Are you designing a new loft conversion or renovating your existing one? Your loft conversion should be treated like any other room in your home, ensuring the space works for you and looks how you want it to. One of the most popular choices for loft conversions is using the space as an extra bedroom. There are endless ideas about what you can incorporate into your new bedroom area, and your designer can help you narrow those down to suit your needs perfectly. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some of the top loft bedroom trends we expect to see this year.
Want to ensure your bedroom is the perfect place to hibernate? Rustic designs are becoming more popular throughout the home with a contemporary twist that’s in keeping with modern living. We often see country style kitchen refurbishments, but why not ask your designer to come up with a similar look for the interiors of your new loft? This can include anything from exposed wooden beams and thick cream carpets to a freestanding bath in your en-suite.
It’s important your new loft doesn’t feel cramped which can often be the case when you try to pack too much into the area. If you’re working with a smaller loft conversion, try neutral colour schemes, innovative storage ideas, flush lighting and even a large dormer window to let in as much natural light as possible. Trends this year which will give you some ideas include Scandinavian style décor and furniture (which is all about a minimalistic feel), monochrome colour schemes and warm caramel and honey shades if you want a cosier feel without making the room feel darker.
With many using a loft conversion project as the ideal opportunity to design their ultimate bedroom, if you’ve got lots of space to play around with, you’ll love this trend. Far from just adding a bed, fitted wardrobes or dressing table, something we’re seeing emerge more and more is adding seating areas into the bedroom too. This is perfect for those who crave another space away from the home to relax (meaning your bedroom can double up as a cosy den area). It can even come in handy if your family is growing as the bed isn’t always the best place to deal with some of the challenges to come.
