With vast experience in space creation, building garage office conversions, garage utility rooms and a wide range of other living spaces, we can help you get the most from your project in Walton-on-Thames or the surrounding areas.
Here are our top tips for designing your conversion:
Try and think of the most efficient layout and how you can maximise space. This is especially important for smaller rooms. The team at Croft Garage Conversions Ltd is on hand to provide expert advice, drawing on more than 30 years of experience in space creation.
To determine an effective layout, it’s important to know how you will use the room. Imagine how you will use it to picture where certain things should go.
Explore different interior design styles and choose an overall theme for the space. This makes it easier to choose décor and ensures a cohesive design. For example, minimalist and natural themes work well for garage office conversions in Walton-on-Thames. Mundane garage utility rooms can be made beautiful with anything from a bohemian to a rustic theme.
The following are some style points our garage conversion company advises customers to think about when planning garage and outbuilding conversions:
You might find it useful to create a vision board to bring your ideas together.
Lighting plays a crucial role in determining the mood of a room. It also affects the functionality of a space. As such, it’s important to have the right lighting for the atmosphere you want to create and to suit how you use the room.
Maximising natural light is a popular aspect of space creation, making a room easier to use during the day by reducing the need for artificial light. It can also help improve wellbeing. Consequently, our garage conversion company recommends large windows and rooflights for conversions that will be used a lot during the day, such as garage office conversions.
Other lighting options for garage and outbuilding conversions in Walton-on-Thames include:
It is generally best to combine different types of lighting. For example, garage utility rooms need a main light to easily use the space. However, task lighting can enhance daily use, such as an adjustable lamp at an ironing station.
