Five Ideas to Turn Your Loft Into a Warm Living Space
Lofts are as magical as they are useful spaces in a house, a true luxury. Their big problem is maintaining order inside, and that they do not become mere warehouses for old junk and everything we do not want to have in between. Cleaning can also be a challenge, as it is the most remote place in the home and we tend to neglect and forget it.
Now, have you ever considered turning your attic into a habitable place in the house? Transforming it into a bedroom, study or living room can be a great idea ... that is also accompanied by challenges. Today we propose some tips to turn your attic into a warm and comfortable space.

Converting your loft into a bedroom does not mean totally stripping it of its storage capacity. Good built-in wardrobes will be incredibly useful for you in this regard. The sloping ceilings that we like so much require custom-made cabinets in an adapted way. This, contrary to what you might think, creates very aesthetic effects.
2. The ceiling
