What are the trends in Garage Conversions?

Garage conversions throughout Derry-Londonderry and North Antrim are growing in popularity and most recently we’ve seen demand for them to be converted into extra bedrooms, sometimes even with en-suites or to be rented out short-term on the likes of Airbnb, as well as lots of home offices; an obvious impact of the prolonged work-from-home orders through the coronavirus pandemic. Garage conversions don’t need to be grand transformations however – instead they can still be used for vehicles or storage, just with more efficient space-managing design!
