Why not? When was the last time you really used it ?

We all love the idea of the loft. You only have to mention the word, and everyone has the same image – dusty toys, old books and cobwebs. Not to mention that ancient yellow insulation! It is a great place and we seem to use it as the perfect location to hide things we don’t use often.
Do you really want to store all those things up there? We all love a bit of extra space, and a loft conversion is the perfect answer.
Turning the loft into an office, a spare room or a guest bedroom is much cheaper than building an extension. It makes full use of wasted space, and it enhances the value of your property.

A loft conversion is a very economic decision. According to mortgage lenders at least 50% of homeowners find the cost of moving beyond them and decide to stay put. Converting existing space offers an affordable way to gain that extra space.


What can the extra room be used for?

Here are a few examples:

TV Room:
This is ideal for households with teenage children. A separate room, set aside for entertainment is a great way to avoid all those rows over who watches what!

Children’s Playroom:
For most toddlers, the living room floor is a sufficient play area. Once children reach the age of 6-11 years, however, they will certainly need a bigger place to let off steam.

The loft can be the ideal place. It is well away from the main living area, and as space is the important the play area

Guest Bedroom:
The average, family home does not have a guest bedroom, so it’s not surprising that this is fast becoming the most popular choices for loft conversions.

An attic bedroom is ideal – it will absorb some of the heat loss from rooms lower down in the house. The size of most attics is also in keeping with a basic guest room, and most houses will have enough space to include a small basin.


A surprising number of attics are being turned into extra bathrooms. These can be a godsend, especially where teenagers and guests are concerned.

Attics are easily plumbed into the main system, and most lofts will have enough space for both a bath and shower.

Hundreds of entrepreneurs have started a firm from an office in the attic, and thanks to the Internet increasing numbers of employees are opting to work from home part-time. Whether you are setting up your own business or just want a quiet area to work, the loft can be the ideal office.
