Between the pressures of our jobs and the general hustle and bustle of London life; there’s nothing better than finding a few quiet moments to relax and unwind. Unfortunately, with yoga becoming increasing more popular, it can be difficult to find a class that is small enough to give you the calming experience you desire. So, there’s no wonder that more and more London families are making the most of their unused loft space by transforming it into a personal yoga studio to escape the pressures of the outside world, as well as add value to their property.
So, if you’re thinking of converting your London Loft into a relaxing yoga studio – whether it be for personal use or business, here are some of the things you’ll need to consider.
How do you want your yoga studio to look?
Creating a yoga studio within your own home doesn’t just give you flexibility and privacy, but it also allows you to tailor the space to your own, personal needs. You can choose music that relaxes you, install a television to watch tutorials on easily and choose exactly what equipment you need – there really are no limits!
So, in order to create the perfect yoga studio that you’ll actually want to spend time in, here are a few things you should think about:
- Mirrors: Not only can mirrors help to give the illusion of a larger, brighter space, but they really are a necessity when it comes to creating a yoga studio to ensure that your form is correct. Be sure to prevent any injuries and consider installing a wall of full-length mirrors.
- Music: The best part of having your own, personal yoga studio in your own is that you get to choose your own music. So, whether you prefer relaxing rainforest sounds or white noise – or even a bit of RnB, investing in a quality speaker system can make a real difference to your space.
- Storage – Clutter and calm vibes are certainly not two things that go together. In order to keep your new yoga studio looking clean and bright, think about storage solutions you may need. Shelves to hold your towels, for example, or a wicker basket to hold your mats are not only helpful additions but will also make your studio look stunning.
Converting your loft
When creating any new space within your home, there are always structural elements that need to be considered, especially when it comes to areas used for exercise.
- Windows – One of the benefits of transforming an unused loft space, is that you can usually take advantage of the natural light by installing skylights. However, this can also mean that the room gets very hot in summer or very cold in winter – so think about how to combat these issues before they become a problem. Installing air conditioning into the loft conversion could also be a useful choice.
- Ventilation – When it comes to any workout area, proper ventilation is important – luckily there are lots of ways to ensure that the air is kept circulating throughout your yoga studio, so be sure to discuss your options with your surveyor.
