Attic conversions are a brilliant idea for creating more space in your home, without the hassle of building an extension and losing valuable space in your garden. Lofts are incredibly versatile and can be transformed into any beautiful, liveable space you can think of. From an extra bedroom to a shower room, they can be done in a range of different styles. At Jones Brothers Loft Conversions Ltd, we’ve been covering the Kingston areas as loft conversion specialists since 1998. We always keep track of current loft design trends and on this page, are looking at the latest ones for 2018.
A trend that will continue in future years is the use of natural tones and materials. Whether it’s a polished wooden floor or exposed authentic beams, wood is especially popular. Exposed brick is also an excellent choice for homeowners who want to create a rustic, it works especially well in bespoke lofts that have a lot of natural light filtering in from Velux window installations.
A long-time favourite in interior design, black and white is a classic trend that looks wonderful together. When using monochrome colours in lofts, we would recommend using mostly white with contrasting black notes to keep the space looking light and spacious. Avoid using black for every wall and on the carpet, as this will make the room feel closed in.
Tying in nicely with the natural materials trend is the use of foliage and greenery. Adding plant life in your loft conversion adds a subtle splash of colour and indoor plants are known to provide numerous health benefits. Not only can they reduce stress by creating a Zen-like setting, but have been proven to improve the air quality by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing it back into the environment as oxygen.
To capture the industrial trend, combine the use of natural materials such as wood and metal, with rustic décor and greenery. Exposed wooden floors look fantastic in lofts and really channel the industrial feel, speak to us to see how this can be done in your Kingston home. The industrial style can also be enhanced with your choice of lighting, with pendant ceiling lights and vintage lamps working well.
