5 Reasons for Choosing a Loft Conversion

Loft Conversion Stairs & Landing

Most people leave their loft in a dusty, dirty state. They use it to pack away old toys, clothes, and other things the family forgot about years ago. Once in a while, someone might go up there for some reason. Otherwise, it’s the room no one really cares about…until now. Here are five reasons why you should get a loft conversion.

A loft conversion makes money

A good conversion by professionals won’t come cheap. Securing the structure, decorating, and fitting the room will take a lot of money. However, the finished product will make money! You could rent out the room to lodgers. A renovated loft will generate a high income each month, paying for itself within a few years. After that, all profit!

Loft conversions cut your bills

When builders work on the structure, make sure they fit insulation. Good insulation keeps the heat inside so your gas or electricity bills will be lower. With the rising cost of energy, good insulation is a MUST. Don’t boost energy companies’ profits anymore! A good energy provider offers free energy saving tools like insulation, so make sure you take advantage. Not only will this cut your bills but also cut the cost of your loft conversion.

Loft conversions increase house prices

Loft Conversion in ProgressRedecorating your home increases its value, but anyone can decorate. A house extension, basement or loft conversion boosts value even more. Instead of new wallpaper or carpets, you’ve given buyers a new room! This makes you stand out in the housing market. You must go the extra mile to get a premium on the sale price!

A loft conversion makes space

Sometimes decluttering or tidying just isn’t enough. Storage costs add up to thousands over time. Selling possessions takes a long time. Why give away your things unless you have to? Converting the loft gives you much more space. Now you get to keep your possessions close to home at no cost with easy access.

A loft conversion is the perfect getaway

Attics are great places to de-stress. It’s quiet because it’s further from the road, neighbours, and the rest of the house. The whole family can use this retreat, or it could be a playroom for the kids – now you don’t have to worry about them going to the park. It could be a gym for fitness fanatics. No more expensive gym fees. It could be a den for relaxation. Unwind in the comfort of your own home. Make sure your designer produces a retreat that easily converts to suit most purposes.

Those are five great reasons why you should get a loft conversion. It won’t be cheap and it won’t be easy if you do-it-yourself, but it will be worth it in the end. With extra money, lower bills, more space, and the perfect getaway for all the family, renovating the loft is the ultimate investment.
