Garage Conversion as a Music Studio - do they work?
Yes, without doubt. If the garage conversion is well designed and built well, then a use
of a garage conversion for a music room or studio is an ideal one. Provided any garage conversion is built to a
high standard then its use can be entirely flexible to meet the needs of each now home owner or can adapt with any
growing families needs.
What may be a requirement for a teenagers music room one year may need to become a dedicated study for the
family or a work room for the ‘work from home’ husband or wife later on.
Obviously there are a number of other factors for a dedicated music room for use as the garage conversion such
as noise absorption and acoustics that can be built in as part of the initial design for the garage conversion by
your house extension designer.
Most of the equipment for a dedicated music room revolve around appliances brought in and simply plugged in
rather than forming inbuilt equipment. Therefore, when the need or requirement ceases for the music room, the
garage conversion can revert to some other defined need for living space such as a guest bedroom or study.
High quality sealed unit airtight double glazing for the new window will be an added advantage to reduce any
noise break out as will forming a blockwork inner skin rather than a lightweight timber stud framing. Incorporating
dense internal access doors into the music room with neoprene air tight seals will again assist any noise breakout
into other parts of the dwelling.
