Garage Conversion Floor Plans - which is the best layout for my own property
Some homeowners are confused by how to incorporate the garage space into the main
dwelling when converting the garage. Unless you already have a set of floor plans or the homeowner is good at 3D
visualising the existing house layout through walls etc., many struggle to see how the garage floor space can be
best assimilated and used as part of the main dwellings living floor space.

You may have already formed a view or aspiration for the converted garage space and the house extension
designers floor plans will either demonstrate how this can be achieved or you will realise that the space is
unsuitable for your intended use.

conversion for the new bedroom can only be achieved off another roof - say a kitchen for example rather than the
common circulation areas. This restricted access garage conversion floor plan reveals that a bedroom space may not
be the best use of space or very desirable for normal living. However, a utility or dining area opened up into the
existing kitchen may provide a much better use of space that appeals to most future homeowners meaning that money
is well spent and has some added value element to the works.

converted garage space if only to stress test your preconceived current ids and aspirations. This is when a good
experienced house extension designer comes into their own and earn their fees.
