Garage Conversion Specialist in Oxfordshire

Home office garage conversion

The last few years of tumultuous times have seen more homeowners than ever look to extend and optimise the living space they’re in rather than go through the hassle and expense of relocating. As a result, garage conversions are increasing in popularity – and for those living in Oxfordshire, Refresh Renovations are on-hand to help transform them.

What aspects of a garage conversion do Refresh undertake?

Got a garage conversion in mind? Refresh Oxfordshire’s all-encompassing project management includes:
- Design and plans
- Planning permission applications (where applicable)
- Insulation
- Weatherproofing
- Ventilation
- Sound proofing
- Electricity and water supply.

What are the trends in garage conversions right now?

Garage conversions have increased in demand post-lockdown as more people have had to work from home and many looked for new sources of income. As a result, Refresh Oxfordshire have worked on lots of garage conversions recently to make them into small business spaces (a yoga studio and art workshop), home offices for remote working and extra bedrooms – some even with en-suites to be let out to tenants or as holiday homes. Whatever you have in mind for your garage conversion, Refresh Renovations Oxfordshire will rise to the challenge.

How much does a garage conversion cost?

The cost of a garage conversion entirely depends on the size and scope of the job, but generally speaking, a garage conversion could cost anywhere from £7,500 - £70,000 depending on the size of the space, and the ambitiousness of the project scope. A conversion of an integral garage to a dry room space, Ie. insulating and plaster-boarding with minimal electrics and plumbing will be much more likely to fall on the lower end than converting an underground parking area to a fully fitted out luxury isolated annexe suite.

Why choose Refresh for my garage conversion?

Will I need planning permission for a garage conversion?

There are very few instances in which garage conversions require external administrative permissions as most renovations of this type won’t alter too much of the infrastructure or usage of the property. If it is required for whatever reason, your Refresh Project Manager will oversee the whole process for you and liaise with the relevant authorities to push it through.
