Looking for more space? You do not have to move to a larger house, when you can benefit from it in your current location. All that you have to do is to transform your garage into a more functional room. While it may seem easy to convert a garage into a room, specialists recommend that you address a team of reliable builders Northampton, because only they know building laws, can provide you with useful suggestions on construction materials and design ideas, and are authorised to undertake building projects.
Garage conversions Northampton are cheaper than house extensions. However, just like house extensions, so garage conversions need to respect building regulations. Other things that they should respect, although this is not mandatory, is the style of the house. In other words, if the house features a classic look, the new room transformed from a garage should feature a classic look, as well, not a modern one. For professional advice on how to design a garage conversion, those interested are invited to contact some trustworthy builders Northampton.
The next tip refers to considering all the necessary adjustments or modifications that your builders would have to perform, to allow you to properly use your new space. In case you want to transform the garage into an additional kitchen, you have to discuss with some plumbers, too, to install a sink in your new space. If a living room is desired, electricians would have to be called in to provide you with the installation of more sockets and lighting devices.
The already existing installations do not have to be changed, unless they contradict homeowners’ new preferences. And even if they do, it would be best for homeowners to be flexible and adjust their preferences than changing the location of a socket, for example. If another socket needs to be installed, however, this can be easily done by contacting an electrician. Jobs related to electricity must not be performed by non-professionals, because they can lead to serious problems.
Still, there are jobs that can be performed by homeowners themselves and these can refer to painting the walls of the new room, decorating it or installing window blinds. By doing some of the jobs yourself, you will manage to save on costs and feel much better the emotion of participating in an actual construction project. Moreover, you can involve some of your younger family members in this project, especially when it comes to painting the walls or decorating the new space.
But garage conversions Northampton do not refer only to the interior of the new room, but also to its exterior and the most important transformation represents the replacement of the garage door with a concrete wall and a door or even some windows. Some people decide on keeping their garage door, to reduce their expenses, but this is not a good idea, taking into account that the new room has to give the sensation of an actual room included in the house, not of a garage that is transformed only in its interior into a room.
