Many people at the moment are looking at converting their loft space and one of the most important aspects of that is the access to the loft. For most people this means loft ladders but that is not all that is required, because there is a great range of ladders which you can choose from.
When it comes to the choice that you make it is going to depend on what theme of loft you have gone for and here are a few options which you could consider when it comes to installing new loft ladders for your home.
Keeping It Fun
Many people look to lofts as a great place to create for the kids, full of playful items and created in a way that makes it like a magical land above the property. If this is the type of loft that you have opted for then you could go for a fun rope ladder design which your kids are just going to adore. Everyone loves a rope ladder because it reminds them of tree houses and the good news is that you can get rope ladders which are sturdy and safe, yet which look fun and playful.
The Minimal Option
What most people do when they open out this loft space is that they try to use it as a way to open up the house and provide additional space which then makes the home bigger. This however does present challenge with regards to the traditional loft space. The perfect solution for those who are looking for a minimal loft design is to use ladders which stack on top of the loft hatch. What this means is that when you open up that hatch from below, the ladders carefully fold out, and they usually have around 4 or 5 sections which can be folded. This is a great option for those looking for minimal design and you will find that it doesn’t fill up much space in the loft at all.
Many people seem to think that ladders should always be folded out or pulled out but if you have the space to play with then there is nothing wrong with you adding loft ladders which stay there for a long period of time. In truth you could install loft ladders which are always there but there are occasions when you may like the idea of removing them or lifting them up, perhaps to install a new floor in the home. These permanent ladders ensure that the loft is a constant space which is very much part of the home, and not just a hidden away area. For anyone who is considering opening up the loft to be a bedroom for example, this is the perfect way of ensuring that the bedroom is ver much a part of the house, and not just some afterthought or hidden away area which feels unreachable.
There is a wealth of options for you here.
