How to create your dream loft space

How to create your dream loft space

When it comes to loft conversions, our team has a wealth of experience with acquiring planning permission, designing and constructing them. We take the time to get to know our customers and really understand their design to ensure that it not only meets but exceeds their expectations.

A loft conversion is an excellent extension for those looking to add another bedroom, office, or even bathroom to their property. In this blog, we will be giving some of our top tips on how to make the most of the space available to you with your loft conversion and some tips on the planning permission that you might need to acquire.


Increase the value of your home

A loft conversion can add tremendously to the value of your home, as much as 10 or even 20 percent.


Planning Permission 

One of the first questions that we are often asked by our customers that are enquiring into adding an extension on their property is about the planning permission that they will need. Most properties won’t need planning permission, if you’re planning a development that is up to 40 cubic meters in a terraced house or 50 cubic meters in a detached or semi-detached house then it’s permitted.

If your extension protrudes this then you will need to seek planning permission.


Velux loft conversions

If you don’t want to alter the look of your home from the outside, then a Velux loft conversion is for you. A Velux loft conversion can be the cheapest solution and will not alter the appearance of the property by the exterior too much.


Dormer loft conversions

If you would like more headspace in your loft conversion, then we highly recommend getting a dormer loft conversion as they are taller. These loft conversions are also easier to implement around a staircase.
