Where will I place the staircase for my hip to gable conversion?

Where will I place the staircase for my hip to gable conversion?

When considering a loft conversion design, the position of the staircase is one of the most significant decisions to make. With the help of our gifted architects, there are several options that could improve your existing upper floor layout and improve your new loft floor.

The first option is to install the staircase over the existing stairs. It saves space for your loft conversion and creates a symmetrical design that complements your existing home layout. It also minimises floor space taken up by the stairs without affecting headroom.

A second option is to position the stairs behind the chimney. It allows headroom for the staircase to come up off to the left. This means you have an extra space to convert your loft into an en-suite bedroom with a bathroom.
