If you need additional living space to cater for a growing family, converting your loft into an extra bedroom (or more, if your loft is spacious enough) is a very popular choice. Although necessity isn’t the only motivation behind turning a loft into a bedroom. Many homeowners are keen to utilise the space as a guest bedroom or even a bigger master bedroom that is perfectly designed for them. If possible, including an en suite is always a winning idea too!
For many people, working from home has gone from an occasional novelty to a permanent way of life over the past couple of years. If you are one of those whose house doubles as their workplace, a dedicated office space is vital in successfully separating your work life from your home life. Situating your office in your loft can give you a quiet area to work that is removed from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house.
Sick of dodging toys and sustaining lego-related injuries any time you enter your child’s bedroom? A separate playroom is the perfect way to contain the chaos. Having the playroom in the loft will also minimise the noise in other areas of the house – a much desired feature when your child’s favourite toy is also the loudest one!
The addition of a bathroom alongside an extra bedroom is common in loft conversion projects. But if you love nothing more than soaking for a few hours in a relaxing bubble bath, then dedicating your entire loft space to a luxury bathroom may be the perfect solution. A nice big bath, extravagant fittings, beautiful decor and anything else you require for a serene escape from life’s stresses. Sounds good to us!
Whether it’s a few kilometres on the treadmill, lifting some weights or a gruelling full body workout, a home gym in your loft offers a fantastic space in which to work up a sweat. The equipment will never be busy, you won’t get disturbed by other gym goers mid-rep and you’ll get to jump straight into your own shower afterwards. The perfect gym experience without even leaving your own house.
Install a massive TV or projector, hook it up to a surround sound system and get some comfortable seating – there you have it, your very own home cinema. Immerse yourself in your favourite movies from the comfort of your own home – and save a few quid by not having to shell out for popcorn at cinema prices!
