But Where Will we Store the Suitcases?
What would we do without our lofts? Where else would we store our suitcases, our Christmas decorations, all those ‘things-we’ll-never-need-again-but-don’t-know-it-yet’.
You know, I know, everybody knows that a loft can be so much more:
- An extra bedroom
- And extra bathroom
- An office
- A Studio
- A playroom
- A teenager’s ‘space’.
Sloping ceilings, lack of light, ease of access can all seem like insurmountable problems but clever design can overcome them all. In fact, most of these ‘problems’ can become beautiful design features.
Sloping ceilings don’t mean that your floor space can’t be fully utilized. Spaces with low head height can be used for storage, floor to ceiling windows to let in lots of light, or as a space for the bath in a bathroom conversion.
Clever use of light colours on walls and clean, unfussy design can maximise a sense of light of space.
Access to the loft conversion can be tricky. If space is very tight think of a beautiful spiral staircase or, if there is space for a more traditional staircase, use the space under the stairs for a bookcase or cupboards.
Do think about what the conversion looks like from the outside of your house. A good designer will help you to ensure it is in keeping with the property as a whole. A good design can add 10%-20% to the value of your home.
It can be a truly cost effective way to extend your home when compared to having to move house for more space. With beautiful and effective design, it will enhance your property and your lifestyle for many years to come.
