What an excellent article.

Loft Conversion eaves storage areas are very big.

Made to measure cupboards are very handy as well.

Each new Loft Conversion we build has masses of space and some of it is wasted if it isn't used properly.

We find that the area between the frontal eaves and the stairs in almost all the Dormer Style Loft Conversions is mostly wasted space. This is where we always advise our clients to install made to measure wardrobes as the space would otherwise be unused.

Some clients opt for cupboards across the entire wall opposite the stairs as well.

The eaves areas should also be full boarded up at construction stage. There's a number of ways to make use of the eaves storage as Karen has pointed out above.

Another clever idea is to use boxed and wheeled storage systems which, in our experience makes use of every little inch of storage space within the eaves. This system is also handy for under stairs storage at ground floor level as well.
