A loft conversion is one of the best ways to increase the space available in your home. Often, people choose a loft conversion instead of moving to a new house when they are expecting a new baby, or when they need more rooms than their house currently offers. If you are attached to your home, a conversion is often a much better, not to mention cheaper and less disruptive option than moving to a new home. A loft conversion can also add value to your home and give you more options in the future.
If you are thinking about extending your home in this way and want some ideas on what to do with the extra space that you are about to get, here’s a look at some of the best.
Having a spare bedroom is always handy. It means that your kids can have more comfortable sleepovers, friends and family can stay over, and nights in with your friends can get a little more fun without anyone having to worry about driving home.
However, buying a house with an extra bedroom can be vastly more expensive, and many of us are only able to afford the number of rooms that we need. A loft conversion can therefore be an ideal alternative. If you head over to ckarchitecturalhull.co.uk, you can find some inspiration over at their project gallery which features some inspiring loft conversion ideas. The bedrooms designed by their architectural designers in Hull are beautiful spaces, with creative skylight designs to bring in as much natural light as possible.
Teens Hangout or Childs Playroom
House extensions can be ideal if your growing family needs more space to spread their wings. A loft conversion can go from a fun child’s playroom to a trendy teen hangout, growing with your child. You’ll just need to change entertainment and furniture to keep the space relevant to their changing needs.
At some point, the time often comes for us to start taking more care of our parents, and loft conversions can offer you an easy way to do it. Most older relatives would rather stay with family than live in a home and having them close can give you peace of mind.
Who doesn’t want a games room? Whether it’s console gaming, wargaming, tabletop games, or pool, having a games room at home gives you somewhere to relax and blow off steam. It could even save you money in the long-term.
Office or Workspace
More of us than ever are working from home or trying to launch a side hustle from home to earn more money. Having an office, or if you are a creative, an open workshop or space, can make this much easier. It’s easier to get organised, easier to work without distraction and easier to be creative and productive when you are separated from the rest of your home.
If you’ve already got a loft conversion that you’ve perhaps been using as a bedroom, but no longer need it to fit this purpose, you’ve still got the space. You can quite quickly turn it into one of these ideas or come up with a creative use of your own.
