What Are the Benefits of Converting Your Garage?
There are a variety of reasons to convert a garage in Aberdeen, ranging from the need for more space to accommodate your growing family to the development of your dream kitchen or the need to have a private space. Every homeowner has a different reason for evicting the garden tools and trash that accumulate in the garage. According to the RAC, 9% of family cars were kept overnight in a garage in 2018. As a result, the vast majority of homeowners do not use their garage for the original purpose. Furthermore, a garage conversion may raise the value of your home by up to 20%. Before beginning on home remodelling improvements as an investment, it is essential to study current ceiling prices for comparable properties in your neighbourhood.
Within reason, a garage conversion can be used for a variety of purposes. The following are some of our favourite garage conversion ideas:
Create an open-plan living space.
Combine your kitchen, living room, and dining room to create a lovely, inviting space that will add movement to your home, enhance natural light, and link you to the garden. Popular among homeowners, open plan living is an ideal way to create an indoor-outdoor atmosphere that brings you closer to your surroundings.
This sort of room may be created by tearing down walls and reorganising your basement space as needed, then combining it with floor to ceiling windows and bi-folding doors to create a magnificent space that welcomes the outside in.
Make spaces for your interests and passions.
If you have a passion for anything, creating a zone dedicated to it may be a dream come true. Converting your garage space may be the best option for you if you want a room for your train set, a man cave, a reading room, a yoga room, a gym, or a workshop for your favourite art or craft. The following are some of the advantages of converting your garage into a hobby room:
Any equipment you’ll need for your activity will be kept out of the way of more communal/family spaces.
You have your own private retreat. You won’t have to perform any big construction work, such as removing walls, because the space your garage provides may be precisely what you need.
Working from home
If you need a place to work from home, a studio, or a workshop, your garage may be the perfect fit. You may be possible to create a self-contained chamber with its own entrance depending on the layout of your garage. If you need to entertain customers or work-related guests at your house but want to keep work and home apart, this is a good option.
Playroom for kids
If your family is growing, making use of the space in your garage to create a children’s playroom might be a big help. Anyone who is a parent knows how quickly toys multiply, so having a place where you can lock the door on the clutter and noise may be a lifesaver. When children become older, their playroom may also be used to finish homework and socialise with their peers.
A two-story garage was converted.
Consider a double-story garage conversion if you really want to go all out. This allows you to create the space you need on the main level while also adding a bedroom or bathroom upstairs, or both if space allows. Although double-story garage conversions take longer to construct, are more likely to require planning clearance, and are more expensive than single-storey garage conversions, the extra space may have a major influence on your daily life.
Luke Lloyd Builders specialises in garage conversions and will advise you on the best option for your needs.

Most Popular Questions
Garage conversion prices can only be correctly determined after a site visit and survey, as well as a firm quotation. Each client’s demands, budget, actual garage layout, and venue are special, posing unique obstacles
This is dependent on a variety of factors; however, we can Still consult with the local council’s planning department and the criteria varies depending on the extent of your project, the council area you live in, and also your particular street/estate/district. If you need to get approval, our architect (or your own) can walk you through the process and assist you.
The time it takes to create a garage conversion (excluding design and planning periods) varies depending on the scope of the work involved with your specific project, for example, a single garage converted into a single space can take 2-3 weeks, while a more complicated double garage converted into a flat can take 4-6 weeks. When we give you a quote, we’ll give you a general timeline and scheduling for your project.
What Modifications Do I Need To Do?
Doors and windows
Consider the following:
- To meet the construction rules, all new windows must be double glazed and energy-efficient.
- It’s important to think about ventilation. A higher amount of ventilation, such as a fan and a window, is required in rooms where steam will be created.
- It’s likely that you’ll rebuild the foundations, lay bricks, and install a new window where the original garage door was. If you want the room to fit in smoothly, make sure the new windows and brickwork match the rest of your house.
- Ensure that your new windows and doors are fire-safe, including having adequate escape routes in the case of a fire.
The roof has been replaced.
It’s possible that your original garage roof is watertight and suitable for its purpose, but if it isn’t, you’ll need to make improvements. This might be a good opportunity to modify the construction to match the rest of the house, such as switching from a flat to a pitched roof.
Damp protection and insulation
To fulfil building regulations, all walls, floors, windows, and roofs must be insulated, as well as the walls and floors damp-proofed. As a minimum requirement, insulation must fulfil U-values established by building regulations. However, they vary across the UK, so check with your local authorities.
It is preferable to invest in the finest available insulation than to achieve the minimal requirements, especially if space will be utilised as a bedroom or living room.
Plumbing and electricity
This is an excellent opportunity to bring your electricity up to code to match the rest of your house. At this step, make sure you carefully evaluate the location of electrical outlets and lights.
If you’re adding a shower room or a toilet to your new area, you’ll need to figure out where the current water and waste outflows are, since this will impact how easy the conversion will be.
Consider if your existing boiler can be utilised to heat the extra room, or whether underfloor or electric heating is a better option.
Who will assist me in converting my garage?
Depending on the scope and complexity of your project, you may require a variety of professionals.
A structural engineer will be in charge of creating the structural drawings and calculations needed to meet building codes. Because most garage conversions are uncomplicated and most homeowners have a clear brief and won’t need planning approval, a structural engineer rather than an architect is likely all you’ll need.
Technologist in architecture
If you have a clear brief and require assistance getting planning approval, an architectural technologist (CIAT) is a fantastic alternative. A qualified architect (ARB) is unlikely to be required because they are professionals in the design process and most garage conversions do not necessitate design inspiration.
If you’re doing a garage conversion in a run-down or historic home, it’s a good idea to hire a surveyor from the start to uncover any difficulties you would otherwise ignore.
You will need to hire a builder unless you are an expert yourself. You may either hire a general contractor who can handle everything and hire experts (such as plumbers and electricians), or you may hire individuals and oversee the job yourself.
Be aware that project managing different craftsmen who have never worked together before might be difficult.

Aberdeen is a port city in northeast Scotland, at the confluence of the Dee and Don rivers. The city has an international population due to its offshore petroleum sector. It’s also known as the “Granite City” because of its many long-lasting grey-stone structures. The Marischal College, a 19th-century Victorian landmark that currently serves as the City Council’s offices, is typical.
