Loft Conversion In Croydon Windows - The perfect time to convert your loft

If you want to make some changes to your home, you might have considered the idea of having a loft conversion. Loft conversions are a popular home renovation choice among those who want to add more value to their home or simply create an extra room for storage, using it as a bedroom, home office, or a second bathroomIf you’re thinking of getting a loft conversion, you may have wondered when the perfect time to convert your loft is. For most people, the spring and summer months are an obvious choice for having any major renovation work such as a loft conversion done on the home. This is because of the nicer weather, and the lower risk of rain that can help you avoid your house becoming messy throughout the process. However, loft conversions can be done at any time of the year. Contractors will take special care to keep your roof covered so that your home remains warm. Or you can consider getting alternative accommodation to stay in while the loft conversion is being constructed. 

Why Are Loft Conversions So Popular?

Loft conversions are a popular choice as they are a great way to utilise the space that is already present in your home to create a larger property and add more value. With a loft conversion, you are simply making changes to the existing loft space and do not need to build as much as you would with an extension, for example. A simple loft conversion may not require any additional building work at all, and in many cases, you do not need to get planning permission, making the process quicker and easier. The amount of value that a loft conversion can add to your home is another reason why it’s a popular option. A loft conversion bedroom/bathroom can add tens of thousands of pounds in value to your property. Along with this, more and more homeowners are considering loft conversions due to changing needs. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, more people than ever before are now working from home permanently, which has led to more loft conversions to create office space within homes. 

Top Reasons to Get a Loft Conversion

If you want to improve your home, here are some of the top reasons to consider getting a loft conversion:

Storage Needs

A simple loft conversion can be one of the best ways to create more storage space in your home. Whether you’re struggling to fit all your stuff neatly into a smaller home or paying monthly for a storage space, a loft conversion can make your life easier. Many loft spaces don’t make for great storage as they are since they are difficult to get into and may be cold and damp. With a loft conversion, you can create a walk-in wardrobe or a storage room for your home. 

Additional Rooms

One of the main reasons to get a loft conversion is to create an additional room in your home. Home offices are a popular choice right now as an increasing number of people adjust to working from home and want a room in their home that is free from distractions for working. Loft conversions can also be made into bedrooms, bathrooms, playrooms, and any other type of room that you want. 

Property Value

Finally, a loft conversion can seriously increase the value of your home and is worth considering if you want to sell in the future. Adding a bedroom, bathroom, or both by means of a loft conversion could boost the value of an average property by around £20-30k or more.
