A loft conversion is a great way to add some extra space to your home. If your loft is simply used as a dumping ground for all of your junk and unused possessions, you may find yourself wondering how you can make best use of this space. Below, we take a look at four loft conversion ideas to turn your unused loft into a usable space.
Everyone needs somewhere quiet and out of the way to work, particularly if you live in a busy house with your family. Turning your unused loft into an office space will provide you with a peaceful room to work in. No one works well in a dark or dingy space, so it’s important that your home office has plenty of light in order to maximise productivity. Steer clear of black-out blinds and dark paint, and instead opt for light colours and neutral shades.
If you constantly find yourself queueing up for the bathroom or want extra space for a big bath, converting your loft into a stylish bathroom is a good idea. A freestanding bath looks particularly stylish placed under a low loft ceiling, and the loft is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Alternatively, why not turn your loft into a practical shower room? You’ll need to make sure that you have enough headroom for a shower, but transforming your loft into a wet room is a great way to make use of the space.
Whether your family is growing or you simply want a spare room for when you have guests to stay, converting your loft into a new bedroom is a great way to create some additional space. Loft bedrooms are particularly cosy and make the perfect space to chill out. Plus, it’s out of the way of the kids downstairs!
Finding space and storage for all of your clothes can be difficult, particularly if you’re tight on space. Instead of cramming all of your clothes into your bedroom wardrobe or stuffing them into drawers, why not convert your loft into a walk-in wardrobe? Utilising clothes racks and open wardrobes can help you save space – and who doesn’t want a private area for all of their favourite outfits and accessories?!
