Before you spend any money on design or construction, you should first understand the existing structure of your loft to determine whether the changes you're considering will be profitable. For example, your loft must adhere to The Planning Portal's height measurements. Why? Because there must be enough headroom in the finished conversion and to ensure the area is safe while construction is underway. A loft conversion with a low ceiling can only be used for storage, not as a living space.
The addition of a loft for storage will not significantly increase the value of your home. If your existing loft space is not high enough to convert with the addition of roof windows, you may still be able to access extra headspace by modifying sections of the roof. However, this will necessitate obtaining planning permission. Working well in advance of your planned completion date will be critical because this can be a lengthy process that is not guaranteed to end with approval. Remember that planning applications will incur additional costs to your project, which will be deducted from your profit at the end.
You can start thinking about how to use your new space once you've received confirmation that your loft is suitable for conversion. Remember to include a contingency plan because there will always be a surprise or two. Consider the average prices for essentials such as preparing the existing loft for conversion, any rewiring, access arrangements, and fitting both flooring and roof windows when determining your budget. You should contact several architects or loft conversion specialists to obtain the most competitive quotes for each of these processes, then base your budget on the top three.
You may intend to use the space as a home office or a hobby room, in which case plenty of natural light will be required. This will necessitate careful consideration of how and where you place your roof windows. This could include installing a new bathroom, wet room, or ensuite. The most reliable way to add value and sellability is to define the space as a valuable, usable area, such as a new bedroom.

By converting your loft, it makes use of “unused” space to create an extra bedroom or bathroom, rather than eating into your garden. Overall, it costs less per square metre to convert a loft rather than build a rear or side extension, as most of the structure needed is already in place. Most of the loft conversions can be carried out without the need for planning permission if they don’t exceed a certain size. (40 cubic metres for a terraced property and 50 cubic metres for a detached house).
