Garage conversions can be significant projects requiring multiple tradespeople on-site at any given time - plumbers, electricians, plasterers, and more. Without an experienced professional at the helm, things can quickly get out of hand and over budget.
At Refresh, we aim to change the way the world renovates and avoid the wastage of time and money so often experienced by homeowners who forego professional guidance. Our planning, design, and building approach has been carefully crafted to streamline the renovation process and alleviate the stress and worry for our clients.
From start to finish, a Renovation Consultant will be your single point of contact, beginning with the initial consultation during which you can explain your budget and vision of what you want to achieve.
Equipped with a clear understanding of your project plans, your local Marlborough Renovation Consultant can arrange for concept drawings and a fixed quote. Homeowners have full control to alter the scope to fit their budget or the designs proposed.
Once the plans and estimate are confirmed, your Renovation Consultant will coordinate qualified tradespeople and source premium materials through their established network of industry professionals, all the while keeping you fully informed of every stage of your renovation project.
Have the extra space but not sure what to do with it? Here are some garage conversion ideas to get you inspired.
A common request for garage conversions in Marlborough is a rumpus room, ideal for growing families with teenagers (and friends) in the house. But a functional alternative is creating an indoor/outdoor living space with plenty of natural flow between the two. This is ideal for homes set back from the street. Many of these designs involve removing the garage door and leaving it completely open, creating a covered patio. Accessorised with plush outdoor furniture, a barbeque, and built-in heaters, and a stylish, contemporary space has been created for year-round entertaining.
Garages are typically built with brick or block walls making window installation more expensive. A cost-effective solution that doubles as a striking design feature is a frosted glass garage door that lets in light without sacrificing privacy. You also retain the option to open the door for a well ventilated space, perfect for a home office or home gym.
