Londoners are increasingly turning to L-shaped dormer loft conversions, which combine two rear dormers – one dormer is on the main roof, and another dormer is on the back – into an “L” shape. This type of conversion is typically suitable only for Victorian or Edwardian homes, particularly those with a mid-terraced design. As dormer loft design extensions often fall within permitted development requirements in many areas, planning permission may not be required resulting in up to 50 cubic metres more space without any major hassle!
Transform your property in London with a luxurious double Mansard – the biggest type of loft conversion available in the city. Perfect for period homes, it can provide an entirely new level of living space thanks to its combination of sloping walls and dormer windows – all while avoiding planning restrictions common in many areas across town.
A Velux loft conversion, or ‘skylight conversion’, is incredibly simple in loft design. It does not change the roof structure as it adds skylights or Velux windows to the existing roof structure. This brings more light into your loft, which is ideal if you want to convert your attic space into a bedroom, office or kid’s playroom.
An L shape mansard conversion is an innovative and efficient loft idea for Victorian or Edwardian houses and flats with a rear addition. By extending the mansard over this area, owners can transform it into valuable amenities such as extra bedrooms, studies, nurseries or bigger en-suites/dressing rooms! But, a mansard extension requires full planning permission. This space-savvy loft conversion not only adds functional value to your property but also increases its potential resale value.
Transform your house with an exciting and cost-efficient hip-to-gable loft conversion. This loft type is popular on semi-detached and detached properties. Here, the type of roof alteration straightens out sloping ceilings for more headroom, allowing you the freedom to create larger floor plans with bigger furniture pieces. Furthermore, Hip-to-gable loft work can help extend existing conversions by adding extra space – ideal for creating a leisure area or small office in any bedroom! Best of all, these transformations are comparatively hassle-free as they fall under permitted planning & development rights.
Londoners can now enjoy outdoor living all year round with luxurious loft roof terraces! These elevated sanctuaries provide an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, featuring al fresco dining areas, gardens, hot tubs – even swimming pools and flamingos. Planning permission is required for these architectural loft conversions; however, they remain popular in densely populated residential areas where space is at a premium.

A loft conversion with a full-back addition is the perfect choice for Londoners looking to expand their living space without sacrificing natural light or stunning city views.
