The opportunity to create more space
Already a three-storey property, there was scope to add a dormer and extend in the eaves making a fabulous master suite bedroom.
How we can achieve a conversion like this for your home
The client had a large property and wanted to extend further to create more space. There was scope to add a pitched roof dormer and extend into the eaves.
We had been recommended by a friend of the client whose loft we had recently converted.
Planning permission was required so our architect prepared a scheme for the client to approve and planning was obtained eight weeks later.
Stairs were already in place but the client was unhappy with the stair furniture plus they were old and worn and required a facelift.
We discussed various spindle and handrail designs resulting in all being replaced from the ground floor to the loft with better quality, sturdier furniture. The design was period, and our stair partners reproduced a new period style spindle that really brought the stairs alive. We also replaced many treads and repaired the squeaks on the existing stairs.
The overall loft conversion design was modern with a period feel.
Large Velux windows flooded light into the bedroom and stairs, and the dormer had large wooden windows fitted – custom-made from our partner window company.
The en-suite included a bath with shower with simple rippled off white tiles.
We also fitted a wooden floor for the loft and took care of all the decoration.
