Make a mezzanineIn the case of a one-storey or tiny house, you may be able to create a mezzanine beneath the roof, instead of a fully enclosed loft room. The sense of space will be greatly enhanced and, if you put in skylights, as seen here, the floor below will benefit from light flooding in from these windows at roof level.Invest in bespoke units to make best use of storage on your sloping gable wall. Mix cupboards with drawers and open shelves to create storage moulded to your every need.How can I carve out a new room without extending?

Carve out some spaceEven a very low ceiling can fit handy storage below it. This loft room is snug, but the angled wall at the back of the space is neatly arranged with plenty of organising zones.To add interest to a wall of white cupboards, break it up with a combination of recessed open shelves, drawers and cupboards.

…especially in protected or listing buildingsColm explains why he didn’t create a loft conversion in the cottage instead. ‘It’s a protected structure,’ he says. ‘It was built in the 16th century, so we couldn’t put any windows on the front, nor dormers, nor break the roof line.’ Permissible skylights illuminate the bed area.The beamless structure, though meticulously designed, is far simpler than a loft conversion or even many mezzanines. ‘There’s no steelwork in there; we designed it with our cabinet-maker as a huge piece of furniture,’ Colm says.
