This Month

Have you got enough space? No matter how big our houses are, it seems we could always do with a bit more. With this in mind, we present the 10 steps to planning and costing a loft conversion. Find out all you need to know about types of extension, planning permission and hiring the right team to help you make the very most of your loft’s potential. For a beautiful example of what can be achieved, discover how Laura and Rob Ostacchini turned their roof space into a bedroom-bathroom suite any boutique hotel would envy.
Speaking of extra rooms, have you considered including a utility or boot room when you redesign your kitchen? With an increasing number of us choosing open-plan kitchen-living spaces, somewhere to tuck noisy appliances and muddy boots is fast becoming essential for a harmonious home. This was certainly the case for the Freer family. With three children and Tinks the dog, Rebecca and Simon ensured both utility and boot rooms were as important as the kitchen itself – we reveal their design story.
Elsewhere, it’s all about the year ahead, as we showcase our 2018 trends report. From muted naturals to audacious monochrome patterns, the message basically is that there’s something to suit all homes. Personally, I can’t resist metallics – who doesn’t love a bit of bling?

The February issue is out now.
