New Year, New Loft

2020 has undoubtedly been a year like no other, and one that most of us were relieved to bid farewell to. However, it was also a year of adaptation and self-reflection, prompting many of us to make a few resolutions for 2021. Among these resolutions, one exciting possibility could be reimagining the way we utilize our living spaces, making this year an opportune time to consider investing in a loft conversion.

Rethinking Our Homes

In recent times, our homes have transformed into more than just living spaces. They have become multifunctional hubs for work, recreation, and even education. As a result, many individuals have started reconsidering the way they utilise their living spaces. With an increasing number of people working from home, whether part-time or full-time, the boundary between work and home has never been more important.

Finding yourself working from the dining room table or a cramped corner of the garage is simply not a sustainable solution for the long term. It's time to reimagine how your family lives and make some crucial changes moving forward.

You might consider a loft conversion as the perfect location for a brand new home office, or perhaps you'd prefer to move your master bedroom into the loft and utilise the existing bedroom as an office space. Our team of experts at Econoloft will carefully discuss your short-term and long-term needs to create a versatile space that can adapt as your circumstances evolve.

Invest In Your Home

While it remains challenging to anticipate the exact trajectory of the property market in 2021, the previous year proved that anything is possible. Despite the odds, residential property prices in the UK experienced their fastest growth in four years.

According to Rightmove, property experts predict a 4% increase in asking prices for 2021. Although the pace of increase may be slightly lower than in 2020, the demand for properties in sought-after areas such as Greater London, the South East, East Sussex, and the Home Counties continues to remain strong.

Considering the potential benefits, it is always a wise decision to increase the floor space of your home, especially in these areas. Experts in the property market agree that one of the most effective ways to enhance the value of your property is by investing in a professionally constructed loft conversion. A recent study conducted by Nationwide revealed that a loft conversion, which adds an additional bedroom and en-suite bathroom, can potentially increase a property's worth by an average of 21 percent. Therefore, it is evident that adding more space to your home often results in a significant boost in its value.

More Space At Home

No matter how you envision using your home, the desire for more space to kick back and relax is shared by most families. It's no wonder, considering that our homes are some of the tiniest in Europe. Whether it's giving your kids their own bedrooms or indulging in the luxury of a master bedroom suite as your personal sanctuary from the chaos of daily life, it's a dream that many hold dear.

Even though we are currently in lockdown at the time of writing, Econoloft has the capability to plan and estimate your new loft conversion using a variety of virtual tools. Once you agree to proceed with your loft conversion, we can still begin the work since the construction sector is exempt from many of the restrictions. This is another advantage of a loft conversion, as most of the initial stages of the project can be carried out outside of your home.

The only thing preventing you from creating the perfect home is your imagination. Whether you envision a luxurious master bedroom, a functional home office, a cozy teenage den, a vibrant music room, a creative craft and hobby space, or even a room for an au pair or relative, 2021 is the year to transform your home into the haven you deserve. What would you choose to have?
