Is loft conversion worth in Kensington?

Well!!! If we say honestly, we'd all love a little extra room and a lot of space, wouldn't we? However, if we look practically, every household often struggles to balance storage and living space.

So, let's discuss the advantages of a loft conversion.

  • Add value at your existing house - Many properties experts agreed on this that a loft conversion is a great way to increase your existing property value and an excellent way of investment. Additionally, several market research has proven that it helps in increasing house value up to 20%, by around £37,000. There is no such other way of home improvement, which costs so comparatively and adds so much value within.
  • Maximize your space -  This is one of the most significant advantages of having a loft conversion. A well-planned attic conversion provides additional storage underneath new stairs and decreases the stress on the rest of the rooms in your home as well. Transforming 'dead' space into something remarkably useful and has a genuine benefit.
  • Avoid the cost and hassle of moving -  Solicitor fees and property costs are much higher, which continues to rise with each passing year. Plus, if you are opting for the move, you need to settle your work, your kid's schools and have to go through packing traumas and stress of moving house.
  • Add a natural light resource - Dormers and Velux conversion let in much more light than the other windows in your home. It means loft conversions allow the maximum amount of sunshine to enter rooms.
  • Create a room with a view - People are so used to looking out onto the other houses on our street from their own windows. That can be a truly delightful surprise when we gaze out of our loft room's windows to take in the sea or the Downs in the distance.
  • Save your time and money - The reason that loft conversions are often cheaper on a price per square metre is that much of the structures are already in place. Also, the average extension only adds an average of £16,000 to a property, and it also costs considerably more to complete.
