Loft Conversion & Interior Design Blog

Are you under 30 years old and do you have £93,000 in the bank? Probably not.  But according to Lloyds Bank this is the average deposit paid by London first time buyers. This probably goes some way to explain why Econoloft has seen a sharp increase in the number of families having a loft conversion in London – not for young children – but to accommodate adult children who simply can’t afford to leave home.

Econoloft understand how having a loft conversion is a big decision. A loft conversion will mean significant financial outlay and it involves major building work and so it’s important you choose the right company to do the work for you.  How do you know that you have made the right choice?

We were not surprised to read a recent report that suggested as much as 15% of the average British home is unused - which represents around £34,000 of wasted space.  And guess what - most of it is attributed to all that wasted loft space!

In case you didn’t know, September 14th is the first-ever National Quiet Day – an event which aims to raise awareness of the importance of quiet.

In case you missed it, earlier this month (August 2nd) was Playday 2017 – ‘the national day for play’ – an event which both celebrated children’s right to play and highlights the importance of play in the lives of young people.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the summertime is finally here. Just a couple of weeks ago, most of the country basked in soaring temperatures and sunshine – only for that to be pretty rapidly replaced by the more familiar grey skies and driving rain we’re so used to in Britain.
