Depending on the roof structure and planning constraints, a loft conversion is one of the most straightforward ways of getting extra space. Almost all houses can benefit from this extension with a bit of basic planning
Many people come to a point in their life where their family is expanding or sometimes they simply need more space. Loft conversions are one of the most popular options when people are considering looking at increasing the floor area within their home.
Utilising loft space is a great way to add additional bedrooms and bathrooms. Particularly in urban environments where space is at a premium. A well designed loft conversion can add not just extra bedrooms, but also considerable value to your home. In most cases loft conversions or loft extensions can now be built under ‘Permitted Development’ and as such planning permission is not required.
The weather protection and floor are apparently already in place and it may be possible to stand up in the loft and take a look around at what seems to be a huge area in which could be potential living space.
Just when looking at the floor area in the loft, it’s easy to see its potential. Up to 30% of the floor area of the whole house may be gained though a loft conversion.
Having a loft conversion has some huge benefits over building a home extension. If you’re looking to add extra floor area, in a less disruptive manor, a loft conversion is for you. Often Loft conversions are much cheaper than adding a home extension, and much quicker.
If you’re lucky, in some cases you may only need a staircase and a little bit of decorating to access the potential. But in the real world, it’s never that straight
