If a loft conversion seems like an awful lot of hard work and effort then think again. It is hard work, but well worth the effort and nowhere near the hassle you may think it is. A loft conversion can have many different advantages and we’re going to look at some of them to help you decide.
Converting your attic or loft can make a tremendous difference to your home, not only improving its value, but giving you some much valued space for family and friends. It can also work out a lot more affordable than buying a new home.
Loft conversion – the advantages
It’s a fraction of the cost you’d think and simply by converting a small area of space in your home you can add to its value and make it an attractive option for students and lodgers – thus giving you an extra income. The value of your house could be increased by at least 40% giving your home a new lease of life.
It isn’t anywhere near as hard to run wiring and plumbing into a new loft as you’d think and a loft is going to be one of the warmest rooms in the house as long as some rooms are heated downstairs.
You could also provide an alternative entrance so that anyone who eventually moves into the loft can have some privacy. Also keep in mind that you can increase daylight into your home and improve the views, giving those occupying the loft the potential for some pretty breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape.
