If you have an attic or basement space that is going unused, then you should definitely consider converting it into a living room or bedroom. Not only will adding a new room to your property open up many possibilities for how you use the space, but it will also add more value to your home, up to 10 percent* if you’re using the new room as a bedroom.

Copperwood Construction has a wealth of experience in this area, with a wide portfolio of stunning room conversion and renovation projects to our name. Here are some pieces of advice from our team on why you should consider converting your attic, basement or spare room:
Utilise Your Space
In many homes, the basement or loft areas are reserved solely for storage. By having the rooms properly insulated and renovated, you can transform these spaces into whatever you desire, whether it’s a new bedroom or en-suite guest room, a lounge, a playroom for the kids or a home office/workshop. If you’ve found that your attic or basement has simply become full of things gathering dust, then converting the space can also be a good reason to de-clutter your home.
It’s not just these utility rooms in your home that can make for great new spaces, however. Circumstances change over the years, and the rooms you once used perhaps are left empty the majority of the time. By converting these spaces, you open up new opportunities to change how you live in your home.
Here are some other ways to utilise underused spaces in your house:
- Bedroom lying empty after children move out? Renovate and turn it into a new guest bedroom.
- Study space gathering dust? It may be better suited as a guest room too.
- No longer using your dining room? Convert the space into a lounge or home office.
It’s really all down to what best suits your desire for your home!
Increase Your Home’s Value
While converting your unused rooms is very useful, it’s also a practical decision if you see yourself moving house in the long term. As mentioned above, having an additional bedroom can drive the asking price for your property up by around 10 percent when you come to sell. Not only that, but it will make the property instantly more appealing to certain buyers, especially if you’ve refurbished several of the rooms and created more space. This makes conversions a good investment to make if you’re already in the process of renovating a property to sell.
