Upgrade Your Home with Loft Conversion Eaves Storage

There are several reasons why you might want to upgrade your home with a loft conversion and turn your unused loft space into an attic room, bedroom or living area. It will create more space for you to use and enjoy, which can accommodate a growing family, allow you to host guests and visitors more easily, and can increase the value of your property significantly.

However, it is important not to forget the value of storage. If you already use your attic space for storage, converting it will reduce your storage capacity, and it is important to account for this when planning. Even if you do not, adding a bedroom to your home without adding any extra storage capacity can make it difficult to use the space for the purposes you intend.

Thankfully, there are several types of built-in loft storage ideas and options that can help you to make the best use of the space without compromising on your storage needs. Here, the experts at Clever Closet explain how a loft conversion can upgrade your home, and discuss some of the options that can allow you to add storage capacity into a new loft bedroom, so that you can make the best possible use of the space you have available.

How can adding a loft room upgrade your home?

A loft conversion can be a great way to overhaul your home and add some much-needed space. In fact, adding space is one of the most common reasons why people decide to undertake a loft conversion. Whether your family is growing, you want a dedicated home office that you can use for remote work, you have taken up a new hobby to which you want to dedicate the space, or you are trying to accommodate any other lifestyle changes, a loft conversion may be the most innovative solution.

Enhance the value of your property

It could also allow you to create a guest room for visitors, or to sublet to a lodger or holidaymakers to make some extra cash. If you are motivated by money, it is also important to consider the fact that loft conversions can significantly enhance the value of your property. By creating an extra bedroom, you can give your home a quick boost – but as property values rise over time, you can also view your upgrade as an investment that will pay for itself many times over when you finally decide to move.

Striking a balance

Of course, it is essential to consider the practical aspects of converting an attic space. You may need planning permission, and the attic itself may have structural challenges you need to overcome, or insulation to take into account. Another practicality is the need for storage space – however you intend to use your new room, you will need to strike a balance between living space and storage options.

What are the benefits of under-eaves storage space?

There can be significant challenges in creating storage space in a converted attic room, due to the structural considerations we mentioned above, and the practical reality of a sloped ceiling. Wardrobes, cupboards and other storage units cannot fit comfortably under the eaves, which can leave you with wasted space, and force you to compromise with the design of the room, or the storage capacity you can utilise.

A purpose-built under-eaves storage space from Clever Closet is the perfect way to add storage capacity and free up room. Our under-eaves units take advantage of the otherwise-unused triangular space under the eaves and create an organised system of drawers and cupboards that gives you more flexibility in how you store your possessions.

Avoid wasting space

One of the key benefits of adding extra storage space beneath the eaves when you install a loft conversion is that you can avoid wasting this space – in most loft conversions, the space under the eaves is impractical to use because of its shape and size.

Sloping ceilings create a triangular shape that is not convenient for typical furniture, and the space under the eaves becomes dead space that is usually hidden behind the walls of a loft conversion. However, by installing a built-in storage solution, you can turn this into a practical space instead, creating extra storage capacity that will allow you more flexibility in how you occupy your attic space.

By occupying the unused spaces in your attic room, these built-in storage solutions allow you to enjoy more of the available space, and give you the freedom to pursue the interior design philosophy that will best suit your ambitions.

If you relied on loft storage before you converted the space, installing under-eaves cupboards or drawers can also help you to find a new home for all the possessions you can no longer accommodate. This can prevent the need for you to hire a storage locker for your long-term storage needs, and ensure that your belongings remain easily accessible, but tidily out of sight.
