Dreaming of a loft conversion

As I sit here writing this, I am sat on my sofa, cushions all around me. I have a cup of tea to my right and there is silence. Sounds wonderful right…wrong. As I take my glance above my laptop I see the chaos that surrounds me. I see the toys that are supposed to be in one corner, scattered all over the floor and general mess which the girls have created.

I’m sat here wishing we had more space. Suddenly the house seems very small. We live in the middle of a block of townhouses so we will never be able to extend. The only thing we could do would be to convert our attic.

Now I know chaos and mess comes with the territory of having kids but I feel like I need an area where I can just shut off. A quiet, place of my own would be ideal for when I am working.

Converting the attic would be a dream. I would have it monochrome styled as I think that’s simple but modern and it wouldn’t be too distracting for when I was working.

I’d like some motivational quote prints on the walls and some black and white pictures of our family.

I’d like it to be really light and airy. I’d have two windows either side like the roof windows of solstro. This would create so much light and make it a bright, serene place.

I’d also have a comfy chair or day bed in the corner. This would be for if I fancied reading a book.

How would you create your space if you could convert your attic? All that’s left for me to do is to convince my hubby.

  1. We are in the process of moving because our house it too small. We really wanted to convert our loft but we just needed the space for storage.

  2. My sister is having a loft conversion. I'm very jealous. We have plans for a garage conversion when we have saved up but won't be for a few years... maybe the lottery fairy...
