What would you do with the extra loft space? A relaxing bedroom retreat? Self-contained micro apartment? Or a lively loft nursery and playroom? Whatever space you’re planning, Absolute Lofts can make your new loft space a reality.
Our talented team of loft designers, RIBA architects and tradespeople have been turning lofts in South West London into beautiful, value-adding spaces for over 35 years.
Familiar with the structure of South West London period and modern homes, we carry out conversions – often several in the same street – in Croydon, Kingston upon Thames, Lambeth, Merton, Richmond, Sutton and Wandsworth every year.
Loft conversions are suitable for all types of property, from Chelsea and Kensington mansions and town houses to period terraces seen in Streatham, Stockwell, Brixton, Tooting and South Lambeth.
The proportions of South West London Victorian and Edwardian homes lend themselves especially well to loft conversions – creating bright, airy master bedrooms and bathrooms – but it is also possible to extend lofts in new build homes, flats, maisonettes and converted apartments.
Whatever the property age or size, we can craft a loft space to meet your living space needs.
We ensure your loft conversion is meticulously designed and constructed from planning to completion.
In the first instance we will conduct a free site survey to discuss your ideas and assess your loft space, looking at aspects such as roof structure, head height and staircase space.
As well as confirming building regulations approval, we can support you through planning permission, and if you share a party wall with a neighbour, obtaining permission for the build.
If your home is in one of South West London’s many conservation areas, we also make sure your conversion preserves character in line with local authority requirements.
Depending on your home’s location and roof profile, it maybe apt for a range of loft conversion types.
A popular and cost-effective conversion for South West London properties is a Dormer loft conversion. A Dormer is a spacious box-shaped extension which projects upward from the main roof, creating an abundance of space and light.
If your roof structure allows an L-shaped Dormer – two Dormers connected in an L-shape configuration – this creates even more space, usually accommodating one or two bedrooms and a bathroom.
A further option is a Mansard loft conversion. Unlike a Dormer conversion, the wall construction is pitched at 72-degrees, adding a slight slope. Its slightly softer aesthetic complements older London properties.
Our clients often have growing families and want more space. One of the most popular loft conversions is a master bedroom en suite – creating a haven for parents and freeing up the floor below for children’s bedrooms and/or a home office.
Another popular loft layout is one or two children’s bedrooms and a bathroom with bath and walk-shower. Ceiling height is ample enough for bunk beds, plus sloping walls and niches make ideal spots for cupboards and shelves.
