15 Jun Saving Loft Space
Utilizing a loft in your new home is one of the best ways for you to essentially make the most out of the space that you have. Having one allows you to make use of aerial space, have more storage areas for items, and can be converted into an office, game room, or bedroom. The first thing you’ll want to do before getting started is to get rid of non-essentials – clutter or unwanted items should be out of the way in order to clear up the space so that it will be easier to implement design ideas.

Re-arrange furniture so that you maximize the space taken up. A loft is limited in functionality so make sure that anything absolutely not needed is stowed away or given to charity. Add cabinets and shelves to make even more use of extra space on walls for trinkets, accessories, and anything else that you need to reach at a moment’s notice. Consider adding a coffee table inside of a traditional bedside table to get a nice low-height and easy to reach surface.
Multi-purpose is the name of the game when it comes to lofts. Headboards on beds can be fitted with extra shelves on the back for more storage. The stairs leading up to the loft can also be designed in such a way that closets and cabinets are inserted into the sides, which would make a nice storage for shoes, cleaning materials, etc. A portable wardrobe will provide extra space instead of a fully-sized built-in one. If you’re trying to get a desk up to the loft, a standard office type one might be tricky to get up the stairs. A better idea would be to install or construct a built-in table or ledge on one of the walls which can also double as a mirror or vanity area if designed correctly.
Creating a more spacious area in your loft can be a nuisance, but having the right plan and taking action is key to creating a beautiful and aesthetic living area.
