Now that you have decided that it’s a good idea to carry out a loft conversion on your Bromley home, you will need to consider all of the options and possibilities available to you. Turning your loft area into an additional room or relaxation zone can certainly capitalise on space, which is a hot commodity when it comes to UK properties.
There are various ideas that you can follow for your loft conversion from a teen pad or entertainment room to a guest room for when you have visitors. Perhaps you even want to convert your loft into a reading room or study. Regardless of what you choose, you will need to get creative with the space that you have available. You need to create a feeling of space and this can only really be done with light.
Natural light is a great way to create a feeling of space and without windows in the loft you will struggle. Many home owners request that their building company in Bromely install windows in the roof of the loft to let some light in. In addition to this you can even create a mini balcony and a window in the one sidewall of the loft. This, together with the roof windows will let in sufficient light to light up the entire loft. If you are worried about the room being too light in the early mornings, don’t be! You can solve that problem by installing thickly lined curtains or black out blinds, which will certainly allow those who want to sleep in, a few extra hours.
In addition to natural light you can also use light and neutral colours to create an element of space. You can of course use a bit of contrast for interest, but try to keep the room mostly light and neutral. Furniture to use should also be compact or multipurpose, such as a chest of drawers that can also be used as a side table to store bedside items on and similar. Chairs that fold away are a good idea to capitalise on space, along with a comfy sleeper couch instead of a full sized bed.
These are just a few ideas on how to make your loft conversion in Bromley appear more spacious. For more advice and tips on the subject, you should chat to your chosen building company.
