Bungalow loft conversions have become more and more popular in recent years as homeowners realise that converting a bungalow to incorporate another storey or rooms in the roof space is actually relatively simple.

Adding an extra bedroom, home office space or hobby room to a bungalow is a great way to increase its value as well as make it a much more spacious and family-friendly type of property. Most bungalows have plenty of headroom and readily lend themselves to the addition of stairs and roof windows.
