Some of our favourite Ideabooks on homify are those which tell one story from the outside and reveal another inside.

Located in Richmond, where each available square metre of building space counts, we find a stellar L-shaped dormer conversion has taken place inside this brown brick frontage home. You'll really be surprised by what's inside.

Let's take a look…

An unassuming exterior

What appears as a typical brick façade reveals nothing from the exterior about the treasures that are holed up inside. Nuspace are experts in masking dormer extensions, as evidenced in their portfolio of work.

Given that in most English suburbs the council requirements are fairly strict, it is great for homeowners to know that there is a way to politely extend their homes without disturbing the look and feel of the exterior or heritage of the building.

Once inside, we were surprised, as we assume you are, to see such a stark, white interior. A carefully balanced monochromatic colour scheme reigns supreme, allowing the space to feel large without sacrificing on style. 

Though the bed fills the majority of the room, the positioning of both the windows and furniture is optimum to maintain a feeling of light and spaciousness.

On the other side of the bedroom loft space is a small nook and, though tapered in size, has been filled with a tallboy, chair and mirror to ensure the occupants are comfortable and have their storage needs met.

The large window floods the room with light, radiating it back into the bedroom area to keep it feeling bright.

Spacious walk-in shower

The shower is also modern and sleek, tied nicely together with charcoal grey tiles and pale grey walls. A monochromatic colour scheme can also be seen in the bathroom, helping to create a dialogue between the new rooms of the renovated loft.

To keep the room from feeling cramped and dark, the walls of the shower are made from glass to ensure that every inch remains illuminated. There is even a frosted glass window positioned to the right, meaning the space can be adequately ventilated once a steamy shower session has finished.

Last but definitely not least, we see the final corner of the dormer conversion, which has been cleverly filled with a toilet and handbasin. By keeping the fittings, fixtures and decorations simple, this space does not feel cramped and claustrophobic. Again, with access to a large window, the toilet area can stay free of mould and odours.
