Period properties built in the 1920s and 1930s make up one of the most common London loft conversions that our expert team at Simply Loft carry out, and it’s not hard to see why. Properties built in the 1920s tend to be much smaller than those built during other periods, so a loft conversion can not only help to add value to your property, but with the help of our team, your period terrace can be transformed into a much larger family home.
Generally, properties built in the 1920s and 1930s won’t require planning permission, unless you live in an area that has been listed as Grade 1 or 2 or in a conservation area, provided that certain conditions and building regulations are met.
When it comes to planning a loft conversion on your 1920s or 1930s home in London, dormer loft conversions to the rear of the property are the most popular and cost effective choice.
Standard Dormer Loft Conversions
A standard dormer loft conversion is very common for most home owners in London, particularly those looking to create more space in their period property. With these types of extensions, the roof structure is extended to increase the loft area and expand headroom and floor space. Velux windows are usually added to the sloping roof left at the front of the property to let light through to the other side of the dormer. Some clients who choose a dormer loft conversion will also like to add a Juliet balcony to the dormer to let extra light in. On most occasions where the loft conversion is being used for a bedroom, an ensuite bathroom will be also be installed usually in the space left behind the staircase access.
