How To Utilize Unused Loft Space

If you’re lucky enough to possess a large attic space in your home, you may have thought about converting it into a more usable space. Over the last few years, many of us have preferred to stay put instead of moving due to the challenging economy, but as families grow we find we need more space. There are numerous large home improvement projects we can try to increase the size of our houses, but converting the loft tends to be the more popular choice. And often the simplest.

Loft Conversion


Additional Bedroom

One of the most common ways to use the additional space is to create an extra bedroom. As the family grows, not having adequate bedroom space for kids places the highest demand on our homes, so converting this available space is the ideal solution. You will have to consider if you have adequate headroom when you renovate, and once you add in supports and flooring that space diminishes further. A bedroom needs proper storage of course, and sloping ceilings don’t tend to lend themselves to wardrobes so you may need to have the purpose built cupboards installed.

Kids Playroom

If you’re overrun by children’s toys and equipment in the rest of your home, or if your children are growing up and need somewhere to hang out with friends, then converting the area into a den or playroom is the perfect way to keep the disorder and noise tidily tucked away. If the kids’ bedrooms aren’t that spacious, and they want room for sleepovers, adding sofa beds and bean bags is an excellent solution, and your children will love their private resort.

Home Office

More of us are working from home nowadays, I included! And if, like me, you don’t have a dedicated office but do have an untouched attic, think if it would make a good workspace for you. Perhaps you’ve longed to start your own business and needed space to work. The loft could be the solution

Spare Room and En-Suite

If your living space is full, but you still need space for guests and overnight visitors, again, converting the attic into an extra room or possibly a further bathroom could be the answer. You’ll need to consult the experts if you’re going to fit a bathroom. Putting in stairs will impact the space on the floor underneath, and while there are many ways to do it, you’ll need to find one that is practical and works for you and your family.
