Attic space design ideas

One who is enough fortunate to have an attic in his home and yet top convert it to a room, he is missing the primary treasure of a real estate. An attic space room gives one the opportunity to have enough privacy and have a view of outside. Here some tips are given if one wants to turn the attic in the room.

Is attic living for you?

While one should think about living in attic he should also make his mind about shifting from the main floor. Though the serenity of master bedroom in top floor may be eye soothing but climbing up stairs is a laborious process and may one may not like it. If one has small children, he may not want to be far removed from the children on another floor. While having teenagers and large family attic may be interesting.

What will it take to convert?

The next step is to determine about the cost factor and how much work and renovation is required for this conversion. In old houses the ventilation and conditioning pipes are run through attic. One should take this step of converting this attic in to master bedroom only when the cost is minimal and beneficial in comparison with added space and usage. Before setting for the change one should contact the home contractor of any home improvement professional for getting the expected expenditure for this purpose. It should be remembered that return on investment (ROI) can bring more money than invested initially.

Bring in natural light:

Natural light should be given main priority as it is on the top of th roof and has better opportunity for exposure to the sun. If less opportunity for the sun exposure exists in the room then window in wall or any solar tubes may be installed for having light in the attic. Along with the light the outside view should also be given important, as the thirst for outside views always hunt human being. Take full advantage of the height and the views, you are at the top of the world, literally!

Attics can be a hidden treasure for any home, they can be a source of enjoyment and as attics are quite calm and it can be felt like being isolated and having a world of one’s own.
