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?
