Building a loft conversion with space in mind
So, how can you make sure your loft conversion will be spacious? Well, you could consider:
- Increasing the head height- why not opt for a conversion like a Mansard conversion, or a hip to gable conversion to really increase the head height of your loft conversion and help to maximize space?
- Built in storage- take your loft conversion back into the inaccessible parts of the loft (where the roof is too low and sloping) and turn this into built in storage. Perfect for the Christmas tree and your family photo albums, or for use as wardrobes and draws for a new loft bedroom.
- Large windows- increasing the natural light in your loft conversion will increase the sense and feel of space in the room, even in loft conversions that are smaller.
- Using pocket doors- if you are going to add an ensuite, or have two separate rooms in the loft conversion, you might want to consider using a pocket door. This is a sliding door that slides into a compartment in the adjacent wall. This means you dont need to worry about floor space for a swinging hing door.
