Spare Bedroom and Bathroom
This is one of the most popular uses for a loft conversion. If your family is expanding, or you simply want to have a spare room in your home for guests staying over, then a loft conversion can be an ideal option. As long as your loft conversion meets building regulations, including having a dedicated staircase to go up to the loft, you can turn your property from a two- or three-bedroom property to a three- or four-bedroom, which can add significant value if you decide to sell too.
With more and more people now working from home after the COVID-19 pandemic, having a home office in your property makes a lot of sense. If you have been working full-time on the kitchen table or in the corner of a spare room for the past couple of years, then you might have decided that it’s time to get yourself a dedicated office space. A loft conversion can be the ideal space in your home to turn into a home office, giving you somewhere where you can work from home uninterrupted.
Many people use their lofts for storage, but the nature of the area means that you may have to be careful of what you store up there as otherwise, it could become mouldy due to the moisture. A storage room is one of the most popular loft conversion ideas for homes where you don’t have much storage and don’t need another bedroom or bathroom. You can use the area for storing clothes, toys, or all that stuff that you need to keep but don’t have anywhere to store, like DIY tools.
Another idea to consider if you want to get a loft conversion is a games room. A loft conversion can quickly become a fun space in your home for you and your family to spend time. You can add a big screen TV on the wall and some consoles, or even turn it into a home cinema space with surround sound and a projector for an amazing, cosy space where you can watch all your favourite films and TV shows.
Value Added to Your Home
The truth is that no matter what you decide to do with your loft conversion, the loft conversion value added to your home is pretty much the same. How much value you can add to your home will depend on several factors, including the type of loft conversion you go for and the size of the loft. A dormer loft conversion, for example, will usually add more value than a simple loft conversion as it is larger and offers a bigger room. Adding a bathroom can also make your home more valuable.
