Have you ever given much thought to how you use your garage? With only 24% of UK homeowners using their garage to store a car, the chances are that your garage is, in fact, a wasted opportunity. The majority of the items stored in your garage would perhaps fair perfectly well if hidden away in the garden shed so why not spend a little time tidying up or maybe it’s even time for that car boot sale… and let’s think about how you could put your garage to much better use?

Add value to your property

More and more people are realising the potential of their garage and choosing to convert it into a more useful space. A garage conversion can add up to 10% to the value of your property and this popular home improvements project is one of the most cost effective ways to add value which is always very handy to know if you were planning to move on at some point in the future!

Improve your living space

More and more people dream of having that extra bedroom or a bedroom with an en-suite shower room. You could extend your existing kitchen or create a study or a home cinema room; these are just some of the great possibilities. You might even find the need for a downstairs bathroom is becoming more prevalent, either way; a garage conversion could be the solution you’ve been looking for.


If the idea of a garage conversion appeals to you, you’ll probably be further encouraged by the fact that planning permission is not usually required to convert an attached or an integral garage. This is because such a conversion is normally classed as Permitted Development, even so it’s always worth checking with your local planning department just in case there are any special conditions in your area; however, Building Regulations approval would be required because the work is classed as controlled work. If you choose to select R T Property Improvements of Poole to carry out this work, we would of course be very happy to make any necessary applications on your behalf.
