5 Reasons Why You Should Invest In A Loft Conversion

Over recent years, opting for a loft conversion within your property has rapidly become one of the most desired home renovation choices, often seen as a cost-effectively alternative to completely moving out. For a number of homeowners, the loft is seen as a storage area for anything that needs hoarding, but for others it can be a made into a truly unique space for your family to inhabit. Many people are realising that converted lofts are a solid idea for a number of reasons. Here we go through some of the most important reasons to invest in a loft conversion.

Increasing your living space

Lack of living space remains one of the most pivotal reasons for homeowners moving out to a larger property that meets their updated needs. Although both a conservatory and an extension bring the advantage of added living space to the home, they will normally take a lot more planning and time than standard loft conversions. With loft conversions you can increase your living space without having to worry about the time and planning required by other expansion efforts.

Adding value to your home

A loft conversion not only rewards you with plenty of extra features in the present day, but can also do so in the future if you ever decide to sell your property. It is believed that a loft conversion can add as much as 20% extra onto the value of your property. Buyers will be looking out for features that make a property stand out on the market.

Rooms with a view

If you live in a busy town or city, the only views that you tend to enjoy from your windows are filled with offices, roads,  and housing estates, which can be unappealing. Many houses lack proper views, which is why a loft conversion can come as a pleasant surprise for those who are considering a renovation. Since loft conversions use large windows that are often located in the roof, it is ideal for stargazing as well on clear evenings!

Efficiency with energy

Many people are also surprised at the range of energy efficiency benefits that can come from a loft conversion. Since loft conversions tend to be filled with large windows, it means that they use natural lighting for the majority of the day. Most of the other rooms in your home are likely to be blocked by a number of other properties, the street outside or even trees, which can mean that on gloomier days, artificial lighting is required all of the day. However, loft conversions can be lit by natural lighting throughout the day, and all year round!

Creating a multiple-use room

Once your loft conversion has been completed, there are no limits to how you want to make use of the newly renovated living space. The most common use of a loft conversion tends to be an extra bedroom, that can also have the addition of an ensuite, but this doesn’t necessarily have to be your only option.

For growing families, it can be a popular choice to transform your loft into a playroom filled with comfy bean bags, toys, and games consoles, or even snooker tables! Filling your room with different types of storage areas means that you can keep the rest of the home clutter-free too!
