Everybody wants to make the most of their homes and the available space in them. If you’re planning to only convert part of your loft’s total footprint or have a small space to work with, here are some great space saving ideas so that you can enjoy everything your new loft has to offer.
Sliding doors aren’t typically seen in British houses, but they’re a great way to reduce the amount of space taken up by a door and means you can create smaller rooms within your loft conversion since you don’t need to account for the space necessary for the door to swing open and closed. This is perfect if you’re building a bedroom with an en-suite or would like to create cupboards but don’t want them to encroach on the living space.
Built in storage is one of the most important parts of saving space – it means that you can declutter the rooms and don’t need to sacrifice more floor space for cupboards or wardrobes. While you can build cupboards under the roofline in a loft conversion, you can also add them to the loft conversion stairs or even turn the stairs into drawers to really make the most of every new square inch.
Finally, multi-purpose furniture is a simple and easy way to make the most of your space. This can include sofa beds for rooms that are used as both a home office and guest bedroom (for example) or even more innovative approaches like tables that are secured to the wall. The best way to approach this is to decide the function of your rooms and see whether a single piece of furniture can achieve the same as 2-3 pieces – there are a lot of modular options available on the market to help you.
