How to Maximise Your Loft Space

We’d all love some more space in our homes, but the truth is that most of us do have space that we’re simply not utilising. Only a small percentage of people actually use their loft — many never go up there at all.

But with just a few small changes to your loft, you can transform it into a beautiful storage area, giving you more free space throughout the rest of your home. In this month’s article, discover how you can maximise your loft space to enhance your entire home.

What is a Loft Storage Room?

A loft storage room is precisely how it sounds — the loft is altered and enhanced into a room perfect for storage. While you may currently be able to store a few boxes in your loft, it will likely be cramped, dirty and inaccessible. A loft storage room changes all that, transforming your loft into a convenient, clean and, most importantly, spacious area to store a variety of items.

Loft Storage Rooms transform lofts into a spacious storage area. By altering various elements of your loft, they maximise your loft space so that you can enjoy a clutter-free home. 

Loft Boarding

Loft boarding is key to increasing loft space and making your loft a much more useful part of your home. 

Loft boarding is the process of installing boards into your loft to create a stable base. Loft boarding is extremely useful for creating a ‘floor’ to move around and store boxes on. While it’s crucial for accessibility, many homeowners are unaware that loft boarding can create upwards of 50% extra usable space. Not only will it be easier to store items in your loft, but you’ll be able to fit far more boxes up there, allowing you to remove the clutter from the rest of your home.

Loft ladders

Loft ladders increase accessibility to your storage room by providing an easy way to get in and out of your loft. The benefits of loft ladders include:

Extra safety

Loft ladders are stable and provide a safe way to enter and exit your loft.


Loft ladders are the quickest and easiest way to enter and exit your loft. They fold away as you close your loft so that no space is taken up.

Storage boxes

Maximising space in your loft is all about managing your items for storage. If you use suitable storage boxes, you can fit more items into one space.

  • You can pack an assortment of items in a storage box and easily move it around
  • Storage boxes can be stacked on top of one another to utilise all available space
  • Plastic storage boxes help protect your items, so that you can keep items in your loft without risk of getting them damp or dirty
  • There are various sizes of storage boxes to choose from, so you’ll be able to store all reasonably sized items
