There are a number of great benefits to adding a loft conversion to your property. Alot of people just look at the one option of having the extra space, but tend not to think of the other good reasons.
Increase in property value Loft conversions can work out very expensive, but adding the extra room can add serious value to your home. Prices can vary, but can start from around £20,000 and add an increase of 20% on top of the original selling price. But bare in mind, the more you spend on your conversion the more value you could add. For property developers this is usually one of the first things they will consider on a property as it is guaranteed investment.
Space Adding extra space to your existing home is a perfect idea! If you’ve already done it, you know that moving home can be stressful and just one big headache. Add children in the mix and it’s a bigger nuisance. Gaining valuable space in your current home can save you alot of time and money. And honestly, who doesn’t want more space to expand.
Storage Space Maybe not the best or most exciting reason for a loft conversion, but definitely a great reason! If we’re honest, the majority of us just use our loft space to store decorations and memories we no longer have space for in the house. By designing a storage solution that’s of use to you, it could be alot easier to access and arrange the mess you have up there.
Being Creative By converting your loft it gives you a reason to let your imagination run wild! Fancy a home cinema? A little den for the kids? A room to just escape? It’s completely yours to decorate and organise however you want.
Energy Efficient Most properties, (more so old), have very poor insulation. The worst of the energy loss always seems to come from the loft, and this is one of the main reasons people even go up there! Whilst you’re up there insulating it, you may as well convert your home and increase the value of your home.
