Converting the loft is a great way to add extra space to your home and value to your property. Whether you’ve opted to create a master suite, home office or extra living space for your home, it’s important to find the right window treatment for your loft conversion.
We are often contacted by many homeowners looking to find the best window dressing for their new or existing loft conversion. As the windows found in lofts are of the trickier locations to work with, finding the right window solution is paramount.
The different window solutions for loft conversions
If you’ve got a dormer conversion, you may discover hanging curtains can be challenging. The way curtains have to be hung can also end up blocking some of the light, making your new room a gloomier place to spend time.
In a small loft conversion, or in addition to dormers, you might have incorporated skylights and wondered if you need to leave the window uncovered, resulting in a room that feels exposed. You may have thought the only solution was a blind, that blocks out sunlight when you require privacy.
The best window solution for loft conversions is plantation shutters. Loft plantation shutters are bespoke and made to fit loft windows, whether they’re dormers, skylights or shaped windows. Custom made for each window, plantation shutters fit precisely and let in maximum light while maintaining privacy levels.
Unlike curtains and blinds, shutters aren’t just open or shut. With adjustable louvres, loft plantation shutters can create the perfect atmosphere and lighting all day long.
Plantation shutters also help to keep your loft conversion snug as they provide effective insulation in the winter. In summer, when an attic can become warm, the loft plantation shutter louvres can be adjusted to prevent direct sunlight overheating the room while maintaining the flow of fresh air.
