Can you convert an attic?

What are some attic and loft conversion ideas in South West Hertfordshire?

If your attic or loft is currently sitting empty, there are plenty of ideas you can consider to renovate the space. From an extra bedroom to a children’s play area, a home Pilates studio to an office, a loft conversion can have a positive impact on your living space.

If it’s a dormer loft conversion you want to embark on, consider turning it into a guest suite or extra bedroom. Dormer lofts have slightly more space available which could enable you to include a bathroom as part of the layout. Partition walls can act as functional dividers allowing you to create multiple living areas in the one space.

If it’s a bungalow loft conversion you’re contemplating, consider turning the space into a home office. This helps to divide work space from the rest of the home, and could mean your temporary office becomes an extra bedroom elsewhere in the house. A home office can have wooden floors and minimal furniture, which will make the loft feel spacious, and the natural light from skylights and loft windows will ensure it’s a welcoming space to be productive.

Some homeowners have converted their loft as part of a bigger home renovation. In South London, a breathtaking home renovation saw a three-bedroom, mid-terrace home transformed into a five-bed luxury property, which boasted a gorgeous shower room in the loft. The six month project cost £180,000 but added a third of the property value onto the home.

Another full home renovation in Surrey included updating a kitchen, utility room, and an upstairs bathroom, of which access to the loft was included. The results of this £71,000 project were beyond this homeowner’s expectations and have transformed her house.
