Connect your inside/outside spacesA very popular use of levels to enhance the sense of space in a kitchen/dining extension is to run the interior floor level through to an outside terrace or decked area with steps down to the garden.Along with these matching levels, the use of folding/sliding doors has become very popular and glass-door companies have devised weatherproof details for the thresholds so that the matching levels do not cause any weathering problems.

Go for more space insideInstead of a pitched-roof dormer, choosing a flat-roofed dormer, as can be seen on the side of this house, will give you more headroom and volume inside. Flat-roofed dormers also tend to be cheaper to construct and, as such, are more frequently used than pitched-roof dormers.

Tugman Studio added this to How the Right Stairs Could be the Key to a Successful Loft Conversion13 September 2016

Work outside-in as well as inside-outThis generous loft conversion looks simple enough from the outside, but the key to creating the best possible space for the loft room internally was in the positioning of the staircase, and it was a modification to the external design that allowed this. Only just visible in the top left of the picture, behind the chimney, is a strategically positioned dormer, which allows headroom for the staircase to come up off to the left. This leaves the best of the converted loft space for the new master bedroom and en suite bathroom.
