Loft wardrobe ideas to maximise your attic spaceThere are many different configurations to consider when thinking about loft wardrobes and under-eaves storage. Every loft is different, and it’s important to use space efficiently so that every inch is put to good use. To help you choose the best attic wardrobe for you, take a look at some of our favourite eaves storage solutions below.
Fitted wardrobes on a sloping ceilingChoose any product from our fitted wardrobe or sliding wardrobe door range and get it built into your slanted ceiling with the help of our wall liners. It creates a finish that’s so clean-cut, you’ll barely even notice whether the ceiling’s sloped or not.
Create a loft walk-in wardrobe with room dividersRoom dividers give you the option to completely section off parts of your attic to create a beautiful walk-in loft wardrobe. This option is particularly good for very low ceilings because it allows you to fill this section with internal storage, like shoe racks or drawers.
Add drawers to your under eaves storageUsing both wardrobes and drawers in your eaves storage is another great way to make the most out of a particularly low ceiling. By choosing drawers that are the same finish as your wardrobes, you’ll create a seamless look that’s perfectly blended into the shape of your attic.
Create an under eaves storage wall
If it’s general attic storage you’re after rather than loft wardrobes, a feature wall with shelving and drawers is ideal. You can create an under eaves storage wall by picking the exact components you need to fit your space, whether that’s floating shelves, drawer stacks, rails or shoe racks.
