Did you know that completing an attic conversion can increase the value of your home by almost 20 percent? In simple terms, if your house is worth £200,000, an attic renovation could add a further £40,000 to its re-sale value, making it one of the best building renovation projects for those looking to increase the value of their home.
Even if you’re not looking to move anytime soon, a loft conversion will help you maximise the available space in your home and give you an additional room that can be used for just about anything.
Whether you want to increase the value or increase the space, London Urban can help you with your refurbishment project. We are one of the leading home renovation companies in London and have completed countless loft/attic London renovations.
We regularly work with homeowners and assist them in bringing their visions to life. If you’re unsure what your vision might be or how you might use an attic conversion, we’ve put together some inspirational ideas to highlight the versatility of this type of home improvement.
With many London houses being terraced and the city comprising the smallest average garden size in the UK, the option to extend sideways or backwards often isn’t there in the city. This means for those looking to make space for a new arrival, the only viable option is to extend upwards.
Adding in a window or skylight (depending on your attic shape) and sticking to a bright, warm colour palette will make your loft feel cosy and safe, perfect for a nursery. A thick and comfy carpet and wall-mounted lights will instantly turn a previously cold and dark space into an airy environment with lots of floor space ideal for nurturing a newborn and housing all the furniture required to do so.
What’s more, the upstairs placement will ensure your baby is away from potential noise from communal living areas, allowing them to rest undisturbed.
If you’ve recently started working from home on a permanent basis but don’t yet have a dedicated space to do so, converting your attic into a home office is a great idea. Not only will you be able to keep your bedroom for rest, your living room for relaxing, and your dining room for eating, but you will also be able to better your productivity by working in a professional and quiet environment.
Do you have a large family? If so, you’ll know the struggle of fitting everyone into one room, and you’ll be familiar with the issue of trying to find something for everyone to enjoy in the evening. If your family is slowly outgrowing a single living room, you might consider an attic renovation to create a second family room.
Bedrooms are precious real estate, especially in London, so if you’re looking to increase your home’s value, an attic conversion is one of the best ways to accommodate an extra head. This is also a great option if your family is growing but you don’t want to move house because you love your current location.
Attics tend to make great master suites, and some are even big enough to accommodate an ensuite, but it depends on your roof shape, so it may be that you keep your master bedroom on a lower level and use the attic as a bedroom for a child or guests.
Ever wanted a place to go to get away from it all; somewhere where it’s quiet and soothing? A snug is the perfect place to achieve this little slice of heaven, but unfortunately, most homeowners don’t immediately have a spare room on-hand to turn into a snug. If this is the case for you, an attic renovation could be just what you need to create a cosy room to retreat to.
You can place a small sofa or some comfy chairs, a bookcase, and a warm-toned lamp in there to make it feel like a proper snug.
