Transform your West London home with a stunning loft conversion
Why you should consider a loft conversion in West London?
Once you convert your loft into a practical living space, you will no longer only dream of rooms where the sunlight bounces off the walls and fills the room. A conversion at the top of your home allows the natural light to beam in through your Velux windows or Juliette balcony, in effect, brightening your mood as well as the room. With the conversion being at the top of your home, neighbours will be unaware of the living space you have created for your family and will offer you endless amounts of privacy
With family being the most precious thing in our lives, it is important to keep them close and happy. If your family is growing, the stress and confusion of moving home, in addition to the costs, could be far too much hassle with young children around. By converting your loft, you will gain the additional living space that you are after but won’t need to take your family away from the comfort of their home. There will be only minimal levels of dust and disruption while the building work takes place, allowing family life to resume as normal.
Converting your loft will save you time, money and stress. By creating a ground floor extension, the building work would be far more intrusive on your home. By digging up your garden to lay new foundations and having builders manoeuvre through your property all day, the home improvement becomes stressful for everyone. However, by having only a handful of builders in your home at any given time during the conversion, you will be almost unaware of just how much work is being carried out on your property. By adding the additional space while allowing the driveway and garden space to remain you are also adding great value to your North London home.
How you could use your West London loft conversion?
During the initial meet, we will assess any needs and requirements that are specific to your home and show you a series of examples that would work well for you. We will also draw up a free design, worth £600, to show you exactly how things would appear in your loft space. Having designed and built loft conversions for many homes throughout West London, in areas such as Hammersmith and Notting Hill, we never see homes which are the same as the last. With our wide range of expertise in varied loft shapes, we will find the way to allow your space to reach its full potential whilst maximising its space.
The opportunities that your loft holds are endless. You could create a child’s playroom to keep noise and mess away from the centre of the house. The space could also convert into a games room or cinema room to create a vibrant and sociable hub within your home. A common choice amongst West London conversions is to turn the space into a chill-out zone to escape the busy streets of London and unwind in the comfort of your own home. Of course, the option to house one or two bedrooms, a wet-room or a bathroom are also popular choices. Being able to wake up each morning to a bright and airy space, flooded with natural light, will allow you to start your day with a fresh, positive mindset. Allow us to work with you and your dreams to enhance your home and create the additional living space that will transform your lifestyle, as well as your home.
Your loft conversion questions answered
Have a question about loft conversions? We’re happy to help. Read our answers to the questions that our customers frequently ask us.
How long does a loft conversion take?
Depending on the size and type, most loft conversions take around 12 weeks.
Will I need to move out during the project?
No – it’s safe to carry on living inside the property. We work from the scaffolding before the stairs go in. Any disruption you experience will mainly come from noise.
Where will you place our new staircase?
We will be able to fit your staircase around your existing layout and will find an option to suit you. If possible, we will try to fit your new staircase over the existing staircase so that it fits seamlessly within your property.
Do I need planning permission for a loft conversion?
This depends on your location and type of property – all flats require planning, but if you live in a house that isn’t in a designated area, then permitted development is usually used and no planning is required. There are many other factors to take into account and one of our surveyors can advise further.
How much does a loft conversion cost?
Most cost between £30,000 and £50,000. This depends on the size and type – bigger and more complicated jobs take longer and therefore will cost more. See pricing information for further details.
What is a party wall agreement and do I need one for a loft conversion?
A party wall agreement (PWA) is required if you have a semi-detached or a terraced property and you are working within or near your neighbour’s boundary. We can advise when the surveyor visits.
Does a loft conversion add value to a home?
Yes – it will add from 20% to 30% upwards depending on the size, design and type.
How much head height do you need for a loft conversion?
If you have a clear head height of 2m then a loft conversion may be possible. Our surveyor will need to assess this to confirm.
What’s possible with your loft conversion?
These are some of the build possibilities you might want to consider for your loft conversion:
