Can you imagine the thrill of climbing to your first floor landing, where usually 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 bright and airy room that you are going to be able 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 without getting under foot. All of the above is perfectly possible if you were to have a loft conversion.
All families need more space as the kids grow older and have their own friends at home or to stay over. One option is to move house – not as simple as it sounds in the present economic climate. House prices 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 price and sit on the market for some time before snagging a potential buyer.
The other option is to make more space in your current home by having the loft converted with sussexandsouthcoast.co.uk. 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 end 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 extra cost or additional mortgage of buying a more expensive house, it costs an average of 10,000 to move house. Money lost on estate agents fees, solicitors fees, stamp duty, removal company etc. 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 benefit of more space in your current home.
Sounds interesting? To ensure a smooth loft conversion just make sure that you choose a professional loft conversion company that can handle 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 standards.
