Monitor delivery times “While a loft conversion specialist will supply the majority of materials for you, there may be some things you need or want to supply yourself,” Ausra says. Make a list of everything you’re sourcing, she advises. “A comprehensive list makes it easier to check delivery times across a project. Order everything to arrive only when it’s needed, so the builders aren’t either tripping over it because it’s on-site too early or are waiting around because it hasn’t been delivered.” It may seem like a good idea to order items well ahead of time, but is there room to store them on-site without impeding the progress of the build? You won’t want to pay for storage elsewhere if you can avoid it.Find home professionals in your area to help bring your project to life.

Try a mint makeover Show a loft conversion shower room some love with white walls to help the small area feel bright and spacious, and perky peppermint tiles to seal the deal. Pale grey paint gives the floor a touch of contrast, which helps to add depth to the room. Here, the mint tiles take centre stage, so clutter has been kept to a minimum with discreet storage to prevent the shower tray becoming a bottle bank. The sleek alcoves were created in the stud wall before being framed out and tiled.
Punctuate a pale scheme This all-white bathroom has been given an eye-catching feature in the form of beautiful aqua green tiles in the shower enclosure. Using colour to zone this area creates the illusion of a larger space, drawing attention to the full-height side of the room, and, along with the pale grey of the floor tiles, removes the clinical feel of pure white. Use any colour in this way depending on your taste – it would look equally good with deep cobalt blue or zesty shades – but keep the surrounding area simple, so it retains the same calm, clean atmosphere.
The bright bathroom occupies the whole back quarter of the house and is light-filled, thanks to the inclusion of three Velux windows. ‘Rachel wanted a wet room feel with clean lines and no shower door, but without having to waterproof the whole floor,’ says Jeremy. ‘So we used a large, 1.8m shower tray and sunk in down so it was almost level with the floor.’Alcoves were created in the stud wall before being framed out and tiled to form handy nooks for shower products. The floor is the same soft grey tongue and groove as the rest of the loft space. Radiator, B&Q.Get expert advice on choosing a new shower enclosure
