Planning your perfect loft space? Here are some loft conversion ideas and practical suggestions to help you craft your ideal space.

Whether you want to create a fabulous master bedroom and en suite, a spacious home office with ample storage or a space for your children to play and grow, you’ll find lots of creative ideas for making a space you’ll love for years to come.

The Classic Loft Conversion – Create your dream master bedroom and en suite

One of the most popular loft conversion designs is to reconfigure the attic into a master en suite. By dedicating your whole loft space to your conversion, it is possible to achieve all the features you crave, including a large bedroom, en suite with roll top bath and/or walk-in shower, dressing room and banks of built-in storage.   

For a twist on the classic master en suite conversion, why not consider an open-plan loft conversion? This will enhance space and light and is a great way to attain a boutique hotel feel in the comfort of your own home.

This Dormer loft conversion – where a box-shaped structure is built into the slope of the roof – in Streatham is a stunning example of an open-plan bedroom en suite.

The modern design features a large bed and freestanding bath beneath double roof lights. The lack of walls amplifies the space and bathtub in the bedroom gives a decadent hotel feel.

Children’s Bedroom and Playroom Loft Conversion

If your family is growing, expanding into the loft is an ideal way to gain extra space. As well as accommodating a nursery or child’s bedroom, if room allows, you can add a bathroom – creating a whole new floor.

Loft alcoves and quirky angles under eaves also make brilliant storage for toys and books – not to mention making secret dens! Rather than moving out of the home they loved, this family in Tooting asked us to design and build a Dormer loft conversion for their young twin boys. We created an airy double bedroom, easily slotting in two twin beds, plus ample play space. The bathroom with full-sized bath and sink cabinet also makes bath time a dream.

Create a Spacious Loft Home Office

With more of us working from home than ever, having a separate area to work and make video calls is increasingly important. If your attic is gathering dust, converting it into a loft office will provide much needed privacy away from the bustle. This large-scale Dormer conversion in Walthamstow created a multi-purpose space, including a home office, music area and chill out zone. French doors and roof lights welcome plenty of natural daylight, making it a lovely space to work and play.

Bring the outside in with a Loft Conversion Terrace or Juliet Balcony

Since the pandemic, having an outside space – a place to simply unwind and breathe – is top of many of homeowner’s wish lists.

If you’d like a private enclave to relax, consider creating a loft conversion with adjoining outdoor space, such as a terrace or balcony. The interior of this large loft conversion in south west London includes bi-fold doors leading to a roof top terrace. Room for seating, a table and planters, the terrace is perfect for winding down.

If your loft space doesn’t lend itself to a full terrace, you can get the feeling of outdoors with full width bi-fold doors like this conversion in a family home in Harlesden. A glass balustrade or Juliet balcony – an iron railing attached to the window exterior – are robust, easy to install and create a practical yet pretty feature.

Plus, who can beat taking in the view from the comfort of your own bed?
