Total cost

According to HomeAdvisor.com, the average national cost for attic renovations is $49,438. Although it’s a significant investment, it not only increases your overall living space—but also adds value for future buyers. U.S. News & World Report cites that attic conversions rank #3 on their list of home renovations that bring the greatest return on investment, returning a hefty 84.3% of the total amount spent.

Individual improvements

Don’t forget…

  • Make sure the attic can support the added weight—consult with a structural engineer
  • New safety codes—make sure you adhere to these to pass inspection
  • Soundproofing may be important—so you don’t constantly hear noise down below
  • Sloped roofs can be a design challenge—be prepared to get creative!
