Can you imagine the thrill of climbing to your first floor landing, exactly where generally it was straight on into the bathroom, but now there is a staircase up to another level? Take those 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 vibrant and airy room that you are going to be in a position to use as a spare bedroom, an workplace, a study or a playroom for the children where they can make as a lot noise as they like without getting under foot.
All of the above is perfectly possible if you were to have a loft conversion.
All families require more space as the kids grow older and have their personal buddies at home or to remain over.
1 option is to move house - not as easy as it sounds in the present financial climate. House prices 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 prior to snagging a potential purchaser.
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, end up with at least an extra bedroom. Or those with bigger houses might end up with a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, or an office/study with a shower room, or a children 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 additional price or extra mortgage of purchasing a more expensive house, it costs an typical of ten,000 to move house. Money lost on estate agents charges, solicitors fees, stamp duty, removal company and so on. 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 benefit of more space in your present home.
Sounds fascinating? To make sure a smooth loft conversion just make sure that you choose a professional loft conversion company that can deal with the whole conversion project from drawing up the first plans (in 3D - very cool) to applying for the necessary permissions and building regulations, to carrying out the conversion and finishing it to your decorative requirements.
