Practical Considerations

Can my loft be converted?  Generally if you can measure 230cm from the highest part of the ceiling to the floor of your loft you have enough space for a loft conversion.  When planning for a new bedroom or living space it is best to ensure that over half of the loft meets this minimum requirement.

Use of Space – Even if you are opting for a simple loft conversion to make the space more accessible, clean and tidy it is always best to plan ahead. The addition of certain features will allow for further conversion works to take place if the need or desire arises. Our team will discuss any future plans that you may have and advise you on the best way to create a loft conversion that meets your current needs and can easily be changed, over time, to meet any future requirements.
