The access to your new converted loft

It is a very good idea that you do not end up building a staircase that might take a lot of space and
make it difficult for you to move around. As well it is very important that you build a staircase that is suitable
according to the space in the room - that is as well because you may want to move things up and down which
would not be that easy if you do not think this thoroughly.

What colours should we use ?

It is obvious that at some point you might want to switch from using a room as a study room to, for example a living room.
That is why you should make sure that when you choose the colours for that specific room - they are maybe neutral
colours. Neutral colours are easy to adapt to different type of rooms. Neutral colours are as well the right colour if you want to
have the feeling that there is more space in the room.

Always think smart

As you are converting your loft:

• Think about ways that can make your room look bigger.
• You can for example decide on using a large skylight to let the light get in.
• This will make your room seem bigger.
• The skylight will look as well very pretty.
• Converting the loft is often the easiest way to creating new space compared to buying a new house.
• In general it can be more expensive to find a new place with an extra room compared to converting the loft that you already have.
• It is said that the loft conversion in average can increase the value of your home up to 25%

Therefore loft converting can be a good investment.
