How to Furnish Your Converted Loft Bedroom

March 27, 2017 4:53 pm

Converting your unused loft space into a fully functioning bedroom is a great way to add space in your home without extending outwards and taking up space in your garden. However, with loft conversions come low ceilings and the potential for dead space. But, believe it or not, our advice and a little bit of optimism can go a long way. You can turn your loft bedroom into a great place for relaxing and unwinding after a long day at work.

When decorating your new room and adding furniture, be as imaginative as you like so that it becomes a space you can be proud of. The ceiling is lowest at the sides of the room, which is the ideal spot to place your bed, particularly if it’s a single. This will free up the rest of the room for other furniture. Choose a bed with a fairly small stature so that it doesn’t take up too much space in the room.

Space is often limited in loft conversions, so when it comes to your nightstand, make sure you find one that comes with drawers for extra storage and install a floating shelf to keep clutter under control. We also recommend hiring a professional to fit some built-in storage units, making the most of all the awkward spaces in the room.

If you’re concerned that the room still feels a bit cramped, even if you’ve carefully selected your furniture, then you should try adding some mirrors. They create an illusion that the room is bigger than it actually is by reflecting light and increasing the perceived depth of the room. Walls painted white (or another light colour) will have a similar affect.

So, with a little creativity and our handy tips you’ll have the perfect bedroom in no time. It will be well worth all of the hard work in the long run.
