Increase living space with a simple loft conversion

Increase living space with a simple loft conversion

Loft conversions are a great and inexpensive way of increasing the living space of a property. Provided some simple ground rules are respected, anyone can add an extra room (or more) to their home, with no need for planning permission, quick and hassle free.

Converting the loft is one of the Permitted Developments homeowners are usually allowed to make at their discretion if using standard rooflights/skylights and roof windows, as long as their property is not located in a restricted area, such as Conservation Areas – for which special Victorian-style conservation rooflights must be used.



A rooflight conversion is usually the simplest, most cost effective way to turn the “dead” space in the attic into a beautiful, bright, and – not least – useful room. Whether it be an extra bedroom, a home office, workshop or children’s playroom that is needed, a property’s loft can shelter enormous potential to fulfil the dream for extra space. With the addition of rooflights/skylights and roof windows to the front and back, the existing roof space can be converted without increasing its volume, avoiding all the lengthy bureaucracy regarding planning permission.


We offer a comprehensive choice of roof windows and rooflights/skylights available in a wide range of sizes, including emergency escape windows with larger than usual openings that comply with Building Regulations.

More natural light can be allowed in the new living space with the use of several rooflights. Choose from our range of high quality Velux, Dakea and Aurora skylights and roof windows produced by the international VKR Group. With nationwide next day delivery, and free transport for orders over £200 (ex VAT), there’s no reason why everyone can’t enjoy more living space with minimal disruption.
