UK Loft Conversions

Bench seating is a fine option for summerhouses and that’s because they can be extremely versatile. If you’re designing them yourself, you can make them into chairs, which lift up so there are storage spaces below. The whole bench panel that you sit on can be raised so you can store equipment such as books, magazines, shoes and candles, so you never run out of supplies! With bench seating, you can also neatly arrange them around a coffee table, whilst it means you do not have to ever buy or update chairs. The only job you may need to do is reupholster the cushions every few years to stay on trend. Another big advantage with bench seating is that it can save space. These are tight to the wall of the summerhouse so you make full use of the space on offer and leave more of an area in the middle of the room for coffee tables, radios or TVs.

Skylights can add a touch of class and elegance to your home, and there are so many different shapes, sizes and designs to choose between nowadays. That said, with this working as an additional window in the home, should you look at buying custom made curtains or blinds, so you’re able to shut out the light when you wish? This wouldn’t be a bad idea, and many people opt for electric operated blinds, as it means they don’t have to grab a ladder or stand or a chair to operate them. With electric operated blinds, you’ll shut the light out beautifully, even if the skylights are positioned at an awkward angle. As great as it is to have lots of fresh daylight in a room, it can also be very nice to shut out light in the evenings and remove any source of chill from the room, so installing blinds is a great way to do this, just do opt for electric operation if your skylights are quite high up.

There are many reasons for needing an extra room in your home, such as a growing family, the need for an office, or siblings wanting some privacy. If building an extension is off limits and you are unable to create a loft conversion, an alternative option could be to add a wall partition to create two small rooms for one large room.

You can add a partition wall in a variety of different ways, depending on how permanent you wish this alteration to last. For a permanent change, simply adding a wood and plasterboard wall will work perfectly, creating a wall that blends into the rest of the room.

For a less permanent option, you could add a long ceiling rail and curtain, partitioning the room with the material, this can be an option for providing older siblings with some extra privacy. There are other alternatives too, such as a plastic folding wall that can be put up and taken down as required.

It can seem like such a setback when you hear the news that your loft conversion has not been approved by the council. Whilst it’s easy to point the finger of blame at your architect or the council workers, it’s best not to. You could speak to your architect to see if there are any other possibilities, but if not, you may want to consider an alternative. A conservatory is a good idea if you have a good amount of garden space, and some people have even turned a conservatory into a bedroom, so whatever your original plan was for your attic room, perhaps the conservatory will be just as ideal. Offices are not always occupied and transforming your office back to a bedroom can be another wise option if you’re looking to free up space in your house or make way for another child on the way. There are always different ways around rejections, so if the council says no to your attic plan, don’t waste your energy complaining; just start thinking about the next possible solution.

Most loft conversions in the UK are designed to add another bedroom or an office to the home, and there are plenty of benefits that come from this type of renovation project.

The first big advantage is of course space, and by adding another room to your house, you instantly get the feeling of having more space, especially if you have not been storing many items in your loft before. Another big win is increased value on your property. Another bedroom on paper is a good thing, and it can increase its market value considerably, so it may be a great way to add value to your home if you’re looking to sell it in a few years time. You also get more style, especially if work is carried out the highest standards. A loft conversion can be extremely stylish and it may add a touch of luxury to your home that it never had before. There are many advantages to having a loft conversion, and these are just a few.

Summerhouses are extremely popular in the UK, and that is because they’re very cheap to build whilst they don’t often require any planning permission at all. Investing in a summerhouse is a good way to add more space to your home, whilst also getting a more hidden, private area away from the hustle and bustle of family life! A conservatory is, of course, another option, but this usually works more like an additional room in your house, and some people use conservatories as additional living rooms or dining areas, so you don’t always get the same peace and quiet that you would in a summerhouse. The big advantage with conservatories, however, is the fact that they are often insulated so they’re much cosier in the winter, whilst summerhouse are usually constructed of timber and nothing else, so they can be a bit chillier, hence the term summerhouse!

If you are thinking of ways to extend your home, you may want to consider adding a glass conservatory. Glass conservatories are becoming a popular home extension option, and have improved considerably over the years.

Whilst glass conservatories use to have a bad reputation, mainly for being cold in the winter and too warm during the summer. New developments in glass technology and correct insulation installed, these issues are a thing of the past.

Glass conservatory extensions can be added to the front, back or side of your home, most popular being the back end as it leads out to your garden. The conservatory glass panels can also be fitted with blinds that have insulating properties to help maintain an equilibrium for the temperature in the room.

You may need to obtain planning permission from your local council in regards to adding a glass conservatory extension to your home, so seeking professional advice is highly recommended.

Many properties in the UK have a ground floor bedroom situated beside the kitchen, and one of the first questions buyers may ask themselves is whether it’s worth creating a more spacious kitchen by knocking the wall down. The problem is, if you already have a fully functioning kitchen that’s decent in size, you may prefer the advantage of a third bedroom. More bedrooms can often mean a higher overall value when you sell or rent the property, however, the kitchen is the most important room in a home, and if it feels too cramped or small, the potential buyer may not be quite as interested. In many cases, the question you need to ask yourself is whether you want a more spacious 2-bedroom house or a rather cramped 3-bedroom house. We’ve witnessed many transformations where a bigger kitchen makes the house more desirable to potential buyers, but the option is all yours.

There are many benefits to having a bedroom in the loft or attic and we’re going to guide you through some of these.

Space

Having extra space in your home is wonderful, especially in terms of flexibility and practicality. With a bedroom in the attic, you get another space for guests or family members to enjoy and you can free up some space elsewhere. You will also add value to your property as it’s another room in the house.

Views

Depending on the location of your home, you may also get some really wonderful views. Many attic bedrooms include Velux windows and they bring in heaps of fresh daylight whilst also giving you some pleasant scenes.

Privacy

A bedroom in the loft is really nice for privacy. You will feel secluded and hidden away in your own little shack, and you’ll also find that it’s a lot quieter up there!

Walk on glass skylights not only look stunning and add value to your home, they deliver heaps of fresh daylight to the room below as well as supreme sky views. If you have a balcony or a roof terrace, a walk on glass rooflight can be a great option. The glass used is extremely thick and strong, so it can withstand busy foot traffic so it’s a stylish addition that will surely impress and friends and relatives when you’re entertaining. If you’re worried about privacy, you can have the skylights with a darker glazing finish, ensuring people on the balcony can’t see through to the room below.

Most walk on glass skylights can be seamlessly fitted with paving slabs or decking, sitting flush so there is no visible framework whatsoever. This is perfect if you’re looking for a modern yet minimalistic style, and there is a huge range of designs to choose from. These systems are also very easy to clean and maintain, and like any other form of flooring, regular sweeping can do the job. You should always buy systems that approved by the UK government and in line with building regulations, however, it’s important to do your research first, because prices can vary depending on the design, system and manufacturer you choose.

This stylish lighting solution has become extremely popular in the UK and it’s a great way to delivery more daylight to dim rooms, helping you save on your electricity bills. If you are looking to get light into a room that is situated below a balcony or terrace, then you should definitely consider investing in a walk on glass rooflight. You only need to do a quick search online to find some of the leading suppliers and manufacturers, whilst your architect or developer may also be able to provide recommendations.
