For growing families or those who require a home office, extending into the loft is a more cost effective way to increase space in the home, as opposed to relocating. With unusual layouts and slanted ceilings, it can be quite difficult to know how to furnish and decorate your new loft conversion. Not to worry; we are here to help you make the most of your new space with some top tips.
- White Paint
If you’re a parent of young children, you probably don’t give white paint much thought. After all, it’s likely to get covered in crayon and sticky hand prints. However, it’s a great option if you want to create the illusion of space in a small room. It reflects the light and makes it feel less oppressive. Carefully placed mirrors also have the same effect.
Rather than using various different types of furniture that take up a lot of floor space, such as a chest of drawers and bedside cabinet, it’s worth considering installing wall shelves in your loft conversion. They are great for storage and don’t take up as much room as bulky furniture.
- Underfloor Heating
One of the main benefits of underfloor heating, aside from being a lot more energy efficient than conventional heating, is that they don’t take up any space in the room. What’s more, they are very easy to install.
- Custom Furniture
Although slightly more expensive, investing in custom furniture is a great way to use every inch of the space in your loft. This is because it’s made to fit all of the nooks and crannies in the room! After spending so much time, effort and money on having your loft converted, it’s worth getting the right furniture and décor to make the most of the space.
