Combining a loggia with a room - the best ideas for a functional redevelopment of an apartment

You are thinking about whether it is necessary to combine the loggia with the room, and in order to make a decision, it is important to evaluate all the existing advantages and disadvantages. Work through the project in advance, taking into account all the details, so that the result does not disappoint and meets all the requirements.

Is it worth it to combine a loggia with a room?

To understand whether it is worth deciding on redevelopment, you should familiarize yourself with the existing advantages. By removing the wall, you can increase the living space, which is especially important for one- and two-room apartments. Other benefits of the merger include increased property value, additional natural light, and a wide range of design choices. It is important to know the existing requirements for combining a loggia with a room:

  1. First you should find out if the wall in the balcony opening is a carrier, because if so, then it cannot be completely demolished and it will only be possible to remove the door and window.
  2. Balcony glazing should be carried out and ideally it is better to remove the windows on the sides. For ventilation, leave one opening sash.
  3. Combining a loggia with a room implies the obligatory insulation of all surfaces: floors, ceilings and walls.
  4. Consider additional heating, so if you do not plan to carry the radiator, you can use a hinged convector, an oil radiator, or put a warm floor.
  5. If you plan to use a lot of furniture, then it is recommended to install props from the wall to the edge of the balcony concrete slab in the form of a triangle.

It’s just not possible to combine a loggia with a room, because you need to get permission from the BTI. To legalize operations, you need to collect a package of documents, for example, permission from the housing inspection and a project agreed with the design organization. First, at the BTI, you need to take a technical passport and order a project from the appropriate organization. All work must be approved by the Housing Inspectorate. When the dismantling is completed, a commission will be invited to evaluate and draw up an act on the completion of work. Take the received document to the BTI to reissue the registration certificate.

It remains to pay attention to the existing shortcomings, which are important to consider in order to understand whether redevelopment is worth it or not.

  1. It has already been mentioned that you will have to spend a lot of time and effort in order to draw up documents.
  2. The combined loggia will require financial costs, since additional repairs will need to be carried out. In addition, few people will be able to independently master the work, so you will have to hire specialists.
  3. Things that were previously stored on the loggia will have to be moved somewhere, and this may cause problems.
