New Heights With Modern Loft Extension

This spacious loft conversion is now used as the master bedroom

When Benedicte Waaler wanted to create more space in the family home, she contacted Simply Loft and got a new master bedroom and en-suite in her mid-terraced house in Penge, south-east London.

Online research showed Simply Loft as a possible option. She says: “I knew the loft would be tricky to access, so I needed a company with creativity and vision to bring their dreams of a loft extension to life.

“Simply Loft provided a well-structured quote, which offered great value for money and a succinct overview of the project."


 “I went to five different loft conversion specialists looking for a company that provided me with a reasonable quote, clear timeframes and prompt responses. Simply Loft were by far the best of all those I contacted and from the beginning I placed my complete trust in them.”

Peace of mind

“Our project manager, Leigh, was great at communicating with us and completely put my mind at ease," continues Waaler. "I’d recommend him and his team to anyone looking to extend their loft and add value to their home.”



The converted loft space, which was originally used as storage became the master bedroom, with an en-suite. The old master bedroom is now a guest bedroom, with the old guest room becoming a playroom for Waaler's children. The addition of the en-suite has also meant family and friends now have a bathroom of their own when they come to stay.

Waaler adds: “The one time we did encounter an unavoidable issue, was when the structural designs were completed and revealed the need for a cranked steel beam. The team at Simply Loft were a delight to deal with on this issue and promptly resolved it for us. The work was completely seamless, and I couldn’t have asked for a better company to complete our renovation.”


Adding value

The main part of the build project took only eight weeks to complete, but with added style choices, including fitted wardrobes, the whole conversion was completed within three months.

Recently, Waaler had the property valued and discovered that the property price has increased by £100,000 since the family  bought the house four years previously. A new garden office was added in 2018 but Waaler believes that the loft conversion has undoubtedly increased the homes function, desirability, and value.
