Get the concept right
What is the general idea of the made-to-measure loft storage look? Do you need fitted shelving or you would like to have it with the doors? What side of the loft would you like to install it? Are there any other plans you have for the loft? Careful conception is crucial because it can make a big difference between a white elephant project and a worthy investment.

Choose the furniture fitting company
Even if you do have a clear picture about what you need and want, you still would require an expert to help you out at this stage, it is crucial to get the right furniture fitting company. Apart from choosing the type and look of the wardrobe you might want to get the professional’s opinion as for some particular reasons some door types might not be fitted in the particular room or some colours would not look fancy with that particular lightning. The smart thing is to work with one company from the design stage to the end.
Decide what you want
What type of loft storage do you want? You can make this decision depending on:
- Space – what is the square footage available? What is the ceiling height? This is the biggest factor influencing whatever design you need.
- Style – Do you want a bespoke spray-painted wardrobe or a contemporary design? Does the available space allow hinged doors, or sliding ones would be the best solution? Do you require doors at all – open-plan fitted shelves could be great for games rooms, storing photos or just souvenirs.
What materials and colours do you like? It is important to choose the options that you like the most to make sure you enjoy the room itself. Sloped ceiling wardrobes and fitted shelving can make the loft room look cosy and bring a new life to it.
