Planning your loft conversion with Cedar Loft Conversions

When you are planning your loft conversion, consider some of the details that are involved. A clear idea of what you want will always help form your new conversion, remember that Cedar Loft Conversion can help you plan the conversion you want.

Useful points to consider for your loft conversion:

  • What will the room be used for?
    Typical loft coversions are: home office, bedroom, playroom for the children (or even adults), extra sitting room, home entertainment room & star gazing. Bathrooms are increasingly more popular, en-suites comprising of shower rooms, bathrooms or just a toilet and hand basin.

  • What type of lighting?
    eg Spot lamps, low voltage halogens. Consideration for natural light and window placement.

  • How many windows?
    Light into a loft conversion can really open up the visual space. Cedar Loft Conversions uses Velux loft windows.

  • What kind of flooring?
    Obviously dependant on the type of property you have and the kind of loft conversion you want.

  • What kind of access?
    Your stair access is important, after all your loft conversion wants to flow naturally from the existing house, which is why all of our stairs are purpose made to match exactly the original design of yours.

  • Where will the stairs will rise from?
    You'll need to consider where your new stairs to your loft conversion will rise from. This can be dictated by the structure of your property.

  • Will you require heating in the room?
    The loft can be the coldest room and also the warmest in any property and consideration for the heating of your loft conversion can be crucial in making it perfect for you.

  • Can your home have a loft conversion?
    Your roof height is crucial, ideally a minimum of 2.4 metres from the ridge to the existing floor of your loft is needed, the ridge height in many circumstances can not be increased. But we have increased ridge height on terraced house loft conversions in Swindon and London where the adjoining neighbour’s roof was higher than the project undertaken.

According to house value surveys a bedroom and bathroom in a loft conversion can add up to 30% to the value of your property.

Building regulations
