You should check out the wide range of Bolton loft ladders that we are able to provide you with at More Than Loft Ladders right now. You can choose from a huge selection of them in order to choose the ideal one for your property, and you can then have it fitted to ensure you are able to access your loft space safely.

Many people seem to forget that gaining access to your loft space by using a rickety old ladder can be quite dangerous, which is why you should always have a professional loft ladder fitted instead. We also have a lot of other loft essentials at More Than Loft Ladders at the moment, so you can get your entire loft space sorted in the nick of time.

If you would like to get started on planning your loft redevelopment, you should sit down and think about what you would like your loft space to be used for once it is complete. Whether it is to be used for storage or as a new room, you should consider putting down loft boarding, so that you won’t have to worry about balancing on any loft beams in order to get around within the room. This too can end up being very dangerous.

You should also think about getting your loft properly insulated if you haven’t already done so. This should actually be at the very top of your list of things to do, as it can help you to save a great deal of money.

At More Than Loft Ladders we can also provide you with loft hatches, to ensure your loft space is safely secured off, as well as loft lighting. No matter what kind of space you would like to create within your home, planning your loft conversion and renovation really couldn’t be any easier.

Jonathan’s advertising has already started in Chaddesden and Alrewas with a strong response from consumers.


Make sure your Bolton loft is as safe as possible

If you would like to begin using your loft space as an actual room, rather than leaving it to gather dust and go unused, you will first need to make sure that it is safe enough. A lot of lofts are left with revealed loft joists and are not insulated properly, as well as having inefficient loft ladders and hatches. All of this can make things very difficult, especially if you would like to be able to get up into your loft on a regular basis.

There are lots of different ways in which you could make the best use of your loft space. One of the most popular is to use it as storage space, which can free up a lot of space throughout the rest of the house. For example, you could go through your bookshelves and chests of drawers and find all of the non-essential items that you are currently storing in them. Then, simply box everything up and put it all into the loft to store there. This is an excellent way to keep important items such as old files, sentimental items and other family heirlooms that you don’t need to store in the main house.

If you are interested in investing in loft ladders Bolton company More Than Loft Ladders has more than enough of them for you to choose from. At More Than Loft Ladders we can help you to choose the ideal loft ladder for your property, so you can create as safe a room as possible. You won’t need to worry about clambering up any rickety old ladders in order to gain access to your loft anymore. Instead, you can use a secure and modern ladder that is fixed to the wall and which won’t pose any danger to you when climbing up it.

Installed a modern loft hatch would also be advisable, as it can make getting into your loft much easier. A lot of old houses have loft hatches that are not completely secured, so they lift vertically off the entrance. This can make it difficult to get into the loft though, whereas a newer loft hatch can be hinged and so can be easily opened. They are also often insulated, meaning you can keep your home nice and warm.

We can provide you with lots of different services at More Than Loft Ladders so that you can get your loft up to the specified safely standards as soon as possible.


5 ways to create more space in your Cheshire home

5 ways to create more space in your Cheshire home 

If you want to create a spacious property, consider these five tips:

1)      Store items in your loft

At More Than Loft Ladders, one of the best providers of Cheshire loft ladders, we can assist you in creating additional space in your loft. We can transform your existing loft space into one that is useable and spacious, so you can easily store lots of items in it. You’ll be able to invest in loft boarding, loft hatches, loft lighting, loft insulation and loft ladders with us, and before long your previously waster loft space will become an invaluable room in the house!

2)      Sell unwanted items

This is a great way to earn a bit of money at the same time as clearing some space within your home. As you are sorting through the many odds and ends you may have in your property, you can decide which you would like to keep and which you think would be better used by someone else. You could sell them online or at a car boot sale, whichever suited you better!

3)      Buy additional cupboards and bookshelves

Alongside creating more space in your loft, you might find that putting up additional shelving can help you to keep surfaces clear. This will also give you a chance to keep the more important items close to hand, whereas things such as Christmas decorations and old books can be kept in the loft.

4)      Throw away items

No one likes to get rid of things, but you will probably find that there are certain items you have kept onto for much longer than necessary. If you come across any such items, don’t be afraid to get rid of them once and for all rather than cluttering up your loft with them!

5)      Set up a recycling system

Once you have created the ideal loft to store items in and you have put up additional shelving units, you should consider setting up a recycling system that will help you to keep on top of things from then on. For example, rather than holding onto old magazines, put them in your paper recycling bin or take them to the recycling centre. Many other products can be recycled, including old appliances and pieces of furniture.

So you see, there are many ways to create a spacious home. If you would like to get a head start, call More Than Loft Ladders today to find the best solution for you.

How to transform your loft into a safe environment

While you may not want to magic your loft space into a useable room such as a bedroom or study, even if you are using is as an effective storage space it still needs to be safe.

Why you should convert your loft space

As a homeowner, you’ll know how important it is to keep your property in the best of condition. Chances are though, there are lots of things you’d like to do to your home to transform it into your dream house. Many people find that their property becomes far too cluttered over a number of years, and this is often one of their biggest house-related complaints.

Even those that don’t consider themselves to hang onto items for their sentimental value are sure to find themselves with a certain amount of clutter. You may have cupboards full to the brim with things you no longer need, but which you can’t bring yourself to throw away. There’s no need to have a ruthless spring clean and junk all of your valuable items though, when you can just put them into storage.

You wouldn’t even need to pay for an expensive storage locker either, which can end up being a real drain on your finances after a while. If you really want to clear the clutter out of the main areas of your home and create a spacious environment for you and your family, why not store everything in your loft?

A lot of people have lofts in their home, but they don’t use them for storage. Whether this is because they don’t realise that they can, or they have simply never got around to fixing them up for the job, now is the time to make use of them.

Of course, if you want to provide yourself with safe access to your loft, you should invest in loft ladders in Cheshire. Using an unstable ladder to access your loft would be very unwise, as this is how accidents can happen. Instead, you should have a fixed ladder fitted that you can easily pull down to climb up to your loft.

You won’t need to clamber up a rickety ladder anymore once you have had a brand new loft ladder fitted from More Than Loft Ladders, a company specialising in helping to provide families throughout Cheshire with cost effective space solutions.

Along with loft ladders, you can also invest in loft boarding, loft hatches, loft lighting and loft insulation from More Than Loft Ladders. With them, you can get all of your home storage issues quickly resolved, so you can start de-cluttering your home.
