New year, new home? You don’t have to move out of your loved home if you’re running out of room–why not convert your unused loft space and open up a new area to grow into?
Depending on what kind of space you convert your loft into, you could be adding between 21% and 24.5% to the resale value of your home should you eventually decide to sell, as well as gaining a nifty bit of extra room while you still live there.
Refresh Interiors is a family-run loft conversion specialist based in Hertfordshire. In this blog post, we’ve put together our top loft conversion ideas for 2020.
If your current family bathroom isn’t quite cutting it, you could treat yourself to the luxuriously large bathroom space you have always dreamed of. Turn your open loft space into a bathroom, shower or wet room with plenty of space.
You could take advantage of the sloped roof (should your house shape and roof itself permit it) and have a skylight put in so you can bathe in natural light.
Much like a home away from home, you can now enjoy an office away from the office. With plenty of area, you could work from home and have enough space for your own personal library.
A home office will allow you to work with no distractions, and with the option for natural lighting you may even notice increased productivity. Your own working space will be a positive step towards separating your home and working spaces for increased relaxation, and you won’t have to work crammed up on the dining table.
Decorating your converted loft space into a home office means you can make your working area as comfortable and welcoming as you like, compared to the harsh lighting and dull spaces you find in traditional offices.
Everyone dreams of a walk-in wardrobe, right? Why not make it a reality by converting your unloved loft and turn it into somewhere you want to spend time getting ready. Your bedroom floor-drobe will thank you too, with no more piles of clothes taking up space and causing tripping hazards.
As well as the high-end living you’ll experience with your own walk-in wardrobe and large closet space, you’ll also have an excuse to treat yourself to some new clothes.
Does your master bedroom feel a bit pokey at times? Your loft conversion could provide the perfect answer. Have the entire floor to yourself by moving your master suite to the top floor, complete with an ensuite bathroom.
There’s a lot you can do with all that additional floor space, from flexing your home decor muscles with carpets and rugs to having your dream reading nook or sofa space in your bedroom, far away from the hustle and bustle of downstairs.
It’s important to get some fresh air, particularly if you’re converting your loft space into a master bedroom or home office. Glass balconies and windows that turn into small balcony spaces are becoming increasingly popular with homeowners.
Make the most of the view you enjoy from the top of your property. For safety reasons, we recommend you don’t choose a balcony window if the room is being converted into a play area or child’s bedroom.
These are just a few ideas to get you thinking. Your loft conversion can be whatever you want it to be, you just have to get started! For more information on how Refresh Interiors can help you, get in contact today.
