If you think you may be interested in converting your loft, there are a few things you may want to consider.
The fact is that most of us could benefit from more room in our homes, yet we have a lot of space in the loft that the majority of us just ignore. For many of us, our lofts are either completely empty or are being used to store a few boxes of junk – either way, we’re failing to make the most of this wonderful space available.
There are many ways in which you could benefit from a loft conversion. You could create an additional bedroom, a family luxurious bathroom, office space, a playroom, studio or just a more sophisticated storage room complete with fitted cupboards. Not only will a loft conversion make your life so much easier, but it could also add value to your home.
Gaining planning permission can often deter people from carrying out construction work on their home. Fortunately, loft conversions are categorised under permitted development, meaning that you do not need an application for permission (unless you plan to extend or alter the structure of the roof itself).
There are several practicalities you should think about prior to getting a loft conversion, however. These include things such as where the staircase will go, the location of the electricity points and whether your boiler is currently large enough to cope with extra radiators.
At BSM Building, we have the skill and experience to talk you through all of these considerations prior to beginning work on your loft conversion. From the point of planning right through to the completion of the project, we can offer you advice and recommendations as well as providing you with a top-quality service.
