However one thing that has always bugged me about loft conversions is home damage. You should always check your home insurance polices prior to doing work on your home and then once work is carried out because you never know what might happen to your cosy new room. I know my mam's house used to have tiles come off the roof all the time in bad weather allowing for rain water to seep into the brick work or if it was really bad straight into the loft itself. Imagine this happening if your loft was your room, it would be a nightmare to fix without insurance and your stuff would most likely be damaged too. It's not just the weather that could ruin it, loft floor boards are sometimes thin and can result in you putting your foot through them! Luckily you can get home insurance from Legal & General which covers all of these things. Their insurance deals are pretty good to be honest, there's different types of cover depending on what you want, definitely worth taking a look.
How good would it be though to get your loft converted so you have your own little space away from the rest of the house. I know from experience all the conversions I've seen have been so bright due to the natural light then on a night the cosiest little rooms ever. I could honestly sit and talk dream homes and home interior all day long but I think I'll just leave it there haha. A loft conversion is definitely the dream for me, one day I will have my little room of books where I can escape from the world, until then I will dream.
