If you need more room in your home, you may well have weighed up the available options and decided that it’s not the time to move and, instead, you will stay and improve your current property. This makes a lot of sense; moving house is costly, time-consuming and stressful, so why not stay and make the best use that you can of your existing property?
One of the main reasons for moving home is to gain additional space. Your home might be feeling over-crowded, with nowhere for the children to play and growing children needing their own bedroom rather than sharing. You may require a dedicated quiet area for you to work from home rather than trying to do so from the kitchen table, or you might simply need space to accommodate guests. A loft conversion is a fantastic way to add this much needed extra space to your home, helping it to work for your family.
Why are loft conversions so popular?
Loft conversions are a particularly popular solution for homeowners needing extra space because they are usually much more cost-effective than side or rear extensions. This is because, with a loft extension, you are using the existing structure as the basis of the extension rather than having to build from scratch, helping to keep the costs down. Obviously a loft conversion will not work for all needs. Clearly, it would not be ideal to put a kitchen in the loft, for example, but they work very well for extra bedroom, work and studio space.
What can I use a loft extension for?
Loft extensions can be used for any number of purposes but the most popular reasons for converting a loft are to use it as an extra bedroom, playroom, master bedroom, guest suite or home office. With home working likely to be here to stay for so many of us, a self-contained home office away from the rest of the family is an attractive proposition to provide a comfortable, practical and professional working environment free of the clutter of family life.
With a separate home office, you can keep work matters away from family areas, helping you to draw a distinction between work and home. Most loft conversions can include a toilet or bathroom if required, helping to create a self-contained area within your home.
