Purchasing a bigger property with more storage and maybe more room may seem like the only option for more space. But that isn’t the truth, as before you decide to sell your house for a larger one, there are several other alternatives to consider, including considering a room conversion.
An attic conversion is a perfect way to use the dead spaces of your house, which can reflect 20% of your square footage. By converting a completely empty attic, for instance, into a functioning room in your home that fully meets your needs and budget, you can gain a lot of advantages. Typically this area can be transformed into a bedroom, office space, a gym or even a storage space.
An attic conversion is an essential home improvement project that will take up most of your attention for the project’s duration. However, the benefits of this type of home improvement project far outweigh the temporary costs and inconveniences it may create, as it will add not only extra space to your home, but it can also add to the financial value, which will grow over many years to come.
When converting an attic into a room, it is necessary to collect all of the required information, materials and other elements you need to make sure this conversion is done correctly, suiting your structure perfectly and does not end up costing you a lot of money. And that’s part of our job; you don’t have to worry about anything but the style you desire. The good thing about conversion is that you don’t need planning permission for attic conversions if you’re transforming the empty space into a room without changing the roof’s structure.
Functional, stylish & practical new builds.

An attic conversion can be one of the most cost-effective ways to add space to your home without stress. With additional room and storage space, this will, in turn, add value to your house. This will prevent you from having to extend into the garden, making it a smart investment. Attic conversions vary in price depending on what you are looking for, along with the size of the transformation.

- A finished attic space needs to be accessible by a set of straight or corkscrew stairs leading to a standard sized doorway.
- Framing the walls and ceiling.
- Hanging drywall.
- Installing heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
- Installing electrical outlets and phone jacks.

Converting an attic is a relatively economic way of creating additional accommodation in a house. However, if you intend to raise the height of the roof in a dormer-style extension, then this will alter the appearance of the house and planning permission will be required.
In general, an attic conversion costs far less than a ground-floor extension. It also has the benefit of not taking away some of your garden space. Although as we know an attic conversion can add significant value to your home, it is important to remember that if the conversion is not done correctly, the exact opposite might be the case!
If an attic conversion is done correctly, it could add up to €50,000 to the value of your home. So choosing a reliable company to do the conversion is vital, or it could end up costing you more than it’s worth.
