Wow! Wouldn't this be a perfect bedroom for parents that fancy being able to get away from the kids a little bit, by having their own floor, at the top of the house? The mirrored wardrobe really opens up the room and those skylights? Wow!

3. Kitchen in the clouds.

It might be an unusual idea, but we are so on board with the notion of converting a loft to house a brand new kitchen! Especially after viewing this successful heart of the home / mini loft conversion. You could even add a terrace, which would be great for alfresco dining, when the sun is out! 

4. Great in grey.

Clearly part of a large house, this huge master bedroom is an absolute triumph in terms of loft projects! The use of multiple skylights is inspired and has made this such a bright and happy space!

Naturally, loft conversions tend to be quite modern spaces, but there is another option! We think that this classically decorated loft bedroom is such a great example of what you can accomplish, if you keep the age of your home and the wider styling in mind.

6. All work AND play.

If you're looking at these spaces and bemoaning your small house, a loft conversion can still work for you! This bedroom might be modest, but it's perfect as a guest suite! the luxury décor touches really help to create something striking as well.

8. The ultimate chill-out zone.

Even if you don't have a specific need for a loft conversion, can you ever really put a price on having that extra room that is just designed to offer relaxation and somewhere to chill? You can always give the space a designated function later!

9. Simple design style.

You can tell that this delightful loft conversion can be found in a traditional terrace house, thanks to the inclusion of heritage touches, but it is so bright and fresh! We love the use of an age-appropriate dormer window instead of skylights too!

11. Open and huge!

Yes, there is a bedroom in this loft conversion, but more than that, there is this fantastic large landing/sitting room that seems to double up as an art showroom! Check out all the storage too! Now that's enough of a reason to carry out a conversion for us!

12. The start of an empire.

Working from home would never feel like a chore if you had a loft conversion office like this one! Private, professional and so chic, this really is a wonderful space for carving out a career, away from the hustle and bustle of a busy family area!
