If you are converting your garage you will no doubt want to create a living space with plenty of light. Our recommendation is to brick up the lower half of the opening and add a large window at the front of the conversion. We match the bricks and windows perfectly to your existing home. Then the window gives plenty of natural light for your new room. The benefits of natural light are numerous. There is much evidence to show that it increases our productivity at work and reduce the risk of seasonal affective disorder. It is also easier on our eyes, creating a healthier environment iff it’s a workspace. Equally, if you convert into a living area or bedroom who wouldn’t want plenty of natural light flowing in. Not only does it make the room look bigger and more airy but it adds significant value on resale. We therefore highly recommend creating a matching window at the front of your garage to achieve all these benefits.
