Loft conversions have been a popular way of adding additional living space to homes for many years, though they have become increasingly popular over recent times. Moving to a bigger house has become increasingly expensive, often prohibitively so, though modern living means that many of us urgently need more space
This is particularly the case with families where children tend to live at home well past their teens and often into their thirties before they find a place of their own. Often the older generation also needs to live in the family home.
More people are now working from home, either because they are starting up and running their own business or simply home working for an employer. The priority is a home office so that they can work away from the usual distractions of family life Other reasons for needing more space might be for a guest bedroom and ensuite; a general family room; or just a den for dad.
Undertaking a loft conversion is big project. The first stage is to check whether it is feasible in your property, for instance is there enough space and adequate headroom (the minimum is 2.1 metres)? Next you will need to consider the type of loft conversion you need, generally there is a wealth of options you can choose from. You might need planning permission, though for many conversions this isn’t required.
