What to Consider when Planning for a Loft Conversion

The two main considerations for a loft conversion in Harmondsworth are usually available headroom and staircase position, whereas the two main considerations for an extension are usually available area (under current planning rules, you can only develop up to 50% of the garden) and building position. It takes vision to convert a dark, unused attic into a bright, functional room. VELUX has a number of case studies of real-life loft conversion projects featured here that can provide you with new ideas for how to design the space. There are also helpful how-to guides available to walk you through the loft design and conversion process.


Once you've determined that your loft is suitable for conversion - ideally, the highest point should be at least 2.3m and there should be enough space to fit a new staircase - it's time to design the space! The loft is ideal for a games room, hobby room, or ensuite bedroom. A home cinema or music room, for example, will have different lighting requirements than a bedroom. A clever design can make the most of sometimes-uncomfortable attic spaces. Design the layout around what must be at full head height, such as a shower, and place desks and dressing tables in lower areas. Before any construction begins, decide on the exact room layout, down to the placement of furniture, the bed, and any built-in storage, so that the plumbing and electrics can be planned.


You may not require planning permission (always check with your local council), but you must always consider building regulations. You are converting the loft into a 'livable space,' which requires building regulations approval from a qualified building control inspector. The regulations cover a wide range of topics, including structural safety, energy efficiency, electrics, fire safety, insulation, drainage, door and window efficiency, and stair placement and style. The stairs must have a minimum head height of 2m and be part of a fire escape route with a fire door.


The average cost of a Loft Conversion in Harmondsworth is between £40,000 to £90,000. (in 2022) The most common type of Loft Conversion is the dormer as it adds the most space and best light to your property. A loft conversion will not only give you extra space but also enhance your living space on your property. A loft conversion price depends on many factors such as type of the conversion, type of the roof you have, type of the lighting you want in the loft, the type of windows required, the size of the project, fixtures and fittings, nature of the exterior, client's personal requirements and the site's location.
