Make the Most of Your Attic
Combine Sun and Storage
A Multipurpose Nook
Go Cubed and Colorful
Add a Private Bath
Instead of trying to convert existing living space into a spare bathroom, consider transforming your attic into an out-of-the-way bathroom space. This classic claw-foot tub, basin sink, and skylight create an updated look. Plus, built-in shelving makes towel storage a cinch.
Make an Antique Loft
Create a romantic attic guestroom by incorporating old furniture. Use furniture and accessories from around the house to make it more "homey" without having to spend anything extra.
Rev Up the Playroom
Build a Rustic Retreat
If your attic's focal point is a window, don't be afraid to show it off. Instead of covering it with window treatments (and losing some of the aesthetic appeal), consider installing tinted window covers that block UV rays.
Create an Elegant Addition
Combine simple white and sleek wood to create dramatically chic upstairs quarters. This room's vibrant flooring pattern takes center stage and balances out the bare walls. Instead of storing your hobby items, try displaying them as decor.
Incorporate Office Space
Bring your work upstairs by transforming your attic into a home office full of storage potential. Store papers out of the way in a closet or filing unit, and experiment with different computer desk options.
Design a Toy Story
Your attic is a large empty space ideal for a toy room. Create a playful atmosphere by painting the walls bright primary colors like the red and blue shown here. Games and toys fit into a built-in shelving unit, and a loft creates even more space for extra fun.
