Loft Conversion ideas – How to create more living space in your home




Loft spaces for so many homes in the UK are forgotten spaces, closed off with a loft hatch and left in complete darkness. We suggest that you shine a light on this underused space and transform it into a brand new beautiful living space, now more than ever the possibilities may just surprise you.


Is your Loft space suitable


Not all Loft spaces are actually suitable to convert, so its important that we can establish this first. Ideally your loft should be 2.2m or higher at the mid-point. If yours is lower, you might want to reassess your options. There’s no minimum room height dictated by building regulations, but there is for staircases and access. A workaround is lowering the ceiling in the room below – you’ll have to fit a new floor in the loft as part of the conversion, so this isn’t as drastic a project as it sounds.

We also need to consider anything else that is currently in your loft, chimney stacks, water tanks and large obstacles.


1. Quiet lounge retreat reading area


A special quiet place to relax and unwind that away from the noise, complete with a comfortable sofa that you could maybe nap on and of course a special reading chair for that favourite book you have on the go right now.


2. An upstairs kitchen?


We know, a kitchen in the loft! No we haven’t gone crazy) but there are instances where a kitchen in your loft might be appropriate. A self contained flat or maybe you want to totally transform teh layout of your house, or a dedicated work space for a professional chef/baker.

Remember we said that the options are endless.


3. A upscale boutique bedroom


Transform your loft into a very special boutique style bedroom, with large open windows that allow light to pour in and wake you up each morning. A free standing bath adds that touch of luxury especially when you place it near (or directly underneath) a window.


4. A home office with ample storage


Working from home now is becoming the new norm with more and more companies encouraging remote working. Why not transform your loft into a dedicated work space tailored to your exact needs. And with no wasted space under the sloping eaves as there are many ways to utilise such space with clever storage solutions.


5. Children’s bedrooms and play space


A very popular choice is to convert the loft into either into two bedrooms or one bedroom and then a dedicated play room. A perfect way to create another bedroom in your home and have all the toys up and out of the main part of the home. Not to mention that the play room can be easily converted years later into another bedroom, bathroom or home office once the children have grown up.
