New Year, New Home: Loft Conversions

January 19th, 2016 in All About Blinds

With the new year prompting most of us to get our bottoms into gear, many of us are turning our attention to the home. In our New Year series, we’ll be teaching you about the best blinds and curtains for the new spaces, and for those redressing the old.

And what a better place to start than right at the top. The loft.

As technologies advance and space runs scarce, more and more of homeowners are expanding their property not horizontally but vertically. We’ve seen a rise in basement flats, but the development we’re interested in is the rise of the loft conversion (excuse the pun).

Just head over to Pinterest and you’ll find the most beautiful of bedrooms, bathrooms, home cinemas and cosy nooks, all in splendid loft conversions. Just look at our board on Pinterest…

Follow Blinds 2go’s board If Only: Loft Conversions on Pinterest.

We’ve picked out the best blinds to dress your new loft conversion, so no matter which room it becomes, it’s just as stylish as the rest of your home.

For Little Feet

If you loft is a little on the short side, it can make the ideal room for children. They’ll love the idea of their own secret den on a whole other level and since it’s perfect for their size, they’ll have no worries about being able to reach those higher shelves.

The last thing you want though, is for them to be kept away at night with the bright moon or shining street lamps, so a blackout blind especially made for roof windows is key.

Our lovely new range of children’s designs mean that not only do they get a great night’s sleep, but when the blinds are drawn, they get a scene that feeds their imagination. Shop Here >

The Luxurious Retreat


If you’re hoping for a space to indulge in a little ‘me-time’ though, a private attic retreat can be the perfect solution. Escape from the troubles of the floors below and sink into a world of complete relaxation.

And to take even more stress out of your day, try a waterproof roof blind. They’re perfect for an attic bathroom! Not only will keep away any prying eyes, but the waterproof fabric means that splashes will be no trouble at all. Shop Here >

A Space To Study


If you’d rather use the space to escape from the rowdiness of the home and create a private office, then the loft might be just the place… No passing distractions, no temptation from the kitchen, just a quiet, out-of-the-way space.

And then you can block the outside world away too with one of our gorgeous roof blinds, in a rainbow of muted, pastel shades. Shop Here >

The beauty of a loft is that the only limit is your imagination. We’ve seen snug little reading nooks, filled with bookcases, cushions and fairy lights showcased on Pinterest again and again, as well as the coolest children’s play dens.

Starting your own project? Why not tell us about it? We’d love to hear.
