Create Your Own Loft Cinema Room

Home cinema, also called a home theater, is a term for an audio-visual system that seeks to reproduce the experience of going to a movie theater. Home theaters typically have large screen televisions or video projection systems, surround sound speakers, Blu-ray or DVD players, and comfortable seating. Many people enjoy building their own home cinemas, as it allows them to customize the experience to their own preferences.

There are a few things to consider when setting up a home cinema. First, you’ll need to decide on the size of the television or projector screen. The larger the screen, the more immersive the experience will be. You’ll also need to choose speakers that can provide good sound quality. It’s important to place the speakers correctly in order to get the best sound possible. Finally, you’ll need to choose comfortable seating that will allow you to enjoy the experience.

With a little planning and effort, you can create your own home cinema that will provide hours of enjoyment.

Convert your loft into a loft cinema room

We have in the past noticed the demand and desire for a cinema room but most of these dreams are put off due to not having enough space. So the best alternative we believe is to convert your loft area. Most lofts can be converted nowadays, even the new trussed lofts can be converted with the correct procedures in place.

So how much will a loft cinema room cost me?

Well, we provide a blank canvas – that meaning we convert your loft and supply electricity, ladder access, flooring, insulation, and storage from as little as £4500!

Many men use their man caves as a place to unwind after a long day at work, or to watch their favorite sports team on television. Some man caves even have bars or pool tables, making them the perfect place to entertain friends.

Take a look at our Man cave ideas:

Go to the cinema, in your loft!

First off on our list is the beloved loft cinema room. If you’re looking for a truly unique cinema experience, then a loft cinema room is the perfect choice. These stylish and contemporary rooms are becoming increasingly popular, and it’s easy to see why.

For all of us movie lovers, the first thing we think about when converting that old loft is to put a ridiculously large Television in there. Now squeeze in your large sofa/cinema chairs, surround sound speakers, mini-fridge, maybe a popcorn machine, and you’re at the movies!!

Loft cinema rooms offer a variety of benefits that traditional cinemas simply can’t match. For starters, they’re much more intimate and cosy, making them ideal for a night in with your closest friends or family. You can also control the environment much more easily, so you can create the perfect atmosphere for your film of choice.

And of course, there’s the added bonus of being able to watch films in the comfort of your own home!

Pac-man, Pool, foosball?

When thinking of man cave ideas, no man cave can be quite complete without your very own games room.

There are many reasons why you might want to create your own games room. Maybe you’re a big fan of video games and want a dedicated space to play them in. Maybe you have kids and they just won’t stop playing with YOUR toys.

Whatever your reasons, there are a few things you should keep in mind when creating your own games room.

First, you’ll need to make sure you have the space in your loft before you can decide whats going to go in it.

You’ll then need to decide what kind of games you want to have. Do you want console games, a billiards table to a full-size snooker table? Let your inner child go crazy.

Now its time to think about things like lighting, furniture, and decoration.

How about a home bar?

Don’t ask why this isn’t number 1. Gone are the days of overpriced alcohol and taxi fares. Your very own bar, where nobody can kick you out! like I need to sell that to you. Who wouldn’t love to be like Tom Cruise in Cocktail?

A home bar is a small, typically portable, bar used for serving alcoholic beverages at home. Home bars are becoming increasingly popular as people seek to entertain guests in their homes. Many people choose to purchase pre-made home bars, while others prefer to build their own.

Building a home bar can be a fun and rewarding project. There are many different ways to build a home bar, and the type of bar you build will depend on your personal preferences and budget. If you are looking to build a simple home bar, you can purchase a pre-made bar kit or build one yourself using basic carpentry skills. For a more sophisticated home bar, you may want to hire a professional carpenter or cabinetmaker to custom build your bar.

When building a home bar, it is important to consider the type of alcohol you will be serving. If you plan on serving mixed drinks, you will need to make sure you have all of the necessary supplies, such as a blender, liquor, mixers, and glasses. If you plan on serving beer and wine, you will need to purchase a keg cooler or wine fridge.

