Garage and Cellar Conversions
Richmond Refurbishments has extensive experience in garage conversions and cellar conversions in and around Richmond and Kew. We have created extra living space and helped add value to countless clients homes and commercial premises.
Our dedicated team can transform a cold and under-used garage into a warm and habitable room that can offer many uses. Many people choose to turn their garage space into a family room, extra bedroom (with or without en-suite), playroom, study, home office, dining room, home gym… whatever best suits your lifestyle requirements.
While a standard single garage (approximately 150 sq ft) may be too small for some cars, as a garage conversion it adds a lot of additional living space inside your home.
If you have a double garage you may prefer to opt for a 'part conversion' – keeping the front or rear of the garage for storage and converting the rest into a useable room.
We can convert most types of garages, in part or in their entirety:
- Single Garage
- Double Garage
- Tandem Garage
- Integral Garage
- Detached Garage
Under new regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 the permitted development regime covering garage conversions changed and planning permission is not usually required, providing work is internal and does not involve enlarging the building.
Sometimes permitted development rights have been removed from some properties with regard to garage conversions and therefore you should contact your local planning authority before proceeding. Richmond Refurbishments will be pleased to advise you accordingly, whilst ensuring your garage conversion meets all appropriate health and safety guidelines.
Cellar conversions are an equally effective way to enjoy more living space and to add value to your property.
Using only the highest quality materials and products, our specialist cellar conversions team will manage the whole project, from discussing your initial ideas through to completion.
Our cellar conversion services encompass all lighting, plumbing, electrical work and damp proofing.
Richmond Refurbishments is renowned for providing an end-to-end cellar conversion service from initial survey to design, and handling all planning permission, structural engineering services and building regulations.
What could a cellar conversion be used for?
Waterproofed cellars and basements are ideal for conversion into kitchens, bathrooms, wine cellars, living rooms, home offices, or even recording studios. In commercial premises, they are popular as bars, clubs, restaurants and gyms.
Richmond Refurbishments boasts its own in-house trade people – capable hands for all groundworks, underpinning, new basement formations, tanking, plastering, joinery, electrics and plumbing.
