Light upThere’s a huge amount of daylight flooding into this loft bedroom. Ewan Walker of MADE Property, who lives here, explains that he put two skylights into the newly opened up roof space – a fixed one over the stairs and another above the bed.“[The window over the bed is] cantilevered and remote-controlled, so you can open it in the summer and lie in bed staring up at the stars,” he says.

Incorporate comfy sidesIf you want to lounge comfortably on your window seat, it’s a good idea to factor in some sides to lean against. You could take the seat right up to the wall, but, for extra comfort, this idea is perfect.The designers have added inclines on either side of the bench, so the owners can rest against them while relaxing by the window.

Walker was already living in the flat by the time permission to convert the loft was granted. “The cost of securely covering the roof while work took place was prohibitively expensive,” he says. “So instead, we just waited until we saw a dry week on the forecast and then ripped the roof off!” A team of builders worked on the extension and a separate team of roofers constructed the new roof and fitted two skylights. “We did run into a couple of rainstorms during the three weeks of work and the tarpaulin we were using to secure the roof was becoming less watertight the more we used it,” says Walker. “I remember getting up on a couple of stormy nights and walking barefoot through all the sawdust and screws to reposition buckets, hoping none of the rain would come through to the bedroom below. It was a relief when the skylights went in and the whole roof was sealed!”Wall lights, Urban Cottage Industries. Bed; bedside tables, all Habitat.
