Five Room Ideas for Your Unused Attic Space
The attic is the special room of the house which can be transformed into pretty much anything that your heart desires. They can become guest rooms, smaller living rooms, offices or bedrooms, but no matter what purpose you wish to give to it, you should make sure that you make the best of it. Instead of losing attic space by transforming it into a large storage unit, here are a few ideas you could consider. If you add a few windows you can control the light and mood of the room.
But before you begin, make sure that you insulate it properly, take care of pests and maybe even consider adding solar powered fans that will reduce the power costs. Most attics are built with a wooden structure and this means that they are sensitive to termites. I recommend that you consider the termite inspection cost before applying any remodels. Without further ado, here are five awesome ideas for your attic space.
1. Small Office
Nothing can beat a small, cozy office placed in an attic. There are many great advantages to consider. First of all, you will receive great sunlight during the afternoons, when you are most likely home and productive. Secondly, you will get a little piece and quiet, and time away from your kids. You don’t have to invest a lot of money into it. Repaint the walls, refurbish the floors, and add antique furniture which can be found in a flea market in order to complete the look. Other changes can be applied over time.
2. Guest Room
Attics are usually more intimate, and somehow secluded from the rest of the house. Taking these things into consideration, one might be tempted to create a guestroom there, and it wouldn’t be a bad idea. You can also add a small bathroom to spruce things up. Beautiful lighting and the feeling of privacy are things that most guests enjoy.
3. Cozy Retreat
Sometimes we just want to get away from it all, and the best way to do this is by creating a comfortable room in which to relax. Mothers will be able to enjoy some time alone, children might be inspired to read, and grandparents will also have a chance to unwind. This is one of the most affordable changes, because it doesn’t require a large investment. A small coffee table, some armchairs, pillows, a bookshelf and some accessories that you can find for great prices are more than enough to make you feel at ease.
4. A Royal Bathroom
If you are feeling like treating yourself to something special, why not decorate an enormous bathroom in which to lounge? I have actually seen many people applying this home improvement to their house, right above their master bedroom.
5. Playroom for Children
You might think that an indoor playground for your children might not be such a good idea, because of the noise they might make, but it is actually simple to isolate the room. Insulating material is actually very cheap. Not to mention the joy your children will have that you created a special room for them. A playroom for the little ones can easily be transformed into a children’s place in which to grow uphappily. In addition, they will not have to worry about the reduced height of the room.
These are only a few ideas which may be applied to your attic. The sky is the limit when it comes to repurposing your attic. All you have to do is to take all of your needs and desires into consideration.