Another important consideration when building a home bar is the type of furniture you will use. Home bars can be built using standard kitchen cabinets, repurposed furniture, or custom-built pieces. When selecting furniture for your home bar, it is important to choose pieces that are durable and easy to clean.

Building a home bar can be a fun and rewarding project. With a little planning and creativity, you can create a space in your home that will be the perfect place to entertain guests.

A home cinema sounds like any movie buffs fantasy. There’s something very different between watching a film in your living room and watching a film in your newly converted loft cinema room.

Something almost ‘den like’ which must go back to our childhood. We have seen the loft cinema room done a number of ways from authentic vintage cinema seating, retro armchairs to ginormous beanbags for seating in comfort and style. I particularly would opt for the bean bags – simply because the harder it is for me to get up, the longer i’ll be there.

What makes a great home cinema room?

Size and layout:

The size of your room will dictate the size and layout of your home cinema setup. If you have a large room, you can go all out with a big screen and surround sound system. If you have a smaller room, you might want to consider a TV and soundbar setup.


You’ll want to make sure your home cinema room has good lighting. This means having enough light to see the screen, but not so much light that it’s distracting.


Comfort is key when it comes to seating. You’ll want to make sure you have enough seats for everyone who wants to watch, and that they’re comfortable enough to sit through an entire movie.


A good home cinema setup will have great sound. This means a surround sound system that will make you feel like you’re in the middle of the action.


A big screen is a must for a great home cinema room. But you’ll also want to make sure the picture quality is good. This means getting a TV with a high resolution and making sure your Blu-ray player or streaming device has a high-quality video output.

What are the benefits of having a home cinema room?

1. You can enjoy movies in the comfort of your own home.

2. You can control the environment, including the temperature and lighting.

3. You can choose your own movie schedule.

4. You can invite friends and family to join you for movie night.

3. Invest in a big TV or monitor

Any games room worth its salt needs a big screen to play on. If you’re planning on playing console games, then a large TV is the way to go. For PC gamers, multiple monitors are often the best option as they allow for a wider field of view. Whichever route you choose, make sure your screen is big enough to give you the best gaming experience possible.

4. Stock up on snacks and drinks

No games room is complete without a fridge full of snacks and drinks. Whether you’re looking for something to munch on between games or need a quick energy boost, having a few snacks on hand is always a good idea. And, of course, you’ll need something to wash it all down with. A mini fridge is a great way to keep your drinks cold and within easy reach.

5. Add some decoration

How To Make Your Loft Office Conversion Pay For Itself

Ever wanted to work from your own home?

If you work in a mobile capacity or would like to someday, read our article which aims to provide a little insight into the growing trend of working from home.

Working from home has increased in popularity and so has the demand for freelancers and mobile workers. If you could work from home but have put it off because of finances or just don’t want to bring work home with you. We believe we have the solution.

A loft office conversion that is completely out of sight and out of mind once you finish your workday. Fakro fold-away staircases are used which because they aren’t permanent will be folded away leaving your loft office hidden. This causes us to completely “shut out” work enabling a much easier work/life environment.

You may be thinking that a Loft conversion sounds like the best alternative but unsure where the money will come to finance this? Prices start from just £4500 and we provide an online loft conversion cost calculator to help you decide. EcoLoft believes our loft offices could pay for themselves once you take into account your current expenditure and factor in taxable assets.

Here’s a fictional case study

Read our completely made up case study of Ben to get a better picture:

Ben is a freelancer, he rents an office which is an average of 45 minutes commute from his home and has lunch in the centre each day. Ben pays £400 for the office he rents each month and charges £25/hr which he has been doing for years.

He knows that he can work from home and decides to research how he can achieve this effectively without merging his home life with his work which most would consider (myself included) very important.

Ben finds that he can convert his existing loft space into a loft office. After discovering our great website he finds that he can have his loft converted to a loft office for as little as £4500 and starts crunching some numbers.

