Types of Loft Conversion: Velux

Velux (roofline)

This style of loft conversion is appropriate for houses where the existing loft already provides adequate headroom, albeit for a smaller room, such as a single bedroom or a study. This option is less disruptive than a Dormer conversion and is less likely to require planning permission, although it is always advisable to check with your local authority. With their gently sloping roofs, Velux conversions retain some of the charm of being 'up in the eaves'.
