In some homes, an attic serves as an in-home storage unit, full of annual decorations, inherited spare furniture, and discarded Halloween costumes. But could your attic actually add to the appeal of your home? Check out these ideas to get more use and usefulness out of this forgotten space.
Need extra space so you can enjoy a full house for the holidays? Think about converting the attic into a spare bedroom. If you have a gable roof that slopes down at the sides, this bedroom is probably best-suited for children who are less likely to wake up whacking their heads.
Working and studying from home may be the new reality for us moving forward. Even as communities start to open up again, it is likely that lockdowns from COVID-19 have proven to many companies that employees can be productive working from home and therefore we’re likely to see this option remain for many roles. Convert your attic into a home office and enjoy the peace and quiet away from any distractions. This is also a great way to have a designated space for work so that work life doesn’t creep into the peace that should be home life.
If there is more than one person in your home, there is always a time when you can use more than one bathroom. Use the space upstairs to create a spa-like bathroom, more spread out than what you would probably create on a main floor. Add a skylight for natural light and fresh air too.
Walk-in Dream Closet
Always dreamed of having a walk-in closet fit for your favorite celebrity? Your attic could be just the place. Short walls are perfect for clothing and shoe racks and a small island in the middle can store jewelry and accessories or serve as a folding station.
Your attic doesn’t have to be a lost space in your home. Use your imagination and turn it into a space you really love or one that serves a very functional purpose.
