You might be in need of extra storage, a home gym, an office or a workshop, for example. So converting your garage can add extra functionality and even value to your home. Many of our customers have undertaken conversion projects for which they’ve had us install suitable garage doors. Throughout southern Scotland, homeowners sure have been busy improving their homes. Here’s some inspiration for you, based on what we’ve seen.

Convert your garage into a home gym. Lay shock-absorbing rubber matting, install mirrors and install equipment such as treadmills, weights, pull-up bars and yoga mats. With a home gym in your converted garage, you’ll be able to work out whenever you want, without leaving home.
