Increasing your space doesn’t necessarily mean just adding an extra bedroom. There are many alternative uses for your new loft that may not have crossed your mind. Whether you want to work from home, unwind in style or indulge your passion, these creative loft conversion ideas are sure to inspire.
The new breed of ‘homepreneurs’ understand that if you’re going to do big things, you need a dedicated space to get them done. Transforming your loft into a bright and airy home office, studio or workspace is the ideal solution. Whether you’re sat at your computer, massaging a client, or painting a masterpiece, you can cut out the commute, head upstairs and get to work.
Gym membership can be costly, and going regularly (especially in the winter) requires plenty of motivation. But why not get fit from home instead? With the right machines and equipment, you can create the cardio cave of your dreams, a dedicated weights room, or even a yoga studio. And if the spa’s more your scene, a loft conversion could include your very own sauna or a luxurious hot tub with a view of the stars.
Caves for days
It can be hard to get away from it all, especially when there’s kids running wild or housemates causing chaos. Your loft provides the perfect solution: a dedicated man, woman or couples cave to retreat from the rest of the world. Be endlessly entertained by a pool table, games consoles, or private cinema; build your own library with reading nooks to put your feet up; or unwind in style without having to share the remote, with plush sofas and a minifridge for the drinks.
Rather than a spare room, you might need a loft to provide a permanent space for a loved one or employee. With house prices rising exponentially, many families are worried that their elderly parents or grown offspring are unable to afford quality housing. We’re getting an increasing number of enquiries from homeowners expanding their property to include a dedicated space for family members or caregivers (such as an au pair).
By devoting your loft to your children, they have their own space to feel comfortable and be creative, and you get the rest of the house to yourself. Lofts are an ideal space for younger kids to play, learn, shout and make a mess – keeping all their larger toys and creative pursuits in one place – and for teenagers to hang out with friends and do their homework in peace.
Home for hobbies
No matter what you’re into, finding the space in the rest of the house to pursue your passion can be hard. A dedicated hobby room in your loft means you have storage and work space to do what you love. Whether you’re a musician in need of a soundproofed studio, a sewing enthusiast wanting a bright, spacious workroom, or a vinyl collector who needs to house their immense record collection (with superb acoustics for that authentic original sound), we can accommodate your hobby’s unique needs.
