Loft Conversion – Homestyling

Homestyling Lofty Dreams

I can’t believe that we’ve been at this house we call our home for over 5 years now. We’ve not done any major works* but we have plans to eventually put a new kitchen and new bathroom in. But today I’m talking about our ultimate goal – a loft conversion!

(*We’ve done some redecorating which included painting our bedroom from a nasty lilac into the boring but clean magnolia and replacing carpets in said bedroom and the living room. We’ve also redone the downstairs loo and the toddler’s bedroom.)

Our attic is actually HUGE!! Not that I know because I can’t get in it but to go be you and idea, my 6’2″ hubby can stand upright and stretch his arms upwards and still not reach the top of the roof. That in my mind is huge!

We’ve had someone come out to give us a quote of how much it would cost to do a loft conversion but it ended up being around £22k so that plan has been shelved for now. But I can still dream!!

In my dream I would convert our loft into a master bedroom for hubby and I. It would have room for our bed, a walk in wardrobe and an ensuite with shower.

I’d love to have some windows by Velux along the roof at the back of the house because we could then see Snowdon. Unfortunately there’s an industrial estate right behind our house so we would also need to have some lovely blinds so to block out observers. I saw these lovely Velux blinds by RoofBlinds.co.uk – I do love lime green. Would be lovely!

When I was younger, one of my friends had an attic bedroom and I thought it was so cool! Oh if only I had the money! It’d be so awesome!

What do you think about loft conversions and attic rooms?

    22k is a lot of money!

    My dad had his loft converted and mainly uses it for storage. I slept up there a couple of times as a teenager (on a futon!), but in summer it was always so, so hot!

    I always envied friends with loft bedrooms as a teenager. I love the images you have shown, I hope you achieve your dream one day!

    I’m sure you’ll get your dream one day, at least now you have a figure in mind that you could work towards if you decided to gradually save up for it. The previous owners of our home put a loft conversion in and it is great because we feel like we sleep away from the rest of the house but it does all need reconfiguring because the design layout was very poor. The blinds are beautiful X #HomeEtc

    I love the idea of a loft room, just for me and my husband, with a walk in wardrobe built into the eaves. It will probably stay as a loft though. I don’t have anywhere else to put all the junk we store up there.

    My old house had a loft conversion when I was younger and was known as my play room. That was until my stepbrothers moved in and it got converted into a bedroom, I wasn’t happy! x

    I’d love one – I think they are so cool and really grown up! The windows make it look so light and bright. One day! Thanks for linking up #HomeEtc

    A loft with master bedroom, walk-in wardrobe and en-suite sounds amazing. I would love that, but my loft is small and this year we managed to transform it into a storage area.

    22K sounds like a lot of money but I bet it would be worth every single penny!! 🙂 It would be amazing to have an enormous bedroom and ensuite at the top of the house, wouldn’t it? And it would add value to your home too! Thanks for linking up with us lovely 🙂 Caro xx #HomeEtc
