Having that special room which can be left ready for guests needn’t be a luxury. A loft conversion can provide it at relatively little cost compared to a brick built extension. Adding an en-suite would make it self-contained and give your visitor that added sense of well-being.
Most families could do with a little more living space. It might be for teenagers to have somewhere to entertain their friends, the rest of the family to have somewhere quiet away from the teenagers, or just an alternative room to sit and be quiet while others are watching the television.
As well as extra living space it could also provide room for hobbies, such as sewing, painting or displaying a favourite collection.
Viewing/ Relaxation Room
A room at the top could provide the best views of all. So why not create somewhere to sit and watch the world go by? Strategically positioning the windows for the best views will play an important part in the design of the loft conversion.
Working from home is not unusual these days. It could be that you have started your own business and need the extra space to operate from, or that you have the opportunity to bring work home and not face the journey in every day. A loft conversion would supply a spacious working area, with so much attractive office furniture available, going to work could become a real pleasure.
Water Tanks Taking up Space?
If you have a gravity fed system then the cold water storage tanks in the loft will need to be re-located or removed. Our Combi Boiler page explains the benefits of converting your hot water and central heating supply to a combination boiler.
Each project is unique to us, however, most loft conversions have the same order of construction, our next page explains The Stages.
