Loft conversions are a great way to add space and value to your home, but at what cost? This price will depend on the structure of your roof, the available space you have in your loft, and alterations that may need to be made for the staircase. On top of this, you have the added cost of interior design.
Because most loft conversions do not require planning permission, they are often considered to be one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways of adding living space and value to your house. At the core, there are two different types of loft conversions - one that requires no change to the loft structure, and ones that do. We will explore various versions of these below.
Room in Roof Loft Conversion
This is the most basic of conversions, and therefore can be carried out at the lowest price. A Room in Roof simply refers to an existing roof structure that is suitable for a loft conversion. However, it’s not quite as straightforward as it may seem... you’ll still need to consider:
- Added insulation
- A staircase
- Electrics, lighting, and heating
- Fire safety measures
The total cost will depend on what level of quality you’ll go for regarding each of these aspects.
