If you’re planning a loft conversion, you probably already have an idea as to how you’d like to use the space. But if you’re extending the home for selling purposes, you might not know the best way to utilize the space.
Plus, the attic often has a lot more space than you realize, meaning you might need a few extra ideas to help fill it.
Well, this article is highlighting a few ways to use a loft conversion that you might not have thought of.
An extra bathroom
A new bedroom is a common reason people look to convert the loft. But to add even more value, that bedroom could have its own en-suite.
An en-suite and bedroom in the attic are perfect for those looking to make money while at home. With enough space, the loft could be posted on Airbnb for professionals or travelers to use while in the area.
They also make a great option for older kids as it gives them more privacy and independence.
Alternatively, you could dedicate the whole loft to a bathroom. A huge bathroom on the top floor could be the perfect little sanctuary you need after a long day. In a family home, there’s always a need for an extra bathroom, but this luxurious new room could be solely for a long soak and a pamper.
A home gym
If you’re the type that loves a good stretch in the morning, a bright and airy loft will be the perfect place for your sun salutations. While it’s probably not a good idea to throw some heavy-weight equipment into the top of the house, a few cardio pieces could work just fine.
A home gym doesn’t have to eat into the whole new space either. The loft could be split in half to create a home office and gym next to one another. To find out the options available to you, head to Touchstone Lofts at Touchstonelofts.co.uk.
Hobby or games room
Children and big kids alike need space to enjoy their downtime. And if you don’t want to stand on LEGO to be a constant reminder that you need to tidy up, why not move it all to the loft? The loft creates a great place for kids to play with all their toys or for adults to enjoy a bit of crafting. Plus, down on the ground floor, you can continue to do as you please without the added distraction or noise.
A home cinema
While everyone can clamber together to enjoy a film on the telly in the living room, there might be a time where you want to make things feel a little more special. People up and down the country have used the lockdown to create their own version of the home cinema, and a loft conversion is a perfect way to do it. Touchstone Lofts could help you create a fully insulated, soundproof room to enjoy surround sound, popcorn, and superhero films. Just take a look at some of these home cinema ideas for inspiration.
Hopefully, this list has given you the inspiration you need to make your loft work for you and your family.
