If your house has very high ceil­ings or there is a void in one of the rooms, think out­side the box, like these clever own­ers have done, and in­stall a loft in the room. This will pro­vide valu­able ad­di­tional floor space as well as make the room cosier and more invit­ing.

The in­stal­la­tion of an open lad­der-style stair­case keeps the room light and airy and adds easy ac­cess to the new level. Up­stairs can be used for just about any­thing – a study, hang­out space for teenagers, a TV room – and un­der­neath can eas­ily be­come a sleep­ing space, read­ing nook, a li­brary area or a fan­tas­tic kids’ play­room.

Look up If you can’t go out, go up! This works best in fam­ily rooms and bed­rooms.
