It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

When undertaking a full loft conversion there are many things you will need to carefully consider. First things first – what do you want to get out of your new room and what will it be used for? e.g. storage, home office, gym, playroom, additional bedroom etc. Things to which you need to give thought – styles of staircases (like spiral staircases), roof domes, roof windows, insulation, heating and most importantly, planning permission.

If you’re turning your loft conversion into a bedroom, then you’ll need to consider installing a staircase. Where possible, stacking the new staircase over the main existing staircase is usually the best option. Where space is especially tight, a spiral staircase can sometimes be a better choice.

Roof windows can also provide an escape route in the event of a fire in the property. Most loft conversion companies will supply this service or there are many independent contractors that will carry out this job for you
