Creating more space in your loft is a great way to make the most of your space in a Fitzrovia home. The housing market has been very volatile since the recession hit, with many people having to move house due to the drop in house prices and income. However, there are still people who want to stay in their current home, so there are plenty of options for loft conversions in the capital.
If you have a loft that is unusable, you can open up a portion of it to make it bigger and more comfortable. The main issue with loft conversions is the height of the ceiling. You don't want to have to spend all your time banging your head or crouching to reach the light switches or the bed. Instead, you can use a mezzanine level as an additional sleeping area or a child's playroom.
The process of converting a loft is far less disruptive than selling a house in Fitzrovia. In fact, you may be able to sell your home sooner if you've taken the time to prepare it. Unlike moving house, a loft conversion can also be less disruptive than moving house. A typical loft conversion project takes around two weeks and involves minimal disruption. However, the process of getting the work done can be difficult.
To make the loft more usable, you should consider a few things. If you have a low ceiling, you can reduce the height of the ceiling so that it doesn't interfere with the height of the room below it. This solution is usually expensive and only works if the building is structurally sound. Adding a new floor in the loft can increase the size of the room.

The most common loft conversions are done on these types of houses across London. These houses mostly have high ceilings and large rooms and a conversion works best when the design retains the natural character of the building.
If you live in an end of terraced or semi-detached house, your property is ideal for a loft conversion. There are two main types of loft conversion that are suitable for semi-detached and end of terrace homes: hip to gable loft conversions and dormer loft conversions.
Many properties in the UK were build in the 1920s or 1930s (pre-war period). Such houses are great for loft conversions, you can easily add either a dormer loft conversion, a hip to gable loft conversion or a Velux loft conversion. The type we build will depend on the structure of your home and roof we can guide you on the best approach.
If you happen to live in a conservation area, the local council may not permit you to have a rear dormer, but they might let you have a mansard or a combination of Velux roof windows and small dormers. Loft conversions in flats and Maisonettes are the ultimate way of gaining that precious extra space.
