If you’ve been dreaming of more space in your home but don’t know where it will come from, look up! Lofts and attics can be an alluring aspect when considering a home’s features, but often they end up underutilised, and full of junk.
Refresh can help you convert these wasted areas into comfortable and functional spaces that enhance your home and increase its property value. To discuss your options with one of our local Geelong Renovation Consultants, just get in touch!
At Refresh, we put the homeowner’s experience first by providing comprehensive support at every stage of our 5-step renovation process - the initial consultation, concept and feasibility, cost estimate and working drawings, construction, and project delivery.
Our Renovation Consultants are behind every Refresh project and will be your single point of contact throughout your attic or loft conversion. Professional project management is an integral part of any renovation, but our Renovation Consultants go above and beyond to handle everything, from giving you advice and recommendations during the design process to arranging reliable contractors and sourcing premium materials for the building phase.
The trust you’ll have in your Renovation Consultant is what sets Refresh apart. We want to change the way the world renovates by providing every homeowner with an enjoyable process, outstanding customer support, and the relief of having their renovation delivered on time and within budget.
Attics and loft spaces often have an A-frame or some degree of pitch and in older homes, you may come across brick walls. Instead of covering up or trying to hide these architectural quirks, embrace the original features and use them as anchors for the design. Timber and steel support beams lend themselves effortlessly to industrial and rustic styles but can easily be painted or stained to blend with any interior. Exposed elements such as brick or concrete can be modernised or enhanced to bring character into the space.

The cost of an attic or loft conversion in Geelong varies dramatically, depending on the structural changes, quality of finishing materials, and general project scope. A basic conversion with minimal work could be completed for $10,000* whereas a spacious luxury conversion could cost you upwards of $200,000*. Here’s a real-life example of a Refresh attic conversion; let’s see was achieved for about $120,000*.
In this Refresh project, an unused attic space was converted into a yoga room and the work included:
- Window removal and skylight installation
- Stylish and supportive exposed iron structuring
- Track lighting
- Flooring removal and plush carpet installation
- Chimney replacement
- Roof repainting
*Costs are rough estimates and are subject to change. For a fixed-quote accurate to your specific project, please consult your local Refresh Renovation Consultant.
According to the Geelong city council, “building permits are required for almost all new buildings, alterations, demolition, and change of use” so it’s highly likely that your attic or loft conversion will need approval. But not to worry, your Renovation Consultant will arrange for any applications and permitting to be taken care of prior to building commencement.
