Loft conversion staircases

The staircase is the most important element of a loft conversion. Each of these staircases are bespoke. Hand made by joiners from my measurements. They are to match your existing staircase and decor.

Is my loft suitable for a conversion?

Most lofts are suitable for conversion

You can check yourself by measuring the floor of your loft to the apex of your roof and this measurement is more than 7ft 6″ (2.3 metres, 90″ or 230cms) then you have a good chance of gaining the extra space you require. A consultation visit is FREE, I can help you with a ball park figure and ideas of how to get maximum space for your conversion.

Please email me through this contact form to organise a suitable time for me to pop round.

Will my loft conversion require planning permission ?

It may do if your house is in a conservation area

Most lofts don’t need planning permission. Have a look at this government planning portal website. If planning permission is needed, my architectural services team will be able to advise you. The roof of this house was extended considerably and did not require any planning permission.

How long does a loft conversion take Brighton?

A loft conversion takes between 6 to 8 weeks to build

I am always asked this question and of course it varies on the size of your house. If it were an average, 3 bedroom terraced house, a Dormer loft conversion including a master bedroom and with an en-suite bathroom, this would take between 6 to 8 weeks.
