Loft conversion ideas
Basic roof light conversion
This kind is typically chosen when homeowners have financial constraints. Sometimes it’s due to planning permission, where creating a dormer style isn’t possible. It’s wise to consider leaving any available space and making an open plan room. Additionally, the only investment necessary is in roof lights, insulation and stairs. Keep in mind this style generally applies for narrow loft spaces.
Additionally, you may wish to install a bathroom in your loft. What is especially popular for conversions is this private space for bathing. Also, it is easy to achieve if you have enough space. If you choose this, take advantage of the low level space for storage.
Part width dormer
When planning permission is an issue for full width dormers, this type is opted for. Creating the dormer around a window can make more loft space. Furthermore, full height space can be achieved across the window length.
Install a mezzanine floor
This is perfect for bringing light into different areas and opening up ceiling space. However, you must ensure you have enough ceiling height. If there are eaves available and your loft space is tall, the work will be simpler. Conversely, the project will be more complicated and expensive if the roof needs opening up. Remember to consult your local authority for building regulations before starting work.
