Garage Conversion for a Home Cinema
Garage conversions make ideal rooms for a home cinema installation. Even the conversion
of a single garage space will have ideal proportions for using the converted space as a dedicated home cinema room.
A garage conversion for use as a home cinema will require a compliant and council approved conversion to a high
standard as the use of the space will be defined as a habitable room.
A garage conversion for use as a home cinema is no more than a standard conversion for a habitable room but
having electrical components for quality viewing and sound for home movies onto a dedicated large screen. These
home cinemas can usually be converted back to any other use of space (bedroom, study, dining room etc) simply by
removing the electrical installations.
Many home cinema installations are designed and installed in such a way that they are very unobtrusive and do
not need to be removed for the garage conversion to be used as a very flexible and alternative use of space. Roller
screens with a ceiling mounted projector is an ideal solution for a subtle home cinema installation within a garage
Some homeowners like the home cinema to be an obvious ‘in your face’ type of installation making a feature of
the units especially if the are of a designer or high quality make. This can cause a ‘cluttered’ feel for the
garage conversion and lose the sense of space that the room could have.
My advise for any garage conversion incorporating a home cinema installation should be very minimal with great
effort placed on hiding the equipment within the building fabric so hat the space can be used for an occasional
bedroom for example when guests come to stay.
