Bring Your Loft to Life

Create extra living space in your home by converting your unused loft space into an extra bedroom, bathroom or home office.

If you live in a house with an unused loft, a conversion could be the most cost effective way to add extra space. Loft rooms are suitable for almost any purpose, from bedrooms and bathrooms to a home office or playroom, gym or home cinema.

A loft conversion to your property can add anything from 15 to 20% value to your home, as well as creating additional living space for your family without the loss of valuable garden space.

During our first appointment RJH will discuss your requirements and help you establish the best way to maximise your loft space. Through careful design and planning we will advise you on how to create a light-filled space with plenty of character.

Some helpful tips to help you get started:

  • Even if there doesn’t seem to be much space to convert your loft, there is usually scope to move the roof timbers or water tanks and to increase the volume by adding dormer windows or changing the shape of the roof.
  • If your loft is built using modern trusses, with a web of thin timbers, it can still be altered to create a useable space.
  • Planning permission often isn’t required, as long as the design falls within the rules for Permitted Development, but all work must comply with the Building Regulations. RJH will ensure all work is inspected and approved.
  • There are no rules on space or ceiling height for a loft conversion, other than for staircases, which need minimum clear headroom of 2.0m (1.8m at the edge) to meet the Building Regulations.
  • The minimum practical ceiling height for a loft room is 2.0m.
  • There are many types of different loft conversions and RJH will help you choose the right one for your home. See our Glossary for more information or if you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.
