Bungalow loft conversions are becoming increasingly popular due to their ease of extension and beautiful finish. Given how simple it is to extend the home upstairs, adding an additional bedroom, living area, bathroom, or office space to your bungalow in Great Notley has never been easier. Most have plenty of headroom, making it simple to install stairs and roof windows.
Adding a loft conversion to a bungalow may provide additional room as well as increased home value. Depending on your demands, the loft conversion can be utilized to add a full additional level to the bungalow, which can be used for a variety of functions in the home.
A bungalow's loft conversion area may be used in a variety of ways. Many homeowners want to add another bedroom in the loft conversion since the space on the highest floor makes sense and an extra bedroom may add a significant amount of value to the house. However, when it comes to determining how to use the space, the possibilities are limitless.
Loft conversions have lately become popular home office spaces, but they might also be utilized as an additional living area in your house, or for leisure purposes, such as a movie room or games room. Bathrooms may also be added to loft conversions, providing you the choice of using the space as an extra bathroom in your house or even as the primary bathroom, allowing you to make better use of the lower floor area. You might also utilize it as a more comfortable storage space, or perhaps a walk-in closet.
Whether or not you require planning permission for your loft conversion, you must still adhere to the necessary construction requirements listed on the Government website, and get building control approval through the planning portal, or ePlanning website. In UK, you must acquire building rules permission from your local council.
Building codes are vital because they guarantee that any loft conversion is physically sound and stable, that stairs are properly placed, and that it is safe to escape during a fire. What loft conversion rules you must be aware of are determined on the sort of extension you are planning:
If your loft conversion will be usable, you'll need to install a permanent staircase that can also serve as a fire escape. Your staircase should have 2m of headroom in the center (1.9m for pitched roofs) and a maximum pitch of 42°.
If there is insufficient room, a smaller, space-saving staircase may be installed, however, retractable ladders are not often allowed. Loft ladders should only be used to gain access to the roof for storage or to do repairs. Most space-saving staircases have a smaller footprint because they are steeper than standard stairs, but each step should not be taller than 220mm to comply with building rules.
Another alternative for reducing space is to create a spiral staircase, which has its own set of restrictions and regulations. All spiral staircases should adhere to the '100mm sphere rule,' which states that no gaps should exceed 99mm. This includes the space between the treads and the balustrade. You'll also need to conform to various specifications depending on how many rooms your loft conversion will have.220mm tall to meet building requirements.
If you fail to comply with construction standards and planning permit restrictions, you will be obliged to undo the work and may face a substantial punishment. This may be time-consuming and expensive, so it's always a good idea to obtain the necessary planning approval.
The worth of your loft conversion will be determined by a variety of criteria, including the size, kind, and quality of the loft conversion, as well as what the space may be used for. According to a Nationwide analysis of houses in the UK, installing a loft conversion with an additional bedroom and en-suite bathroom may improve the value of a property by 21%. If you live in London, a loft conversion with an additional bathroom and bedroom may improve the value of your home by nearly a quarter, making it worthwhile to invest in if you intend to sell your home for a profit in the future.
Bungalows are notorious for having only one level, but there is no reason why this cannot be changed with a loft conversion. A loft conversion may boost the value of your house while also adding more room.
