Lofts have always been used as storage space in a home, but if your attic is currently vacant maybe you have been thinking about how you can make the most of it. A loft conversion could be the perfect solution and will add value to your home, so it is an investment that is worth thinking about. If you are not sure what you would like to turn your loft into, why not explore the options below?
Probably the most common use of a loft conversion is turning it into an additional bedroom, whether you want to use it for guests who come to stay with you or because your family is growing. Loft bedrooms can look incredible with the right décor and skylights puts in, or you can add dormer windows if you want a bit of extra headroom. You could even add an en suite bathroom for a touch of luxury. You can speak to loft conversion specialists like this company who work on South London lofts for advice and quotes.
If your current bathroom is smaller than you would like it to be, but you do not want to extend your property to accommodate it, your loft could be the perfect place to put one. You will need to contact a plumber to see if they can connect your new bathroom to the rest of the plumbing system in your home. Again, make sure you get windows put in for better ventilation so your loft does not end up with issues of damp.
If you have had to work from home this last year and it does not look like you will be returning to your old office anytime soon, then setting up a dedicated workspace in your home will be necessary. Rather than working from your kitchen table, your loft could be transformed into a fantastic home office that could help you keep your work life separate from your home life a little bit easier.
If you have kids and are getting fed up with tripping over their toys, why not turn your office into a playroom for them to play in instead? They will love having the space to hang out with their friends, and it is also a perfect storage solution for all of their stuff which might help keep the rest of the house a little less cluttered. You can get them to choose how they want it to be decorated and fill it with fun and educational toys and books so they can stay entertained all afternoon.
If you are a lover of books but sometimes struggle to find a quiet corner to read in at home, perhaps transforming your loft into an idyllic library/reading room would be perfect for you? You can get bespoke bookshelves fitted to accommodate all of your favourites reads and put in a comfy armchair or sofa by a window to get the best light to read by during the day. Settle down with a cup of tea or coffee and get lost in your favourite novels for hours on end in your reader’s paradise.
There are plenty of things you can use a loft conversion for, and if you have been wondering what you can do with your vacant attic, perhaps these suggestions will inspire you.
