Are there any additional benefits to extending under Permitted Development?PD often gives you greater scope to carry out a loft conversion compared to a full planning application.“Under their homeowner design guidelines, local authorities will often make you step any dormer additions in from the sides, eaves and ridge line, greatly reducing the usable internal space and head room,” James says. “By contrast, under Permitted Development, as long as the external volume increase is within stipulated limits [see Andrew’s comment, above] then the width and form of the dormer is not restricted,” he says.

Highlight shapesHere, a simple grid of shelves under the sloped roof is perfect for storing books, baskets and knick-knacks. By painting it blue, the designers have turned it into a handsome feature in the room. The wall of squares look great against the diagonal ceiling, while the circular rug adds soft curves to the straight edges.Planning a loft conversion? Here are some ideas to suit your budget

Convert and extendA loft ‘extension’ is where the loft space is enlarged – most commonly with the addition of a dormer window.Instead of a roof window, which slopes with the roof, a dormer window is an external construction that forms a vertical wall into which a window can be built, with side ‘cheeks’ and a little roof of its own, as pictured here.Dormers do not enlarge the floor area as such, but the effect of them is to create more internal height and volume, meaning that in areas that would otherwise be too low to stand up in, you can have much more usable space.Make the challenge of finding the right people for your project easier by searching the Houzz Professionals Directory.

Do I need to consider Building Regulations? Irrespective of whether you need planning permission, loft conversions always need approval under Building Regulations. These make sure that any work completed is structurally sound, that the new room is fire safe and that there is sound insulation between the floors.Building Regulations also state that in the interest of fire safety, a staircase serving the new room is required. Retractable ladders are not normally acceptable. If space is tight, however, it may be possible to install a space-saving staircase.Find out about getting the right stairs for your loft conversion

Part-width dormer conversionSometimes, full-width dormers are not practical or desired. It could be that the appropriate Planning Permission may not be achievable, or simply that the homeowner doesn’t like larger dormers and prefers them smaller, the width of a window or perhaps French windows.So if a full-width dormer is not possible, but more headroom is needed, why not create a dormer around a window? As you can see here, you’ll gain a full-height space across the width of the window.This style will retain most of the roof’s original shape, inside and out. However, this kind of dormer will add the least amount of additional full-height floor space.See 10 ways to make the most of those tricky spaces in your loft
