Extensions, porches & loft conversions ideas

There are several types of loft conversions, extensions, and porches to choose from. They include:

Dormer loft conversion

A dormer loft conversion is added to increase the roof space and still provide a full head height. The additional space can be a study room, home office, bedroom, a nursery, or a separate bathroom. You may also consider having a separate dressing room adjacent to the master bedroom.

There are different dormer styles to suit every home. they include;

  • Shed dormer- This is often a flat roof sloping down.
  • L-shaped dormer – This dormer usually has two parts touched on above to form an L shape.
  • Flat roof dormer – This is a dormer where the flat roof sits horizontally.
  • Dog-house dormer- The roof has two pitched sides resembling a classic dog house.
  • Hipped roof dormer- It's similar to the dog-house dormer, but it's three-sided instead of two-sided.

Ideally, any home with a loft space and a pitched roof can have a dormer.

Hip to gable loft

The hip to gable loft conversion provides a solution for a property with space-inhibiting roofs. This small loft conversion adds an extra room to a hipped roof. You can extend the headroom with this loft conversion to allow you to make better use of the floor space.

Mansard loft

A mansard loft conversion is where one or both slopes of a roof get replaced with a new, stunning structure with extremely steep sloping sides. This loft design is used where the initial roof has no or little headroom. However, this design may need planning permission.

Bungalow loft

Bungalow loft conversions are increasingly becoming popular. Adding an office space, a cinema room, or an extra bedroom on top of your bungalow has never been this easy. However, with this design, you're not allowed to increase or raise the height of your roof.
