Like every property that you see, every garage is unique. Not just the dimensions but also items on the wall such as boilers, metres and pipework as well as the current state of the space, when it was built and the materials used in the creation. Combine that with the myriad of reasons you might want to upgrade your garage and you’ll quickly realise why it is so difficult to provide ballpark figures as to how much your garage transformation might cost.
In this blog post, we’ll take a deeper dive into some of the factors that will affect your quote and the different options available for your bespoke garage design.
Ideas for upgrading your garage
Converting your garage into a functional and enjoyable space can greatly enhance your home’s usability and value. And as everyone has different hobbies, interests and ideas, we wanted to share just some of the ways you could upgrade your garage:
- Games Room
Yoga, Pilates or Meditation Space
Factors that will affect your quote
There are many different factors that will affect the price of your garage transformation quote, here are just a few ideas to consider:
Size of your garage – of course the larger the space you are looking to transform, the more expensive the price for your walls, ceiling and floors. And of course it depends on whether you would like storage or cabinets on every wall or just one or two. We also offer the option to partially panel walls using FlexiPanel for use with a smaller amount of storage accessories.
Garage wall options – we have many different options for your garage walls including FlexiPanel, FlexiSmooth and FlexiTrack, click here to find out more about these options. Covering every wall in FlexiPanel provides complete flexibility when it comes to our storage accessories but, if you choose to have cabinets on one wall, we could panel that wall in our more cost-effective FlexiSmooth wall panel.
Ceiling – many clients choose to have the ceiling panelled in addition to the walls as it brings a sense of cohesion to the design, it also reduces draughts and space for bugs. However, this does add an additional cost to the design.
Lighting – we are able to offer many different lighting options as part of your installation including hexagonal and downlighting. We use our sister company Instaspark for this side of the installation or you are able to use your regular electrician. Our team will be able to liaise with them to incorporate it into the installation schedule.
Mirrors – we work with a very experienced mirror supplier for our installations and can request bespoke sizes to fit your space.
Boxing in pipework – there are often pipes, metres or boilers in the garage and to ensure that you have a streamlined look, we are able to create new cupboards to accommodate them.
Garage Doors – if you are looking for new garage doors, we can include this as part of your installation and have extremely experienced suppliers to assist with this. Please note that new garage doors are a big ticket item and will make a difference to the final cost of your makeover.
Desired flooring option – choosing a Resin Floor is a more expensive option that floor tiles so this is something to be aware of if you are looking to keep costs down. We are proud that all of our flooring is ideal for the garage, it usually comes down to the desired finish and budget.
Sinks and plumbing – we are often asked if we can build a utility area within the garage and this is certainly something that can be done.
Windows and doors – we also get requests to add in a new door or window and again, this is something that we can help with although will contribute to the final cost.
Metal cabinets – a must for any garage, metal storage cabinets provide a safe and secure storage option. Obviously the more you choose to have, the more the final cost is increased.
We hope that this has proved to be useful to understand all the associated costs when transforming your garage. Our garage experts would be delighted to discuss your project and provide a complimentary quote for transforming your space.
