According to the property experts, the very best way to increase the value of your home is to create extra living space.
The easiest and most affordable way to achieve this is by converting a storage space like a garage or loft into another bedroom or living room, incorporating unused areas of your property into your home.
Once all the hard work of converting your space has been done, you can enjoy the fun part: kitting it out with brand new furnishings and making your new space a real part of your home.
As most loft conversions are used as extra bedrooms, you’ll most likely need a nice new bed to furnish your space.
If the room is going to be a permanent bedroom, you’ll probably want to invest in a good-quality mattress and bed frame to help make the most of the conversion.
However if you’re going to use the space mostly as an office and occasional bedroom, a sofa bed would offer more flexibility while still providing the extra sleeping capacity that you need.
As garage conversions are often used as extra living space, investing in a good-quality sofa is a must.
As the sofa will be one of the main features in the space, you should ideally start looking for a sofa before you begin your conversion so that you can make sure the finished space will suit your needs perfectly.
Without adequate storage it’s almost impossible to keep a home looking clean and tidy so ensure that your new conversion has enough cupboards, wardrobes and shelves.
Again, you should always try to work storage into your original design, building units into cavities and alcoves where necessary.
If this isn’t possible, you should still be able to work good storage solutions into the space by careful consideration. You may want to take measurements and plan for exactly what you’ll need and how you’ll use it once the room is completed.
Good lighting can totally transform the look and feel of a space and is one of the best interior design tools around.
Look out for feature-standing lamps, table lamps and ceiling lamps and turn your lighting into one of the most impressive parts of your conversion.
Adding extra living space to your home is a great way to improve your quality of life and increase the value of your property and by properly furnishing and decorating it, you can create a great space for you and your family to really enjoy.
