A loft conversion is a popular home addition, and for good reason. By converting your otherwise unused loft, you can reap so many great rewards including increased living space, better energy efficiency, and a wider variety of uses and styles within your home. A loft conversion adds value in the long term too, adding an extra 20% to the value of the average UK property.
With planning permission rarely required for loft conversions, and the conversion process easier and quicker than ever, there’s never been a better time to convert your loft space. But what are the best uses for a loft conversion? As you’ll discover the possibilities are endless!
We’ll start our rundown with the most obvious use and that’s an extra bedroom. Loft conversions can be used to create some incredible spaces, whether you’re looking to add an impressive master suite (complete with bathroom, dressing room and walk-in wardrobe), want bigger rooms for your growing children, or need a spare for when guests or the grandkids come to stay.
With more and more people continuing to work from home post-lockdown, our homes have to serve us better than ever before.
They now have to double as workspaces, and whilst working from your sofa or kitchen table offered a convenient temporary solution, converting your loft to create a home office ensures the peace, quiet and privacy you need to get on with your job, even in the busiest family home.
Having another space to escape to within your home can make family life that bit more enjoyable, which is why converting the loft space into a playroom or games room is particularly popular today. With a bit of creative thinking, a loft conversion can quickly be transformed into a fun den for individuals of all ages, as well as a safe and exciting area for the littler members of the family.
Whatever your hobbies or interests, a converted space is the perfect place to indulge them. A loft conversion can easily be used to add a home gym, chill out space, creative studio, or hobby room to your home so you can look after your body, mind and soul on your terms.
