How to Create the Perfect Autumnal Loft Conversion

As the summer months come to a close and the long nights draw in, it’s time to start thinking about getting your home ready for the autumn. Many people don’t consciously think about changing their homes as the season's change (other than maybe throwing on the winter duvet!), but actually, it can give a real sense of homeliness to add some autumnal touches.

Loft conversions are an ideal space to add some autumnal hints, as their position under the eaves of your home will often make them cosy and homely as they are. Here are some of the best loft conversion ideas to give you a lovely autumnal feel:

Blankets and Throws

Subconsciously, you may already be doing this within your home. Adding throws and blankets to your soft furnishings is always a winning autumnal warmer. Tartan has had a real revival of late, and it makes any room feel ready for autumn. Alternatively, opt for woollen throws and runners that you can drape at the end of a bed, or over the back of a sofa.

Wooden Tones

Anything inspired by nature will always give a home a cosy feel, which is perfect for the autumn months. Brown tones bring a sense of comfort to any room and work particularly well in a loft conversion if there are already the likes of wooden beams.

Why not add a few wooden accessories, such as a natural wood side table, bedside cabinet or even a wooden inspired table lamp? Anything slightly rustic will enhance the cosy, autumnal feel.

Candles and Lighting

If you know anything about the Danish concept of hygge, you’ll be aware that candles are ranked highly within the idea of creating a cosy, warm space. Candlelight is romantic: it’s simple, and it’s calming. Use scented candles to help you relax further still.

Alternatively, think about your lighting options when designing your loft conversion, and choose lights which can be adjusted or turned on individually within different areas of the room. This will allow you to turn up the cosiness when required during the autumn months!
