5 Inspirational Ideas for Your Loft Conversion

Monday, February 29, 2016

According to estate agents, a loft conversion can increase the value of your home by between ten and twenty per cent. If you have redundant space in the attic, opening it up can give you more versatility. Renovation work also creates a unique selling point if you choose to move to pastures new. Here are 5 inspirational ideas to help you pull of an incredible transformation.

An extra bedroom

Whether you’ve got kids sharing a room or you’re eager to cater for overnight visitors, an extra bedroom in the loft can be both handy and lucrative. Minimalistic New York studio styles are popular with teenagers. Country style fabrics work well with exposed beams for adult guests. If the roof is apexed, position the bed in the centre and line the walls with low-level chests for storage. Add plants, tripod lamps and wall art over the bed for a modern feel. Throws, an antique mirror and a vintage chair are the perfect accessories for a boutique hotel vibe.

A study

Away from the hustle and bustle of the kitchen and living rooms, loft space provides a tranquil setting for a study. Keep walls neutral to create the illusion of more space and add splashes of colour with a bright lamp and a desk chair. For a quirky edge, add a hanging chair or a chaise longue.

A studio

If you are an artist, a seamstress, a designer or a wordsmith, you could adapt your loft space to create a bespoke studio. Add skylights to let natural light flow in and bring muted decor alive with wall art or a feature wall. Printed wallpaper is a popular choice. Tailor your studio to suit your line of work and create an environment, in which you feel comfortable, relaxed and inspired. Search for ideas and get those creative juices flowing. Look at designs on the Internet and visit sites such as milliondollarmakeovers.net.au.

Games room

If you have older children who like to have friends around, a games room is an excellent addition to the home. According to experts at https://www.realhomesmagazine.co.uk/ an extra room will appeal to a mass market. Creating a new room will give your teens space to chill out with friends, watch films and play pool and table tennis. It also means that your living spaces downstairs will be free of games consoles, wires and noise. If you have space, you could make an open plan bedroom, which incorporates a seating and games area.

TV room

Not everyone has the same taste in television programmes and an extra TV room or snug can ensure you can all enjoy a relaxing evening without any fights over the remote control. Sofas, bean bags and floor cushions create a cool, comfy space.

Are you struggling for space with an expanding family? Are you eager to make the most of the entire house? If so, there’s so much you can do with a loft conversion. These ideas will hopefully help to get you thinking about designs and investment opportunities. If you do decide to go ahead and convert your attic, get a number of quotes before you make a decision.
