The loft is increasingly being used as extra living space and a loft spiral staircase can help you make the most of this valuable space.

Many of us are looking to maximise the amount of living space in our homes. Property prices are on the rise again and mortgages are becoming more difficult to obtain. The cost of moving home is also getting bigger with a whole host of fees from estate agents, solicitors, removal costs and stamp duty. And don’t get us started on the stress levels. It’s perhaps not surprising that we homeowners are staying put and making the most of the space we have. Basement conversions are flourishing but for most of us it is the loft that offers the best way to extend the amount of living space and add a further bedroom, bathroom or study/playroom etc. No wonder a 2011 survey found that loft conversions topped the list for adding value to property.
