When Renovation Beats Relocation

September 19, 2013

A loft conversion, kitchen extension or extra bathroom can all add value to your home.

People are increasingly coming to the conclusion that extending what they have, rather than moving to a new property is a much more desirable option than incurring expensive estate agents’ fees and moving costs.

Still very much in demand, and something to think about if you’re extending, are open plan living spaces: where all the family can be together whilst doing different things. Agents say that a spacious kitchen-diner if often what sells a property. If you have a Victorian or Edwardian property with a side return, filling this in to create a large kitchen-dining space can add 10-20% to the price of your property – and give you a large space that fits today’s lifestyles.

Elsewhere in a property, increasing the number of bedrooms is the obvious value-adding improvement. Many of Cube Lofts’ customers have converted their loft spaces to accommodate their growing families.

It is always a good idea to add an extra bathroom. Wet rooms and shower rooms are becoming more popular as people are aware that showering is the greener option. If you are short of space, corner basins and showers can be used to keep the en-suite as compact as possible.

There are endless reasons why you might need extra space: perhaps for an office or guest room, TV or teenagers’ room, and putting a loft to better use by making it habitable will definitely add value to your home.

Why not let Cube Lofts turn that wasted space in your loft, or extend your property, into extra living space?
