We find many of our customers looking for the best new patio doors Cheshire has to offer are embarking on an exciting home makeover project – usually one that sees more living space added to their family home.
That’s why it’s no surprise to us the Sainsbury Bank have turned up figures that show that around 3.9 million British residents have converted a garage space in the last two decades that used to house their car into a brand new room to enjoy. What’s a little off-road parking for a whole extra room anyway!
Of course, converting a garage is no simple case of just laying a floor down – to be a real room you need to be rid of those old garage doors for something that lets the light flood in. Given the ground floor nature and the usual proportions of a garage, patio and bi-fold doors are an excellent choice – creating a lovely open feel to the room.
And that’s exactly what you want for your all new space – whatever its use. Sainsburys Bank found that the most common conversion was into a workshop or office with 46 per cent transforming their garage into an inspiring work environment, while a smaller amount decided to create new bedrooms, playrooms or kitchen/living room extensions.
If you do decide to change the structure somewhat, PVC doors and windows can be a great addition more a clean modern look that allows lots of light into the space, but with a bit more privacy. They’ll also help keep it nice and cosy in there, thanks to their insulation and advanced glass technology.
