In the UK, more and more people are choosing to take care of their older relatives at home. That’s not surprising when you consider the benefits. Instead of the stress of travelling between properties or concerns about loneliness, moving your relatives into your home provides much more peace of mind.
Understandably though, many people worry about how to find room for their mum or dad as they get older. After all, research shows that 1 in 20 homes in the UK are overcrowded. Fortunately, it’s easier and more cost effective than you might think to adapt your home to create a living space for your loved one. Plus, it doesn’t have to involve the time and expense of building an extension onto your home. As a Derby Trusted Trader, we offer everything you might need to transform an unused garage into a comfortable, independent living space.
Converting your garage can be better than just making space in the main part of your property. While you get the reassurance of providing support for your relative, they get to keep their independence. There’s even the option of adding a separate front door. With more than 20 years expertise, we offer everything needed to transform your empty garage into a cosy, welcoming space.
By converting your garage, we can help you create a space on the groundfloor so it’s suitable for people with limited mobility. You could add a wet room or a kitchen area. Or by adding a conservatory to the back or side you could make a separate sitting area. Tell us what you want and we’ll apply for all the necessary building regulations from the council and manage everything from the plumbing, to the flooring and the electrics. It won’t be long before your elderly relative is enjoying their new home and you’re happy they’re close by.
If you’d like to talk to us about converting your garage, call into our showroom on London Road or call us on (01332) 755551.
