looking to spread out, converting your garage is typically much more cost efficient than trying to put a whole new addition on your house. It’s simple math really. A lot of the savings come down to the pre-existing structure. Your garage already has a foundation, walls, and a roof and these elements alone set you ahead thousands of dollars in raw materials and labor costs. While the budget will vary project to project, working with experienced professionals can help your garage conversion achieve the space you need at the best price.
4. Garage Conversion Is Tailor Made For Your Needs
The beauty of garage conversion is that you have infinite possibilities and can personalize your space for your specific needs. If you want to have your own private gym or a music studio, that’s a possibility or a place for your kids to play where they can make noise and be messy you can do that too. If you can’t afford a full conversion right away, you can always just start with small projects that make your garage more useful and livable. Especially if you have a two or three car garage space, you can leave part of it to its original use and change the rest into something new. Another great advantage of a partial conversion is that it can be easily undone and the garage repurposed for whatever need arises.
