If you happen to be something of a do-it-yourself aficionado you might even think about opting for what's known as a shell loft conversion. Also sometimes called first-fix loft conversion, this is where the main structural work is undertaken, for instance roofing work, stairs, steelwork, windows/skylights, dormers/mansard and joists.

Loft conversions are not so bad as nearly all of the structural work can be accomplished working from scaffolding externally. Therefore you will endure much less disruption on the inside of your property than you would in the case of an extension or similar. There should also be a lot less dust and mess on the interior, which means you're able to pretty much continue your way of life as normal while the work goes on.

By far the most economical and least disruptive type of loft conversion is a "roof light conversion", whereby you don't need to alter the angle or shape of your roof. Instead, it's solely a case of fitting stairs for access, installing an appropriate floor, and putting in skylight windows. Only lofts which currently have sufficient roof space and don't need extending, are suitable for roof light loft conversions.
