Loft Type: Velux
Duration: 6 Weeks
About The Project
DJ Moore Lofts was recently contacted by a couple living in a stunning period house in a lovely location in Bedford. They were originally looking for their loft space to be converted into two new rooms; one spare bedroom to be used as a guest bedroom and one to be utilised as a home office which would mean less travelling from Bedford to London for our busy client. With this in mind we began to set out plans for a Velux loft conversion.
What We Did:
As soon as we shared our plans with the client, and the build began to take shape, the clients were thrilled to see how much space was available. The layout of the property meant that the loft space offered an excellent opportunity for a small en suite bathroom attached to the guest bedroom. When we suggested this to the client, they loved the idea and were onboard immediately. With the conversion still in its early stages, we added the en suite into our plans and got to work.
Predominantly not part of the client’s brief, we created a stunning bathroom with sleek, modern tiling, a double shower tray and a cloakroom with a toilet and basin. We were also able to install a top-hung Velux window within the en suite to allow ventilation and air to flow through the bathroom. The client was over the moon with their extra bathroom and it was a great addition to the new spare bedroom and home office.
We installed six of the SK06 Velux windows into the loft conversion, which created an incredibly bright and spacious feel to the new rooms. Due to the larger style of the SK06 Velux windows, a massive amount of natural light and fresh air is let into the room, which is perfect for a working environment.
From the beginning of the project, the client was very keen for the new stairs leading up to the loft to match perfectly with the pre-existing stairs to ensure they were in keeping with the rest of the house. Though this seemed like a difficult job due to the unique style of oak in the original stairs, we were confident that our stairs supplier Shaw Stairs would do a great job and they certainly did! The new stairs matched perfectly, and the clients were over the moon that we were able to fulfil their vision. We finished the stairs off with a clean white paint to match the walls of the new rooms and a gorgeous light grey carpet that perfectly reflected the fresh, open feel of the conversion.
The final result was a stunning new guest bedroom complete with an en suite and a spacious, airy new home office that the client will love spending time in.
"We are so pleased with how our new guest room and home office have turned out! The en suite wasn’t something we ever thought would be possible in our loft and we are over the moon with the result. DJ Moore Lofts offered exceptional service from start to finish and we would recommend them to anyone!"
