Improve your bungalow with a loft conversion
Have you ever found yourself needing some extra space, or maybe looking to make the most of the view beyond your property? Bungalows can be the cosiest and most idyllic properties that you can own, but they aren’t the most versatile type of property when it comes to making significant changes.
Add a new dimension to your home
This is where a loft conversion can come in handy. Not only providing you with more space and giving you the chance to see your land from a new perspective, a loft conversion also makes the space downstairs instantly more flexible.
A bedroom, study area or even living room could be relocated upstairs, meaning you could expand the kitchen or bathroom, or create an entirely new room in what would now be your downstairs. The flexibility provided by a bungalow loft conversion is taking the perception of a bungalow – a residence ideal for retirement – and turning it upside down.
See your property in a new light
A loft conversion is now a popular choice for both families and young people, which means homeowners no longer have to be limited by space and layout when they opt for a bungalow. As bungalows are often built on larger plots of land, a loft conversion provides an ideal opportunity to see this extra land in all of its glory.
At Bespoke Lofts, we often help homeowners to discover this extra potential in their property. Often unconsidered but regularly unleashed, there could be a new room waiting for you already, just above the ceiling. Get in touch to discuss what you’d love your loft to become.
Benefits of loft conversions new builds
Are you looking for a little more space, but really love where you live already?
A common problem encountered by new-build homeowners is that it can be problematic to significantly alter the building itself. New builds often come with slightly less external land than older properties, which can mean that potential extensions and conservatories are limited in how much space they can take up.
Add space without losing land
Thankfully, there is another option. With a dormer attic conversion or dormer loft conversion, you can make use of the space that’s already in your property, without compromising the land you own outside.
When you bought your new-build property, it’s likely that you received information on what you could and could not do with the building – the loft included. However, many of these restrictions are time-limited, and are initially detailed to maintain the aesthetic of the new homes while other properties in the area are still being sold.
Realise the hidden potential in your home
If you have any doubts about whether you will be able to convert your loft, your property developer should be able to tell you exactly where you stand.
Your new loft conversion can be anything you want it to be. It could be an additional bedroom, study or living area, a way to free up much-needed storage space, or just an extra room that lets you make more of the space in the rest of the house.
Even if you don’t think there’s much space up there, you may be surprised to learn just how much can be done.
