Decal Scotland Ltd provide loft conversion services to clients in Bothwell.
When you talk about loft conversions, people tend to think about either storage space or an extra bedroom. And while these are two of the popular uses for the extra space gained from a converted loft, they are not the only options.
If you have hobbies that have equipment or need some space, the loft may be the perfect place for a hobby room. Being up and out of the way from the rest of the house gives you some space to enjoy your hobby and even a small loft can work for some interests. You may want to consider what you do and if special adaptations are needed – for example if you are a musician, do you need insulation that stops noise as well as heat? Do you want to have an acoustic membrane, so the rooms below are shielded from the noise?
Lots of us enjoy a drink at home and why not make the loft into your own home bar? With rooflights, the room can be light and airy, and you can even have balcony style windows that let even more light and air in. Add a sofa and some plants around the bar and you have a perfect entertaining space.
As more people than ever work from home, having the loft as a home office is another use for the extra room. Make sure you have windows to let natural light in and you can have a private spot away from the busy areas of the house for your work.
