Loft Conversions: Making the Most of your Home

Loft Conversion Study

For many people, the loft is simply that empty space at the top of the house used to store old boxes or hide away old school books, CDs, childhood toy and of course Christmas decorations for another year. However, with living space increasingly at a premium, the loft could prove to be much more than a dumping ground.

Loft conversions can transform what was once a dark and empty void into a luxury living space. Regardless of the size of your attic, a loft conversion can have it looking spacious. For tight lofts, a dormer extension can add the necessary space, while larger areas can benefit from a roof light conversion. When you consider the options that a converted loft can give – especially to a family – you realise just how wasted the space is in its current un-converted state.

Think about living as a family of four in a small three bedroom property. What happens when you are expecting baby number three? Sure, when the kids are young sharing a bedroom will not be a problem; the newest addition to the family can take bedroom number three. But as any parent with older children will know – kids sharing a room is a disaster! As kids grow up they begin to value privacy and have a need for their own space. A loft conversion can give this much needed extra bedroom. And it doesn’t have to be for the kids; include an ensuite and make it the master bedroom, or if you are a small family and have regular guests, a converted loft can serve as the perfect guest room.

A loft doesn’t have to be a bedroom; it can be anything you need it to be. Perhaps you are starting a business working from home and need some office space, or maybe just a place to study in peace. A small attic could also be the ideal location for an extra bathroom. A large family fighting over one bathroom is never a good thing!

Whatever your space problems, a loft conversion can be the perfect, cost-effective solution. Please have a look at our loft conversion gallery for some inspiration as to how you may wish to covert your loft
