How to Smarten the Front of your Home when Converting your Loft

Any good loft conversion company will make sure your home is converted with a minimum of fuss and disruption to you. Having said this, it’s still a major undertaking for your home. If you’re going to the trouble of converting your loft, you may want to consider smartening the rest of your home, too.

Homes with new loft conversions Essex-wide can benefit from a few simple options for smartening the exterior of their home. Why not think about your home as a whole package?


The benefit of changing your windows throughout your home as part of a loft conversion project is that you will have likely installed new windows in your new loft room. This means that you can choose windows that match or complement those in your loft conversion, so as to improve the rest of your home.

Of course, it may be that you have dark framed windows in your loft conversion in order for them to blend in with your roof. This doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t revamp the rest of your home with new windows in a white frame; just be sure to choose the same frame in white to make the look consistent.

Render and Paint

Many older homes are finished with traditional pebble dashing. This is fine, and of course doesn’t impact on having your loft converted, but why not have the exterior of your home rendered and painted as part of the loft conversion work?

A smart plaster render and painting your home in a contemporary colour – such as French grey or soft sage green – will really improve the look of your home. Top this off with your new loft room, and your property will look brand new!

New Roof Tiles

Replacing your roof when converting your loft isn’t always necessary but may well be recommended by your loft conversion company. Even if it’s not necessary, however, you may decide to replace your roof anyway, as this will instantly lift the exterior of your home.

Why not go the whole hog and replace your roof, your windows and repaint the exterior brickwork in one go? In for a penny, in for a pound! Converting your loft is a great home improvement project and it’s worth thinking about the rest of your property at the same time. Contact Bespoke Lofts today to see how you can improve your home.
