There are many factors affecting the budget required for a loft conversion, including the scope, size and specifications of your project. Generally, velux conversions – where windows are inserted into the roof to allow natural light in – are the most cost-effective option. However, dormer conversions – flat roof extensions with a window – are the most common. Hip to gable conversions, where one of both end slopes of the roof are replaced with a gable wall are usually the most expensive.
Most lofts can be converted into other living spaces but it’s always worth checking before you commit to anything. Lofts need sufficient headroom (usually at least 2.4m) for those in it to move around as well as for building to take place. If you’re unsure of whether or not it’s possible to convert your loft into another room, ask the Refresh North Yorkshire team to carry out a free consultation and see what the experts suggest.
Installing velux windows and skylights into a loft conversion can help increase the natural light levels in the room but there are also interesting interior design techniques using lighting to create ambience that can be included. In more ambitious projects, installing a floor-to-ceiling window may be an option or the inclusion of a roof lantern.
Most loft conversions allow for homeowners to continue living in their home while building works are being carried out but for more complex projects, there may be sufficient disruption for you to consider a temporary relocation. The Refresh North Yorkshire team will always be honest about any expected disruption so that you’re able to make an appropriate decision for you and your family during renovation works.
