Hampton is also called London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, England, and I think this long name is due to its location. It lies west of Kingston & Hampton Wick and its two sides are adjacent to Bushy Park. With water stripes in the riverside, Public Heated Open-Air Pool in Hampton served as the people’s swimming pools in Greater London. The residential islands above Molesey Lock boost of grand or decorative buildings such as the Astoria Houseboat Recording Studio, the Garrick's House; the Temple to Shakespeare; the Astoria Houseboat recording studio; and more. You can go to the main park of Molesey and Thames Path National Trail.by crossing the Thames via the Hampton Ferry.
The north of the district of Hampton has terraced homes and the south district are filled with semi-detached homes. Many residents at the western edge of London commute to adjacent boroughs or to Central London as many are employees in various schools & educational agencies, hospitals & health centers, social services, retail businesses, transport and food services because transport is easy.
Hamptons homes feature styles from several periods like period cottage to Georgian houses with Victorian terrace. Before the 20th century, there are several home types, such as the contemporary, detached, flats, and semi-detached. If you pass by Taggs Island of Thames and near to Hampton, you will be amazed to see various types of houseboats. The dilapidates & ramshackle boats are owned by the commoners and the glamorous & stately owned by royalties.

2. Family bathroom
Adding an extra bathroom, whether it’s an ensuite or one for the whole family to use, is one of the most popular choices for a loft conversion. However, one great challenge in planning a bathroom is what to do with unconventional lift.

I always recommend these four common styles available and once we view your property, we can advise you on the best design to suit your home. This will be determined by several different criteria, from available space, to property size and your available budget.
Four styles are:
1.Dormer loft conversion – A vertical wall placed at the sloping roof’s bottom is used in this type of loft conversion. A flat roof is made to meet the vertical wall to provide more space in the loft’s extension. As one of the most popular type, Flat Dormer is also one of the most cost effective. A large amount of internal space is provided in comparison with most of the other style. There is no planning permission needed.
2. Hip to gable loft conversion – This type expands a relatively small space into the hipped roof so that changes are made. The flat gable makes the sloping or ‘hipped’ side of a roof. It is best to inquire about planning permission. You can use any extra space as home office, game room or for any other purpose. This type is ideal for detached, semi-detached, chalet and bungalow properties.
3. Mansard loft conversion – Usually constructed at the rear, Mansard is usually constructed at the back part of your property, its flat roof and a back-wall slope inward at 72 degrees. This is the more expensive loft type since it involves major changes to the structure of the property and requires well as more construction work. These are like the terraced housings particularly common in city areas. Windows used the dormer type. Inquire about planning permission.
4. Velox loft conversion -Velux loft conversion can be finished within 6 to 8 weeks if the amount of the required construction is simple and not complicated. However, Velux loft conversions seems to be the easiest to build and the project can be completed within 4 weeks.
1. For more extra space

However, you have failed to notice that there is a space in your loft that can be used wisely. Yes, you can convert this extra space to use in terms of your need.
2. Property value increased
Ask any property expert how loft conversion increases your investments. The increase in your property value is not only 5% or 10% but that your property value will go up by 20% after loft conversions. An these days, property rates never decreased but always escalate year by year.
3. Have that extra storage area
Loft extension to have more space to store needed items from the different house corner. When unimportant items have space in your loft, then it will be easy for you to walk around secluded area in your house without any furniture or box blocking your way.
4. Increased investment plus more space
Loft conversion is like hitting two birds with one stone. If you dream of a master suite or add a guest bedroom or even an entertainment area, a loft conversion is the easiest option to do it and you are gaining more as you are adding value to your property too.
