When you feel you require more space in your property but don’t want the upheaval of moving house, a loft conversion is a great way to add an extra room to the home. If you think options are limited when it comes to how to use the space, think again. It’s important to plan early on in the process to help you design the ideal loft for your needs. Here are some of the best ideas for your new loft.
Adding a new bedroom to a property is one of the most popular reasons for choosing a loft conversion, giving your family more space. Not only that but you can use the opportunity to design a master suite that you’ve always craved with many incorporating an en-suite bathroom into the designs. Your specialist builder and designer will ensure everything from your lighting and storage to electricity, insulation and plumbing are considered.
More people than ever are choosing to work from home. Advances in technology and ease of communication means that many are opting to cut out the morning commute, face less interruptions and implement flexible working, benefitting both businesses and staff. Likewise, for those who are self-employed or run their own business, a good home office setup is essential. Choose a builder with design facilities so that they can work with you to incorporate all the features you need, including savvy storage ideas and a practical space for your desk and computer.
Some people think you shouldn’t choose a room for the new loft where a lot of noise will be made. However, thanks to specialist soundproofing services, you won’t have to worry about sound travelling through your property. For families who are musically minded, instruments can start to take up a lot of space around the house, so a dedicated music room is a great idea for a loft conversion.
With growing families, it can often feel like you’re living on top of one another with little time for your own space. Converting your loft into the ultimate den or teenage hangout area is a great way to keep everyone happy, creating a place in the home to get away from it all. Popular ideas include home cinema and entertainment system facilities, comfortable seating and mood lighting options.
With health and fitness becoming more popular, a home gym is the ideal option for those looking to save money and the hassle of a gym membership. Loft conversions give many the space and privacy they want, designing the setup for your requirements whether that’s the ultimate yoga studio or room for your exercise equipment. Work with your designer to implement your dream features, including mirrors, sound systems and even an in-built television for those motivational videos.
