Dormer Conversions Kidderminster

Dormer windows are a great way to provide more light and space to a loft, and the same as there are varied kinds of loft conversion in Kidderminster, there are also several types of dormers available. The most popular forms of dormer window styles are: eyebrow dormers, flat roof dormers, gable dormers, hipped dormers and shed dormers.

Eyebrow dormer windows can be really attractive in the right setting and comprise a curved roof atop a low, wide window, they've got no straight surfaces. Gable dormer windows are considered more appealing with straightforward pitched rooves more suited to period houses, gable dormers can also be known as gable fronted dormers ot dog-house dormers. Shed dormers resemble flat roof dormers, featuring a roof (on a single plane) inclined at an angle less than that of the house roof.

House Extension Kidderminster Worcestershire

Loft extensions are of course not the only way to add much needed living space to a home. Home extensions are possibly the most common approach to accomplish this. Space is a big issue when considering house extensions, not every property will have ample space to do this. They will also be dependent on gaining planning permission from the local council.

Extending your house is likely to be disruptive and will also increase the footprint of the property. Several issues need to be looked at before moving ahead with a house extension in Kidderminster, they include the likes of: nearby trees, access to the site, rights of way, the chances of flooding, soil conditions, shared walls and demand on services. The average cost of home extensions Kidderminster when writing this (2020) was around £1,500 and £2,200 per square meter. Click for Kidderminster Home Extension QUOTES

Cellar Conversion

Cellar/Basement Conversions

A cellar or basement conversion is yet another superb way to add further liveable space to your home. Needless to say this form of conversion can only be done on certain types of residence, generally older properties for example period or Victorian properties. A few post-war properties might also be suitable and if you're fortunate enough to have the luxury of a cellar, you should take full advantage of it? A cellar conversion does not only generate extra space but also help to solve problems with dampness. Quite a few home owners simply use their basements or cellars as dumping grounds (better known as storage!) for a selection of household rubbish, much like what people use their attics for. With some investment and effort you can actually convert your basement into a children's play room, a home cinema or a workshop. If you've got sufficient space a kitchen/diner or maybe even a self-contained flat are among the other potential options.
