What process is involved when it comes to a garage to home office conversion?

The process begins by us simply understanding what it is you are trying to create and for what purpose. We will then schedule in a time and day to come to the property and measure up the space we have. Of course, you are welcome to ask any questions you have at any point during this process.

With measurements and a clear understanding of what you need, our designers will collaborate to design a space that has everything you need, customising any areas they need too, to make the space perfect for you. Once the design has been agreed, our professionals will work with you to choose the materials, and they will schedule in a day to begin work. You will receive an estimate of how long we expect the work to take, and will continue to communicate with you throughout the entire process so you know that we are working to schedule.

Other home office space conversions

If you do not have a garage, or you do have one but you are using it, then you can convert lots of other areas of your home into a useful, gorgeous home office. Other areas in your home that we can convert into a home office include:

The loft/attic: the loft space in any home is usually big, providing a lot of space for your home office. With the option of installing windows and skylights, they can be quite light and airy, and often have the most spectacular views of the entire home. Which is why the loft, or attic, space, can often make for the most relaxing of home offices.

A spare bedroom: probably the most obvious choice for a home office conversion is the spare room.

Basement: A basement space can work almost as well as an attic space. It is more difficult to install windows for natural lighting, however, there are enough lighting options to make the room bright enough for you to work in. Like the attic, the basement is separated somewhat from the home, giving you the space and peace you need to focus.

Shed: if you have a large shed, this could be turned into a wonderful home office space.
