With political uncertainty seemingly endless, the housing market is quiet and householders are looking for other ways to maximise space rather than selling and upsizing.
If you have a traditionally styled home with a good roof space then a loft conversion might seem like a great idea. Before you get carried away with the grand plan, you need to establish whether your loft is actually big enough to convert (work on a minimum head height of 2.3 metres) and what type of configuration would work. A firm established of loft conversion builders can offer guidance on space, design, the position of the windows, heating and energy efficiency not forgetting the all-important budget.
Assuming the roof space is big enough and there are no difficulties with planning permission, here are some ideas to chew on as you plan your rooftop design.
- Work on a design that embraces the configuration of the space to its best advantage. If the available space is conservative then don’t split it into two rooms. A good loft conversion specialist can advise you for the same.
- Use light colours for the interior to maximise the feel of space
- Furnish with warm honeyed woods and some rich, dark textiles to give the room a cosy feeling
- Plan the design right through to the end look – you will need to know exactly what furniture will go where as this may affect the conversion
- Incorporate architectural features chimney breasts into the final design
