A loft conversion has always been a smart choice for those who want to increase their living space as well as add value to their home. This space can be revamped to create a bedroom, den, family room or even an additional flat with its own private entrance. Remodeling this space is typically less expensive than adding a room onto a home is.► Click For Free Loft Conversion Quotes ◄
Modern loft conversions are more contemporary than they were in years past. They do not have to be dark and dreary spaces as skylights and windows that are strategically placed can actually make them rather light and airy. Most loft conversions can also contain intricate features such as vaulted ceilings, fireplaces, and built-in storage units, just to name a few options. In areas where space is especially limited, dormer windows could be added to the loft to increase the overall living area while also allowing more natural light to enter.
Average loft conversion costs can vary based upon the extent of the remodel. Some projects could call for only the floors and walls to be finished, while others would require the ceiling to be revamped as well. The more work that needs to be done, the higher conversion costs will be. Adding dormer windows or skylights will increase the cost, as could including fireplaces or other amenities. Local building codes could require modifications to an existing stairwell, or the addition of a fire escape, and both of these things would increase the cost substantially.

Q. Can I convert my loft myself?

However, itís important to keep in mind that a lot of the work will require a professionalís skills (such as joinery) to ensure the area is stable and conforms to council regulations. Additionally, when the time comes to sell your home, if there are any signs of poor DIY work, this may negatively affect the price. Itís worth saving yourself the trouble by at least requesting a free quotation from our network of professionals and hear what they have to say. Having the work done professionally may even save you money.
Q. What can I do with my loft that has a very low ceiling?
A. A loft with a very low ceiling could be ideal for turning into a childís bedroom or play area. You may also want to turn it into a study or home office. To make your low-ceiling loft more practical, consider adding a dormer on one or both sides of your roof to increase the amount of headspace thatís available.