He can afford the conversion and wants to justify his spending, so he breaks down his current expenditure for working at his office. This is broken down as follows:

Monthly outgoings whilst working at an external office

Office rent = £400 per month
£4 each day travel x 21 days work average = £84 per month
Lunch in centre £4 each day = £84 per month
16hrs lost revenue from commuting = £400

That’s a saving of £968 per month

Monthly outgoings working at home

To afford the loft office ben gets a loan for £5000. The loan which is at 8% equates to £5,827.70 over the course of 4 years which equals £121.41 per month.

Ben is now £847 better off each month!

So that is absolutely amazing and he couldn’t be happier but after Ben’s loft conversion he wonders if his new loft office has increased the value of his home. He has a number of valuations and was astounded to find that his £4500 investment has increased the value of his home. His investment of £4500 has not only added £4500 to his home but it has doubled – adding £9000!

Okay, this figure may be fictional but based on recent surveys such as one outlined in the guardian have documented properties adding in a surplus of £20,000 to their home from a £10,000 loft conversion investment.

Also to further save money many may not realise that if they decide to work from home in any capacity when completing self-assessment they can deduct certain expenses against their household bills!

This includes electricity, water, mortgage, etc. Calculations can be made online using websites such as this website.

How things have changed in 2022

Working from home has not only become an increasingly popular trend in recent years, but it’s now became a necessity for most people around the globe.

Since the covid-19 pandemic, it looks like this trend is here to stay.

And let’s not forget the increased productivity that can come with working in a quiet, comfortable environment.

Working from home can be a bit chaotic, so it’s important to get organized. Make sure you have a dedicated workspace set up, with all the supplies you need. This will help you stay focused and productive.

2. Set a schedule.

It can be tempting to just lounge around in your pajamas all day when you’re working from home. But this can actually make it harder to get work done. Instead, set a schedule for yourself and stick to it. Get up at the same time each day, take regular breaks, and so on. This will help you stay on track.

3. Stay connected.

It’s easy to feel isolated when you’re working from home. But there are plenty of ways to stay connected with your colleagues and others. Use video conferencing, chat apps, and so on to stay in touch.

4. Take care of yourself.

Working from home can be stressful, so it’s important to take care of yourself. Make sure you get enough rest, eat healthy meals, and exercise regularly. This will help you stay healthy and productive.

5. Have fun.

Working from home doesn’t have to be all work and no play. Make time for things you enjoy, such as hobbies, socializing, and so on. This will help you relieve stress and stay balanced.


So I’m sure you will agree there really is no reason not to convert your loft into a useable, modern loft office and it really can pay for itself. To find out more about our prices of loft conversions check out our loft conversion cost page. Prices are transparent and honest just like us.

More Loft Conversion Ideas

Loft conversions are one of the most popular types of home improvement projects in the UK. In fact, it’s a popular option when you need more space, without having to move. The cost of a new home keeps increasing, making it expensive to buy and new home and move.

If you’re considering a loft, do you have ideas on what you’d like to do with the converted space? If not, that’s OK. It can be difficult coming up with ideas, so we’ve put together a few loft conversion ideas and things to consider with each type of conversion. We hope you find something here that inspires your own loft conversion project!

Working with the Space

One of the first things to consider is the shape of your loft. Does it have some odd angles, sloping ceilings, etc.? These can create some charming spaces when included in the conversion design. However, they can also present problems, unless you have a good design to work with. A great design needs to consider the intended use of the space and then incorporate the features of the loft.

It’s a good idea to hire a specialist builder who has experience with loft conversions. And an architect to review the drawings of your conversion plan is also a good idea. Adding in a builder and an architect do add to the cost of the loft conversion but consider this money well spent. They’ll keep you from making some of the most common mistakes that can occur with a loft conversion project.

In the end, with a great design that incorporates the quirky angles of the loft, you’ll have a wonderful, usable new space. Not only that, but your home’s value will also go up if the conversion is done right.

Living Room Loft & Natural Light

What could be more natural than creating a living room in the loft? Many people choose to convert their loft into a living room. It’s a great space to use for entertaining family and friends, adding a private space for older kids, or evening making it into TV and entertainment room. The loft could be the perfect place to chill after long hours at work, or perhaps just to read.

