The increasingly popular trend of converting a garage has significantly risen recently. Homeowners are increasingly content at parking their cars on driveways or in the street so they can utilise the valuable garage space in different capacities. No doubt that the rise in people required to or choosing to work from home has contributed to this with garages so suitable for office space. Investing in a conversion short term can prove effective long-term in terms of a home-gym. Not paying expensive membership fees and training at home is a luxury many opt for now and again, the garage is the perfect place. Refresh Brighton has also completed work for people seeking additional living space with a garage converted into an out-house, granny annexe or just an extra bedroom.
Refresh Brighton deploys an experienced team of trained professionals that are capable of a huge range of garage conversion options. These include:
- Home office design
- Home gym installation
- Kitchen extension
- Workshop or Studio
- Granny Annexe
- Outhouses/Summer house
- Extra bedroom
Whether you seek some extra income by using the detached converted living space as serviced accommodation, to support an elderly relative, or create a home gym area, Refresh Brighton can accommodate your garage conversion needs. Additional benefits of converting a garage include;
- Increasing the value of your home
- Providing extra space for your family to enjoy
- Rent the space out as an office for additional income
- Save money on gym fees by training at home
- Create an out-house space for time to yourself
A standard garage conversion for living space should cost between £5,000 and £15,000+. This of course depends on the materials used, the scale of the project and the exact specifications of your chosen conversion. For example, if plumbing or significant electrical work is needed then there will be a rise in the total cost of the project. Garage conversions are a cost efficient option for additional living space in comparison with a basic 3m by 4m house extension which could cost upwards of £25,000+.
*Please note that these are rough estimates only. For a high-level indication of what your unique design will cost, the Refresh Process is designed to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.

As long as all of the work for the conversion project is completed along the interior of the garage to make it an inhabitable area then planning permission for a garage conversion is generally not required. Additionally, if the plans do not require an enlargement of the building, extra planning consent will not be necessary for the conversion.
