Loft Conversion Ideas
Loft Conversion Ideas
Lofts tend to be one of the most unloved areas of a home, generally used for storing Christmas decorations and things which you don’t really need but are just too good to throw away. But it doesn’t need to be like this!
A well-planned, stylish loft conversion is a very popular and cost-effective way to achieve extra living space as well as adding substantial value to your home.
Whether it’s an extra bedroom for a new family addition, a funky new playroom for the kids, an envy-inducing entertainment area or a contemporary work space you’re looking for, R&B Builders are here to help.
On this page, we’ve put together some handy design tips to help you convert your loft from a neglected storage space to a key part of your home.
Frame a View
One of the most attractive things about being high up in your property is the panoramic views you’ll now be getting from your new vantage point. Make sure the windows you choose are as big as possible to let in maximum light and to make the best of the view.
Make the most of Original Features
Oxford, Abingdon and the surrounding areas contain many stunning older properties. If you’re lucky enough to own a character property, take advantage of any exposed timber beams and brickwork to bring balance to any more modern interiors.
Loft conversions are very often used as extra bedrooms, but they can actually be anything you want them to be. You could choose to have a really spacious bathroom for example, or an extra lounge area.
Use Transparent Materials
By using as much glass and other transparent materials as you can throughout your new loft space, you’ll find that natural light will be able to flood in which in turn will boost the feeling of space.
Make a feature of the Stairs
Access to your new loft conversion – the staircase – will take up quite a big space on the floor below so it’s well worth aiming to make a feature of it. For example, a spiral staircase is great for space saving, and you could choose an ornate banister winding all the way up perhaps. Or, if it’s a standard diagonal set of stairs you’re having, why not install a cupboard or display unit underneath.
