When considering a loft conversion for your home, the first question you may ask yourself could be "Which loft conversion is best?". It can be difficult to answer this question without understanding the suitability of each style in relation to the style of your property and also the difference in requirements for installing each type. There's also going to be a cost difference which will have a bearing on your decision.
Below, we have outlined the six most common styles of loft conversion in Kent to help you feel suitably informed to make a decision.
There are 3 different types of dormer loft conversion: full rear dormer, L-shaped dormer and pitched roof dormer.
The additional space gained from a full rear dormer is achieved by building out from the sloping roof of your house. This type of loft conversion uses the majority of the available roof space and is a great option if you need a loft conversion for a semi-detached property in Kent.
2. L-shaped loft conversions:
This are a better choice if you live in a mid-terrace property in Kent (one that allows for this style of build.) They offer a lot of extra room by building up and out.
3. A pitched roof dormer:
It is a loft extension usually built to match the slope of your current roof. This makes them a good choice if you live in a conservation area in Kent that may have strict planning and building criteria or in a property that demands you retain the original aesthetic of the building when making any changes or alterations beyond the superficial.
Bungalow owners in Kent can reappropriate all of their loft space and give themselves the double benefit of a large ground floor and a second storey.
Albion Ra professionally transform your dusty bungalow loft space into a shiny new functional room. Our loft conversion specialists not only redesign your loft but can also assist with the drawing and construction of the loft stairs.
An extremely popular choice, Velux loft conversions are selected due to their relative ease when it comes to installation and also due to the fact they are very cost effective - often coming in at the lower end of the price scale when it comes to loft conversions. When it comes to style, they retain the pitched roof structure and introduce an abundance of new light through the large Velux windows.
A velux loft conversion welcomes in a lot of natural light and completely changes a gloomy loft into a comfortable and enjoyable part of the home.
There are many houses in Kent that have hipped roofs. A hipped roof is identifiable by how it slopes towards the sides of the building and is often found on detached and semi detached houses. This attractive design feature can have the disadvantage of severely limiting loft and home space.
However, with a gable conversion the available space is vastly increased. Keep in mind, though, that by changing your house from hip to gable, you may need to seek planning permission.
Typically, mansard loft conversions are constructed on the back of the property and alter the shape of your existing roof. Due to this, there is a high likelihood that these particular types of loft conversion will require planning permission.
A Mansard loft conversion comprises of an additional flat roof, where the back wall slopes inwards. This design provides a huge amount of new space and is very attractive and spacious.
