What Is a Loft Conversion?

A loft conversion transforms underutilised loft or attic space in the home to create a functional living space by converting the area into something that is fully habitable. Loft conversions can be used in a variety of ways, from practicals like additional bedroom or office space, or something more luxurious like a home gym or games/movie room.

The conversion process involves structural work – adding support beams or strengthening the floor – and installing necessary insulation, plumbing, and electrical work. It may also be necessary to add a staircase or some other access method, and even add a skylight to allow natural light into the space.

Types of Loft Conversions in London

The types of loft conversions that can be built on your property depend on your roof structure and how much additional living space you want. We offer consultations for a range of loft conversion options, including:

Skylight Conversion

The process of incorporating skylights into an existing space. This is often done when a roof interior already has the space required to be habitable, but a homeowner wants to add a source of natural lighting - and skylights are ideal as they can be integrated into an existing roof slope.

Dormer Conversion

A dormer loft conversion is a structural extension that will protrude from the slope of a roof, and they often include windows to bring in natural light and ventilation. The choice of dormer style depends on factors like the existing roof design, the available space, and the desired aesthetic. For more information on dormer conversion pros and cons, check out our blog!

Two Window Dormer

Two window dormer conversions are well-suited for creating larger rooms, such as bedrooms, home offices, or playrooms, within the loft area. The additional floor space gained from the dormer extension can significantly enhance the functionality and livability of the upper floor of the house.

Hip to Gable

Hip to gable conversions are especially valuable when the original hipped roof restricts the potential for loft conversions due to limited space or headroom. They provide a way to maximise the usable area of a property without significantly altering its footprint.

Hip to Gable & Rear Dormer

A hip to gable and rear dormer is a combination of two types of loft conversions often used to maximise the usable space within a roof area. This approach is popular when dealing with properties that have a hipped roof design, which features sloping sides that meet at a ridge in the middle.

Mansard Conversion

Named after the 17th-century French architect François Mansart, who popularised this architectural style, a mansard conversion typically includes steep slopes on all sides of the roof and creates a distinctive box-like extension on top of the existing structure.

L-Shaped Mansard

Due to the complexity of this type of conversion, it's important to work with experienced professionals, such as architects, builders, and structural engineers, who are knowledgeable about mansard conversions and local construction regulations. This ensures that the project is carried out safely and successfully.

L-Shaped Dormer

L-shaped dormer conversions offer exceptional advantages, especially for properties that boast available space on two sides of the roof and are conducive to this specific layout. This conversion style yields a remarkable expansion of the usable floor area within the loft.

How To Determine Which Type of Loft Conversion is Right For You

If you want to utilise your unused loft space and expand, there are a few options available to you depending on the type of roof you have, and how much existing space you already have available. For hip to gable loft conversions, they are mostly found on semi-detached properties that already have hipped roofs to extend upwards and create a new gable, while a gable loft conversion is performed on a property that already has a gable roof.

Like the hip to gable conversion option, you can also have a hip to dormer and hip to mansard extension applied. These extensions allow for extra space and utilise an existing sloping roof to allow for natural light during window installations.

What To Do With Your Additional Living Space

Whether you want to expand for family purposes, or you simply want extra living space in your home, there are several ways you can use your brand new loft conversion. Depending on the type of loft conversion you choose, you could have up to a whole additional floor in your home to decorate, furnish, and live in. Some of the ways we recommend using your loft conversion include:

Office Space

Having a home office on a floor that is higher up means less distraction during the day. Whether you frequently work from home and require your own quiet space to concentrate, or you want somewhere that offers solitude and space for other activities, adding an office into a loft conversion is an extremely popular option.

Home Gym

Gym equipment can take up a lot of space and cause clutter in other areas of the home, especially when you have different machines and weights you can add in. Skip the hassle and use some of the space in your loft conversion to achieve your fitness goals! A bonus is being able to listen to your workout playlist without disturbing other residents in the home.

Bedroom/Guest Bedroom

A loft conversion has become a popular option for homeowners who don’t want to move out, but require more living space as their family grows. We can say with confidence that kids love the freedom of having their own space on a floor away from their parents bedroom. Don’t have kids? Loft conversions are also a good way to create extra space for guests too!

Hobby Room

Whether you like to unwind with video games, knitting, reading, painting, or any other way, having a dedicated space to enjoy and store hobbies is a must. You don’t have to worry about being in the way or messing up other areas of the home when you can keep yourself entertained away from the rest of the household.

However you choose to use your loft conversion, it’s impossible to deny that the functional space they create leaves the door open to many different options to transform your home however you want.
