Loft & Attic Conversions
For many the loft or attic space in their home is a dark and
murky place either filled with insulation or a dumping ground for
all those things that have been accumulated over the years.
Forgotten boxes mingle with ancient Christmas decorations whilst a
cold water tank bubbles away in the corner.
However a loft conversion can transform this space into one of
the finest rooms in the home. Before converting the roofspace,
first work out how you're actually going to gain access in the
first place. A new set of bespoke stairs must conform to
building regulations and how they're configured could have an
impact on the rooms below.
If access to the attic is agreeable then you're working with a
blank canvas. By its very design your loft will have a very
similar, if not exact, footprint to your property. This allows
great freedom in how the actual space is configured and the choices
are virtually limitless.
If you decide to go for a dormer conversion then you can choose
from a selection of windows from our extensive range. We also have
a whole host of solutions to bring natural light in from outside
including Velux roof windows - some of
which are electric powered for those hard to access positions.
Installing an en-suite bathroom or a wet room when converting
your loft is a sure-fire way of optimising the space. If the area
available is against the pitch of the existing roof then Jewson can
manufacture bespoke shower doors and provide compact bathroom
suites that have been specifically designed for this
Another key factor to incorporate when you convert your attic is
storage. This can be done by creating cupboards under the eaves
that can be accessed through hatches along their length, or by a
door at one end. Regardless of whether you've managed to rid
yourself of all that clutter when you emptied the loft, every
home needs somewhere
away those things that aren't always on show.
There are numerous things to consider when taking on any
building project and Jewson's Self Build team has a wealth of
experience in guiding people through what can sometimes seem to be
a daunting journey. In addition with over 600 sites nationwide, you
can tap into this abundance of knowledge by speaking to one of our
