5 Semi-Detached House Loft Conversion Ideas

With so many 1930s semi-detached properties in and around London, if you own such a property and have a growing family, have you thought about how it could benefit you to undertake a loft conversion? When it comes to loft conversion ideas, UK homeowners are getting really creative with the extra space that a semi-detached attic conversion can give them. 


Here are just a few design ideas that could benefit your family home.


1. Extra Bathrooms

There is nothing like having an extra bathroom in your home to help instil harmony, especially for families with teenagers. You’ll be surprised how much smoother things run of a morning when there’s an extra bathroom in the house!


When undertaking a loft extension, you could either add extra bedrooms in the loft for your teenagers, with a Jack and Jill bathroom in between for them to share, or perhaps instead create a master bedroom suite for the grown-ups with a luxury ensuite all to yourselves. 


If you wish to turn more room over to a bathroom, you could even create a completely sumptuous sanctuary in your loft. This could really give you a place to get away from it all, perfect for that aforementioned family harmony!



2. Guest Bedroom



If you often have extended family coming to visit, perhaps to help with childcare or an elderly relative who is on their own, then when it comes to loft conversion ideas UK homeowners love, a guest bedroom is a great investment.


If you’re only looking for something simple, you may be able to get away with a straightforward roof light loft room. But if you want something a little more substantial, a dormer loft conversion will give your guests more room, perfect if they want to escape back to their bedroom from time to time. And of course, an ensuite bathroom is always a good idea to give everyone in the house, residents and guests alike, their own space and privacy.



3. Dressing Room



A dressing room is becoming more and more of a popular choice for loft conversion ideas UK households love. Whether it’s always been a dream of yours to have a walk-in wardrobe, or perhaps you’d like somewhere to get dressed without disturbing the rest of the household when you’re on an early shift, a dressing room is an excellent use of your new loft room.


Either incorporate it as part of a master suite, or go the whole hog and turn the entire space into an extravagant dressing room. Don’t forget to include plenty of bespoke built-in wardrobes and eaves storage to really make the most of every inch of your new attic conversion.



4. Grown ups’ getaway



Working from home, mum life, teenage hormones and toddler tantrums all a bit too much? For those times when you just need a little bit of peace and quiet, a loft build can provide exactly that: a haven where the adults in the house can escape after working from home, home schooling the kids all day, or simply being parents. 


Got amazing views from your semi-detached home? All the better! Think about letting in natural light, adding comfy seating in front of floor-to-ceiling windows or a cosy window seat, or maybe even a balcony. Why not add all the mod cons with a sound system and ambient lighting too, to really set the mood? And, most importantly, remember that ‘do not disturb sign’ for the door!



5. Bring balance to your home



Maybe you don’t have the grand loft conversion ideas many UK homeowners have. Perhaps you simply want to expand your space with a new loft room and bring some balance into your home. That’s absolutely fine.


Sometimes all we need to make our family home work harder for us is to add an extra room. A kids’ bedroom, a home office, or perhaps a playroom. 


Remember that you can always repurpose the rooms downstairs to work better for you once your new loft extension is complete and ready to take over the role of one or more of your existing rooms. A simple loft conversion may be all you need, but it could really tip the scales back in your favour when it comes to balancing your home.
