Loft Conversion Storage
When planning your loft conversion, it’s easy to overlook the details and forge ahead with the bigger jobs, like installing windows and an en suite bathroom. However, it pays to imagine how you will use the space to your best advantage. Part of this process must involve your storage solutions. Consider what options are available to you, using our handy list below.
Built in wardrobes
Use your floor-to-ceiling space to create as much storage as you require. Built in wardrobes maximise storage capacity by being flush to the walls and ceiling and eliminate the dead space caused by traditional wardrobes. If you dedicate one entire wall to a bespoke built in wardrobe, you could have all the storage you need for that entire room and for other household items as well.
Chimney breast and fire place wardrobes
If you have a small fireplace in your loft and are not interested in using it as a focal point for the room, it can be knocked through and used as a storage area. You will need professional help with this type of storage solution, but the results are effective. Take note, this option won’t be available to you if you have a downstairs fireplace that’s currently in use.
Space is at a premium with many loft conversions, so you must take advantage of whatever dead space you happen to find. The eaves are a typical example. Many loft conversions will incorporate a small door to the eaves where services can be accessed more easily. But these spaces can be just as useful for storing other items that you don’t use year round. They are therefore ideal for camping equipment and Christmas decorations.
Installing floating shelves above head height provides space for books, speakers, records, cds and any other number of bulky-but-desired personal belongings. They work particularly well in tight corners and can be a great place to put an ornament above the stairwell.
