How to Use your Loft Conversion Staircase Space to your Best Advantage

Staircases in loft conversions can make or break your new attic space. In order to successfully convert your loft, getting the site of your staircase right is crucial, as this can impact on how you use the rest of the space within you loft. However, have you thought about actually using this space?

With just a few clever ideas, homeowners with loft conversions in London can start making the most of the space created by their new loft conversion staircase. Let’s take a look at how use the space more wisely.

Staircase Seating

If you’re loft conversion staircase is one which opens onto a landing in the middle, then you’ll be lucky enough to have some spare space to play with. First things first, we’d suggest adding a window, because natural light can help to make or break a loft conversion in London. Secondly, why not add some seating?

The easiest way to do this, of course, is just to add a comfy armchair. However, if you’re looking to streamline the space and use it as sparingly as possible, then a window seat is a great option. It’s practical and space saving, and will be the perfect place to curl up and watch the London City go by from!

Staircase Storage

Many people worry about storage when converting their loft, so if you have staircase space to play with, why not incorporate some storage? If you have the aforementioned landing space, then consider incorporating bench storage into your window seat space. Alternatively, if you have a loft of books or DVDs to store, floor to ceiling storage, created bespoke for the space, could be the answer.

Don’t forget that you can also use the space under the stairs on the landing below, if space permits. This triangular under-the-stairs-cupboard-space doesn’t just have to be used as a cupboard; this can be turned into open shelving, or indeed a reading nook.

Staircase Styling

If you don’t want to overpower your new loft conversion with lots of family photographs or prints, but would still like somewhere to display them, why not use your staircase space? The entrance space to loft conversions can look great when used as a gallery for family portraits, or your favourite paintings and photographs.

Loft conversion staircases don’t need to be a waste of space. With some clever styling and thinking a little bit outside of the box, they can be incorporated into your overall London loft conversion design.
