Many people choose to convert their loft space to gain an extra functional room in the home. You may be expecting a new baby, wanting a separate home office or simply indulging in a games room or home gym.
Loft conversions are either born out of necessity or to improve lifestyle and enjoy your property.
You should always consider the possible purposes of the loft room when you start to plan the space. Here are some tips and thoughts you guide you on maximising your investment.

If you are converting the attic space for a new master bedroom, think about adding an en-suite bathroom at the same time to avoid future disruption. We can help to design your loft bathroom to maximise a small space, positioning a shower where there is full headroom and accommodating the WC and bath under the sloped roof. Skylights can be used for daylight where dormer windows are not possible.
Loft Gym Design
With today’s busy lifestyles, wouldn’t it be fantastic to be able to work out or exercise in your own home gym? No more suffering in the cold draughty garage or taking up part of the bedroom with a cross trainer which becomes a clothes horse. Convert your unused loft space into a relaxing gym room with natural daylight to improve your physical and mental wellbeing. Our customers find that dedicating a space in their house for meditating, winding down after a day at the office or hitting the weights gives focus and room to think. You don’t need much equipment to start, just a few mats, exercise bike, treadmill and some weights. Think about installation of audio visual equipment when you plan
