A dormer loft conversion is one of the most popular and cost-effective ways to maximise space in your home. By adding a box-shaped structure to the existing roof, a dormer conversion creates extra headroom and floor space. Dormer loft conversions are ideal for small areas where space needs to be maximised, and are a great choice for terraced home owners. Dormer construction is usually done on the rear of a property and is ideal for installing french doors or windows to maximise the amount of natural light in the attic area.
There are a few different types of dormer lofts available, with both flat and pitched roofs. There’s the classic flat roof dormer, which is exactly as it sounds; a dormer with a horizontally sitting roof,. Then there’s the shed dormer, which has a flat top and sloping slides. You could opt for the dog-house or gabled dormer, which looks like a classic house with an a-frame top, and is the most visually appealing version of a dormer loft extension. Finally, an L-shaped dormer, which is a hipped roof dormer with three sides. L-shaped dormers are a particularly popular choice for mid-terraced properties, as they wrap around the side and rear of the property.
Dormers are the most popular type of loft conversion, and for good reason. They are a fantastic way of adding headroom into a small or cramped attic area, while maintaining straight walls and flat ceilings. They are also one of the lowest cost options available for loft conversions, and will often fall under permitted development.
Pretty much any room with loft space and a pitched roof can have a dormer added, whether it’s detached, semi detached, terraced or a bungalow.
