The loft is often used as little more than a dumping ground for items that people do not want in the home and often a chaotic, stressful place for homeowners. This does not have to be the case, as you could convert this into a usable space which could significantly improve your home, give you more space, add value and make it more appealing to buyers when the time comes. So, what are a few of the best ways to convert this space?

New Bedroom

One of the most obvious conversions is to turn this space into another bedroom. This could be either thinking ahead for your growing family or simply as a guest room that would allow your guests to stay comfortably and with privacy as opposed to on the sofa. You do not need to do a huge amount for this conversion, but you will want to have VELUX windows installed for natural light and for the best views to make your guests feel welcome.

Home Gym

Many people are turning to working out at home in 2020 and this is for good reason. Space can be an issue, though, so turning a loft into a home gym could be smart and allows you to buy a range of equipment for this space. Having a dedicated space for exercise in the home will make it easier to workout on a regular basis and stop other areas of the house from becoming cluttered.


Working from home has become the new normal in 2020, yet many people struggle to find a suitable space to work, especially if others in the household are doing the same. Converting the loft into a functional office space can transform your WFH experience, it could improve your daily performance as well as make it easier to separate your home and work life (something that many struggle with).


If you are fortunate enough to live in an area that has nice views then an observatory could be a fantastic way to cover your loft. This could become a nice peaceful space to come and enjoy the views, watch the stars or even just as a place to come and relax after a long day.

These are just a few ideas for ways that you could convert your loft space. If your loft has become nothing more than a dumping ground for items that you do not want in the home but do not want to throw out, then you may seriously want to consider making better use of this space. The above can all improve your life and home as well as add a significant amount of value to the property, particularly in a time where many more people are exercising and working from home more.
