Converting your loft into a livable space is a great idea when you are looking for ways to increase space in your home or are looking for ways to get a return on your investment. Because you are transforming something unlivable into a place you may find yourself in all the time, it can be hard to visualize how it will all come together. If you are looking for some loft inspiration, these loft conversion ideas will help get the creative juices flowing.

Go For An Open-Plan

The open floor plan will make your space feel much more spacious and airy. Creating an open floor plan does not just include the actual floor; it also includes furniture and toying with different heights and materials (think as far as skirting boards!). The goal is to look for things that create different areas within the room, but all cohesively work together.

Use Natural Light

Natural light is the one thing that will instantly open up a room. Natural light also includes things like considering the movement of light and the perceptions of space. Think about where you could include some full-height glazing or even a balcony or terrace. If you are looking for a more contemporary design, make sure you keep your sightlines to a minimum. Clean lines are important.

Make Sure The Loft Is Personal To You

When you are decorating something, go beyond what looks nice. Try to incorporate something that is unique. This is what gives the room personality while the design itself will give it flair. It could be anything from a piece of furniture, the materials you use or even the shape of the space. Make it your own and incorporate yourself into it.

Your loft can be anything you want it to be. If you love reading, transform it into a library with a reading alcove. If you love working out, transform it into a gym. If you just want a place where you can chill out and not be bothered, but all your favorite things there like a TV or video game.

Bring The Outside Inside

Well, not literally. Create some outdoor space as part of your loft conversion like a balcony or terrace you can sit on. It does not matter if your loft conversion is a master bedroom, guest room, office or playroom. Having some space outside will improve the look and feel of your conversion.

Transform Your Loft Conversion Into A Luxury Bathroom

If you did not get the bathroom of your dreams, you still have a chance. Turn your loft conversion into a luxury bathroom or a wet room. Make sure you measure enough headroom for the shower. The tub may not require as much headspace as the shower, so you can place the tub against any weird, sloping ceiling without losing its functionality. Equally important is incorporating an extractor fan for ventilation and extending plumbing and waste pipes into the loft.

Hopefully, these ideas helped you visualize the endless possibilities for your loft conversion.
