Our favourite garage conversion ideas

A garage conversion is a brilliant way to add extra living space without actually having to build an extension. As you are not actually extending, it's normally a cheaper way to gain living space whilst the work will have minimal disruption to your home.

We have picked out some amazing garage conversions to give you some ideas of how to make use of your garage!


A perfectly organised playroom


If you have small children, it's a great idea to turn your garage into a playroom to keep all of the toys in one place. How amazing is this playroom from my_persimmon_home on Instagram?! We love how they have managed to incorporate a lovely light colour scheme and add some colour for the children too!

A luxurious media room

We love this garage conversion by stjohnshome on Instagram. It's such a fantastic idea to turn an old garage into a media room where you can relax and watch a film (or even the England game!). We also love the decor which makes the whole space feel luxurious.

A space for family and friends

If you have a lot of family and friends visiting, a good use of an empty garage is to turn it into a guest annex where they can have their own bathroom too. Marraum architects have taken this garage and converted it into a wonderful space, which looks so inviting and gives your guests some privacy and space when they are visiting.

A spacious kitchen

If you desperately need a larger kitchen, it's worthwhile considering converting your garage to give you the additional space that you need. TheMalory on Instagram have created this spacious kitchen by knocking through from their existing small kitchen to their garage. 

We also love the colour of the units and the matching brass handles to give a modern twist to this traditional shaker kitchen.

A practical utility room

If you still need part of your garage to use as storage, it's a great idea to convert part of it into a practical utility space. We love this utility room by Granit architects - it's so streamlined and tidy and will help you become super organised too. 

A utility room is a great way to keep all of the mess out of the rest of your home. If your utility is in the garage then the noise of the washing machine will be far away from the main living space - perfect if your home is open plan!
