If you are thinking of creating some additional space in your home, a loft conversion is a good choice. You can add different features in your loft to create a functional, appealing space. The features you include should meet your needs and match your personal style. Here are some of the ways to style your loft conversion.
1. Add a Spiral Staircase
One of the best ways to style a loft conversion is to include a spiral staircase. This kind of staircase adds some glamour to the loft space. A spiral staircase does not take as much space as a standard one. The staircase has to be gradual to make it easy for people to use it. Installing a spiral staircase also adds value to a home. If you have existing stairs, you can stack your new flight over them to reduce the amount of space used up.
2. Paint Walls and Ceilings in Same Color
Most loft conversions have sloping ceilings and walls and painting them in the same color gives you a perfect opportunity to highlight this aspect. You can also take advantage of close tints of the same color to create a modern space. Use paler shades to enhance the sensation of light in the loft conversion.
3. Put in Blinds
Blinds are a great way to ensure privacy in your loft conversation. Sliding blinds are particularly appropriate especially if they are built in because this makes the loft space appear neat. If you install some dormer windows, you should consider pull-down blinds or shutters.
4. Create Shelves
One of the best ways to get storage in a loft conversion is by creating shelves. Bespoke shelves are the best choice because they help you make the most of the space in your loft.
5. Layer Lighting
Layering your lighting helps you to create diverse effects in your loft conversion. Recessed lights work well on flat ceilings. You can also use some wall sconces to make the room brighter. If you are using the loft as an additional sleeping area, you should also include some bedside lights on the walls.
6. Use Flexible Furniture
Flexible furniture allows you to use a loft conversion for various purposes. For those who need additional sleeping space, a sofa-bed is a good example of a flexible piece of furniture that can be used for sitting and sleeping.
7. Soundproof Walls
Wooden floors are very popular among homeowners but when you are styling your loft conversion, you need to think about how much noise is transferred to the rooms below. Insulation can help to address this concern.
8. Install Rooflights
This is a great way to bring a lot more light into your loft conversion. You should make sure the roof lights are glazed to reduce the amount of heat absorbed or lost through the opening.
9. Provide En Suite Bathroom
This is essential if the loft will be used for sleeping or an office. An en suite bathroom makes it convenient, also adds to the property value of your home a little more because it’s an extra bathroom.
10. Board your Ceiling
To create a traditional look in your loft, you can board your ceiling. There are several affordable softwood boards to select from.
