Having your loft converted is another great choice if you don’t have space or money to have a home extension. Converting your loft is a great way to add another bedroom or two depending on the space and access to your loft. They are also a great space to have a playroom or home cinema, or maybe you just want a nicer space to store your belongings.
There are many things you can do to convert your loft into a habitable room and there are many variables that will determine how you can convert your loft. The roof height and structure is a big thing but other obstacles such as water tanks or chimney breasts should be considered too.
For a loft conversion to be classed as a functioning room, these are the changes/ improvements that you will likely need;
A permanent and stable staircase, not a ladder
Electrics, lighting and heating
The room needs to adhere to fire safety regulations, such as fire doors and smoke alarms.
Luckily we can do all this for you, and help with the rules and regulations.
A great way to add head height to the loft is with raised windows, this is a small change but can make a big difference in how functional and comfortable the room is.
Just like other extensions or conversions, this is a great way to make your home more saleable and increase your profits. Even if you're not looking to sell anytime soon, having the ease of mind that you're home has a better chance of selling is priceless.
