Sky Light Conversions

Adding skylights to loft space is one of the cheapest options when you are looking to transform your loft. The reason for this is that it does not require many adjustments when compared to other types of conversion.  To be able to add a skylight, you must first ensure that the space you have is large and that you have enough headroom.  

However, if you are looking to add an ensuite, this might not be a great option as it will not leave the room after adding a proper floor, staircase and windows.

Dormer conversions are unique because they great at increasing the amount of space in your loft by extending the floor area as well as the headroom.  Dormer conversions can be utilised in a variety of ways, including adding French doors that open up to the balcony.
