Once the domain of the family car, most garages these days are dumping grounds for household clutter, sports equipment, pet paraphernalia, or extra fridges and freezers. But the space that a garage offers can be better utilised if converted well.
At Refresh, our local Renovation Consultants in Sydney’s Northern Beaches can work with you on your garage conversion project to transform the space into a useful - and potentially income-earning - room of the house. Get in touch with the team today.
Is your family home bursting at the seams? Do you need extra room for teenagers to be teenagers? Are you looking to generate income on the side with an Airbnb offering? The answer could be in your garage.
At Refresh, we have undertaken many garage conversions for reasons similar to the above. And we have done them all using our 5-step process. It’s our way of ensuring your renovation project is stress-free, enjoyable, easy, and successful. Here’s how it works.
Every renovation starts with a free, no-obligation consultation with one of your local Renovation Consultants. It’s an opportunity for ideas to be discussed and decisions to be made as to whether you want to proceed with turning your vision into reality.
The next steps include the drawing up of designs and the preparation of a fixed quote to ensure there are no surprises at any stage of your renovation. Once all the planning is signed off, construction can begin. This is the stage at which your local Renovation Consultant will call in their network of trusted professionals to get the job done.
Throughout it all, your Renovation Consultant remains your single point of contact, keeping you informed of progress. The result is a renovation experience you can enjoy - both throughout the journey and at the end.
Garage space often lends itself to being used as a rumpus room, games room, or teenage hangout and this use of the space continues to be a popular reason for garage conversions in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. With insulation added to walls, carpets laid, wiring added for the all important powerpoints for wifi connections and playstation consoles, and lighting, a formerly cold, overstacked garage is transformed into an inviting rumpus room for hours of enjoyment.
Another garage conversion idea that is popular in Sydney’s Northern Beaches is the creation of a self-contained unit. Whether for family and friends to stay, or Airbnb guests to book, a garage turned guest suite becomes an ideal space for extra income.
There’s also the possibility of your garage conversion taking the form of a home office, man cave, or workout space. Get in touch with your local Renovation Consultant in Sydney’s Northern Beaches for more ideas.

Given the range of options you have for a garage conversion in Sydney’s Northern Beaches, the cost of embarking on your project can be big or small. It all depends on what you want to achieve.
Previous garage conversions have included a $27,000 project which turned a garage into a guest room, complete with a sliding barn door, warm feature lights, a soft neutral colour palette, and a contemporary rustic interior.
In Melbourne, an existing double garage was converted into a self-contained unit with one bedroom, ensuite, and an open-plan kitchen/living area for $67,000. A black and white retro theme set the scene for this space which exceeded the homeowner’s expectations.
Meanwhile another creative homeowner converted their garage into a high-end film studio.
