5 unique ways to utilise your loft space

5 unique ways to utilise your loft space

The humble loft… it’s dark and dusty, it’s filled with junk and your kids think it’s haunted. Actually, it’s also the most overlooked and underutilised space in your home. For many the loft is filled with untapped potential, essentially waiting for you to use that real estate, that square footage, to create something wonderful for you and the family.

For you to actually use this space, however, the first (and most important) step is to have your loft boarded. Now, you could do this yourself but this can often cost twice as much and look nowhere near as good as using a professional. So, why not consider using an award-winning loft boarding service from Instaloft? Stop viewing the space as somewhere dreary just to keep the Christmas decorations, and start seeing it as something wonderful.

There are, of course, the usual suspects when comes to loft conversions: the spare bedroom, the spare bathroom, a home office… While these are priorities for most people when getting a loft conversion, why not think out of the box? Here, we’ll help:

Home cinema

This is the ultimate dream for any film lover. Imagine having access to all of your favourite movies, from the modern blockbusters to the true classics, from the comfort of your home? Video projection and good quality sound equipment have never been more affordable, and streaming services like Netflix mean you can binge to your heart’s content without having to break the bank on a worthy film collection.

Wine room

This might sound like a luxury reserved only for Tuscan villas, but actually, it’s more common than you think. Whether you’re a seasoned aficionado or just starting to get into wine, turning your loft into a dedicated wine room can add a touch of sophistication to the home and will free up space in the fridge.

Hobby room

A multi-use room dedicated to your favourite hobby! Whether you’re an avid painter, writer, Warhammer fanatic, or maybe you even want a darkroom for developing photos? Converting your loft into a space dedicated to your hobby will be ideal.

Kids’ playroom

Very popular for growing families, a dedicated playroom means the kids always have somewhere to go and let their imagination run wild. The huge benefit to this is that your living room will no longer be scattered with toys, and you just might get some peace and quiet.


Even in these modern times, libraries are a beautiful and functional addition to the home. For anyone who loves reading, this can be a great place to kick back and unwind with a book.
