The Advantages Of Loft Conversion1421410
Can you envision the thrill of climbing to your first floor landing, exactly where usually it was straight on into the bathroom, but now there is a staircase up to an additional level? Take those stairs and climb into what was a dark and dusty loft where the Christmas decorations had been kept and somewhere to store your O-level certificates. Now it is a wonderfully vibrant and airy room that you are going to be in a position to use as a spare bedroom, an office, a study or a playroom for the children where they can make as a lot noise as they like with out getting under foot.
All of the above is perfectly feasible if you were to have a loft conversion.
All families require much more space as the children develop older and have their own friends at home or to stay over.
1 option is to move house - not as easy as it sounds in the present financial climate. House costs are static at very best - OK the house you want to buy appears a bargain on paper, but you are going to have to market your house at an equally decreased cost and sit on the market for some time before snagging a potential purchaser.
The other option is to make more space in your current home by having the loft converted. Nearly any house can have its loft converted and, depending upon the size of your house, end up with at least an additional bedroom. Or those with larger houses may finish up with a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, or an office/study with a shower room, or a kids playroom with toilet off. Either way you will be adding to the worth of your home more than the cost of the conversion.
The finances speak for themselves. More than and above the extra price or extra mortgage of buying a much more expensive house, it costs an average of ten,000 to move house. Money lost on estate agents charges, solicitors charges, stamp duty, removal company and so on. For 15,000 you can have a loft conversion that adds more than 15,000 to the value of your property - no lost money and the advantage of much more space in your present home.
