Top Considerations for your Wanstead Loft Conversion

Many homeowners in Wanstead are choosing to convert their lofts, and with good reason. The majority of the homes in the area lend themselves well to a loft conversion. But when it comes to loft conversions Wanstead homeowners should consider certain aspects carefully.

Consider the type of property

Wanstead boasts many Victorian properties, as well as a few Georgian buildings and some from slightly later periods. Victorian houses are excellent for loft conversions as they usually offer good proportions and have spacious attics.

With this in mind, if you own a Victorian property in Wanstead, have a think about how you can best use your loft space, or consult a loft conversion specialist. Many lofts in this area of east London are able to take advantage of L-shaped loft conversions and even L-shaped dormers. For properties with a double extension to the rear, as is often characteristic of Wanstead’s Victorian properties, an L-shaped dormer, or even just a simple L-shaped conversion, will provide a considerable amount of extra space.

Alternatively, if you don’t wish to turn the whole of your L-shaped home into an interior loft conversion, why not ask your attic specialist whether you can include a small roof terrace area instead?

Consider the family home

Wanstead is an attractive prospect for many families looking to live in east London, and with its excellent schools and overall village feel, it’s easy to see why. As such, regardless of whether you are a growing unit, looking to start a family in the not-too-distant-future, or have grown-up children who have flown the family nest, it’s worth considering that should you ever be looking to move, the family feel in Wanstead will make your property saleable.

With this in mind, when converting your loft, think about not only what you need now, but what will sell should you decide to up sticks in the future. Family homes benefit from an extra bedroom and bathroom, or perhaps two smaller bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom for the kids. Alternatively, a home office is a great choice for a Wanstead loft conversion, as it’s perfect for those young professionals who either run their own businesses or work flexibly.

Consider a room with a view

One of the great pulls of Wanstead is its green, leafy feel. If you’re lucky enough to have this on your doorstep, why not consider taking advantage with your new loft conversion? By this we mean floor to ceiling windows, with a Juliet balcony, or perhaps that aforementioned roof terrace.
