When fully renovating a loft area, an essential step is often redoing the flooring. Factors come into play, such as whether it will be used for storage, living, or as an office. Choose the type of flooring suited to each activity's purpose.

Measure the entire area that needs flooring. If you are on a tight budget, you may choose not to install flooring in hidden areas, such as inside closets.
Types of Flooring
Carpet, hardwood, vinyl and ceramic tile are common flooring materials. Renewable products like cork or bamboo cost more than the cheapest carpet, vinyl or wood laminates, but if the loft is small, you may be able to splurge. Marmoleum is a product like linoleum that can be installed with customised designs to define your space.
Bring all the materials and tools you need up to the loft before you begin. If your loft is a living space, you may already have a staircase and railings in place. If not, remain aware of where you are working at all times. Don't take an extra step back with your hands full of tools and fall off the edge.
