Loft conversion

Utilise wasted space with a loft conversion

What would you do with an extra room in your home? If you have a growing family you could need the extra space with loft conversion ideas such as a bedroom, a playroom or perhaps even a study to work from.

In most homes the loft is wasted space, filled with unpacked boxes and Christmas decorations. Put this room to good use and covert the darkness into a light open area to enjoy.

Converting your loft will add value to your home too and as long as everything complies with Building Regulations you’ll have extra appeal that will be of interest to future potential buyers.

Can my loft be converted?

As long as there is sufficient headroom, there shouldn’t be any problems with the loft conversion. Of course, it could be awkward depending on which way the stairs would face and whether there would need to be plumbing alterations.

Factors that come into play include:

  • The roof

Roofs have changed over the years, but there are two main types – the rafter and purlin traditional style and the modern trussed. It’s generally accepted that the older style is easier to convert and properties built before the 60s incorporate this design.

  • Headroom

To make a loft conversion worthwhile you need a certain amount of headspace. The general rule of thumb seems to be a 2.3 metre headspace around the main floor area, and there’s not much point in converting if you can’t stand up.

  • Access

This is perhaps one of the most important aspects to converting your loft and you need to give this great consideration. The stairs will be important, in particular which way they face. Airing cupboards are often removed to accommodate this and the hot water cylinder will be moved elsewhere.

Energy Performance of Houses

Properties are given an energy rating dependent on how efficient they are and ratings are presented in the data down below. This varies from A, the most energy efficient, to G, the very least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have less costly energy bills as more heat shall be kept in your house. You can enhance your home's efficiency with insulation such as upvc double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
