As house prices rise and space becomes a commodity, more and more people are taking to converting their attic. Unfortunately, most attics feature a pitched roof, which usually means sloping ceilings when converting the space in your loft. However, these sloped ceilings can offer an advantage when trying to find storage space.
Often, when attics and loft conversions are completed, storage areas are not thought out beforehand. This can cause issues in the new living space, especially when the new conversion is being used as a bedroom. Floor space in conversions come at a premium and so it’s important to make the most of any unused space.
Attic Eave Storage Ideas
As sliding door experts, we’re able to help consult and design sliding doors in order to create extra storage. Below are some examples of attic storage ideas to help inspire your loft storage.
Oak and Cappuccino Sliding Doors
This customer decided to use the full width space at the end of their attic conversion to create a lengthy wardrobe. Using a combination of Oak Melamine and Cappuccino finishes, this New York sliding door fits into the decor of the room perfectly.
Budget Sliding Doors for Attic Conversions
Maximising the space in the sloped ceiling, this customer opted for the Ripon 4 Sliding Door. Using an alternating pattern of black gloss and white glass, the pattern fits in with the style of the room. This loft floor space would likely not be used, so by integrating a wardrobe, they’ve created extra storage without losing floor space.
Full Width Sliding Doors
By using the Beijing range of sliding doors this customer optimised the full width of their attic conversion. Because of the age of the building, not all the angles are simple. By taking exact measurements, we custom built the doors to match the pitched angels to create a seamless look.
Matching Sliding Wardrobes create a seamless design
Using the popular New York Sliding Door range, this customer created 2 sets of storage units that seamlessly link together. Customising the design by creating a pattern from our wide range of finishes, this customer was able to maximise their space in the attic. As you can see in the image, the obscure angles meant that custom cut doors were required.
Wooden style sliding doors
