There are many reasons why converting your loft is a great idea and whatever you decide to do Loftplan will help you do it. To give you a little insight into exactly how we conduct our work, here are just a few of the many reasons that make a loft conversion worth your while.
1: Increased home value
Converting your loft to a good usable space has been shown to increase the value of many houses by up to 20%, with some research showing an increased value of up to 40% for some townhouses. Furthermore loft conversions are cheaper than extensions, as there is no creation of brand new space the cost is often much less.
2: No planning permission hassle
Most loft conversions are exempt from that pesky town planning. This means they can be quick and easy to do, However if you plan to change the exterior of the house you may need some planning permission first. On the whole though they are quick and as a bonus you can avoid any of the typical problems associated with ground floor renovation such as damp soil and having to temporarily leave you home.
3: More daylight & Better views!
Loft conversions allow you to explore a new view from your house. Typically windows are not blocked by trees or other houses at loft height which makes for a great view of your neighbourhood but also ensures the room has a vast amount of daylight that other rooms might perhaps miss out on. This can make a loft the ideal place to get away from the artificial light and enjoy some natural sunlight and fresh air while having a great view at the same time.
4: Endless uses
Loft conversions create a room that can be tailored to your specific personal or family needs. Some great ideas include a family room to enjoy some downtime with the kids in a relaxed and comfortable environment, Guest bedrooms can make for a safe bet especially if you have friends and family over often. Or perhaps an extra room for you to have a private place to curl up with a book and enjoy the view. Many lofts also make great master bathrooms as the increased light gives the room a relaxed feeling. The great thing about a loft conversion is that almost any extra room you might fancy in your house can be created in the loft.
