Room At The Top :: Our Guide

Roof conversion inspiration from Velux

Have you noticed how we’re being bombarded at the moment with TV programmes, glossy magazines and social media messages all showing us how to “improve” our homes with designer flair or handyman skills?

Whether you are being inspired or irritated by all this media DIY encouragement, there is little doubt that careful, attractive and useful home improvements can add value to your home.  But, if what you need is not more colour but more space – for an extra bedroom, study or home office, for example – then perhaps the answer would be a loft conversion.

Do you need information about converting your loft? Just read on…

Using the loft for more living space can give you imaginative, light and airy rooms and is usually more cost-effective than building an extension – and, of course, you don’t have to sacrifice any of your garden!


The size and shape of lofts vary considerably but, even if you only have 2.3m (7ft 6in) headroom when you stand in the middle of your loft and measure from the floor to the ridge, you may still be able to create a useable and attractive room. If you are lucky enough to have a large loft, then the world is your oyster! We’ll take you through the key areas that you need to consider for your loft conversion.


The guide is split into five sections, covering all aspects from ceiling heights through to where to go for further advice and information. We’ve even added a page on frequently asked questions (FAQs). If you can’t find the answer to your question there or if you have a better answer to the questions – please feel free to email us!  Just go to the Contact Us page.


We continuously update these pages and welcome any input from you. Perhaps you have advice you’d like to pass on from your own experience of loft conversions or self build. We look forward to hearing from you.
