Choosing the right sort of conversion to improve your London home is an important part of renovations/developments, and one of the most popular choices is the Loft Conversion. This is a broad brush with which to paint a decision as important as this, but it’s a good starting point.
What is a Loft Conversion?
With these renovations, the clue is in the name. Many old buildings have a loft – or attic – that is effectively just wasted space for most people. It’s not until you decide that you need an extra room but don’t want to build into the back yard that the loft comes into its own.
A Loft Conversion turns what was once empty or storage space in your roof into a defining feature of the home – be it a bedroom, office, bathroom or anything else.
So what are my options?
As with so many extensions, the beauty is that your imagination can run free when it comes to what you’d like us to turn your loft into. By far the most popular that we work with people on is for an extra bedroom, when the family gets a bit big or guests never have anywhere to stay.
However, you could also turn it into the home office you’ve always wanted, to convince your boss to let you work from home a few days a week! Or you could turn it into the family library – a lovely, peaceful area out of the way of the rest of the house to tune out and read a book.
How do I go about it?
Well, first things first – do you have a loft? This is an important part of all loft conversions, unsurprisingly. But, if you’re not fortunate enough to have space sitting up there already, you can always talk to us about options available for extensions.
If you have a loft, have a think about how to make it of most use to your family – both now and into the future. Plan ahead. Then get in touch with us at Extend A Space and we can come down and discuss the best plan of action, give you a quote, and get the ball rolling on what is always an extremely exciting adventure!
