Add to Your Property with a Loft Conversion

Add to Your Property with a Loft Conversion

Many homeowners can be stuck in their property because they can't afford to move up the housing ladder, but they might also need to find more space to accommodate a growing family. In this case, adding to your existing property can be a cost-effective way of achieving the space without having to move, and loft conversions that are accessed by stainless steel staircases can be a practical extension that bring a number of benefits to your home.

The loft space in many homes is generally not maximised and is often simply used as a dead storage space, so it's an ideal room to convert into an additional bedroom, bathroom or play area. This type of extension can be carried out in most properties and enhances the space you have to help you get the most from your home.

Increase Your Property's Value

Loft conversions can be costly, but you need to weigh this up against the increase you will see in the value of your property once the work is completed. If the conversion is carried out professionally, this can add as much as 20% to the value and make your property more appealing if you're looking to sell in the future.

Create More Usable Space

A loft conversion makes better use of the space you already have and can be better than building an extension or conservatory, which will take away from your outside areas. With well-planned conversions, where the stainless steel staircases don't impact on the lower floor, you'll improve the features of your home and create additional space without the negative effects.

Reduce Planning Problems

Extending your home outwards or upwards will generally need planning permission before you can start any work, but in most cases a loft conversion won't unless it will significantly change the exterior look of the property. This reduces the time, cost and inconvenience of the work, enabling you to enjoy your new space sooner.

A Bright and Airy Space

Being situated at the top of your property, loft conversions benefit from enhanced views and you'll get a different outlook from the other rooms, so it might even feel as if you've moved house. Choosing the right style of windows will also help to make the most of the natural light, giving you a space that is light and airy and can be used for a range of purposes, from a bedroom to a home office.
