5 – Gym / Health Space
Home gyms and health spaces have seen a surge in popularity since the outbreak of Covid-19 and a loft can be a great place for that kind of space.
A ‘Health Space’ sounds like quite a generic term, but the nature and variety of self-improvement techniques has changed over the last couple of decades and getting healthy is no longer just about doing weights and running.
A good loft conversion would make a perfect place to do:
- HIT Cardio
- Martial Arts
People who value the benefits of physical exercise rarely limit themselves to one type of it and having a dedicated space to do it in can improve the benefits it bestows.
Creating a gym or workout studio with a loft conversion also offers an element of privacy and quiet which is vital to things like yoga and meditation. People who work out at home don’t usually want their family members or neighbours to see them sweating, huffing and puffing while they work out.
4 Creative Studio
A loft conversion is a great place for a creative studio, and by that I me anything where creative work is done which is not necessarily and office, for activities such as:
- Making Music
- Recording Sound
- Art & Sculpture
Maybe you need a quiet space to get that perfect sound recoded or perhaps you need the space and light to set up your shots and backdrops.
You can design a loft conversion to suit your creative needs in terms of light, space and sound insulation to give you the best working space possible.
3 Games Room
Let’s face it; who doesn’t want a games room in their loft?
This type of loft conversion is a dream come true for many kids (and Dads too!)
A games room is a perfect addition to a family home with children, but especially teenagers because it can give them a bit of space and independence they crave so much at that age whilst keeping them safe and relatively under control.
If they are still under your roof, there is only so much trouble they can get into!
2 The Home Office
There is not much to say which hasn’t already been said about that virus, but it is undeniable that it has changed the way that millions of people all over the world do their jobs.
It’s true that some people don’t like working from home and it’s not difficult to see why if they are sharing the kitchen table with their partner who is also using as an office while they both take it in turns to home school their children.
For many, working from home is very convenient and having a dedicated space in the house to do it in is invaluable.
1 A Bedroom
It is a relatively obvious choice, but there are still a lot of variations possible with a loft conversion in a loft.
Not many people would go to the trouble of getting a loft conversion to add a ‘spare room’.
If your loft is big enough it could be come a very grand master bedroom with en-suite, Juliet or window balcony.
For children, having the room on the top floor is obviously the coolest place to have a bedroom, even if they have to climb as many stairs!
