Maximising loft space effectively combines clever design with functional storage solutions. Loft Ins Space specialises in turning your loft into an organised, efficient, and stylish area. Key strategies, including advanced truss shelves and versatile hanging rods, enhance your loft’s utility and aesthetics.

1. Insulated Loft Boarding


Start with Loft Ins Space’s insulated loft boarding to create a solid, energy-efficient foundation for storage. This approach not only supports your storage needs but also optimises your home’s thermal performance, keeping it warm in winter and cool in summer.

2. Truss Shelves for Smart Storage


Transform the structural elements of your loft into smart storage solutions with truss shelves. If your loft features V or W-shaped trusses, inserting a shelf between these trusses provides a robust and straightforward storage platform. Ideal for lightweight storage boxes, these shelves leverage the inherent strength of your loft’s architecture, turning awkward spaces into functional storage areas without the need for extensive modifications.

This method is particularly effective for lofts with trussed roofs, where the timber framework supports additional shelving. These shelves can host not just storage boxes but also other items to keep your loft organized and decluttered. By installing these platforms, you can make the most of every nook and cranny, ensuring no space is wasted. Even angled walls and smaller areas become valuable storage spots with the strategic placement of shelves around your loft.

Simple and Smart Storage Ideas3. Versatile Hanging Rods


Adding hanging rods between your loft trusses introduces a flexible storage solution. Perfect for old or seasonal clothing, these rods can help free up valuable closet space below. To protect garments from dust, dampness, and mould — especially in lofts that may not be perfectly insulated — consider using plastic protectors or vacuum-sealed bags. This not only keeps your items safe but also makes them easily accessible.

For those who prefer not to store clothing in the loft, rods and rails offer a secure place to hang wires, Christmas decorations, or baskets. This adaptable solution allows you to customize your storage setup, ensuring everything is visible and accessible without the need to sift through containers.

4. Loft Ladders for Easy Access


Ensure your loft is easily accessible with a high-quality loft ladder. Loft Ins Space offers a variety of ladders, from telescopic to wooden folding options, seamlessly integrating into your home and making loft access a breeze.

5. Efficient Lighting Solutions


Proper lighting transforms your loft into a welcoming storage space. Loft Ins Space can outfit your loft with various lighting options, ensuring every corner is well-lit and inviting.

6. Dust-Proof Storage Solutions


Keep your belongings clean and protected with dust-proof storage bags and boxes. These specially designed solutions are ideal for year-round keeping items free from dust and moisture.



With Loft Ins Space, your loft can become more than just a storage area — it can be a meticulously organised, accessible, and energy-efficient space. By integrating insulated boarding, truss shelves, hanging rods, and other smart solutions, you’ll unlock the full potential of your loft, making it a valuable asset to your home.
