An attic is a lovely place to convert into a bedroom in a house. It is one of the favourite places for most people to use as a bedroom because it just feels super cosy and lofty while also giving you so much privacy and if you are lucky a great view that nobody else in the house can get. Therefore, attics are not meant to be just shut away and used for storage. They can actually be made into really great bedrooms that are especially great for youngsters and kids. Here are some fun and creative tips on how you can make this happen.
Have a Plan for the Project
Before you can start redecorating the attic and converting it into a bedroom you need to have a plan for the project. For example, you will need to first check to see if anything in the attic needs to be repaired such as the roller shutters, the roof, and the flooring. If anything has been damaged through neglect or other causes, you will first need to get the price estimates on carrying out the repairs for these. Therefore have a plan on what you need to get done step by step starting with the repairs and ending with the furnishing of the attic.
How Can You Utilize The Space?
The next question is how you can use the limited space in an attic and convert that into a comfortable bedroom. There are many different types of attics and some of these may be larger than the others. However big or small they are it is important to make sure that you try and utilize the space as best as possible. This could mean that you need to think out of the box when it comes to furniture and opt for compact models that can easily be fitted into little nooks and crannies and even under the bed and the likes instead of the standard furniture that takes up a whole lot of space.
What Are The Strong And Weak Points Of The Attic?
Now you need to look at the strengths and the weaknesses of the attic. If the attic opens up to some great views of the scenery around you might want to consider putting the bed near that area so that the person can wake up to the sunshine and stunning scenery. If there is not enough light coming in, you might want to think about creating ways for more light to come into the attic. The strengths and weaknesses of your attic will decide where and how you want to place the furniture once everything else has been completed.
Get the Right Furniture
Now last but not the least, get the correct furniture for your attic bedroom. The bed should not be too large unless of course you are one of those lucky ones with a massive attic space. You will also need at least one table and a chair, a couch if that can be accommodated comfortably, a closet, bookshelf, some storage area such as a cupboard or two and the likes.
