What Houzz contributors are saying:
Stay at home for a whileIf you’re feeling sensitive or unsure about your finished results, then don’t torture yourself further. Make your excuses and don’t visit anyone else’s new kitchen/bathroom/living room for a few weeks, so you bed in with your design before seeing different possibilities. Other people’s places always have a habit of seeming better than your own, but after a while you’ll hopefully stop automatically comparing, and be happier with your design choices.
You should be able to have as many windows as you likeThis will again depend on your local council and whether or not you’re in a conservation area, but generally, most planners are happy to approve as many windows as you can physically fit within the structure.

‘An open window…’ teddismum
Celebrate your slopesAs genuine industrial dwellings are carved out of non-purpose-built spaces, a room with an unusual shape is often a good fit. Loft conversions lend themselves to industrial elements, such as column radiators and bare windows. Let the space dictate the décor and try out ideas that might not work elsewhere in your home.
Be precise with roller blindsIn attic bedrooms and loft conversions, Velux-style roof windows demand a special sort of window treatment. Neat, discreet roller blinds that are made to fit the exact size of each window are the best solution. They let the light flood in, unhindered, during the daytime, and simply pull down in a fuss-free, functional manner when it’s time for your beauty sleep.
