Loft Conversion Bedrooms
Converting your loft into a bedroom
A loft conversion is a great way of gaining extra space without the stress and financial implications of moving home. A loft conversion is much cheaper than building an extension, it makes full use of wasted space and it enhances the value of your property. Just take a moment to really think about what your loft is currently being used for. Old toys, baby clothes, furniture that will probably never be used again – why not fully utilise this wasted space and create an extra bedroom, and if space allows add an en-suite too. You are not only creating an extra bedroom, but you are also allowing the opportunity to extend your existing home.
With the extra space a loft conversion brings, you could knock an internal wall down and extend your kitchen, dining area of lounge. The possibilities are endless. Whether you have a growing family, would like to use an existing room for another purpose, have always fancied a guest room or simply want to add value to your home then converting your loft into a bedroom is perfect.
Many people choose to convert their unused loft space into a bedroom. A loft conversion is ideal as the building works are considered to be a fairly simple when compared to an extension, which means the price is cost effective, the time frame to complete the work is small and it won’t interfere too much with your day to day living.
Another great reason to convert your loft is that planning permission is not usually required as it is considered to be a permitted development. However, there are circumstances when planning permission will need to be granted. It is best to contact your local authority to check.

A loft usually has enough room for you to build a bedroom along with a shower room or bathroom. Adding a bathroom to your loft conversion is usually quite straight forward, as the pipes and water supply are close at hand.
