How to Fill the Dead Space in any Loft Conversion

One thing that worries many homeowners about converting their loft is the fact that awkward angles under the eaves can sometimes lead to dead space. Nooks and crannies are often par for the course when converting your loft, but that doesn’t mean you can’t turn them into something useful with a few clever loft conversion ideas.

Creating a children’s bedroom? Using your loft space as a home office? Adding a sumptuous master suite? Whatever the use of your new attic room, there is a way that you can turn that dead space into useful space.

Children’s Bedroom

The dead space within a children’s bedroom loft conversion can be turned into something really fun. How about using those awkward nooks and crannies to create a den? It can be in keeping with the theme for the rest of the room, so perhaps turn an alcove into a tepee if you’ve got a cowboy themed room, or a princess castle if you’ve got a little princess of your own.

If you would rather it be put to use in a more practical way, use dead space for toy storage. Alternatively, if you have slightly older children, why not create a homework and study area, or a reading nook?

Master Suite

If you’re looking to fill the dead space in a new master suite, you have several options available to you. You can either make it purely decorative, and fill unused alcoves or fireplaces with large houseplants or tall candles; or you can make the space work for you and use it for storage.

In a master suite, why not fill odd space with open shelving? These could then be both functional and decorative. Mix ornamental objects up with small basket storage to hide knick-knacks that you don’t need to have on show.

Home Office

The perfect use for any awkward space in a loft conversion home office is, of course, a library! What better way to store and display important tomes? It will give your home study an air of importance, but will also provide you with much needed storage space for books and files. 

No matter what type of room you create from a loft conversion, there are excellent ways to use dead space which are in keeping with the tone and theme of the room. If you’re not sure what odd spaces you’ll be left with once complete, speak to Bespoke Lofts about how you can use them to your best advantage.
