4 Ways to Make the Most of Your Loft

June 25, 2014 12:36 pm

Loft conversions are a fantastic way to make the most of your space, but they can leave awkward angles and spaces where you just can’t fit furniture. There are some fantastic ways to take advantage of these spaces and turn them into useful storage of quirky spaces that add to the charm of the room.

Get Fitted Furniture

Fitted furniture is a fantastic way to make the most of your space while adding a professional and tidy finish to the room. Companies such as Northmark  create storage especially for loft conversions to make the most of the space.

Alternatively, you can add a walk in wardrobe to your bedroom loft conversion to help you find all of the outfits you’ve forgotten about and use the strange shapes that the roof makes.

Add Seating and Storage

Dormer loft conversions can add more usable floor space to your conversion, but it can be awkward to find ways to use this space. Turning these areas into seating let you make the most of the natural light coming in, and you can add even more storage underneath.

Use the Walls as Storage

Using shelves instead of walls gives you a wonderful feature and somewhere to store all the bits and pieces in the house that haven’t found a home (or outgrew their home). Bookshelves can deal with the awkward shapes of the roof without losing their impact, and are relatively easy to add to your conversion.

Solar Panels

As you’re already making changes to your roof, it’s often worth looking into solar panels too. If your roof fits the requirements and you have the budget to add them, you could lower your electricity bill or even start selling electricity back to your provider to make a small passive income.
