Storage in the home is a benefit that is often taken for granted and not realised until it is too late. The garage, a shed and cupboards can only hold so many items which is why more and more people are looking at ways to maximise space in their homes.
Given that a self-storage facility is not always a viable option for some people, our team at Incredible Bulk Self Storage Bradford wanted to put together a helpful article highlighting how a simple loft conversion can be the answer you have all been looking for.
Whether you want more living space, extra storage space or something unique, the extra area within a loft is always on hand to provide additional space as can be seen by the below suggestions;
One of the most common ideas is to make the loft a bedroom. Making a loft into a bedroom is especially popular in smaller houses because of the limited space. By getting an extra bedroom in the attic you can create much more space within your home.
Multifunctional bedroom furniture provides another way to store your possessions with an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach.
Some basic browsing online will show furniture that specialises in hidden storage such as beds, shelving and more.
Cozy living room
Another popular small loft idea is to extend the living room by converting the loft into a second living room area. This separate living room is an excellent option for families with older children as it provides moody teenagers with their own space.
Like most small loft ideas, multifunctional furniture will be your best friend here as well.
Working from home has become more and more popular in recent years.
A loft office is also the perfect place for a productive work environment in the home as it is usually away from everything else giving more chance to focus and plough through work without any distractions.
One of the most important things to remember when planning your loft is the right light source.
Depending on the type and amount of light in your loft, this can affect your level of productivity.
Natural light is always best for promoting productivity. Large velux windows can help the space to feel larger and make it a more efficient work surface.
A stylish ceiling is also a popular way to spruce up the working environment. Wooden beams on display can show off the character of a property and actually help with productivity.
They provide flexibility in terms of function and keep all space open and therefore create the illusion of more space. We hope these ideas give you inspiration!
