Having extra space around the home is always ideal. If you have bought a house with a fantastic loft space, there is no doubt that you utilise it well. However, if it’s simply storing Christmas decorations, old furniture and keepsakes rather than serving a more worthwhile purpose, you could consider converting it. It is also highly suggested that your seasonal items like mentioned above should be stored in a storage facility to lessen clutter.
If you are looking to transform your attic into a practical space, here are some design ideas that you might like:
Create a new master bedroom
Converting a loft space into a master bedroom is a very popular idea. Not only will the extra bedroom add value to your home, but it will also provide you with the perfect tranquil space to escape to after a busy day.
When it comes to the design, don’t forget that under-eaves storage might make it harder for you to buy the wardrobes or drawers you want to store your belongings. Instead, consider fitted furniture that can be tailored to your exact needs.
Invite more natural light into a dark home using extra windows
Is your house particularly dark? Natural sunlight always makes a home feel lighter, brighter and more welcoming, so you could also consider opening up your top floor and loft space to let more light in with huge windows. If the windows are particularly large and heavy, gas struts will be able to assist you with opening them.
Add a new bathroom
Are your family always falling out over who spends the longest time in the bathroom? If so, an additional bathroom could be a great investment. If you don’t have loads of room, you can simply add another toilet and basin, but if there is space, an additional bath will provide you with a place to unwind.
Create a new home office
Working from home has now become the norm, with more and more people choosing to work from the comfort of their own living room or spare bedroom instead of heading into the office. With that in mind, transforming your loft space into a home office could be a great idea. It will provide you with a separate room to set up your desk, computer, chair and files, and at the end of the day, you will be able to close the door to it and simply relax in another room.
