Could a loft conversion be the answer to creating your perfect home office?

Having your own space to focus, create and even conduct virtual meetings can be invaluable if you work from home.

Even if your current role means that you must commute to work, there is a growing trend of people working from home (fuelled partly by the Corona virus outbreak of 2020) either:

  • Working for a company who allow working from home
  • Freelancing online with their skillset
  • Running their own business from home

If you have limited space in your home or are tired of working out of the spare room surrounded by junk and laundry, a loft conversion could be just the solution you need.

There are many benefits to creating a home office with a loft conversion:

  • On a different floor away from family distractions
  • Increases the value of your property
  • Creates a dedicated space for you to maximise your potential
  • Could always be repurposed as a guest room in the future

You can make an inspiring, beautiful environment to work in by adding features like a Juliet balcony to a dormer, a window balcony into a sloping roof or even a whole balcony, if your house is suitable.

Just think about being able to work outside in the sunshine at roof level, with a beautiful view and glass of juice! Imagine the envy of your colleagues and business associates as you conduct your meetings from your spectacular home office!

The existing roof space in your house will affect what type of loft conversion you can have; there are four main types:

  • Roof Light Conversion
  • Dormer Conversion
  • Hip-to-Gable Conversion
  • Mansard Conversion

To see approximate costs for each type of loft conversion, please see this article here.

Roof Light Loft Conversion

A roof light loft conversion is the simplest and cheapest type of conversion, because it requires the least amount of modification to the roof structure of your property.

Roof lights or ‘Sky lights’ are placed within the sloping sides of the roof to provide natural light, but the downside is that you will get much less usable space than if you used dormers or another type of conversion which changes the slope of your roof.

You can still have a balcony with a loft conversion of this type, using special window balconies which fit into sloping roofs.

Dormer Loft Conversions

Dormers add a significant amount of additional space to your loft conversion and make it appear much more like a traditional ‘room’ as opposed to ‘roof space’.

Dormer loft conversions tend to be slightly more expensive that roof light conversions because they alter the roof shape considerably, but they also allow the use of standard window units and even doors / Juliet balconies.

Hip-to-Gable Loft Conversions

Hip-to-Gable loft conversions are only suitable for semi-detached or detached houses with hipped roofs. This type of loft conversion removes the ‘hipped’ element of the roof and replaces it with a gable, hence the name.

Hip-to-gable loft conversions are more expensive than roof light or dormer conversions because they require a significant reworking of the roof structure, however they do create a lot of usable space and can also be combined with dormers for even more space.

Mansard Loft Conversions

A mansard loft conversion is the most complicated and expensive type of loft conversion, but it gives the maximum amount of usable space of any type of conversion and can be used to create a stunning environment to work in.

A mansard loft conversion effectively replaces the sloping roof of your property with one that is nearly vertical around the edges and quite flat in the centre.
