So, why go for a loft conversion in Central London?

Central London authorities provide several numbers of facilities to the people who live here. Additionally, with the increasing popularity and demand for houses in this area, a loft conversion can increase the value of your house. And you can also rent your house if you don't want to use that spare area.

Converting your attic into the functional area ultimately results in addition to the value of the property. It also saves you from paying a huge amount of money as converting your loft and reshaping it into a bigger and better form is the best way to go about it.

Plus it gives you opportunities to plan your house according to what you want it to be.

If you have a grown-up family or teenagers, surely you are looking for a bigger home right!!! So, consider loft conversion, as it not only helps you in getting the desired space but saves you from the hassle of moving.

Confused which type of conversion you should opt for? Well! Here we are sharing a list of conversions types to choose from

Hip-to-Gable Loft conversion - Hip-to-gable is a perfect option for semi-detached and detached houses. A terraced house generally does not have the required hip, and the roof slope needs to be turned into a vertical line. This conversion is best suitable for chalets and bungalows. If you are looking for a reasonably sizable loft space as standard, we recommend you to go for hip-to-gable conversion. As a major benefit, it often falls under permitted planning permission, so you may not need to take any approval from planning permission. However, typically we seek a Certificate of Lawful Development from the council to avoid any future disputes. It's also significantly more aesthetically pleasing, which means if you are looking for any exterior of your house to give your home a seamless and natural look regardless of its era, a hip-to-gable loft conversion may be the way to go.

Dormer Loft conversion - A dormer loft conversion means building a box-like structure upon the roof that extends out from the slope of the roof. It can vary according to your budget and the size of the attic. L-shaped Dormer conversion can extend across the body of a house, and designed explicitly for Victorian type homes which have a rear extension with a kitchen and bathroom. Plus it also provides you with an extra floor. A dormer loft conversion is more popular among others, as it is very simple and to build and takes less time than others. Significantly, they also add plenty of space. Plus the vertical walls that you can use with a variety of windows that you'd like, using different materials too. It helps in maximizing sunlight. It is also loved because it is suitable for nearly any home with any shape and size of the roof.

Mansard loft conversion -  A mansard loft conversion requires using a traditional sloped roof and then extending one side of the roof to make it vertical at the walls and horizontal on top. However, it required a lot of work and changed the structural integrity of the roof entirely; the end result would be mind blowing. It drastically increases space that is almost the equivalent of adding a full extra floor to the house due to the near verticality of the walls. Can easily perform it on detached, semi-detached, and terraced houses. A mansard loft conversion almost always requires planning permission though it affects both roof shape and structure and thus doesn't fall into the realms of permitted development as some other types of a loft conversion.

Rooflight loft conversions - Also know a Velux loft conversion, convert the current roof space into a loft. Among other types of loft conversion that involve directly changing the structure of a roof, a roof light loft conversion seeks instead to utilize what is already there. This is also one the cheapest types of conversion and does not make any major changes in existing space as they don't need to alter the roof itself structurally. It also gets completed faster than other methods of the loft conversion.

Loft Spaces : 10 Ideas to make a loft Fun & Functional

The word loft generally refers to an apartment with a large adaptable open space that is often a converted light industrial building or commercial space. In yesteryears, lofts did not always get optimised to their complete potential, people usually just saw it as a room to stuff junk or unnecessary stuff in. But nowadays, we see loft houses becoming extremely popular. It may even be called an eco-friendly design as these houses maximize their space by eliminating the majority of interior walls and utilizing an open floor plan.

Most loft spaces do not have four walls, but they do offer valuable square footage that people use in a home. Lofts are usually renovated from attics, Barnes and many other spaces. There is no restriction in the matter of size because no matter how small or big, lofts are usually all about maximizing the space to its fullest potential.

The first step in making the most out of your space is to decide how you want it to function. From there, the planning can start. Listing down several ways to turn this awkward area into a functioning space is the best way to go about it.

Ideas for Converting your Loft Spaces into a fun and interesting space -

When it comes to designing, furniture plays an important role in making your loft a whole lot aesthetically pleasing. Creating a cosy sitting area with your choice of furniture in it can make it a great lounging space. The furniture to be used in your loft should be chosen wisely as it can either make your space look cluttered or fantastic. The furniture and interiors should complement each other and bring the whole space together in a way that makes it a perfect spot for you to come and chill in.

