Taking its name from esteemed 17th-century architect, Francois Mansart, mansard loft conversions represent one of the best means of making available a wide expanse of space in your attic. While other conversions may entail less construction work to complete, it is the quantity of space that can be added by a mansard loft conversion that makes it such an enviable addition to any home.
With mansard loft conversions from Bluelime Home Design in Dartford, Bexley, Erith, Croydon, Blackheath, Greenwich, Lewisham, Dulwich and Bromley, homeowners across the south east have the opportunity to significantly increase living space in their home, as well as increase the resale value of their home significantly.
What is a mansard loft conversion?
Many loft conversions – such as a hip and gable option – require only minimal amounts of construction. With a mansard loft conversion, however, the work necessary is more substantial, but the rewards are even more significant. Mansard loft extensions typically involve increasing space across the full expanse of the property, often transforming sloping roofs to a near vertical side.
With construction of a mansard loft conversion entailing substantial building work, it’ll be no surprise to learn that planning permission is almost always required for such a project. The team at Bluelime Home Design are experienced in helping homeowners secure the necessary planning permission, and this entails both the drawing up of suitable plans, to the submissions of applications and liaising with the relevant parties throughout the whole process.
Mansard loft suitability
Mansard loft conversions are prominent in urban regions, with many properties across Kent and London featuring such work. Due to the nature of the build, however, mansard loft conversions are suitable for most homes, whether bungalow, terraced, detached, or semi-detached.
Of course, the suitability of a mansard loft conversion is not only dependent on your property, but also your budget.
