Five Ways to Make the Most of Your Loft

When you hear the word “loft” or “attic”, you may picture a dusty room full of old furniture, photographs and Christmas decorations. However, with a loft conversion, you’ll have a cosy nook to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house. If you have a loft conversion in your home, you’ll know just how much the extra space can make a difference. There are many ways to take advantage of a loft conversion, but here are just five particularly popular options.

Home office

If you work from home, it’s important that you have a comfortable yet productive space to use as your office. With heaps of natural sunlight and the advantage of being away from your main living areas, a loft extension is a perfect place to base your home office. During the day, you can enjoy the quiet of your own personal study space away from any distractions such as your television, and in the evening you can close the door and appreciate some well-deserved downtime with your family.

Guest room

For families that love to entertain, having a comfortable guest room is a must. However, if you have limited space, this may not be an option. For this reason, loft conversions are a hugely popular option for houses with fewer rooms than desired. Simply add a bed, chest of drawers and some rugs to make a snug room that all guests will love.

Children’s play area

Are you running out of space to store your children’s toys, or don’t have room for your children’s friends to enjoy some after school play time? Consider converting your loft into a dedicated playroom and your children will love having their own space to keep their favourite books and toys. Not only will this give you a place to store their belongings (away from your pristine living room!), but it’ll also help you teach them valuable lessons about being responsible for their own mess.

Reading room

If you can’t think of anything better than curling up with a good book under a skylight, consider converting your loft space into a dedicated reading room. Make the most of your sloping walls by turning them into bookshelves or into a comfortable reading nook and clear the room of any distractions, such as televisions and computers, for an idyllic library room.

Yoga/meditation room

With hectic lifestyles and busy working lives, it’s no surprise that more and more people are beginning to practice yoga and meditation as a means of relaxation. If this is a big part of your lifestyle, consider the benefits of transforming your attic into a dedicated yoga and meditation sanctuary. Decorate with soft wooden flooring, neutral colours and lots of greenery for a room you can really escape in.
