You will have to make a good choice when it comes to the expert that you are hiring. Ask around for recommendations from those who may have recently got some work done. Do not go by recommendations that are over 3 years old as a lot of things can change for a professional in such a time frame. Give yourself enough of time to convey your thoughts on what you expect and do make sure that you are open to some new ideas that they may have to offer. They are specialists and know what to expect with the various kinds of spaces that they are exposed to.
With so many types of conversions available it is recommended that you call a local company to discuss your options. These options may be affected by local planning constraints or property type.

Don’t have space for an allotment? Herbs are tough wild plants and will thrive easily on your windowsill; they don’t even need full sunlight. Window boxes utilise small spaces really well. Rocket, chervil, parsley and red mustard will grow in shadey areas whereas thyme, sage, rosemary, tarragon and oregano prefer full sunlight. You can grow smaller varieties of fruit and veg in your window too. Plant cherry tomatoes in a grow bag or plant pot with a dish underneath and water regularly. Why not try out chillies and peppers too?

Some other features buyers are seeking: separate showers with steam and/or multiple jets, Newer fixtures, double sink, and separate room for the toilet. Modern lighting, storage/linen space, ceiling vent and heat lamp combination.