You’ll need to remember that the loft can be a great living space; however, there’s a lot of natural light up there. You can take in the views from up there, but also consider the warmth of the sun during the summer when the light is bright for long hours during the day.

It may be necessary to have light-blocking blinds on the windows, in order to keep the new living area cooler in the summer and minimize light when watching TV. In addition, you may want to think about adding sliding or French doors that open out onto a small balcony (if space allows). This is a great way to improve airflow, bring in fresh air, and even make the space feel a little larger. These additions, however, will depend on the type of conversion and the type of roofline you have.

A Hobby Room in the Loft

Have you thought about using the loft as a hobby room? The loft can be converted into a place where you can enjoy your favorite hobby. Do you create crafts or sew? Or do you enjoy playing the guitar or another musical instrument? The loft conversion would make a wonderful music room.

If you plan on activities that can be noisy for the loft space, then you should consider adding soundproofing to the conversion plans. This is especially necessary if your new space will share a wall with a neighbor’s home, or to allow everyone in your own home to enjoy some quiet while you’re playing.

To soundproof the new space, you can consider adding:

  • Thermal insulation in the ceilings, walls, and floors—this provides some noise insulation.
  • High-density acoustic plasterboard also helps to soundproof
  • Carpet is also great
  • Foam tiles added to the walls and ceilings, can also be great soundproofing

Create a Master Bedroom in the Loft

If you need space to get away from the world, then converting the loft into a master bedroom could be a great choice for you. In fact, this is a very popular option when it comes to loft conversions.

When creating a bedroom space, keep in mind that you’ll want to add window coverings to enhance your privacy. And the natural light coming in will also be quite intense, so adding light-blocking blinds may be a good choice. They’ll block the light and keep out the heat of summer, too.

And remember you’ll want to add clothes and bedding storage to your new bedroom. The space under the eaves may be too low for freestanding cabinets or shelving. However, you might consider having bespoke furnishings created for your new room.

Create two bedrooms

If you need to add more than one extra bedroom to your home, consider splitting your loft conversion into 2 smaller rooms with a partition wall. this is very common in loft conversions and can sometimes double the amount of rooms your home has. A twin bedroom loft conversion can provide you with the extra space you need, without taking up too much space in your home.

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when planning to add a two bedroom loft conversion. First, you’ll need to make sure that your loft is large enough to accommodate two rooms. Second, you’ll want to consider the layout of your home and the amount of natural light that each room will get. And third, you’ll need to make sure that your staircase will accommodate access to two bedrooms.

The Loft May Be the Perfect Kid Space

Do your kids need more space for their toys? Do you regularly have to walk over a floor that’s covered in plastic connector blocks? We feel for you! If you’re often having to step around those blocks, then maybe it’s time to consider converting the loft into a kids’ room.

Think of it—a space where your kids can play, store their toys, enjoy their hobbies, etc. Your house will be clutter-free, and you’ll no longer suffer from stepping on sharp, plastic connector blocks!

Here, again, just as with the bedroom conversion, you may want to consider bespoke storage options. The space under the eaves will make it difficult to use store-bought storage units. With cabinets, shelves, etc. built specially to conform to the angles of the room, you’ll create a lovely play area for the kids.

Don’t Forget to Add a Bathroom

With a loft conversion, it’s always a good idea to add a bathroom to the new space. If you’re adding a bathroom to a kids’ playroom or a hobby room, you can probably get away with including only a toilet and a sink. For a bedroom, you’ll want to add a full bathroom, with at least a shower, if not a tub.

A converted loft is a great way to add more space and value to your home. The loft area can be used in almost any way you’d like, just remember to work with the walls and ceilings. A great design will ensure you have a beautiful room when it’s all completed.

Maximise storage in your home


There are many ways to maximise storage in your home. One way is to convert your loft into usable storage space. Another way is to make shelving units underneath stairways. You can also convert your garage into a proper storage area. By doing these things, you can create more storage space in your home, making it more organized and efficient.

