Move or Improve?

Increase your living space and add value to your home

Decorum Projects, established in 1938, operate throughout the East Midlands and you will frequently find us converting garages in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire.  With space at a premium, home owners are increasingly turning to their garages as a means of extending and improving their current property.

Converting your garage into a space which can be used to gain extra living accommodation and enhance the value of your home can transform your property and lifestyle.  Garages, traditionally designed for storing cars, usually end up as dusty dumping grounds.  A garage conversion is one of the speediest and most affordable routes to adding floor space and over the years we have seen most types of garage conversion, typically:

Bigger Kitchen

No space for your dream kitchen within the footprint of your house? Your garage could be the heart of the home with the bespoke, fitted kitchen you’ve always wanted.

Home Cinema

Enjoy film nights and VR game nights with your nearest and dearest in your own private home cinema room.  Your garage could be the answer to your home cinema utopia.

Home Office

Imagine a trip to the garage rather than a trip down the M25. Your garage has the ideal solution! Move or expand your business from the poky back bedroom into your swanky new home office.


A garage can be turned into a fully self-sufficient annex for elderly relatives or teenagers yet to fly the nest.  Add value to your home whilst making sure loved ones are well cared for!

Home Gym

Not everyone needs a private gym in their home, but it definitely beats queuing for training equipment, the commute and the monthly fees of your local gym!  Add value to your home and change the way you work out with your very own home gym in your garage.

Utility Room

Struggling for space in your kitchen to dry the washing, towel down the wet dog, hang muddy coats? Make your life easier with a utility room garage conversion.

Part Conversion

If you are lucky enough to have a double garage, you might want to consider a ‘part conversion’.  Typically, the front or rear of the garage is retained for DIY use, storing your tools, lawnmower, bicycles etc.  The rest of the garage can be converted to a room to suit your needs as listed above.

Garage conversion fully compliant to building regulations

A garage conversion by Decorum Projects is guaranteed to be fully compliant with all building regulations.  We offer the full turnkey solution, managing your project from design through to completion without the need for you to deal with the co-ordination of any subcontractors.  Customers can also be reassured that all electrics are certified by NICEIC approved installers.
