Perhaps you’d like to create more space for a growing family, or want your own retreat from the rest of the house? Maybe you’ve started up your own business and need a small office space?
The options to utilise your loft space are pretty much endless. If you’ve got the vision then we can transfer that into a reality. Yes, there are planning rules and building regulations that must be followed, plus numerous practicalities to consider.
For instance, if you want to convert this valuable space into another room yet your attic is not quite high enough for you to stand up in, then you may need to either literally raise the roof, or lower the ceiling height on the floor below.
It could be that you have been dreaming of the perfect master bedroom, complete with en suite, walk in wardrobe and underfloor heating, or a complete self-contained annex, games room, mini cinema, family bathroom, kids hang out, nursery, music studio, gym or yoga room or a mezzanine sleeping area.
Depending on what you have planned to transform your current dusty old attic space will then depend on how you will bring light into your new contemporary haven. Should you go for skylights or roof lights or are you thinking of installing dormer windows? Plus, what type of staircase will be needed?
If you have amazing views surrounding your property then you could opt for either floor to ceiling bi-fold glass doors or a Juliet window/balcony. Imagine if you woke up to stunning views each morning, or that you could work from home in serene surroundings.
Are you working with an awkward shaped space? Attics with lots of different angles, nooks and crannies require careful consideration to what colours you will add at the decoration stage, in order to keep the newly developed space looking sleek, bright, clean and spacious.
If you have lots of head space in your loft then you have the ability to choose clever, feature lighting that will bring the appearance of the new ceiling, or roof apex down to give your new fantastic spacious haven that cosier feel.
However you want your loft conversion, we can give you honest advice and suggestions before setting on a design.
