If used to its fullest potential the attic can be the most astonishing room of your home, but all too often this precious space goes neglected; filled with the junk we can’t seem to part with.
It’s time to put an end to this atrocious use of attic space and transform our lofts into something special, and to get the ball rolling we’ve put together a list of nine fabulous ways to transform the space. Let’s take a look…
A secluded loft living room is never a waste of space! A place to relax and get away from the day to day stress of life by watching a film, reading a book, conversing with a friend or putting your feet up after a long day at work. Added benefits of using the attic include the ability to install skylights like in the lovely example above.
This spa-like bespoke bathroom is a brilliant use of attic space taking relaxation to the next level, and as with the living room example before, natural light beams into the bathroom thanks to the large skylight above the tub.
Sleep easy knowing your attic has become a beautiful bedroom space with added privacy thanks to the fact that it's on its own floor.
Here the high ceilings provide an incredible amount of space in this magnificent multipurpose room with a dining table and a lounge area.
Since the space is superfluous, why not turn it into something fun rather than functional? A game room could be the perfect use for the attic providing space for something such as a pool table that would take up too much room elsewhere.
This serene little space has an office area as well as some really comfortable seating creating the perfect secluded spot for work and quiet contemplation.
Why not go all out and build a large, lavish study like the ultra-modern office pictured above? Much like the idea behind a game room, the extra space available can be used for a large library you wouldn’t otherwise be able to incorporate into your home.
So far the options we’ve covered for our attics require little in terms of structural changes to the home. This idea may be a little far fetched – requiring the help of an architect—but fantastic nonetheless: build a balcony area around the attic and install floor-to-ceiling windows for a space that’s completely connected to the outdoors.
If the attic’s large enough why not create an entirely self-sufficient studio apartment within your home?
