Can you imagine the thrill of climbing to your first floor landing, where generally it was straight on into the bathroom, but now there is a staircase up to another level? Take these stairs and climb into what was a dark and dusty loft where the Christmas decorations had been kept and someplace to shop 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 kids where they can make as much noise as they like with out obtaining below foot.
All of the above is perfectly feasible if you were to have a loft conversion.
All households need more space as the children develop older and have their personal buddies at home or to remain more than.
1 option is to move house - not as simple as it sounds in the present financial climate. House costs are static at best - OK the house you want to buy looks 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 prior to snagging a potential purchaser.
The other option is to make more space in your current home by getting the loft converted. Almost 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 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 worth of your home more than the cost of the conversion.
The finances speak for themselves. Over and above the extra price or additional mortgage of purchasing a more expensive house, it costs an average of ten,000 to move house. Money lost on estate agents fees, solicitors charges, stamp duty, removal company etc. For 15,000 you can have a loft conversion that adds much more than 15,000 to the value of your property - no lost money and the advantage of much more space in your present home.
