Are you sick of the sound of music blasting from your kid’s room? Do you want that small semblance of privacy back in your life? Are you constantly tripping over each other? Well think about secluding them from the rest of your house with a teenage den in the attic.
If you have an attic in your house that is currently full of Christmas decorations and random boxes, you simply aren’t making the most of your home. You can convert your attic into a bedroom with en-suite bathroom and give your child a space they can really be proud of, which in turn gives you the privacy to enjoy the rest of your home in peace. We all love our children, but we also know how much we’d love them to have their own space sometimes.
You could also be struggling with space in a cramped home. A lot of Irish families felt the pain of the recession and are trapped in a house that is too small. Our children are also paying the price by being forced to share bedrooms, so opening up your attic space and creating a whole new room could be the gift that gives to you all. It will also inevitably add value to your home – up to 10% in some cases.
You’d be amazed at the possibilities – even with a confined space at your disposal you can create an inspiring space that will give your child a new lease of life. If you want to create a truly grand design, though, you might want to consider a dormer conversion that will allow you to increase the surface area and create what is effectively an extra floor so your child can live in the lap of luxury. A variety of attic window options means you don’t have to deal with poor light, either.
As well as creating the kind of dramatic, self-contained space that we all dreamed of as children, you can opt for en-suite facilities that mean you really will have total privacy and can finally enjoy a relaxing bath without fear of interruption. You can also fit sound insulation to ensure that your child’s idea of music doesn’t ruin your evenings.
Dormer conversions often require no planning permission, although it’s essential to check before commencing any kind of work as there are instances where you do need to get proper permission for building work.
You could totally change the look and feel of your home with minimal investment and potentially even no paperwork to worry about. So get in touch if you want to open up your attic and a whole new way of living today.
