However, even though transforming your attic is a worthwhile investment, it’s equally stressful to choose a loft conversion idea that matches your current home design. In this read, we are going to look at the different types of loft conversions or extensions. 

The Hip to Gable

This is a loft conversion usually done on roofs with more than two slopes, thus making it ideal for semi-detached or detached homes with hipped roofs. This kind of loft extension will extend the ridge line of a hipped roof, therefore swapping the sloping roof with a gable wall that’s perpendicular to the overall height of the property. The outcome is, of course, increased space which ideally allows for the addition of a staircase. You can use this conversion as a study room, a bedroom, a lounge space or even as an entertainment room.
