L-Shaped Loft Conversion- Everything you Need to Know

Creating new accommodation by opening up the loft is certainly an exciting option to explore as there are different types of designs and floor plans to consider. One of the designs that you can consider is an l-shaped loft conversion because it creates the largest amount of space, especially when you require additional headroom. With the larger space, you can have numerous configuration options, which also include multiple rooms.

What exactly is an l-shaped loft conversion? This kind of conversion involves a dormer window. Put simply, these are roof windows that are extended vertically from the slope of your roof. When an l-shaped loft conversion is done, two dormers basically connect in a corner. The larger end of the dormer is usually built into the main roof whereas the other end is built into the roof of a rear extension. When you decide to go for l-shaped loft conversion, you end up creating roof space that closely replicates the design and space of the first floor.

A standard loft conversion on an Edwardian or Victorian terraced property would typically provide a single room, with perhaps a snug study nook or en-suite. Alternatively, an additional room can be created into the overall design with an l-shaped loft conversion. However, one thing to bear in mind is that these kind of conversions are only possible on certain types of property because a rear extension is required for implementing them.

L-shaped loft conversion are considered an excellent way of gaining additional space in a property that has a very limited garden area. When you extend the loft, it means that you don’t have to compromise on the vital yet little garden space that you have by going for a ground floor extension. Most l-shaped loft conversions don’t require planning permission, but it is still best to get it.
