Loft Conversions East London: The Perfect Property

London is, and always will be, an expensive part of the country to buy property. Because of this, many of us will often compromise on one aspect of our home or another. If that compromise is space, then after a while, we may look for ways to rectify the situation. For many, the solution comes in the shape of loft conversions. East London wide, many homeowners are extending into the loft for this reason.

Property Types Perfect for Loft Conversions in East London

Thinking about loft conversions east London is one of the areas they are becoming most popular. The reason is that the property types found across east London lend themselves so well to having their attic converted. For example, the typically brick-built 1920s terraced and semi-detached houses and Victorian and Georgian terraces are ripe for conversion.

Generally, 1920s and 1930s semi-detached and terraced houses won’t require planning permission to convert the loft. Unless they’re Grade 1 or 2 listed or within a conservation area, which usually doesn’t tend to be the case in east London. They’re also an excellent choice for dormer loft conversions, ideal for those homeowners who are looking to gain extra space.

Victorian terrace houses – also typical in east London – will often leave something to be desired in their original layout. This is a particular occurrence if the property needs to accommodate a family. Just like with those houses built in the 1920s and 1930s, a loft conversion can work well in a Victorian terrace. If the floors below have been extended into an L-shape, you can then create an L-shaped dormer conversion within the loft.

Extending Family Homes with Loft Conversions in East London

East London boroughs tend to be populated by families, making loft conversions accessible. Besides, loft conversions within the mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced houses make an attractive prospect for buyers in some areas of east London.

Family needs aside, perhaps you’d just like some extra space as a little luxury. Imagine an additional bathroom in the loft purely for the adults of the house so you don’t have to share the family bathroom with teenagers. Or two bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom that can accommodate children or teenagers. Bliss!

It doesn’t all have to be about family. East London is a great place to work and run a business, and an east London attic conversion can give you the tools you need to work from home effectively.

Whether you’re a keen hobbyist, looking to turn a passion into a paycheck, self-employed or a successful business owner, having a dedicated home office or work space can really benefit your brand. Space is of a premium in east London. Whilst some will turn to cabins in their gardens, if you live in an East London home with just a small yard – such as some properties have in Newham – this isn’t an option. Extending upwards, however, is an excellent option and you can create a dedicated studio or home office within your loft.
