BASIC LOFT CONVERSIONS
There comes a time when your home, which was once perfect for you, starts to feel just a tad short on space. We're not talking about a massive problem, no need to buy a new house or even add a room, but you're tripping over stuff. Maybe you'd just like to park the car in the garage without having to watch out for those boxes. Or perhaps that fitness fad you threw yourselves at so enthusiastically has left you with an exercise bike and a bunch of other stuff that just sits there accusingly in the corner of the bedroom and you'd like to be able to get up in the night and not have to negotiate it in the dark on the way to the toilet. You're not alone. Hundreds of homeowners hit that point, and the smart ones turn to us for the quickest, most cost-effective, and most convenient way of expanding their home space – the basic loft conversion.
For more elaborate loft conversions – into offices, spare bedrooms, or playrooms, we are the experts and you can read more about it on our page about general loft conversions. When it comes to basic loft conversions, however, storage is pretty much always the name of the game. For a basic loft conversion to storage the chances are that you won't have to apply for planning permission and you won't be forking out huge sums. Over time it can work out cheaper to have your loft converted than to pay for professional storage plus you have the bonus that your belongings are still on site in your own home.
Lofts weren't constructed for use as rooms and the first thing to do is almost certainly to put down a floor. The type of floor depends on the intended usage as it must be strong enough to support anything you're storing as well as give you safe access to your belongings. That could mean a full floor or a walkway solution so give us a call, tell us your plans, and we'll help you decide what you need.
Once you start to use your loft as home space you're going to need some lighting in there. A window makes for a highly attractive space if you're likely to spend time up there but if it has to be installed there are cost and potentially planning issues involved. We'll help you with the details of that. Alternatively the most basic and popular conversions simply run a lighting system up to the loft with two way switching so it can be turned on or off from above or below, and a warning light at the bottom of the access so you don't accidentally leave that loft light burning bright all night.
No point having a loft conversion without having access and in most cases that means ladders. There are a number of options when it comes to ladder access including sliding ladders and folding ladders so let us help you decide what will be best for your home, and your needs.
