Let’s face it; human beings dislike space. If you have space in your apartment, whether it’s loft space, attic space, or just rooms you don’t know what to do with, you want to fill that room in.
But what can you put there? Sure it’s great in theory to fill in all of those holes in your everyday life, but how do you put it into practice? This is especially difficult in the case of loft space since it’s just hanging there.
Thankfully, there’s a solution.
You can easily turn the space that hangs in your house into the room of your dreams. But you need to know-how. This article will walk you through all you need to know about transforming attic space.
Make a Room
If you have a bunch of space below your room that you’re just begging to use for something, you can feel frustrated. If only there were a room up there.
Thankfully, there’s a solution. Buy yourself some loft boards and joists. These are products designed specially to turn your space into a room where you can do whatever you want.

You’re going to want a way to access the new space you’re creating. Consider investing in loft ladders for small spaces or loft stairs for small spaces.
If you put all of this together, you’ll wind up with a new room — and practically a whole new mini floor — for you to use in no time.
Now that you know how you want to create your loft, it’s time to think about what you want to do with it. Depending on the size of your loft, you can turn it into a whole mega-structure-in-itself or just use it to store a few things. The options are endless.
We suggest finding some middle ground.
If you’re someone who owns many books that you don’t know what to do with, consider investing in a couple of bookshelves. You’ll be able to move the bookshelves up into your loft and turn that space into your very own library.
If you’re someone who loves games, consider turning your loft into your very own game room. Once you start thinking outside of the box on how you can use loft space, the sky is the limit.
Use Your Loft Space
Nobody likes space — especially space that you can’t do anything with. If you’ve found yourself with too much loft space in your home, it’s time to start putting it to use.
Once you figure out how to make a room out of your loft space, do all the research on the materials you need, and figure out what you want to use the room for, you’re well on the way to creating the loft space of your dreams.
