Attics are no longer just reserved for storage. Get ideas for turning yours into a lovely and lively living space.
An attic can be the perfect space for an extra bath. Multiple skylights and white walls brighten this elegant attic bath and make it feel bigger. Faux wood-panel wainscoting was used as an inexpensive alternative to tile. A partial wall built at one end of the tub provides privacy for the toilet area, and an antique dresser placed between two pedestal sinks provides storage and warmth to the room.
Give your attic space the same attention to detail as the main rooms of the house. This large attic was converted into a stylish home office with a cozy sitting area. Large columns and white trim work give the space a clean look and dark brown sisal flooring helps to muffle sound. The space is also fitted with a small bathroom and French doors that open onto a deck.
Increase sunlight and living space with the addition of attic dormers. Here, a trio of small gabled dormers across the front of the attic help to create a sunny and spacious living area. Old-fashion, door-style window shutters add charm to the bedroom suite. Honey-color stained, wide-plank pine floors give it a warm glow.
Adding square footage helped make this attic livable and lovable. The bedroom has an angled ceiling with varied heights -- 6 feet at the exterior walls to 11 feet at its peak -- making it still feel cozy. It also boasts elements of Craftsman style: fir plank flooring, solid Brazilian cherry doors, reproduction light fixtures, and built-in dressers, bench and cabinets. The bed nestles into a dormer making it feel like a hideaway.
Angled ceilings, deep window casings, black wainscoting and a vintage-look tub give this attic bathroom an old-fashioned appearance but don't let that fool you. It has much-appreciated modern amenities such as recessed light fixtures, air conditioning, separate shower with a glass enclosure and two showerheads, and two pedestal sinks.
Reconfiguring an attic dormer helped make room for this luxurious walk-in shower with built-in bench and small fan window. White subway tiles encase the walls and ceiling of the shower, reflecting light from the windows. A glass door allows sunlight to pass through to the rest of the bath.
Adding a dormer to this attic helped expand living space and channel light into a pleasant sitting area. The exposed chimney brick provides a focal point and gives the space a warm feel.
Here, an empty attic provided just the right space for a new master suite. The peaked ceiling matches the gabled dormer on the front of the house and also opens up the master bedroom for a soaring, window-filled wall with access to the balcony.
A beautiful bathroom was the best piece of work that came out of this former attic art studio. Varied ceiling heights and angles add architectural character and the tub tucks perfectly into a nook under the lowest part. High casement windows soak the room in natural light and beaded-board paneling provides a timeless touch that unites the space.
This attic turned guest bedroom gives visitors their own hideaway. The room boasts a sitting area, a pair of window seats, floor-to-ceiling built-in shelves, and an adjoining bath.
A need for more work space led to this studio in the sky. Pine planks cover the floor and ceiling of this attic art studio, making it seem larger and taller. Four skylights allow sunlight to pour inside. Energy-efficient windows cut chilly drafts in the winter and prevent harsh sunlight from heating the attic in the summer.
