A rear dormer is a window featured addition to the rear of the roof. A rear dormer will provide you with additional standing headspace, therefore adding to the larger feel of the room, as well provide better space for the staircase access in most cases. Dormers to the rear of a property are very popular due to their aesthetic appeal. They do not detract from the design of the front of the property.
L shaped dormer
The L-shaped dormer is increasingly popular on edwardian and Victorian properties across London. If the space permits, you can often fit up to two bedrooms and a bathroom across the entire top floor of the property, often reaching the maximum allowance of 40 cubic feet of space.
The Mansard is another common addition to Edwardian and Victorian homes, as well as more modern properties where the owner would like to add a bit of character, but at the same time maximise the space available, without the need to add a boxed dormer to the front of their property.
Hip to gable
The Hip-to-gable conversion extends the sloping side part of the roof (typically on an end of terrace or semi-detached property) out vertically, creating the gable, taking the wall all the way up to the ridge of the roof, adding significant height across the full width of the property.
Eaves / Velux
Eaves style loft conversions are the type we all know where we have to duck slightly as we walk around the room. They make use of the existing space, and benefit from the addition of roof windows, often called Velux, drawing in significant amounts of light. They are seen as the most cost effective to complete, and involve little external structural work if any at all.
