Loft conversions can add significant value to your property. You can add a whole new floor to your home and, potentially, a few rooms as well. You could have a guest bedroom, bathroom, and playroom upstairs. It all depends on the size of your loft and what you need out of it.
It’s important to clean out the loft and get a good look at the space. You can assess whether you have enough room and whether a dormer extension is needed. Hire a professional to take a look at the space and its measurements. They can offer their recommendation as well to ensure you’re making the best decision.
A loft conversion is a big renovation, and you need to think about it carefully. Here are a few ways you could use the extra space above your home.
You could create a master bedroom in the loft with an ensuite and Juliette balcony. Picture the scene: You can have a king-size bed and draped pendant lights on one side of the room. Your bespoke fitted wardrobes will store your clothing and keep it off the floor. On the other side, you can have a rolltop bath in a luxury ensuite bathroom. The bedroom and bathroom will be separated by a glassy pocket door that takes up hardly any space. You can open the French doors in the summer and enjoy the view from your rooftop bedroom. Sounds like a dream, right?
Many people are still working from home since the pandemic. There is a much higher demand for home offices – especially for those who enjoy working from home. It’s time to say goodbye to the desk tucked away in your bedroom. You could have an entire home office in the loft with a bookshelf, TV, sofa and lavish desk.
It’s important for the kids to have their own space as well. You can turn your dark loft into a bright playroom for the kids to play in. The floor can be an entire playmat equipped with all kinds of toys and train sets. As the kids get older, you can turn the playroom into a den for them to hang out in. They can play video games and hand out with their friends. You can keep the kids mess out of the way and maintain your oasis downstairs.
A home gym is perfect for those with busy lives. You can fit a workout in between meetings without needing to leave the house.
Turn your loft into a practical space for the entire family.
