Have you ever peeked into your loft and thought, “There’s so much potential here if only the ceiling wasn’t so low”? You’re not alone. Many homeowners believe that a low ceiling in the loft makes it impossible to utilise this space effectively. However, with Loft Ins Space, boarding your low-ceiling loft is not only possible but can also transform it into a valuable storage area. Let’s explore how you can make the most of your loft, regardless of its height.

Understanding Loft Boarding


Loft boarding involves raising boards over the joists in your loft to create a solid, flat surface. This process turns an otherwise space into a practical storage area, helping to declutter your living spaces without compromising on insulation or safety.

Can Lofts with Low Ceilings Be BoardedChallenges of Low-Ceiling Lofts


The main concern with low-ceiling lofts is headroom. Traditional boarding can raise the floor level, potentially reducing the usable space even further. Additionally, ensuring adequate insulation while maintaining airflow to prevent dampness can be more challenging in lofts with limited vertical space.
