Renovation Ideas for An Attic Bedroom
Your home has potential and you may not even know it. If you have an attic – we have the perfect solution for your unused space. Attics are generally used for storage, they sit peacefully under a pitched roof waiting for someone to put a box or an old piece of furniture in. At least, this is what they used to be for. What if we told you an attic bedroom could be in your near future?
Creating an attic bedroom doesn’t have to be complicated. Accommodating your belongings, clothes, and bed placement may seem like large hurdles, but we’ve curated some great tips on how you can make the most out of your attic space. With a little TLC your attic will not only be a livable space, but an enjoyable one as well.
These are the angled portions of the roof that come together to create the pitched ceiling. It may seem awkward to navigate around the room as the ceiling slopes. The best way to utilize these slopes is by creating open shelving at the base of the ceiling. Your storage problem is solved, and the shelving prevents you from approaching the slope and banging your head.
If possible, replacing the existing window with a larger one could make all the difference in the world. A floor-to-ceiling window could give you an ample amount of natural light to make the space look larger and feel more open.
With lower ceilings, it’s probably best not to have a dramatic light fixture hanging down. Mounting a light flush to the ceiling makes the most sense. This way, it won’t take up any additional space.
Move it away from the walls. We’re trying to avoid any situation where you arise suddenly in the middle of the night and smash your head. By placing your bed away from the walls, you can still access the shelving under the eaves, make your bed, and move around the space with ease.
