The Benefits Of Loft Conversion4571352
Can you imagine 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 these stairs and climb into what was a dark and dusty loft where the Christmas decorations were kept and somewhere to store your O-level certificates. Now it is a wonderfully bright 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 kids exactly where they can make as much noise as they like without obtaining under foot.
All of the above is perfectly feasible if you were to have a loft conversion.
All families need much more space as the children grow older and have their own buddies at home or to stay over.
1 option is to move house - not as simple as it sounds in the present economic climate. House costs are static at 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 reduced cost and sit on the market for some time before snagging a possible buyer.
The other option is to make more space in your present home by having the loft converted. Almost any house can have its loft converted and, based upon the size of your house, finish up with at least an extra bedroom. Or those with bigger houses might 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 value of your home more than the cost of the conversion.
The finances speak for themselves. Over and above the additional price or extra mortgage of buying a much more costly house, it costs an average of 10,000 to move house. Money lost on estate agents fees, 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 worth of your property - no lost money and the benefit of much more space in your current home.
