Decal Scotland Ltd provide loft conversion services to clients in Bishopbriggs.
When you look into loft conversion, you will see lots of pictures of stunning rooms that have been created in the loft. But what about if you just want something simple, an additional storage area to keep all the stuff you don’t want downstairs?
Converting a loft for storage is one of the easiest and most cost-effective types of loft conversion. There are far fewer rules involved when you use it for storage versus using it for a habitable space and this makes it less expensive and quicker.
You do still want to have a loft ladder installed. This is not an expensive job and makes it much easier and safer to access the loft once it has been converted. Aluminium loft ladders are great if you only use the loft occasionally but if you plan to go up there quite often, a wooden loft ladder might be nicer in appearance.
The other big thing to add to the loft is the lighting. We’ve all blundered around up there with a single torch or a lamp and it is hard work so adding proper lighting is something that is an important part of the conversion.
The final step is to make the solid floor of the loft. Depending on the layout and insulation, there are different ways to do this. When you work with an expert in loft conversions, they will go through the best options with you.
