Tips on what you can do in your Loft Conversion? 

Create an extra luxurious bathroom.

Do you have to wait in line outside the bathroom on busy mornings, or do you want to bring the spa experience home with you? Converting your attic into an extra bathroom can help you relax in the evenings and make your mornings a little less chaotic. When it comes to converting your loft into a bathroom, you have complete freedom to build it whatever you want - whether it's a wet room, an attic room with a jacuzzi bath, or simply an extra bathroom. With ambient lighting, underfloor heating, and a large tub, you can change your attic area into a spa-inspired bathroom.

Be open to Natural light. 

If you live in a city, your views may be limited by high-rise buildings, offices, and roadways, or you may struggle to get enough natural light into your home. Many city homes are devoid of a pleasant outlook, where a loft conversion can help. Loft conversions have expansive windows and skylights higher than other rooms in your home, giving you a superior outlook and the ideal spot for stargazing.

Rooflights are an excellent method to get natural light into your loft. In reality, because loft conversions have wide windows, they get plenty of natural light during the day. As a result, you'll save money on your energy bills while also letting in more natural light.

Allow the structure to speak for itself.

The ability to show off the structure of your home is one of the most alluring elements of a loft conversion. A loft conversion is an ideal way to add a room to your home that highlights the structure and history of your home.

Leave the beams visible if your attic has them. Displaying the original structure of your property will give the room charm and show the building's identity.

Include a comfortable guest room.

Do you run out of room when you have visitors, or do you wish you had an extra room to entertain family and friends in? Your loft is the ideal location for creating a warm, inviting bedroom for your visitors. There are many various ways to turn your attic space into a guest bedroom, from the large, bright windows to the snug sensation of being hidden away beneath the eaves. Plus, with an extra bedroom, you'll be able to attract more potential purchasers if you decide to sell your home in the future.

Make use of your loft for your interests.

It's incredible to have a personal, private room to immerse ourselves in our hobbies. Whether you enjoy sketching, yoga daily, or creative writing, why not reward yourself to a space where you may indulge in your interests? If you find yourself drawing or painting in the living room, writing at the kitchen table, or stretching on your yoga mat in your bedroom, your loft could be the ideal place for you to pursue your interests.

There are many ways to use your loft for your hobbies, whether as an artist's studio, a tiny yoga and meditation space, or a home office with a desk and computer.

Storage is built-in.

Converting your loft is ideal for getting rid of any belongings accumulated in your attic. However, you'll almost certainly have some items left over later, and you'll need somewhere to store them. Fortunately, there are various methods to include clever storage into your loft conversion. Indeed, you may be stumped about what to do with the awkward low area between the roof's slope and the floor. Many storage alternatives are available to help you make the most of this area and hide items you want to keep.

Set up a loft bar.

Your loft may be transformed into pretty much anything you choose. A home bar could be the ideal loft conversion concept for you if you enjoy entertaining in your own home. Even the tiniest of loft spaces may be converted into cozy bar rooms with the addition of a bar. After a hard day at work or after the kids have gone to bed, a home bar is an ideal location to unwind. You can add plush sofas, pillows, and rugs to your home bar or stick to the classics with bar stools and a little dartboard.

Victorian and Edwardian Houses

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.

End of Terraced and Semi Detached Houses

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.

1920s and 1930s Houses

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.

Flats, Maisonettes and Conservation Areas

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.
