Converting your loft is a great way to add extra space to your home, and will undoubtedly add value to your property.
Whether you want to create your own sanctuary to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house, a private space for friends and family to stay, or a bigger bedroom for growing-up children, extend above your house to gain more rooms, without moving.
1. Open plan
This open plan master bedroom and en-suite makes for a bright and airy loft conversion, in a new-build in County Durham. Natural slate tiles from Prices Paving provide a beautiful backdrop for the Maderno bath from Bathrooms.com and blends in seamlessly with the A ceiling.
2. Sophisticated retreat
This loft space and the high pitch of the roof was one of the main reasons why this Victorian house in Tunbridge Wells was bought. The couple were insistent on making the space as bright as possible and getting the most out of the high ceiling, so much so that they asked 8 companies to come up with a design.
As the staircase had to enter into the centre of the room, this naturally separated the space into a living and sleeping area. A large, luxurious en-suite and dressing room was also added, making the total cost of the project, £114,500.
4. Careful use of space
This loft in an Edwardian property in South-West London was already converted into a home office in the 1970s. But they planned to extend the loft further into the pitched roof to create more space, and added two dormer windows for more light. They chose a frameless bespoke shower surround by Majestic as they wanted to space to look as open and spacious as possible. The project cost £24,000.
5. A sanctuary for Mum and Dad
This loft conversion in Hertfordshire allowed for a master bedroom and en suite for Mum and Dad to escape to. The master bedroom is a tranquil space with powder-blue painted walls and built-in floor-to-ceiling cupboards, which are neatly hidden from view behind the door.
6. Stylish loft en-suite
The owners of this First-floor Victorian maisonette in South-East London, insisted on a straight staircase, rather than a winder-style, to fit in with the design of the rest of the house. Their previous bedroom just didn’t feel big enough, but they didn’t want to feel like they were living in a loft, so they wanted as much roof height as possible. These porcelain and ceramic tiles are from Topps Tiles. The total house project cost was £66,720.