Another way to create more storage space in your home is to declutter. This means getting rid of items that you no longer need or use. This can free up a lot of space, allowing you to store other things in their place. You can also consider renting a storage unit if you have items that you want to keep but don’t necessarily need on a regular basis. This can be a great way to create extra space in your home without having to get rid of anything.

If you are looking for ways to maximise storage in your home, there are many options available to you. By taking some time to explore all of your options, you can find the best solution for your needs. This will help you keep your home more organised and efficient, making it a more enjoyable place to live.


Adding shelving to your under stairway space is a great way to add extra storage without taking up too much space. You can use this shelving to store things like holiday decorations, out-of-season clothing, or even non-perishable food items.

To get started, you will need to measure the space under your stairs to determine how much shelving you will need. Once you have your measurements, head to your local hardware store or home improvement center to purchase the supplies you will need.

Next, you will need to install the shelving. This can be done by screwing the shelving into the wall or by using brackets. If you are using brackets, be sure to use ones that are rated for the weight of the shelving and the items you will be storing on it.

Once your shelving is installed, you can start filling it with whatever you need to store. Be sure to leave some space at the top for taller items. And, if you have any items that are particularly fragile, be sure to store them on the top shelf.


There are many ways you can use your garage to maximise storage space.

By using some simple organisation techniques, you can make the most of this often neglected area in your home.

One way to utilise your garage for storage is by installing shelves. This will give you a designated place to store items such as boxes, tools and other household items. You can purchase shelves specifically for garages at most hardware stores.

Another great way to organise your garage is by using hooks and hangers. This is perfect for storing garden equipment, sports gear and other larger items. You can also use these methods to hang bikes from the ceiling or walls, freeing up valuable floor space.

If you have a lot of smaller items that need to be stored, consider using baskets or bins. This way you can easily see what is inside and quickly grab what you need. Label each basket or bin so you know exactly where everything is. You can also use your garage for seasonal storage.

If you have items that you only need during certain times of the year, such as holiday decorations or summer sports gear, keep them in the garage. This will declutter your home and make it much easier to find what you need when you need it.


Many of us have lofts that are nothing more than dusty, cobwebbed spaces that are home to nothing more than old boxes, forgotten Christmas decorations and spiders.

But what if your loft could be so much more?

You have so much excess room in your property than you think. Most homeowners have completely forgotten about this huge storage potential right above their heads.

Your loft can be transformed into a spacious and practical storage area that will free up so much potential for space in your home. The best part is that loft conversions can be very cheap if they are only converted to hold storage.

Another way to create more storage space is by using vertical space. Tall shelving units and bookcases are perfect for this.

4. Use stackable boxes

Stackable boxes are a great option if you don’t have much floor space in your loft conversion. They allow you to store items on top and underneath them, so they take up less room than regular boxes and other types of storage when stacked together one on top of another.

Hooks are another excellent way to save space in your loft conversion, especially if you have limited floor or shelf space. You can use them to hang coats, towels, bags or anything else that you need to keep off the floor and out of the way.

Does having a loft conversion increase your property value?

A loft conversion can add significant value to your property, depending on the size and location of the property. In some cases, a loft conversion can add up to 20% to the value of your home. This makes it an excellent investment for those looking to improve their property’s value.

However, it is important to note that not all loft conversions are created equal. The quality of the conversion will play a big role in how much value it adds to your home. Be sure to work with a reputable contractor like Ecoloft, who has experience in performing high-quality loft conversions. This will help ensure that you get the most value for your money.

Adding an extra bedroom to your property

One factor that could affect the value of your property is the amount of extra living space that a loft conversion can provide. If you live in an area where there is high demand for housing, then creating additional living space could make your home more attractive to potential buyers and help to increase its value.

Adding an extra room to your property can add value in a number of ways.

Firstly, it can simply provide more space for potential buyers or renters, making your property more attractive. Secondly, if the extra room is used as a bedroom, this can increase the property’s rental value or selling price.

