Whether your family is growing, renting out a room in your property, or simply want a new study or office, a loft conversion is an ideal solution to maximise space in your house. This is a cost-effective alternative to moving and will increase the value of your property when you decide to sell in the future. No matter the project size, we will build you a loft that reflects your style and meets your lifestyle’s needs.
A loft conversion may increase the value and usable area of your home. However, storage is usually an important element that is overlooked in this case. Fitted furniture may be a terrific option for traditional or modern loft conversions. But what advantages may fitted furniture bring to your loft space?
When put in a loft conversion, fitted furniture offers several advantages and benefits. These advantages include:
• increasing storage capacity
• making more room on the floor
• using unconventional perspectives
For practical reasons, any location might profit considerably from the addition of storage space. Not only does dedicated storage keep your loft orderly, neat, and clean, but fitted furniture blends this storage into functional spaces to maximize the layout's value.
A dormer loft conversion is an addition to an existing roof that extends vertically from a sloping roof, adding floor space and headroom to the building. A dormer has straight up walls and a parallel ceiling on the inside. It is the most typical sort of loft conversion since flat roof dormers often offer the biggest amount of extra space and useful areas for the layout's maximum value.
Dormer conversions with a pitched roof are ideal for big footprints or steeply pitched roofs. If you reside in a conservation district, they may be required rather than complete back dormers. A pitched roof dormer is an eye-catching feature, and depending on the size of your house, you might add several pitched roof dormers. Dormers on the front of a house would require planning approval, however, they may usually be erected in the back under allowed development.
Rooflight loft conversions are also known as Velux Loft Conversions. The name comes from Velux, the world's top maker of roof windows.
Because the Velux windows are fitted flush to the existing roof line, the roof line remains unaffected in this sort of installation. A Velux loft conversion is ideal for lofts with plenty of headroom or when space is limited due to planning limitations.
The L-shaped dormer loft conversion is also quite popular and is frequently regarded as the greatest solution to maximize space in a mid-terrace period building. An L-shaped conversion usually allows for the addition of two bedrooms and a bathroom / en-suite.
Hip to Gable loft conversions offers a significant amount of headroom as well as usable floor area for a loft. The roof must be stripped down to the tops of the hip ends, the flank wall erected into a gable, and the ridge extended to meet the gable. This sort of modification necessitates the reconstruction of a portion of the front roof.
To the rear of the home is a mansard loft conversion named after the 17th-century French architect Francois Mansard. This form of conversion features a flat roof and a rear wall that slopes inwards at a 72-degree inclination. Small dormers are commonly used to house windows. Because of the significant alterations to the roof shape and structure, mansard loft conversions usually need planning clearance.
Loft conversions may not necessarily require planning approval; in many circumstances, the construction falls under Permitted Development (PD) rules.
However, your design must comply with a number of requirements (opens in new tab), the most important of which are:
The property must not have previously used its Permitted Development rights to add a floor.
It must not add more than 40 cubic meters of volume to the existing roof space for terraced dwellings or 50 cubic meters for all others.
Under PD rights, a loft conversion should not reach the height of the existing roof.
It also cannot extend beyond the present roof slope on the main elevation of the home (where it fronts onto a highway).
Under Permitted Development, verandas and balconies with elevated platforms are not permitted, although Juliet balconies are.
If the work does not come under Permitted Development, as is frequently the case with mansard loft conversions, you will need to apply for planning approval.
Loft conversions are also not permitted in some regions, such as conservation areas and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You would need to apply for planning permission in these cases.
Permitted Development for loft conversions may have been removed in some places, so always check before starting a conversion project.

The minimum height required for a Loft Conversion is 2.2m (from the floor to the highest point in your loft). If you do not have the required height, your ceilings can be lowered on your first floor.
