The oldest of the three Royal Boroughs, the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames in Southwest London includes the towns of Kingston, Surbiton, Chessington, New Malden and Tolworth.
Kingston is well known as a large retail centre, with numerous higher end shops, department stores and boutique shops along with many riverside bars, restaurants and cafes. An upmarket suburb, it boasts lots of green space and combines Victorian, Edwardian and 1930’s properties with riverside developments and new luxury houses and flats. Older Kingston properties are benefiting from more loft conversions as people look to extend their own characterful properties rather than look to move. Adding a loft conversion in Kingston to create an extra bedroom or two is a cheaper and less stressful option than the upheaval of a house move.
Surbiton is a busy commuter town, with large residential areas combining Art Deco properties, grand Victorian town houses and 20thCentury semi-detached dwellings. Many semi-detached properties in Surbiton are suitable for hip to gable loft conversions, allowing you to maximise your living space without your property standing out on the street as too different to the others. A hip to gable conversion in a larger loft space can be designed to accommodate two rooms, perhaps a bedroom and separate study space, as well as a small shower room or wet room.
Before carrying out a loft conversion in Kingston on Thames is pays to spend a little time thinking through exactly how you want the extra space to work for you. Perhaps you require an extra bedroom. Do you need the largest room your loft space can accommodate, or perhaps two separate rooms may be more useful to you in the long run.
A loft conversation can be the perfect opportunity to create the hobby room you have always desired, be it a light painting studio or art room, sewing room or even a dark room. Discuss your ideas with Abbey Lofts today and let us put them into practice for you.
