March 8, 2013 - PRLog -- According to the BBC 53% of households in the UK have access to a garage but only 24% use them for parking cars.

The truth is, most of us couldn’t fit our cars into our garages even if we wanted to. This is because they are stacked full of bikes, tools, lawnmowers and miscellaneous junk. We all have heaps of extra ‘stuff’ that accumulates in our lives, and this usually ends up either in the loft or the garage. It’s a worldwide epidemic and shows no signs of slowing down.

If you’re parking your car on your road and not even using your garage, it probably means you don’t mind not parking your car in your garage. It stands to reason then that if you wouldn’t necessarily use your garage for your car and it’s stacked high with miscellaneous objects, that the ground space taken up by your garage could be put to much better use as something else.

Perhaps you’re thinking of putting a pool table in there or using it as a practice space for your covers band. Sure, it’s more than equipped to deal with either of those activities once you’ve cleared out some space. However, many homeowners look at garages from the perspective of them simply being dead space without realising the potential value the conversion of that space could bring to their property and to their lives.

To Convert or not to Convert

Yes, a garage conversion costs more than a simple clear-out, but more often than not they are a worthwhile investment. The Independent listed garage conversions as one of the top ways that you could add value to your home, and just think of the extra space you could find use for. For garage conversions, planning permission is not usually required, provided that the work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building. The government are actively encouraging garage and loft conversions so that homeowners can stay in their homes and increase the value of their homes in this economic downturn. While an average garage conversion costs between £5,000-£10,000 the value it could add to your house price could dramatically outweigh this figure and also stop you from moving in a bad economic climate.