Turn the space into a home library. Choosing the right types of bookshelves is the key to turning your loft into a library. Without the right bookshelves filling your space, you will simply have a seating area in your loft. There are plenty of designs that you can choose from.  Bring in a comfy chair or two and add a blanket to make it even cosier. You can even add a fireplace, turning it into the most  ideal spot to catch up on some reading. Consider installing a multilevel window for a truly inspiring view.

A home office is a great way to utilize loft spaces. These types of spaces are becoming increasingly popular, especially with small businesses and creative companies, giving their employees the freedom to work from home. Bring in a desk for a clean and organized feel to the area. An easy way to keep things out of sight is to hide your desk area in a cabinet, that way it can be closed when it is not being used. Home office colours do not have to be neutral but of the colour that you like. Colour can inject energy into a room, helping you feel motivated and inspired, all the time.

Turn the space into a kid’s study area. When you have children and you want to make sure they have an enjoyable experience while studying, this idea is for you. Natural light from the window will keep them energized, so a kid’s workstation should be placed around the glass. Bring in some indoor plants and you could even add a study bar along a wall with fun barstools. Just because it is a work area does not mean it has to be boring. Have some fun with the items in the work zone, like going for some creative shelving in a bold colourway. You can also lay down artificial grass mats to give the space a sense of the outdoors.

A spot to indulge in creativity, the space can be turned into a craft room where one can get creative with storage by utilizing repurposed armoires or opt for built-in cabinets, installing large vintage sideboards with extra storage will be a great option to fill it with craft supplies. If you’re more of an eco-friendly person, then go grab those old curtain rods because they are a perfect way to display wrapping papers in an unused space between the cabinets. Colours matter the most in a small space. To make the area look clutter-free, choose storage units in neutrals or varying shades of bright, creativity-inducing colours. Throw in some bright lights and you are good to go.

A game room can be a fun use for the space. You could set up a pool table, football, air hockey or any sport of your choice. It is a great way to turn the space into a place where one can unwind. Adding a home projector can make it even more fun. Comfy couches remind you that there is always time to relax between your games of saving the universe. If you want to have that arcade kind of a feeling, you can always add a handful of neon lights. Make sure you add plenty of comfy seats or opt for deep-seated sectional ones to make room for all your friends and family members who come there to have a gala time.

Create a teen lounge where the big kids can hang out with their friends. A teen lounge shouldn’t look like a boring living room, so I suggest you let your teens throw in splashes of colours. Decorate the space with lots of comfortable seating with nice fabrics and some pattern rugs and cushions. Bring in a TV for video games and movies. Artsy paintings on the walls can also be a good idea for the teens with creative sides. A small snack station could be set up with a mini-fridge, microwave, and baskets of snacks.

Bring in some workout equipment and turn this space into a home gym. Once your loft has been converted, you should make sure that the floor, especially, is extremely spacious. We would suggest having a wood flooring over carpet as it is easier and faster to clean. Clever storage always seems to be the highlighting point in almost all the loft conversions. A loft space would also make a great yoga room. This does not just give you flexibility and privacy but also a custom-made space of your own. If you love to dance, you can always turn it into your very own personal dance studio. Put in full length mirrors as mirrors give us the illusion of a larger space. Do not forget to ensure that there is a source of adequate ventilation in the room.

Give the kids a special place by setting up a kid’s room and having plenty of storage for toys. This will help if your house has become a big, disorganised mess with toys scattered all over the place. There are plenty of exciting ideas that you can use to give your kids the playroom that they will adore. Painting the room with neutral colours can be just as boring. Make it colourful but do not forget to ask your kids what colour they prefer so that the space feels more personal to them. Make sure the flooring of this room is easy to clean because kids can be clumsy at times. While letting the lights in, do not forget the natural light too. There should be proper windows to this space making it a healthier place for your kids. Add some practical storages and you are done.

The space can also be turned into a laundry room. This would most likely need an additional plumbing and a vent for the dryer. Make sure the space gets enough air as you would want to hang some clothes as none of us like the idea of mould forming on our clothes. Spill some waterproof paints on the walls for an additional bonus. Build shelves that can be used for keeping everything in place. Create a workstation from furniture that you already have, stash some laundry baskets under it and you are good to go.

It is particularly important to decide on what your needs are for the space in order to make the most of it. Loft conversions are one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to increase your home's size, habitability, and value.