Finally, depending on the location of the extra room, it could be used to create a unique feature or selling point for your property. Ultimately, whether or not adding an extra room will add value to your property depends on a number of factors – but it’s definitely worth considering!


A consideration you may want to take into account is the cost of the conversion itself. Although converting your loft can be a significant investment, if it is done properly it can add a significant amount of value to your property alongside other benefits such as saving energy due to less heat loss.

As you can see, there are a number of potential benefits to adding an extra room to your property. If you’re thinking about making this change, be sure to weigh up all the pros and cons before making a decision. And, as always, consult with a professional if you’re unsure about anything!

Does a loft conversion save energy

Does a loft conversion make your property more energy efficient? 

A loft conversion can increase your property’s energy efficiency in a number of ways.

By increasing the insulation in your loft you can reduce heat loss and help keep your home warm. A loft conversion can help to prevent heat loss in your home as it provides an extra layer of insulation. By keeping the heat in, you will use less energy to heat your home as we all know, heat rises so keeping the heat inside your home will therefore save money on your energy bills.

In addition, a loft conversion can provide an opportunity to install solar panels or other renewable energy technologies, which would generate electricity and help save on energy costs in the long term.

You could also install energy-efficient lighting as part of your conversion, which would further reduce your energy bills.

Ultimately, the level of energy efficiency improvement you achieve from a loft conversion will depend on a number of factors, including the specific measures you take and the existing energy performance of your property. However, taking steps to improve your home’s energy efficiency is always a good idea and can save you money on your energy bills in the long term.

how much more energy efficient does a loft conversion make your property?

There is no definitive answer to this question as it depends on a number of factors, including the type and quality of insulation used, the size and layout of the loft conversion, and the climate in which you live.

However, on average, a loft conversion could make your property around 25% more energy efficient. This could not only save you money on your energy bills but help to reduce your carbon footprint.

If you are considering a loft conversion, it is worth speaking to a professional here at Ecoloft to get an accurate idea of how much more energy efficient it could make your property. They will be able to advise you on the best type of insulation and other measures to take in order to maximise the energy efficiency of your loft conversion.

Loft insulation

loft insulation is one of the most effective ways to insulate your home and keep it warm in winter and cool in summer. It’s also one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways to improve your home’s energy efficiency.

There are two main types of loft insulation:

roll and board. Roll is the most common type and is made from fiberglass or mineral wool. Proper installation is key to maximising the energy efficiency.

You need to make sure that there are no gaps between the insulation and the loft floor or walls which would otherwise allow the warm air to escape. Which is why we always recommend hiring a professional company like Ecoloft.

Board Insulation is slightly more expensive, but it’s also more effective at preventing heat loss. It’s made from rigid foam or fiberboard and can be glued or nailed into place.

If your home is more than 30 years old, it’s likely that you don’t have any loft insulation at all. Even if you do, it may not be thick enough to make a significant difference to your energy bills. Adding extra insulation is a great way to save money and keep your home comfortable all year round.

There are a few things to consider before you contact a professional to install loft insulation. First, you need to make sure that your loft is big enough. It needs to be at least 60 centimeters deep and have a minimum headroom of 1.2 meters. You also need to make sure that there’s good ventilation in the loft to prevent condensation – we can advise accordingly.

Loft insulation is an important part of making your home more energy-efficient, so it’s worth hiring a professional to do it right.

how does a loft conversion save energy?

A loft conversion can save energy in a number of ways. Firstly, by increasing the insulation in your home, you can reduce heat loss through the roof. Secondly, by creating additional living space, you can reduce your overall heating and lighting requirements. Finally, by installing energy-efficient windows and doors, you can further reduce your energy consumption.

Additionally, a loft conversion can also help to reduce noise pollution from outside as it acts as a sound barrier.

As a result, converting your loft can not only save you money on your energy bills, but also help to reduce your carbon footprint. So if you’re looking for a way to make your home more energy-efficient, a loft conversion could be the perfect solution.
