If you are trying to sell your house, there one little trick that you can do to increase its value. Converting your loft into an extra room can increase the value of your home by up to twenty per cent. If you want to make extra money, renting out your loft is also an excellent idea.

Here are some ideas of how you can convert your loft.

Make it an extra bedroom

Converting your loft to a spare bedroom can increase your property value by eleven per cent. If the room has a bathroom, then having an additional en suite bedroom is an added advantage. Converting a loft is quite expensive and can cost between ten thousand pounds and forty thousand pounds depending on the size of the space and the materials used.


Having a designated area for children to play and learn adds a unique selling point. Having a playroom far from the living and dining area ensures that your house is free of clutter caused by toys and other play material. Your kids will also appreciate having a room where they can just let loose and play without worrying about creating a mess.

A home office

Most lofts have a lot of natural light and are far from the chaos going on downstairs. Turning it into a home office is a great idea, especially if you are working with a small space. Most buyers appreciate having a room for them to work in that is not the bedroom. Converting a loft into an office is a cheaper option because not much construction is needed.

Before you start the conversion process, consult a professional on how best you can utilise the space you have. The goal is to make more room if you plan to continue living in your house or increase the value of your house if you want to sell it. Work with a reasonable budget during this process, so that you don’t spend more than you will get back. If you have any further questions then contact us at R & K Design and Build today!
