At Taylor’d Loft Conversions, we aim to build a high quality loft conversion at your satisfaction.
In this blog, we would like to share the top 4 common mistakes people make during a loft conversion.
1. Poor design
The design of your loft can either go very well or terribly wrong. This is why you have to be very specific of the loft design and consult with a specialist for suggestions. You’ll need to make sure whether your loft is suitable for conversion, i.e. the height and size of the loft. If the loft has a big space, you can consider altering the space in to a study room or a relaxing tea room.
2. Not enough storage space
Many people often overlooked the amount of space their loft has and converts the loft straightaway before planning thoroughly. For example, if you’re considering to place large sized furnishings you’ll need to leave enough space to do so. It is important to not overload the furnishings in to your loft when there’s a lack of storage space.
3. Poor choice of contractor
It is a hassle and stressful if you select a poor quality and service contractor for your loft. Therefore, it is vital that you speak to and compare several contractors beforehand to see which company is the most beneficial to you. This would include pricing, length of the job process, years of experience, reputation and reviews, best yet is to get recommendation from friends and family. If you are not cautious, some companies may try to save on the materials during construction due to the expense of quality.
4. Poor insulation system
Getting too hot or extremely cold in the loft is not what you would like throughout the year. Hence it’s important to ensure your contractor installs a suitable insulation in the room. Otherwise the space will be unused and wasted.
