Garage conversion Derby
The UK is a great place to live, and it's no surprise that many people are looking for ways to make their homes more comfortable. One of the best ways of doing this is by installing a home conversion in your garage. This can be done with or without planning permission, but if you want to avoid any hassle at all then getting it granted first is a must. In the following information we will take a look at what you need to do before starting work on your garage conversion project.
There are many reasons why people choose this type of conversion, but the most popular reason is that they simply want more living or work space in their homes. It might seem like there's not much point to converting an area if it's just going to be used for storage and other items, but it can actually be a great way to make the most of your space.
Garage conversion cost
Have you been looking into converting your garage space? But what will this cost?
There are many factors that go into the price of a garage conversion, and sometimes it can be hard to figure out what would be the best deal and what is going on. The overall size of your garage will always be the biggest price factor. For example a single garage conversion could work out anything from £7,000 to £20,000 and a double garage conversion project, all depending if it’s attached, integral or detached, can cost in the region of £15,000 to £55,000. Other considerations to take into account are complexity of the conversion, structural changes that need attending to, your material choices and fixtures and fittings. If your requirements are for an office, bedroom or workshop garage conversion then obviously this will work out far less expensive than a full kitchen conversion or luxury bathroom fitted. Give us a call at Derby House Extensions and we can work with you to produce a garage conversion tailored to your exact needs.
Garage conversion ideas

The office conversion offers all you need for work including desks, computers and bookshelves but it also leaves plenty of room for other activities such as a workout area or home gym.
Garage conversion into a dedicated children's playroom
When your kids have taken over the house with their toys and games, what better way to give them their own space than with a garage conversion? You can keep all of their things in one place while giving them an out-of-the-way area where they are able to play without bothering you.
Garage conversion into a cinema room
A cinema room is the perfect way to have a home entertainment centre without having to go out. Converting your garage means you get space for what will be an awesome, comfy private theatre that can also double as a games room if you like playing board games or ping pong!
Garage conversion to extra bedroom
You may think a garage is just for parking your car, but you can actually transform it into an extra bedroom. This will require careful planning so the space flows well with what's already there. The foundation of the house needs to be assessed if you're filling in all that empty space left by removing or adding new windows and doors--in most cases it will require new foundations and multiple upgrading of present materials
Bathroom garage conversion
Adding an extra bathroom to your home is a great way of improving the quality of life for you and all those who come in contact with it. It can be especially beneficial if there are people coming over often, or kids that need help using the potty! Having one downstairs WC has many benefits like giving guests their own space while also ensuring privacy for yourself. Plus, children will have convenient access when they start going up stairs which means less accidents throughout your house! Turn unused garage into modern luxury family bathroom to make sure everyone gets what they want without hurting anyone's well-being.
Do i need planning permission for a garage conversion
Most garage integral garage conversions will not need planning permission. As long as you are not enlarging the external structure, and use materials that are similar to the existing property, also any of the building work that you will be completing is all internal. If your garage is detached you may need planning as you are changing the structure into a living space. Exceptions also include conservation areas, new developments that may have covenants attached or listed buildings. Always check beforehand with your local authorities.
What is permitted development?
Permitted development is a government run scheme, which was created so that it allows homeowners to extend or renovate their property without the actual need to go down the route of full planning applications This will mean no more long waits for the approval from local council officials in the planning department, who often have lots of other projects to deal with and a backlog which can take ages before receiving a reply about what”s possible with your house extension, garage conversion or potential proposed building work.
As a homeowner, you're responsible for your home and any related building work. But there are regulations that need to be followed when it comes to constructing or renovating anything on the property. The Building Regulations ensure buildings will be accessible to everyone and safe for use as well as conserving fuel usage by ensuring minimum standards in terms of how much heating energy is required so we don't have an environmental disaster waiting around every corner! In addition, if minor changes happen at all within our homes like with installing new kitchen appliances then such small jobs may require consent from these protective laws too - which can get complicated but just contact us if you want help understanding those intricacies better.
