You can use your loft conversion for a variety of purposes and they are extremely versatile as an extra bedroom and bathroom, as a lounge or additional living area, as an office or even a gym or home cinema. Adding a loft conversion with a bathroom and a double bedroom typically adds around 20% to the value of a three-bed, one-bathroom property. Converting your loft is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to boost the square footage of your home in Crawley.
