Five main types of Loft conversions in Kingston

1. Loft conversions called the roof light or Velux is the cheapest type as it needs the smallest amount of work in the structure of the existing space. The only alteration made is the addition of windows as the existing roof structure remains intact. See image below that shows an example of a completed velux loft conversion. 

2. The most popular type is the loft conversion called dormer that offers double advantages: easy way to add more light and achieve a full headroom by increasing the roof space. To have a bigger flat-roofed ‘box’ dormer, change the roof structure at the sides or back of the house. Dormers are ideal for terraced properties and bungalows. (like below) 

3. Usually found on the side of either end-terrace or semi-detached houses is the loft conversion called hip-to-gable. Removing the hipped (or sloping) side of the roof, a new vertical gable is formed when the end wall is built up straight.

4. A new box extension is included in this gable-to-gable loft conversion that spans the space in-between each gable end. To act like bookends, you need to lengthen the height of the gable end walls.

5. If you need extra volume, Mansard loft conversion is your type. The process is quite complication as the sides are very steep and sloping while over the top flat roof is placed.

 

There are versatile ways to utilize your converted loft:

Create your own stylish loft bathroom.

Bulky beams with awkward dimensions have very limiting factor but they be used to create a bathroom in an available loft space. The shower might require an amount of headroom and an easy entry, a bath can be constructed under a low ceiling. 

Your very own home office

If you work from home, then a home office might be the best use for your converted loft. To maximize productivity and quality of life, your home office must have lots of natural light. (see image below) Refrain from using those black-out blinds and heavy dark solid drapes. Instead, opt for pale blinds as pink, light blue and neutral shades that allow entry of natural light in but at the same time minimize the glare. Light is necessary during the summer months, as well as, during the winter months when cold days are shorter.

Loft conversion for kids

Your kids will laud you for giving them the loft as their very own space with no mommy watching their activities. They can even decorate the room themselves, but it must be cozy with lots of light and air. Children’s room must be filled with light and bright colors. Kids must be encouraged to express their personality using colors, decors soft furnishings and other accessories.

Your loft conversion dressing room

Now you have your own dressing room after you made use of the space in the eaves with built in storage that helps to overcome the limitations of an awkward sloping roof. The large skylight floods the space with natural light, while the proper position of your floorboards will give you the appearance of a longer space. How about tacking a wardrobe onto the side of a large master bedroom?

Your walk – in closet

Movie stars are proud of their walk-in closet that they proudly show off in various tv shows. Why not create one for you? Opt for an open-type wardrobe or a clothes rack to maximize the space you want. You can use the rack to show your collection of bags, shoes and other items of interest.

Space for fitting and storage

If you are looking for a space to store useful articles safely, the loft can provide ample of space for this. Just be sure to make the most of space that might otherwise have been wasted by proper placement of those items.
