The Main Types of Loft Conversions in Chiswick

1. Dormer loft conversion has many styles and is categorized as, double, full, L-shaped, rear, and single dormer loft conversions. Compared to other types, the dormer has vertical walls and horizontal ceilings. They could be shaped as flat, hipped, or L-shaped.

2. Mansard loft conversion is best for urban detached homes. Its sides has an inward slope at approx. 70–72 degrees.This creates the most space in the Loft of all conversions.

3. Hip to Gable loft conversion is most suitable for detached or semi-detached homes. The three slanting sides to the roof is then extended to the outside wall where the gable end is built up. The front slop builds up the conversion following completion of rear dormer and Velux windows so there is an extension on both sloping sides.

4. One great choice is a Velux loft conversion that is available if conversion is a smaller loft. You achieve keeping the original style of the roof by installing the Velux windows and roof lights.

Choosing your window styles           

Windows play an important role in every loft conversion for they provide the natural light to the loft and they greatly affect the physical appearance from the interior and exterior side. 

Simple roof lights, or velux windows, are set up into the sloping roof. Made from traditional cast iron, conservation roof lights are more expensive but they are fine options for period buildings.

Also called as vertical windows, dormer windows are placed in the roof and are projected upwards. By providing a standing space within the sloping roof, they can create extra space in the conversion.

Standard windows like the gable-end windows are fitted at the building’s side into the vertical walls. Their main function is to provide added light into the conversion.

Your chosen styles of window type will depend on several considerations as looking from the view of your home, the property style and the chosen type of your loft conversion.

Loft Conversion Ideas - Clever Solutions for Your Chiswick Home

After extensive research by our expert designers we found these three loft conversion ideas that are currently a big trend in the market -

1.         EMBRACE ITS PROPORTIONS THROUGH COLORS -

If your plans regarding the loft conversion are not about bigger changes, or you're settling on two or three little rooms instead of one huge one, exploit the normally comfortable feel offered by little spaces.

While settling on a color shaded plan – you truly can't beat white. It has the ability to cause loft rooms to feel bigger and lighter. Your objective should be to keep it from feeling excessively clinical.

Attempt to combine lighter hues with warm woods and the incidental delicate outfitting in a more profound shade to guarantee the room feels comfortable and inviting.

2.         PLAN THE INTERIOR THROUGH SUBTLE FURNITURE -

You have to consider the design of your finished loft conversion well before you start work. This implies choosing where you will situate household items, the bathroom, and most importantly the furniture.

If you are planning to have an en suite, consider the roof height in the space and organize pieces of furniture like cupboard and sofa that are proportionate to the room size.

 

3.         Install windows that gives maximum sunlight -

You need to consider the size and position of your Loft windows, as this is an important aspect within the loft conversion plan. The location of the windows will frequently be decided by the state of the rooftop; for instance, a longer bedroom room will profit by windows divided equitably along its length, while a shorter bedroom will need one large window.
