Velux Loft Conversions
Velux loft conversions are one of the simplest conversion types – we convert the interior of your roofspace and add windows to the roof itself. These windows follow the plane of the roof, and do not create extensions or protrusions.
A Velux loft conversion is an excellent way to convert your loft quickly, often without having to wait for planning permission. For the loft space to be usable, it’s important that you have plenty of headroom for this loft conversion as Velux loft conversions do not increase the headroom in any way. The minimum for any loft conversion is 2.3 meters at the highest point, but we usually suggest that you have slightly more to compensate for the sloping walls.
A Popular Choice
Velux loft conversions are also a popular choice for people living in conservation areas, as other loft conversion types are often prohibited. The rooms of a Velux loft conversion are extremely bright and airy due to the angle of the windows – they let in considerably more natural light than standard windows and offer more privacy within the room.
Velux Window Options
Velux windows come with a wide range of options. Blinds are purpose-made and come in a range of fabrics to suit the décor of your room. You can also opt for black-out blinds to ensure that the room is dark at night, and to maintain a cool room in summer.
Due to the angle of the window, it can cause issues if they’re left open in the rain. Electrical windows offer a solution; the sensors will detect rainfall and close the window if you are out of the house or elsewhere in the building.
