Loft conversions are popular for a number of reasons. As property prices have soared recently, and the availability of finance has been limited and big deposits are required to buy, there is a new trend of offspring staying at home as they cannot afford to move out.
Most loft conversions are done with the aim of adding a bedroom and an en-suite
to the home. However, some homeowners are far more adventurous! We converted one loft in Pedmore
to a recording studio. A complimentary bed provided for the sessions that went past closing time. Velux roof-lights
and windows were replaced with sheets of insulated glass to maximise the light and views. Bold colours and wooden panels added design . Boring and bland can be forgotten if you want to be different. Dormers can be made interesting by using slate, attractive brick, Juliet balconies
and coloured aluminium windows instead of the usual white UPVC. Gone are the days when a loft conversion was a place to send the kids to, nowadays the loft is often a master suite with a separate dressing room.
