What Houzz contributors are saying:
Simply convertTechnically, a loft ‘conversion’ is where the space above bedroom ceilings and beneath a pitched roof is converted from a non-habitable, often uninsulated area for storing suitcases into a habitable space. To do this, typically both the roof and floor will need additional structural strength, insulation will have to be added, some daylight will need to be allowed in (often with a roof window) and a new staircase will be required.If your loft space has enough height (often a critical factor), then this can really be a very simple building operation indeed and can add a charming and effective new space to your home.
The guest bedroomSpare rooms shouldn’t be extra storage space, piled high with boxes and unused items, with a bed pushed into the corner. A properly styled guest room not only makes you a fabulous host, it’ll keep your friends and family coming back for more. Thompson’s choice shows just how simple and stylish it can be. “Wow, this loft extension bedroom is too nice to actually be used!”
Sleep in symmetry Simple, balanced décor can be just the ticket if you want to achieve a Zen-like state of calm.Anchor your bed with two bedside tables – bare wood is a good choice – and a pair of glowing lamps. Stick to a neutral, clean backdrop – white walls and bed linen – and let tranquillity reign.
