High ceilings and large rooms make Victorian and Edwardian properties the perfect choice for a new loft conversion.

Your loft

We have a variety of different options to choose from, so it’s important to find the right solution that meets your needs. We recognise that you’ll want to retain the natural character of your property, which also will be a requirement of your local council too.

Realise your dream

If you’re looking for maximum space for your money, a dormer loft conversion is the choice for you. You’ll gain a potential two bedrooms and a shower rooms – an additional 40 cubic metres, which is the permitted maximum space. Whether you’re looking for a study or bedrooms, or even a luxury shower suite, we’ll help you to realise your dream.


  • Do you take care of planning permission and building regulations?

    Where we make the difference is in our service to you. We give you the peace of mind you need – taking all the responsibility of ensuring that all approvals, building regulations and planning permissions are met.

  • What conversion type is most suitable for my character property?

    L-shaped Dormer

    An ideal option if you’re looking to add two bedrooms plus a shower room. You can gain the maximum permitted space in your property. It gives you the opportunity to gain return on your investment as you’ll be able to legally change your property; adding two more bedrooms so that your property would now be five-bedroomed.

    L-shaped Mansard

    If the aesthetic look of your extension is important to you, this a great choice. This attractive build makes the most of the rear of your property, while all you see from the front are the new Velux windows. We add stairs from the landing to two new bedrooms and a shower room. Plus there’s also possibility to add a Juliette balcony with French doors.

    This particularly popular conversion style gives you the possibility to add two bedrooms and a shower room to your property. It’s also a preferred choice by several London boroughs. You’ll benefit from a larger bedroom with ensuite or a shower room to the front. At the back you could add an office or small bedroom. It’s an attractive option with Velux windows at the front, perhaps choose a Juliette balcony with French doors to the rear.

    Standard Mansard

    Our knowledge of London planning permission processes also means that we can tell you if your respective borough will permit a mansard loft with a bedroom and shower room. Here we use the full width of your property; making sure we match the side party walls with London Stock bricks. At the rear you’ll have a 70-degree angle slope, with French doors and windows; retaining the beautiful period look renowned in these properties.

    At Central Lofts & Extensions, you benefit from our extensive knowledge of planning permission. Which is why we’ll be able to let you know if your borough will permit you to add a mansard conversion. Using the full width of your property, you can add a master bedroom and a shower room. It’s an attractive option which will complement the style of your Edwardian or Victorian property. You can also choose to have a Juliette balcony and French doors to complete the finish.

    Town house double mansard

    There is so much potential to be gained from this style of loft conversion – which is probably the reason that we particularly enjoy this style of project. If you have an Edwardian or Victorian property in London or the M25, this style will create an entirely new floor for your home – almost identical to the size of your other floors. A perfect space to add either one or two new bedrooms and a luxurious shower or bathroom.
