Moving home in North London can not only be expensive, but it can also be tricky. Finding a new home that fits both your budget and your criteria is often luck of the draw, which is why more and more North London families are opting to convert their lofts to create some extra space.
Whether you need more space for a growing family, or you simply crave another bedroom, bathroom, office or playroom; a loft extension is not only a great way to make use of your unused space, but it can also add value to your London home. But you need to be sure it’ll be worth the investment, not to mention the disruption; so here are some brilliant ideas for your loft space to get you started.
Even if you have a sofa-bed, putting friends and family up in your living room is never ideal; which is why so many people tend to transform their unused attic space into a spare room for guests to stay in. Alternatively, if you don’t want to commit a whole room to your potential guests, you could use the space to create the perfect lounge retreat to relax and recharge in. Keep things simple with classic armchairs in neutral colours and opt for a sofa bed, to give you the benefit of both a guest room and a lounge space.
If you work from home, you’ll know how difficult it can often be to switch off from work and simply relax at home. Having a dedicated home office area, designed to your exact requirements, can allow you to focus on work in a calm and quiet environment, then relax in the main part of your house without always feeling like you’re still at the office.
Give your kids their own special place to relax by converting your loft into a playroom. Not only will it give them an area to go and play with their friends in, but the extra storage space for their things will stop you from having toys scattered all over your house. Alternatively, if your children are a little older, create a teenager’s paradise with lots of comfortable seating and a TV for video games and movie nights. You could also create a small study area to give them some peace and quiet when revising for their exams.
Transforming your loft into a home gym allows you to tailor the space to your own, personal requirements, and make working out something to look forward to, rather than a chore. Not only can choose the exact equipment you need, but you have full control over the music or TV channels that motivate you.
