How to Make the Most of Your Roof Space

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

If you are lucky enough to have an accessible roof area, the world really is your oyster. Climb up onto your roof area and be rewarded with magnificent views across the surrounding area. But enjoying the vista is not the only thing a roof space is good for.

With a little imagination, you can really make your roof space work for you.

Here's a few ideas to get you started...

Put a Roof Garden on Your Roof

Perhaps one of the most recognised use of your roof area -, a roof garden is a little oasis if you live in a crowded cityscape.

Whether you just choose a living roof of green turf surrounded by pots of tumbling blooms, or go for an on-top-of-the-world allotment, your roof garden can be a space to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Add a Roof Terrace

A roof terrace provides the perfect social space, while allowing you to make the most of the views during your soirees.

Choose from a range of decking or patio options, add the barbecue, potted plants and the picnic table, and you are good to go!

Roof Conservatories

Want to make the most of your roof space but without being bothered by the weather? ...Consider a roof conservatory.

You get an extra living space that you can benefit from 365 days a year.

Observatory on Your Roof

Are you a budding star gazer? What better place to house an amateur observatory than the area that bit nearer the sky?

Make the most of those clear evenings by feasting on the stars to your heart’s content.

Bee Hives on Your Roof

Do you love honey? Why not produce your own, while helping the environment!

Let your living roof go wild with cottage garden flowers, grasses and herbs, then bring your bees to roost.

When you are tucking into your toast and honey you can polish your halo, knowing you have made the most of that forgotten space on your roof.

Hot Tub Area on Your Roof

A little indulgence -why not sit in your own hot tub and view the world around you – without being bothered by those around you!

Escape for 30 minutes, and dream you are in an exotic location – as the bubbles gently steam around you.

Swimming Pool on the Roof

Now we’re thinking big! What better way to use your roof space than have your very own swimming pool!

Reminiscent of roof top hotel pools, this option may not be for everyone, but we can dream... can’t we?

Brighten Your Living Space with a Skylight (or two or three!)

If you don’t want to (or can’t) use your roof space for an extra living area, you can always utilise it by adding some extra light to the living space below.

Adding some skylights in your roof can transform the natural light in your home.

Solar Panels on Your Roof

Probably one of the most common uses of your roof space, they still deserve a mention – trap that sunlight with solar panels, and do your bit to look after the environment.
