What To Do With Loft Space Storage

Even if you have large loft space storage, it becomes useless if you can’t navigate around it and know where everything is. 

There are various ways that you can increase the usefulness of your loft without moving to a bigger home or investing in a huge project. As the experts, we’ve put together 5 suggestions on transforming your unloved loft into a useful storage space. 

Truss Storage Solutions

A loft can offer so much to your home. You can enjoy your loft storage space without changing the layout of your home, it’s about finding a way to structure the loft to suit your belongings. 

Truss Shelves can be custom-built, designed perfectly to the shape of the available space. These shelves allow you to create storage and a functional space, regardless of the style of your home. Trusses are a cost-effective way to improve your loft without investing in building work. You’ll reap the benefits so much quicker as well. 

LoftZone’s Truss Shelves are strong enough to support the weight of the roof material, and with sturdy construction, it distributes the weight of the joists properly to ensure that your roof will not be affected.

Ceiling Storage

Installing suspended ceiling storage is a great way to improve the area around you without bringing in any heavy shelving or having clutter spread across the floor. 

Many people overlook this use of space, but it’s ideal for storing larger items such as furniture, suitcases, and camping kits. Ceiling storage is perfect for keeping less used items out of the way. 

Securely Store Your Belongings

Storage boxes are ideal to store and sort your belongings. Label each box to save you having to pull everything out, or use transparent (plastic) boxes, as you can see what’s stored in each box. You should not need airtight boxes, unless you have a dust or damp problem in your loft. This way your loft space storage is kept neat and tidy.

You can keep your boxes on the Truss Shelves or stacked up on a boarded loft floor. It’s important to buy boxes that are made of durable material so that if you are going to stack them, they won’t break underneath the weight of another – just don’t stack too high in case they become unstable and unsafe. For the easiest access to everything, we recommend using LoftZone’s heavy duty shelving or raised loft flooring. 

Loft Conversions

As the housing market continues to fluctuate, homeowners are revamping and doing up rooms to increase the value of their homes, and also to avoid moving in such a market. Loft conversions add value, but it is worth remembering that not all homes are eligible for a loft conversion. And they will cost you tens of thousands of pounds.

Converting your loft can transform this space into an additional living area and thus spreads out your belongings, but it doesn’t necessarily give you the best options in terms of storage. We recommend using eaves cupboards, perhaps with sliding doors to maximise the loft space’s storage following a conversion. Sliding doors means that you won’t have to crawl into the eves to find Christmas decorations or items you’ve put right at the back of the cupboards.
