Rooms to Add to Your House to Boost Its Value

Rooms to Add to Your House to Boost Its Value

Adding extra value to your home can be a tricky game to play. Needing additional space for you and your family can be a toss-up between moving house or adding on extra space and making improvements. Either can be incredibly expensive, but adding extra bedrooms to your home can be more beneficial as it’ll boost the value of your property.

Architects in Warrington know that choosing to add rooms to your property can be a stressful ordeal, especially in deciding which room to add. That’s why they want to give you a list of the best rooms to add to your home for the best-added value.

Garden Room

Adding a unique and quirky room to your property is the best way to add value to your home as it gives you a unique selling point. DIY garden rooms can cost you as little as £6,000, making it the perfect investment.

In order to make it liveable, adding details like good insulation, double glazing and bathrooms are aspects you need to think of during your project. Adding electric heating to the room is usually a good idea too, as it’s easier and cheaper than extending the gas pipes. All of this, however, can push your project up to £20,000-£40,000. Did we say how good an investment it is?

Attic Room

Adding an attic room is the most popular of conversions as it’s incredibly fuss-free and there are limited needs for obtaining planning permission. Most lofts can be converted, making them the perfect place to add a room. You don’t even need to add an extra room as the space is already there ready to be used.

The items you need to take into consideration all depend on how suitable your loft is for conversion, such as the correct head height and the safety of the floor and how stable it already is. This conversion can set you back anywhere between £20,000 to £60,000, depending on the size of your space.


A garage is also a good option for an addition to your home. Garage conversions tend to be not as structurally sound as other areas in the house, however still make a solid contender for one of the best options for an additional room. Including an en-suite is also a good idea for this room, especially if you’re using it as a guest bedroom.

It will probably cost around £10,000 to convert your garage into a bedroom. Being one of the most cost-effective options for your home, architects in Warrington advise this being a good option for anyone building on a budget.

Extra Bathroom

Going simple and adding one extra bathroom to your home can also add a significant amount of value to your property. An additional bedroom can potentially add 6 per cent to the value of your home.

Depending on the type of tiles, fittings and fixtures you want, a new bathroom could cost anything from £2,500 to upwards of £6,000.
