Loft conversions come in various sizes, making their uses varied. If you have recently moved into a home with a loft conversion and arent sure what to do with it, keep reading. In our latest post, we take a look at the many uses for a loft conversion.
If your house is always buzzing and lively, it can be nice to have a room you can escape to and unwind. The loft is at the top of your house so is a naturally quieter area of your home, making it the perfect escape.
Your converted loft can make way for a second living room or snug which adds a new area to your home and utilises empty space that may otherwise be used to house unneeded junk.
Depending on the size of your loft, you may be able to house your master bedroom up in the eaves. As we’ve already mentioned, the height of your loft makes it a great way to escape the noise from ground level. The shape of your loft will also provide a unique layout and add character to the space.
To make your master bedroom really stand out, you could always add a balcony to the room, giving you extra space and a great place to eat breakfast.
Adding a second bathroom to your home is a great way to add value. Depending on the size of your loft, however, you may want to relocate your main bathroom to this area. Whilst the eaves can prove problematic in some cases, a bath will fit snugly underneath the sloping ceiling and additional furniture and storage can be cleverly added as necessary. You’ll find a plethora of made to measure storage options online.
To ensure you make the most out of the space, ensure you employ the skills of a professional designer or architect to help you plan the space.
Whilst understanding how much value a loft conversion could add to your home is important, changing your home is a very personal decision that may not come down to re-sale value at all. A converted loft has many uses and may well improve your lifestyle far beyond the cost.
