Creative Ways to Transform Your Loft Conversion

by | May 8, 2017 | DIY Tips, Home

For many homes, the loft area is a space that is often neglected and used for storing miscellaneous items such as Christmas decorations, old clothes and toys that you don’t need, but can’t bring yourself to throw away. Whilst this may be a good temporary solution, your loft space offers you a whole area that you can use to your advantage and introduce a whole new room to your home.

By converting your loft, not only are you opening up your home to more usable space, but you are also adding value to your property too! Here are a few really ideas for how you could transform your loft conversion.

Personal Home Gym

Going to the gym can often be a daunting, off-putting thought for many people, so adding your own personal, tailor made gym to your loft is perfect. By introducing a gym to your home, you can create a space that is equipped with specific training pieces, suited to your style of working out. Not only will you have the desired equipment, but you won’t have to worry about queuing to get onto a treadmill! You could also transform the space into a yoga or Pilates studio, which will be perfect when you need that little escape!

Mini Library

There’s nothing better than finding a quiet spot in the house to get caught up in a good book, but imagine if you had a whole room dedicated to your favourite literature. Introducing a library to your home is ideal for keeping your books stored in a neat, stylish manor, whilst also providing you with a space that you can use to switch off and read in. You can really make the most of this space by introducing some stylish arm chairs and a small coffee table to add character, as well as a practical touch. You can also create the perfect atmosphere within your library by introducing some yellow-toned lighting and candles, creating a warm and welcoming feel instantly.

Roof-Top Bedroom

Introducing an additional bedroom to your home is the perfect way to utilise the space you have, whilst also adding a significant amount of value to the property. There are many different ways you can adapt your current home layout to suit the idea of a bedroom in the loft area of your home, such as introducing some high-quality loft stairs, as well as keeping a balance with the décor to ensure you homes interiors flow smoothly throughout.

The loft space within your home can often hold lots of character and style, and it’s really important to try and keep this character present through your décor, to keep the room full of character. Rustic beams and slanted roofing can really help to make a room burst with character, and this style of architecture is very appealing to many when it comes to buying a property.

A Games Room

Sometimes, having a space dedicated to games is just what you need after a long, hard day at work. Whether you’re the type of person who loves to sit and play video games, or you’re more interested in a game of darts or table football, you can create a space for you and your family to enjoy and have some fun.

Games rooms are becoming more and more popular within homes today, due to benefits such as bringing the family together for some fun and games, or simply having a space to switch off and focus on your game with no distractions. You can really make the room work by adding some related posters or artwork, a selection of books and even some fun ornaments to add a bit more character to the room but still keep the theme present!
