Loft Conversion Stairs by Loft Conversions Kent
If you have plenty of downstairs floor space but could do with more bedrooms and bathrooms, then a loft conversion can be the perfect way to bring your home into proportion. Loft conversion building regulations cover matters of safety, including the strength of the floor, minimum headroom above the staircase, fire escapes, thermal efficiency, electrics, plumbing and glazing.
Staircase For Loft Conversions Kent Loft Conversion
When thinking about a loft conversion, don't forgot about the space needed for a staircase.
The higher the angle of the roof pitch, the higher the central head height is likely to be and if dormers are used or the roof is redesigned, the floor area and potential for comfortable headroom can be increased.
Kent Stairs Regulations
While the building regulations impose no minimum ceiling height for habitable rooms, you will need to factor in the 2m headroom required for stairs in your conversion. It's always important to think about how the stairs for your conversion will affect the bathroom and bedroom of your design.
The team at Loft Conversions Kent can tell you that traditional frame type roof structures are often the most suitable type for loft conversions, allowing the space to be opened up relatively easily and inexpensively.
