Prices Will Vary

The cost of a conversion loft will vary depending on its extravagance. The cost of a conversion loft (or attic loft) will be based primarily on the size of the space, kitchen and ventilation needs. Overall, conversion lofts, according to Bron Build, "form extra rooms to increase living space" and are "very popular" in both the U.S. and England.

Installations Can Be Expensive

Installation and maintenance work can exorbitantly increase the cost of a conversion loft. In order to live in an attic, explains Luxus Lofts, "bathroom electrics, smoke detectors and radiators" must also be installed. Every addition, especially those regarding "plumbing" and "electrical requirements," will make the cost higher.

Bottom Line

An average conversion loft sized at 131 square feet can cost 15,380.44 in British pounds--equal to £15,400.7 in American dollars. Adding additional rooms, warns Luxus Lofts, such as a "spare bedroom, home office or kid's playroom," can close to double the price of a conversion loft. Consult a variety of contractors to determine a price that fits your budget.
