I got my loft conversion a few years back, and I can safely say it has changed my life.
Before the conversion, everyone was running around and I was constantly struggling for space. Kids everywhere! It was a nightmare.
We did think about moving, but we couldn’t afford somewhere bigger. Plus, where we’re living right now was perfect for our commutes, and for the kids’ schools.
So we decide to get a loft conversion. And all I can say is that I wish we’d done it sooner!
We live in a fairly typical London terraced house. So we decided to opt for a fairly typical loft conversion.
We’ve added two bedrooms and a bathroom. It doesn’t sound like it would change much. But it has made a massive difference.
No more queues for the bathroom every morning, and the kids have their own space away from us.
Of course, it wasn’t cheap. We paid just over £20,000 – that’s about the typical cost of a London loft conversion.
But it was still more reasonable than moving house.
There was some disruption too, and I’ve got to say that the dust during the building work was a bit of a nightmare!
But the company we hired did a great job at cleaning everything up afterwards, and it was worth a few weeks of disruption to get that life changing loft conversion.
So what would I say to anyone who is thinking of getting a loft conversion?
Well, my main piece of advice is do it as soon as you can!
If you’ve started thinking about a loft conversion, then the chances are you really do need one.
And I can guarantee that was soon as you’ve got your conversion finished, you’ll be wondering why you left it so long!
Plus, if you’re anything like me you’ll relish the opportunity to decoarate and furnish your new space.
We’ve got two modern bedrooms that otherwise we wouldn’t be able to have in a house that’s as old as ours.
Plus, the fact the bedrooms and well insulated means the kids moan about being cold less often, so we can keep the heating off for longer!
Then there’s the fact that if we ever do want to sell our house, we’re pretty confident that we’ve added some extra value to it.
We might stay here until the kids are old enough to leave home, but after that if we do decide to downsize, we’ll know we have a little bit extra to help them through university, or wherever life takes them.
