A loft conversion is a great way to maximise space in your home. It increases the value of your property by up to 20%, can benefit from sunlight for most of the day and has an interesting ceiling shape.
The chances are that you already know what you want to use your loft conversion for, as most people convert their loft for a specific reason.
Whether that be a bedroom, study or even a bar, find out how to make the most of your conversion.
Think about what your home lacks
Have you got three children but only three bedrooms? Perhaps your daughter is soon to reach her teens and is getting fed up sharing with her brother. A loft conversion is a perfect way to add an extra bedroom to your property without extending out, which is more costly but still only adds 20% of value to your property.
If you work from home but find yourself trying to work from the dining table to no avail, how about using your loft for a study? The large windows often installed in loft conversions will promote lots of natural light and is an ideal working environment.
Do your measurements
Take measurements of the whole room and then measure any furniture that you’re planning on bringing upstairs. Check everything fits before you start lugging it up there.
If you measure the room, you’ll be able to work out where different pieces of furniture will work and how you can maximise the space by using built-in and fitted desks and storage solutions.
Customise your storage
Whatever you decide to use your loft conversion for, make sure you look into customised built-in storage. You’ll maximise your space if you use every part available and it will look stylish as well as functional. The wardrobe and drawers in this photo makes the most of the eaves.
Create the illusion of more space
White is a fantastic colour to help create the illusion that you have more space. Perfect for a study, use white on the walls and even the floors to open out a space and make it feel calming and welcoming to work in.
Now you know how to make the most of your loft conversion, go ahead and get started on your project.
