If you’re lacking space but happen to have a balcony which isn’t in use, it may be worth considering a conversion. 

You receive plenty of light in this space and, whilst being compact, you have your own room for your work. Not to mention this can give your office an amazing view! To begin converting, speak to a local structural engineer and builder.  

  • Use the Loft

Loft Conversion

A loft needn’t be a tight squeeze if laid out correctly. Make use of the entire room and keep the decor light and bright to make it look more spacious. 

Converting a loft is inexpensive and convenient as an working space; it privatises your office and separates you from the noise of the house. So if that space is going spare, why not take advantage of it? Speak to a local builder to begin converting.
