The Challenge


The Rees family, residing in a picturesque semi-detached house in Cardiff, found themselves facing a common issue: the need for additional storage space. With two children and an accumulation of belongings, their living spaces began to feel cramped. Their loft offered a potential solution, yet it was initially unfit for use as a storage area.

The Solution


Loft Ins Space, experts in loft transformations, conducted a comprehensive loft survey to assess the space’s structure and potential. The objective was clear: convert the loft into a secure, accessible storage space while preserving the home’s thermal efficiency.

Loft Boarding for the Rees Family in CardiffThe Process


The transformation commenced with the reinforcement of the loft floor, ensuring it could support the weight of stored items. Moisture-resistant, durable boarding was then installed, providing a stable and lasting storage surface. Accessibility was enhanced with a loft ladder, and LED lighting was installed to illuminate the area.

To address the Rees family’s concerns about maintaining energy efficiency, Loft Ins Space implemented an innovative insulation solution. By raising the boarding, they ensured that the insulation remained uncompressed and air circulation was not obstructed.

The Outcome


The project was a resounding success. The Rees family enjoyed a significant increase in storage space, allowing them to declutter their main living areas and revitalise their home. The loft became an organised, easily accessible space for storing items not regularly used.

The Benefits


  • Increased Space: The project provided the Rees family with essential additional storage space, significantly decluttering their home.
  • Energy Efficiency: The loft conversion was conducted without compromising the home’s energy efficiency, thanks to a strategic insulation solution.
  • Property Value: Beyond addressing storage needs, the conversion added value to the property, enhancing its market appeal.
  • Satisfaction: The Rees family was thrilled with the outcome, as their previously underutilised loft became a functional and valuable part of their home.
