Many properties provide potential for expansion – either up, out or even down. Providing building works are undertaken sensibly, such work can add value to your home while giving your family more room to live and work.

With a little imagination and some expert advice, you could add a conservatory, convert your loft space into the home office or spare room you've always wanted. Its also useful for those looking to improve their property before putting it on the market, or for homebuyers planning to take on a property with a view to developing it.

The most obvious benefit of having a loft conversion is the fact that space will be added to your home which is a great solution for a family who needs an extra bedroom, or for someone who wants office space. In fact there are many reasons why people choose to have their loft converted.
Many people may opt to extend the space in their house by the addition of a conservatory or other rooms on the ground floor, though one of the benefits of converting the loft is that you may open up a whole different perspective. It may be possible to create windows that give access to a beautiful view, or even to add a balcony in time.
Planning permission has always been an obstacle for any kind of home extension, though the process has been made a lot easier with regulations relaxed by the government in an attempt to make our homes more valuable. Many loft conversions that do not add an extension will not even require planning permission, and those that do should find it a lot easier than in the past.

With moving house a somewhat unattractive prospect for many people right now, expanding the home you live in might be a viable alternative.
Extensions and loft conversions can be the obvious choices but what about that extra, neglected room that is used solely for storing bikes, general household junk and other items accumulated over the years? We are, of course, referring to the garage.

By converting your garage into living space, you could not only make use of valuable but under utilised square feet, you could also take the opportunity to rid yourself of quantities of clutter. And unlike extensions and loft conversions which can take months to complete, you could have your new room in just a matter of three or four weeks

Garage conversions can be used for all kinds of purposes. Perhaps you want another living room or a new dining room, or maybe a study or office. A garage conversion can provide an extra bathroom or a larger kitchen. It can be a playroom or even a home gym.

Apart from the obvious one of, making your home look attractive to the eye. External decorating can save a lot of money in the long term, especially where timber fascias, doors and windows are concerned. Leave them unattended and they will rot. It's cheaper to have them decorated every 5 years or so.
