Factors determining Loft Conversion Designs in Small Houses
Anyone living in a small home will appreciate any added space even if it comes in the form of a Loft conversion. In most cases, people get loft conversions for extra bedrooms or hobby and game rooms. Some use them for laundry and storage spaces.
There are different designs of loft conversions, and there are some factors that determine the kind of room you will get. Among these is the cost of the conversion, which can have the contractor making a simple extension for you. Such conversions will entail fitting structural supports and flooring for the extra space. An external window may be an added feature. On the other hand, people with the required funds may have more than one external windows and structural changes to the inside of the loft. Such alterations include split floors that add space.
Access to the Loft
The accessibility of the loft will determine the design of the conversion, especially when it comes to the stairs. The landing and other structural features will determine whether the contractor will fit a spiral or free standing staircase to complement the loft.
Some building regulations and planning rules may also have a bearing on the kind of loft that you get. In some places, contractors have had to remove the conversion because their designs were against the laid regulations. It is always important to brief your contractor on the planning and building laws in the area so that everything is done in the right manner.
