Loft or Shed for storage ?

Many people use their garden shed for storing the things they can’t throw away and want to keep close.  And whilst the shed is in some ways perfect – after all its nearby – there are drawbacks.  Sheds are at the mercy of the weather and not built to the standard of your home which can lead to damp and the things you keep there becoming damaged.

So what’s the alternative ?

By installing a loft ladder, some boarding and a light, the space over your head suddenly becomes as easily accessible as the shed in your garden.  But its drier, bigger and safer for keeping those precious memories.

More Than Loft Ladders can install the perfect ladder for your needs – wooden loft ladders, aluminium loft ladders even telescopic loft ladders if space is limited.  We can enlarge existing hatches, create new hatches and install low maintenance PVC hatch covers.  We’ll put boarding down in the loft so you can move around easily once you’re up there – and we install on raised battens so as not to compress your insulation.

We even fit a light so you can easily see what you want when you’re up there.

So all of a sudden, you’ve got loads of safe, dry and useful storage space just a few steps away – over your head.

So if you live in Brighton, Eastbourne, Swansea, Carmarthen, Nottingham, Bingham, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Derby, Nottingham, Chester, Crewe, Manchester, Warrington, Bolton, Wigan, Liverpool, leicester, Hinckley, Oldham, Stockport then give us a call.

All I want for Xmas is … a loft ladder ?

Its getting to that time of year where we’re thinking about putting up the decorations for Xmas.  And like many homeowners those decorations are probably up in the attic – that storage space over our heads that we only go into twice a year – once to get the decorations down, once to put them away.

So why not convert that poorly lit, struggling to move around in, hard to access space into an easily accessible storage space with a pull down ladder, well lit and fully boarded ?  If you live in Camarthenshire, Pembrokeshire, Nottingham, Derby, Chester, Bournemouth, Crewe, Warrington or Bolton – then your lucks in !

One of our professional installers can turn that hard to access space into a well lit useful storage unit in less than a day.  No more clambering up stepladders, no more balancing on beams in the dark – with one easy movement the ladder will be down, the light on and you can move easily and freely in your new storage space.

In no time your house will be decluttered – and with our £277 + VAT for ladder, light and 50 sq ft of boarding – its great value.  No mess, no fuss storage space – Happy Xmas all round !

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.

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.
