Although the current trend for homeowners is to dig down when more space is needed, building upwards, extending or converting dead space is a less laborious solution. It does however result in rooms with angled or pitched ceilings, which can be tricky to negotiate to squeeze the maximum out of the new space. Here are some examples of clever and stylish loft conversions:
This delightful scheme makes the most of the light-filled attic area with sunny yellow accents and whitewashed walls. These lucky owners even had enough loft space to add an en suite-bathroom, which also features vibrant pops.
Storage is maximised in this light, neutral setting with tall bespoke wardrobes built into the eaves to utilise every inch of valuable space, while creating a discreet entrance to the bathroom beyond. The pale wood theme continues from floor-to-ceiling creating a cocooning effect.
This Scandi-style design takes the discreet storage concept a step further with wooden planks creating a textural feature wall, while hiding ample wardrobe space inside. White wool carpet provides warmth and comfort underfoot, and the transparent balustrade keeps the compact area looking and feeling spacious and airy.
