How do you use your attic? Is it finished or unfinished? If you are dreaming of a more grown-up attic space and expanding your home's usable square footage, check out our ideas below!
Although attics often have funny nooks & crannies and oddly angled walls, these unique features can be embraced!
1. Quiet work space
Even if you have lower ceilings in your attic, you can still build a desk into the wall or a padded seating area for reading.
2. Craft Oasis
Attics are the perfect place for a crafting/sewing room. Craft supplies can be hard to organize to begin with, but the unique nooks in an attic can be utilized for craft storage. Try using Ikea organizing cube units and customize them to your space!
3. Master Suite
An attic can be a wonderfully private place for a dreamy master suite. This can be a bright, airy retreat with a couple of added skylights!
You can let your kids imaginations run wild in decorating and designing the attic playroom. Don't be afraid to use a fun mix of colors and patterns! Create built-ins, secret spaces and hidden doors for endless hours of imagination.
5. Extra Living Room
If you are tight on space in your main living area, try expanding up! An upper-level attic can be a retreat for older kids or teens to hang out friends. You can mount a tv on a flat or even an angled wall! The possibilities are endless.
