Designing a Loft Conversion For Your Kids

When school's out for summer, what seems like an exciting six weeks off for the children can feel a lot longer for the parents. Keeping children entertained during the summer break can put a strain on your wallet. While a family vacation may fill up a week of their time, you'll still have four or five weeks to fill. Sure, there are free activities like picnics, trips to the park, games in the garden, or a drive to the nearest beach. However, as your children grow older, these simple activities may no longer excite them.

They'd like to see their friends, of course, but having a house full of younger kids can be messy, and older kids like to blast their music. However, there is a solution that can keep both the younger and older kids happy - designing a loft conversion specifically for them.

Creating a dedicated space in your home exclusively for your children is an absolutely brilliant concept. Countless Econoloft customers have transformed their loft conversion spaces into delightful kid's play areas or trendy teen dens. The best part is, as your child grows older, this versatile space can be transformed into anything you desire.

Kid's Play Area

Designing a loft conversion specifically for your children is an amazing idea that can bring both convenience and joy to your home. One of the many benefits of having a dedicated space for your younger children to play is the ability to keep all their toys and games in one place. It creates a creative environment where mess is allowed and parents don't feel the constant need to tidy up. This space not only provides a sense of independence for your kids but also teaches them valuable skills on how to play on their own or with their siblings and friends.

Don't break the bank on fancy furniture because kids simply aren't concerned with the latest trends. However, it is important to have sturdy, low-level pieces that are easy to clean. Avoid carpets, but consider using washable rugs to add a cozy touch. Opt for easy-to-clean paint on the walls. To keep the space versatile as your children grow older, stick to neutral decor that can be easily updated.

Ensuring the safety of younger children is important. Since they won't require any electrical equipment, it's best to avoid any wires in the space. To further enhance safety, make use of plug socket covers and when installing blinds, ensure that there are no cords that may pose a tripping hazard.

Teen Den

As children grow older, their needs evolve, and your playroom will transform from a childish space to a sophisticated area. The vibrant primary colors will fade away, making room for a more mature aesthetic. Toys and games will become a thing of the past, as this space will now revolve around the world of electronics. A large TV, gaming consoles, and sound systems will take center stage, creating an environment perfect for teenage entertainment.

This space can also serve as a study room, providing your teenager with a quiet and uninterrupted environment to focus on their homework, away from the distractions of siblings or parents.Allow them complete creative freedom when it comes to the design. After all, this space is theirs, so it doesn't have to perfectly match the rest of your home. However, it's important to consider the future and make sure that the design style doesn't require too much effort to change or reclaim the room later on.

One of the many advantages of creating a dedicated space like this in your home is that it eliminates the inevitable arguments that arise from sharing common areas. No more debates over volume control or who gets to choose what to watch. Additionally, this specially designed loft conversion provides a safe and secure environment for your children and their friends to hang out, giving you peace of mind knowing where they are and who they are spending time with.
