Loft Conversion & Renovation
Lyminge Gardens, Wandsworth, London SW18

The Finished Conversion and Renovation in Wandsworth, LondonPenni Black Property Services started this project with a four bedroom Victorian house and a brief to modernise the house and to design and create a fifth bedroom through a loft conversion. The house was in quite good condition, however the electrics were in need of a rework and the roof shape required a bit of imagination in order to make the all important extra bedroom.

With such a grand house we wanted to renovate the property within keeping with the period, yet remain true to the brief of modernisation. We went for an 'open plan' approach to the downstairs to maximise on space and light.

The loft conversion was designed with space saving in mind, full of little presentation and storage details to deliver the ultimate five bedroom property.

The Entrance Hall

The Renovated Entrance Hall

The entrance hall was the start of the renovation, to set the tone for the rest of the ground floor. Neutral colours were introduced with natural wood flooring throughout. The whole house was re-wired with new sockets and fixtures. The skirting boards were replaced to restore the property to its former glory.

Open Plan Living

The Expanded Front Room

The front room was knocked through to join up with the dining room and kitchen in order to create more open space and deliver more light. The fireplace was replaced and customised storage units and shelving were added around the fireplace for subtle storage. Natural wood double doors were added to increase the sense of space.

The New Kitchen Area

With the open plan living approach the kitchen was now super light and spacious. A new kitchen was fitted with striking gloss red units with black work surfaces and brushed metal fixings. A new cooker and extractor hood were installed in complimenting colours, set off with the continuation of the neutral tones and wood flooring.

The Recessed Fridge / Freezer

In the dining area of the open plan living area there was ample space created for a dining table. The dining room continued the neutral colours, natural wood flooring and door plus a large fridge / freezer which complemented the cooker was installed in a purpose built recess.

The Guest Suite

The Guest Ensuite Bathroom

On the first floor the guest room was completely renovated to include new wiring, sockets, carpet and neutral walls. An ensuite bathroom was installed with a new modern which bathroom suite with charcoal tiles and metal fixtures and fittings.

The Loft Conversion

The Loft Conversion Takes Shape

Out of the whole project the loft would require the most creative genius, however due to the shape of the roof the property had a lot of potential for creativity. We wanted the loft conversion to blend in with the rest of the property without looking out of place.

The Master Bedroom

The loft conversion was designed to be a master bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The main bedroom was designed to be light and spacious, using natural light through the windows at the rear and the skylight at the front and ambiance light from recessed spot lights. Intuitive storage was integrated into the loft space through custom made draws.

The Ambient Entrance

The master bedroom was designed with unusual architecture which not only maximised on space but it also added character to the overall shape and layout. A diamond window was set into the front above the shaped entrance to the room for additional light and feature with inviting recessed lighting for ambiance.

Perfect Symmetry

On the opposite side to the entrance we designed a raised area as a feature, set back into the roof to add more of a feeling of space and symmetry. The recess was set off with a matching diamond window to compliment the window above the stairs.

The Ensuite Bathroom

The master bedroom was completed with an ensuite bathroom which featured a new modern bathroom suite with glass enclosed shower cubical. The ensuite bathroom was finished with natural tiles, neutral walls and metal fixtures and fittings.
