When you bought your first house and probably moved in alone or as a couple, chances are you didn't know what to do with all the space there was. Perhaps you came from a small flat or you still lived at home with your parents where the house was cosily filled with more than two people. Such a whole house for you alone or together with your loved one might have taken some getting used to. What is also quite understandable is that you have first converted all the rooms where you live the most. Often, the attic is forgotten and used to store other, seldom-used items. For whatever reason, you've now decided that it's time to give the attic some attention. Renovate the attic!

Installing a partition wall
One of the possibilities that we offer is placing a partition wall. This allows you to convert the attic into 2 bedrooms for example. The rooms can of course also be used for other purposes.
The most commonly used material for such a partition wall is plasterboard, but other materials are also available. Just as you wish. In general, plasterboard is an excellent material for a partition wall. This is also the cheapest way of creating a partition. It is also possible to have extra wood added to the plasterboard. These are called OSB plates. Another option is a metal stud wall. Here plasterboard is also used but is mounted on a metal frame. A final option is aerated concrete blocks. However, the space must allow for this. In addition, this is an expensive option. On the other hand, it is more soundproof. A professional can often build such a partition in one day. Ideal when you need an extra room in the house quickly.
The price of a partition depends on the number of square metres and the type of material.
In general, you can expect to pay between €50 and €80 per square metre. On average you will then spend between €600 and €1000. The wall can also be plastered. The costs for placing a partition wall vary from €13,- to €25,- euro per square meter.
