By a ‘Velux Only Loft Conversion’ we mean that there is no addition of a dormer to the roof; the loft conversion construction takes place wholly within the pitch of the existing roof.
To achieve this type of loft conversion the property must have good head height in the unconverted loft space to enable the conversion.
Transforming a Property With A Conversion
In this particular example of a Velux Only Loft Conversion, this beautiful bungalow in Enfield truly blows the image of bungalows being only for old people out of the water!
The clients had already used most of the property’s permitted development rights to build an extension. After several consultations with the local authority it was clear that what could be achieved from a dormer conversion would not be cost effective in relation to additional space. Therefore, as the bungalow had excellent head height, the client decided to progress with a Velux only conversion.
The exterior structure of the roof remains unchanged other than the addition of multiple Velux windows to provide natural light throughout the loft conversion. The minimal exterior changes do little to provide anyone with any clues to what has been achieved internally!
Architectural Design Features
Our client was initially very concerned about the effect that the staircase to the new loft would have on their existing living space. Our in-house architectural team worked with the client to create a suitable staircase design that was not too imposing on the space whilst keeping the feel of the room light and airy.
As you can see with a bespoke glass balustrade it is hard to imagine the room without the beautiful open staircase. In fact it has become a stunning design feature of the home.
Creating a stunning master bedroom
This amazing Velux loft conversion has enabled our clients to achieve a truly amazing master bedroom suite with the welcome addition of an en suite bathroom.
Within the loft our skilled carpenters created a space saving bi-fold door to the bathroom in order to ensure that the door has minimal impact on the space when it is opened into the bathroom.
The photographs show a great example of some bespoke wardrobes created by one of our carpenters. The wardrobes make great use of the otherwise redundant space under the pitch of the roof, adding invaluable storage space to this stunning loft room.
As we have a growing family and wanted to stay in the area, we decided to explore options on extending our 3 bedroom bungalow. A loft conversion seemed to be the obvious choice and after spending some time researching local companies and tradesmen we opted to go for ‘Rooftop Rooms’. Colin, Gary and the Team were helpful and friendly and guided us through the whole process from their in-house architect and design team, planning application and the build itself. What we now have is a wonderfully designed loft room with en-suite. This fantastic and stylish space has not only been a wonderful addition to our family home but also a huge improvement on our lifestyle, something that you can’t put a price on, thanks to ‘Rooftop Rooms “
As our client says a great example of what can be achieved from a Velux only conversion! With the right design & construction team!
