If you have an attic, chances are it’s a dark, dusty space full of old boxes of junk and spider webs. For many people, it is such a waste of great space and could add a much-needed room to your home.
Even if you have a small attic that isn’t high enough to be converted to a usable room. You can still get it fitted out with lighting, flooring, and clever storage. If your roof needs a bit of work first, look for a company like IKO Roofing to repair it before you embark on the renovation. That way you’ll be able to free up so much space in your home for other things. Plus, who doesn’t love a tidy home? At least, that’s the dream.
If your attic is large enough to provide a usable space, here are 5 great ideas to it into a fantastic room.
Attics are usually an uninterrupted space that spans the width of the house. This provides the opportunity to create a huge master bedroom suite, with space for an en suite and a lot of closet space. It can also free up a bedroom in your home for a guest room or kid’s bedroom.
If you never have guests over because you don’t have room, or they end up sleeping on a blow-up mattress in the dining room, then create a guest room. Not only will you be able to invite people to stay more, but they’ll have their own space away from the rest of the family, which is especially good if they are staying for a while over the holidays.
Once the room is complete, it’s always ready so there’s no running about looking for sheets or air beds when someone comes to stay at short notice.
Young kids mean a lot of toys. You probably can’t see your lovingly designed house for the sea of kid’s things. It happens to all families. By giving the kids their own space to play, you can finally start to take back the rest of your home.
As they start to get older you can adapt and change it to their interests. Then when they finally move out you can do whatever you like with it again!
