Many people decide on a loft extension to create a new bedroom space. Whether that means a new master bedroom or changing your loft into a nursery is up to you. However, bedrooms are simply one of the ways that we’ve seen loft extensions used.
Now, more than ever, people are working from home, which is why a loft conversion can be the perfect home office space. Or, for those who are looking for a bit more room in a bungalow or terraced house, a loft extension can be a great new living space or even a gym.

In most cases, a loft conversion can be considered permitted development. However, in scenarios where the extension raises the highest point of the roof, or if there are dormer windows, you may need to get planning permission.
Certain local authorities have requirements about the degree, angle and style of dormer windows installed. We’ll make sure that we have down the specifics for loft extensions in your area when we talk to you. That way, your dormer windows are picture perfect.
Consider the nature of the room that you want for your loft conversion. Planning the layout in the design stage of your extension will significantly help. Choosing where the furniture, bathroom, and built in storage are placed will make it easier for us to build quickly and efficiently.
Look at your furniture or the dimensions of the furniture you’re looking to buy for your new loft conversion. That way, we can compare floor layout and clearance to ensure that your new design is attractive and appropriately utilises the new space.

In our experience, it depends on your needs. Generally speaking, most people use a home extension for living space and a loft conversion for bedroom space. While adding more bedroom space can significantly improve the value of your home, it may depend on your area. Look at local authority guidelines, and talk with an estate agent or surveyor to assess your home’s current worth and compare the potential worth with an extension or loft conversion.
