The only way is up with Derbyshire developer's top floor top tips

With a home serving as a sanctuary amidst the stresses of life, David Wilson Homes is offering fresh inspiration on how to utilise the extra space in its three storey homes in Ashbourne.

The leading developer is currently building homes at Ramblers’ Gate on Old Derby Road, a number of which are three storey, five double bedroom Lichfield style properties with a wide scope for personalisation and relaxation.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “For many homebuyers the spare rooms are versatile spaces to make your own, and with a recent shift in the priorities of our customers, we’ve compiled our innovative ways to make best use of the top floor.”

“Our Lichfield style home is beautifully designed and whilst growing families might use the top floor to give their teenage children a bit of independence, there are many creative uses for the 2,500 square ft area.”

David Wilson Homes’ top spare room suggestions are:

Set up your home office

A peaceful area to work in would be perfect for working professionals and families with children needing to complete their school work from home.

Opting to use a top floor room as a study would also provide an opportunity to develop an office space away from the hustle and bustle of the ground floor, making a peaceful area to work from home.

Achieve your goals in a home gym

For those still striving to conquer their fitness goals, using the spare room to create a home gym may be the perfect solution.

Having gym equipment at home means homeowners can maintain their daily exercise, or even build their own yoga retreat.

Family game nights!

For many, that dream home would really become a reality with a games room, offering an area to either unwind after a hard day’s work or a space for homebuyers to spend quality time with their children.

The top floor could be filled with traditional arcade games, a dartboard, a pool table or even a video game setup, in order to make sure people have an area to relax and enjoy their favourite activities.

Popcorn at the ready…

One luxury every homeowner dreams of having is a home cinema system, with a large screen, blackout curtains and a family-sized sofa.

Creating a home cinema would be perfect for all homebuyers and a great way to make the best use of a spare room. People only have a couple of months with a particular film to get the best cinematic experience, but with a home cinema, all homeowners would need is a DVD and some snacks to make that experience last a lifetime.
