East London Loft Conversion Specialists

East London is home to a rich variety of housing, from Canary Wharf and Isle of Dogs’ converted warehouses and high-rise developments to rows of traditional terraces.

East London’s Victorian and Edwardian terraced and semi-detached homes are extremely popular with couples with young families, and when space becomes tight, there is often potential to extend into the loft.

If you’re considering extending upwards, our expert loft designers can conduct a free site survey. We can advise on all aspects of your project, from how to optimise every inch of space – including how to integrate all those lovely nooks and crannies into your interior – to guiding you through planning permission and regulation requirements.

If you live in a listed building or conservation area – Tower Hamlets has 58 – we can help you apply and meet local authority planning requirements. Once your design is complete, our construction team can swiftly renovate your loft, creating the extra space you desire in as little as eight to ten weeks.

East London Homes – Loft Conversion Ideas

The structure of East London’s 1920s and 1930s terraced and semi-detached homes make them ideally suited to Dormer and L-Shaped loft conversions.

Dormers are the most affordable type of loft conversion and involve constructing a box-shaped structure upwards from your sloping roof. The advantage of having vertical walls is that it allows plenty of headroom and gives classic room proportions.

If your home isn’t suitable for a rear Dormer – due to planning permission or conservation area restrictions – it may be possible to add a Mansard loft conversion. With softly sloping 72-degree facing walls and flat roofs, Mansards add ample space and blend in beautifully with period homes.

Popular Loft Conversions in East London

Turning an unused loft into liveable space not only adds value but leaves you free to design your ideal layout.

The most popular loft conversion we carry out in East London is a spacious master bedroom and en suite to relax and unwind. Another option is a bright, airy children’s bedroom or nursery with adjoining bathroom.

We are also increasingly being asked to turn lofts into stylish home offices. The benefit of an attic extension is that they can increase your home’s square footage by a third, allowing room for not just a home study but an extra bedroom and bathroom too.
