Loft conversions are a great option for many reasons. Not only do they add value to your home, but they also increase the usable space. So whether you want a new living room, home office, or more commonly, another bedroom, the loft conversion is the perfect choice. As long as it is thoughtfully planned and well executed. And here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are leading loft conversion experts. As a result, we have produced this guide to creating a loft bedroom.
Practicalities for loft conversions
Initially, you will need to consider the general practicalities for any loft conversion. This includes:
- the available head height
- the insulation necessary
- heating and electricity
- building and fire regulations
- staircase and loft accessibility
But if you want to use your loft conversion for a bedroom, there are some other considerations.
Creating a loft bedroom
The ideal loft bedroom will need:
- plenty of storage
- space to move around the bedroom
- natural light
If the head height in your loft space is limited, a loft bedroom can turn out to be cramped and uncomfortable. However, adding in a dormer window can open up some of the loft height, and make the room easier to use and more comfortable. And if you use the space under the window for your bed space, you wont have to worry about banging your head!
Built in furniture
If storage is a primary concern, why not think about converting the sides of the loft, where the ceiling is at its lowest point, into specially designed cupboards and drawers. This is a great option for loft conversions that wont be large enough for a traditional wardrobe. And you can hire a professional to produce top quality, built in, bespoke furniture, just for your conversion.
