Two of the most advantageous features of bungalows are that they typically have a large footprint and a steeped pitch roof, which means that the space provided by a loft conversion can be expansive.
One of the most important aspects and considerations for anybody undertaking a bungalow conversion is the impact that the stairs will have on the existing living space. Our initial consultant and architectural team will often provide a number of options for the client which will ensure that the addition of a staircase to the ground floor blends with the existing living space and actually becomes a welcome feature. Here at Rooftop Rooms we have found that having our own design and project management team means we can provide our clients with the specialist experience required to make the most of the space a bungalow conversion can provide.
Transforming The Living Space
Everyone’s home is their castle but for one particular client their new home was of particular sentimental value.
I recently moved into a bungalow in Cockfosters, which is where my parents had previously lived for almost 30 years. The bungalow has vast sentimental value to me, so I was keen to keep the property in my family; however I was also desperate to make it feel more like my own, by re-configuring and modernising the layout. I decided to start off by converting the loft to create more living and storage space to more suit my needs.
I was anxious at first to undertake such a huge amount of work to my home, so I decided that I needed specialist help and employed the services of Rooftop Rooms. From the outset I was talked through the entire process and I was able to easily propose a loft design that I wanted to achieve with their in-house architectural team, which massively put me at ease.
Bespoke Design Features
It was clear from our initial discussion with our client that she was looking to achieve a peaceful retreat with some indulgent luxury. As well as having an experienced design team we are very fortunate to have some of the industry’s most experienced loft conversion construction teams, very often advising clients of enhancements to the construction whilst works are in progress. This valuable experience ensures that no opportunity to make the most of the space available is ever missed.
I was very impressed with all the various knowledgeable and hardworking trades that worked on my home, they always ensured that my home was kept clean and tidy throughout the build, which pleasantly meant that disruption was kept to a minimum. They made suggestions for improvement as works progressed that I now realise were invaluable.
Integrated Walk-in Wardrobe
Due to the constructions teams experience during this project our client ended up with the surprise addition of a huge walk-in wardrobe. Once the loft space was created during the early stage of construction the site foreman could already see that the space was going to more than fulfil the clients requirement for a bedroom with enough space for a reading and chill out area. It was in this initial construction phase that the site foreman made a suggestion to introduce a completely separate walk-in wardrobe come dressing room. As the images show the result is amazing and not something the client had expected to achieve.
I am absolutely thrilled with my new luxury master bedroom, en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The space and layout works beautifully well and it has definitely exceeded my expectations. I now enjoy spending the majority of my time in my new peaceful retreat, looking out over the beautiful views and I can now fully appreciate that it is the best thing that I have ever done. The loft conversion has completely transformed a once small, outdated bungalow into an amazingly comfortable and spacious home, which I haven’t stopped getting compliments on, from anyone that comes over to see it.
