Attics are often used for storage or remain empty but, the more you think about it the more you realize it’s a huge waste of space to do that. If you clean it up a little you can turn it into an extra room, perhaps a bedroom for the kids or for guests. There may not be as much natural light in there because of the small windows and the walls may be difficult to work with because of the angle but these are not necessarily inconveniences. They can very well be the details that make the room feel cozy.
Attics can be very cozy and even though they are sometimes perceived as creepy and cold, they would make a great bedroom. Here are some ideas of how you can transform an attic into a cozy and inviting extra bedroom. Take a look at the pictures and maybe they will inspire you to start your own project.
There’s really no reason why the attic should stay empty. If there’s not any special reason why you need that space for storage then there should be no reason why you couldn’t turn it into a lovely bedroom. There are some basic steps to follow in order to complete such a project. First you would have to remove anything you might have stored there. Then, when the space is empty, apply a new coat of paint on the walls. You should try to brighten up the place. Use colors such as yellow or green for a fresh look.
Next furnish the place. It might be difficult to get the furniture in there so make a plan first and make sure you know where each piece should stay because it’s going to be hard to change anything after that. You don’t need much, just a cozy bed and a nightstand, maybe a closet and a table as well.
Finally, add some decorations and you’re done. Since there are exposed beams on the ceiling you can use them to create a romantic project that you would be able to see every night before you go to bed. You can use these pictures as inspiration or come up with your own project.
