Garage Conversion Ideas
A garage conversion project is one of the most exciting home renovation projects for homeowners. It’s an opportunity for them to let their imagination run wild! When converting your garage into another room, you’re only limited by your imagination and building regulations. Here are some great garage conversion ideas:
- Home gym
- Guest bedroom
- Kid play area
- Home theatre
- Large bathroom
Before embarking on a garage conversion journey, be sure to check your building regulations. Although rare, certain neighborhoods may prohibit garage conversions. Others may have strict restrictions regarding what you can and cannot turn your garage into.
Converting Your Garage Can Boost Your Property Value
If you’re planning on selling your home soon, converting your garage is a great way to drive up the property value! If a conversion is done in an area where there is still plenty of space for homeowners to park off the street, it can increase the home’s value by 6% or more. Keep in mind, a conversion in an area where parking is a premium can result in lost value.
A conversion is also a great way to add to your house without spending an absurd amount of money. Depending on your location, building an additional room could cost anywhere from $20,000-$60,000. A garage renovation, on the other hand, costs around $11,000 on average, potentially saving you tens of thousands of dollars.
Project We Have Completed
We have recently worked with a client in the Woodland Hills area, to convert their garage into a two-bedroom, one-bathroom living space. The client had a double car garage that was 400 square feet. We added 250 square feet which allowed us to add two bedrooms, a bathroom, and a kitchen.
We also added an ac/heating unit and a tankless water heater. Adding an ac or heating unit to your garage isn’t something that’s only reserved for bedrooms and living areas. If you want to convert your garage, we highly recommend at least insulating your garage and in warmer climates, adding an ac unit.
