Maximise Loft Conversion Storage Space in Style
Maximising the storage space in your loft conversion is easy with built in cabinets and shelves. You can choose a style that matches the décor of your home for a seamless look or go for a more utilitarian style to store tools and other items. No matter what you choose, make sure the storage solutions are tailored to fit your needs. Loft rooms may be smaller than those on lower floors, so adding more furniture may not be a reasonable option.
If you are tight on storage space, think about using every nook and cranny in your loft conversion. For instance, install narrow cabinets along the walls to use as storage for clothes, linen, or toys. Or add a few shelves near the ceiling to store the boxes of holiday decorations or off-season clothes. Using built in storage solutions is a great way to make the most out of your loft conversion's limited space.
Use the Eaves and Roof Slope Space Wisely
A loft conversion can add a whole new room to your home, but you still need sufficient storage for your belongings. Even if you use the loft space as a bedroom or an office, you cannot get enough use out of the smaller spots under the slope of the roof or in the eaves. Adding cabinets and shelves there can help you make use of the extra space and keep your things organised.
Please see the link below for an example of where our client used the slope in their loft conversion as extra storage by adding two shelves and storage boxes within the space:
Built-in Storage Makes More Sense than Furniture
When it comes time to think about storage solutions for your new loft conversion, custom-made storage is often a more sensible solution than furniture. The new cabinets and shelves will be tailored to fit the specific space you have available. Furniture does not come with an angled side that suits the slope of your roof, but a built-in system can make use of all available space. An amazing loft conversion is only as good as the features found within. While most work great with a standard bed, settee, or desk, using the services of an expert loft builder company or carpenter can get you more storage and less wasted space in the end.
This is the company we recommend for building bespoke built-in storage solutions:
Make Your Furniture Choices Count for Storage
When choosing furniture, it is important to think about how much storage space you will need. You can find attractive pieces for your new loft with storage built right in. A bed with drawers underneath or a cabinet that can double as a dresser are both great choices for bedrooms. A table with shelves or drawers can be a great choice for a living room or office. By choosing furniture with storage, you can declutter your home and make it more organised. This is especially important in a relatively small space like a loft conversion if you want to maximise its usability and comfort. At the very least, purchase some plastic bins or fabric totes that can slide easily under the bed or your side tables to help keep things like linens, holiday decorations, and toys safe, organised, and out of site.
