General loft, loft hatch and loft access information

Postby eowens90 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 7:13 pm

I'm looking for some general information about lofts to help me with a project but I can't find much online and I can't even visit friends and family to have a look at theirs so I would be grateful if anyone with experience of lofts you could enlighten me on the questions below:

- Do most houses have a loft?
- Where is the loft hatch usually located? (landing or bedrooms?)
- Is there usually a lot of space around the loft hatch? (i.e. is it usually located far from walls and doors?)
- Are loft hatches usually the same shape and size?
- Does the hatch usually open inwards or outwards?
- What is the most common method of accessing a loft? (portable ladder or ladder attached to the hatch?)
- Is the floor inside the loft usually flat? (or are there different height beams etc?)

Any help answering these questions would be much appreciated!

Hi eowens90
Houses with a pitched roof will have access to a loft area.
There is no definitive answer to your other questions - anything goes!
