Loft conversion ideas: Transforming your attic with space saving trends
by
Checkatrade

We’re here to help you transform your attic space by enticing you with some inspiring loft conversion ideas. Often the loneliest and most mistreated space in your house, attics are the last places people think about when it comes to exciting renovations (despite the myriad of possibilities they offer).

Do you use your loft for idle storage, to win hide and seek, or to discard memorabilia from times gone by? If so, it might be time for a makeover.

Is your loft 2.2 metres or above at the midpoint? As long as the answer is yes, then you’re set to fulfil your attic’s dream of becoming a spare bedroom, bathroom, office or other supplementary space.

Have you got lofty ambitions and the time and money to invest in your property? Oh, that’s why you’re here? Fantastic. Then dust off your creative hat and slip on some designer boots, as we’re about to take you to new heights. (Renovationally speaking, of course).

Design ideas for small lofts

Loft conversion ideasWhether you turn it into your very own luxury shower room, a children’s play area, a private library, a handy spare bedroom, or anything else your heart desires, here are some tricks to use that space effectively.

Maximise your floor space

Maximising your floor space is the aim of the game. If you’ve opted to do the best you can with the original sloped roofs and open beams, then use a tape measure to figure out what area you’re working with.

Top tip: Use masking tape or chalk to mark out the areas you’d like to place your furniture. It helps to get a sense of what goes where and what dimensions to look for when buying items.

Perhaps there’s a perfect space to fit a single or double bed? How about a desk with in-built storage? What about a luxurious slipper bath where you can soak in peace and shut out the rest of the world (aka, other members of your household)?

Try to envisage exactly what the space can offer and set about making it a reality. Use our loft storage ideas to help you create a clutter-free haven.

Make use of the light

Whether you’ve chosen casement, balcony, eyebrow, gabled, roof or dormer windows, find the light and make use of it. Flooding your attic with morning sun is a beautiful way to wake up, whereas an evening view while you lounge on your sofa and sup on a nighttime tipple is a great way to end your day.

Corner storage

Got an awkward corner? No, you don’t; you’ve got storage capacity! Build shelves into the spaces you can’t get to easily for the perfect storage solutions.
