This was an efficient design to accommodate increasing suburban populations as people migrated to the cities. That being said there were also semi-detached and detached houses built too.

Converting The Loft In A Victorian Property
Victorian properties have beautifully proportioned rooms. However, many have been extended to cater to modern living. There are two ways to create more space. The first option involves extending outwards, but this takes up valuable outside space. Victorian loft conversions are a great option because they can be built within the existing roof space. There are also many opportunities to create a lot of usable space up there too.
Depending on the amount of available headroom and useable floorspace a dormer or mansard loft conversion will have the most potential to add space. However a straightforward Velux loft conversion may be possible.
Planning A Victorian Property Loft Conversion
Working with an experienced loft conversion company will ensure you get a considered plan. Victorian loft conversions are relatively straightforward, but there are some constraints and considerations that can influence design. In many cases there will be the requirement for some additional structural work to ensure compliance with building regulations. There may also be additional planning permissions to be obtained too, depending on the geographical location of the property.
If you are considering adding a loft bedroom then a good designer may be able to find ways to incorporate an en-suite bathroom, which could add more value to the finished property. Discussing your ideas with a professional can give you inspiration and find ways to get more from your budget.
