3 Unique Ideas for Your Loft Conversion
When many people think of loft conversions, they often picture an extra bedroom or perhaps a cosy den, which are both great ways to utilise your loft space. That doesn’t mean, however, that these are your only options when converting your loft.
By thinking outside the box, there are plenty of other useful spaces that you can create with a loft conversion. Here are our top three.
As we’ve emerged from the Coronavirus pandemic, so too has hybrid and remote working. With many people now finding themselves working from home either part or full time, having a dedicated working space is now in demand more than ever. Not only is this for convenience, but it is important to have a good balance between work and home life – with these being harder to achieve when the physical boundaries between the two cannot be separated.
A loft conversion makes for an ideal space to create a home office. It creates a dedicated area away from distractions, offering more privacy and a clear distinction between your working space and your living space.
For a productive and healthy working environment, natural light is a must. This is why it is a good idea to install a skylight window in your home office, encouraging as much sunlight to enter the room as possible.
If space in the bedroom is limited for you, then a loft conversion could be a great alternative to maximising your space when a home extension isn’t an option you can take.
By converting your loft into a dressing room, not only will you have a dedicated space for getting ready in the morning, with enough room to clearly store and organise your clothes, shoes and accessories, but this will also free up space in your bedroom, giving it a roomier feel that’s easier to walk around in.
If the loft space you’re working with allows for it, setting up a dressing table in front of a roof window also provides the perfect location for getting ready and doing any makeup in the morning, allowing natural light to enter the room without the obstruction of other houses blocking it.
Whether you’re a dedicated reader, or simply need somewhere to store your hoard of books, creating a personal library is an excellent way to utilise your loft space whilst freeing up space and storage elsewhere in your house.
We love the idea of having a little reading nook, complete with a comfy sofa to curl up on and read your favourite book in privacy – a sweet and simple form of self-indulgence.
To complete your personal library, we recommend installing a roof light, allowing sunlight to flood into the room during the day to create a warm and cosy atmosphere, while letting you read under the stars at night.
