The Limitless Possibilities Of A Loft Conversion
Loft conversions in London are much in demand at the moment, with rises in property prices meaning that it is more difficult for homeowners to move to a larger property. The loft space can be used to provide an extra living space that will not only provide more comfortable living but will also add value to the property. Here are a few loft conversion ideas to help you make maximum use of your existing property.
The easiest and most obvious answer is to convert the loft into an extra bedroom, which is ideal for a growing family. An even better idea for mum and dad would be to convert the loft into a master suite, with a master bedroom and ensuite bathroom allowing them to have their own little oasis away from the rest of the family. This will also free up the previous master bedroom for the eldest child to have a larger space.
The space can also be designed for the elder child who is going to college or university and needs to have a quiet space in which to study. The loft area generally covers the entire home, so will be plenty big enough for a bedroom and study area, and possibly even for a small washroom.
An older child who cannot afford to leave home would be delighted to have their own studio style apartment built in the loft, where they can be semi-independent while still living at home.
Very often a three or four bedroom house will only have one bathroom, so the loft conversion provides an opportunity for a second bathroom, even if the loft is only small. On the other hand a large loft area could be converted into the beautiful spa bathroom of which you have always dreamed!
Another loft conversion idea would be to create a space for younger children, either as a play room or as a combined bedroom and play area.
The loft provides the opportunity for a guest room, although this may not be the ideal location for a bedroom if the intended guests are elderly parents or grandparents, but if family members were to move into the newly created loft bedroom, then their recently vacated room could be converted to a guest room.
There are so many loft conversion ideas that will not only make your home more habitable, but will also greatly increase the value of your property. The overall square footage of the property is a major factor in the valuation, so any costs incurred in the conversion of the space will soon be recuperated when you decide to sell.
