Dormer loft conversions are a form of loft conversion which extend outwards in a box from the pre-existing roof. Dormer conversions will add vertical windows into their design. Internally they provide a significant amount of additional room space as the vertical walls create the largest amount of space possible.

Internally, dormer windows lend themselves to window seats or can offer extra little nooks for further storage. Dormer windows are very popular as they generally don’t require planning permission. Dormer loft conversions are likely to be covered under permitted development rights, but it is advisable to worth verifying with your local authority as rules on size or style can apply in a few areas.
