Dormer Windows Hobart/Tas
One thing you will need to consider when taking on an attic conversion is whether you want to have natural light and how that will be let in. In most cases if you are converting the space for a habitable area then natural light is a must, alternatively if the converted space is going to be simply used for storage natural light is not necessary.
These are your options for letting natural light in:
- Dormer windows
- Normal windows
Dormer windows are a great way to increase the livable area, let natural light in and give the house a great external appearance.

Hobart/Tasmania Loft Ladders & Stairs
The two options available to access an attic room are stairs and ladders, both have their pros and cons.
Ladders are the most inexpensive option to access your attic but are much harder to climb especially for the elderly. Ladders take up much less space than stairs and you can even get a fold away ladder. In most cases ladders are only used if the area you are converting is only used to store things and people don’t frequently go up there.
Stairs are a great option if the converted space is going to be used as a habitable area as they make it much easier to get up there. Stairs do cost quite a bit more than ladders but will increase the properties value much more than a ladder.
If you would like more information on whether a ladder or stairs are better for your situation please fill out the form to the right and a Hobart attic conversion expert will be in touch to go through it with you.
