The attic is one of those spaces, like the basement, that can be described as an “aberration” in the world of home spaces. Often relegated to neglected storage space for items that do little more than collect dust, an unfortunately high percentage of owners fail to realize the awesome potential of the attic.
Also like the basement, the attic is a unique space that, with the help of the right Atlanta home renovation firm, can become one of the best rooms in just about any home. These are five unique ways to use your attic space.
When you first moved into your home, there is a pretty good chance that you figured that you were stuck with the number of baths already included. However, your attic can indeed make a novel space for an additional, spacious full or half bath. This will add to both the utility and the value of your home.
What better place for a master bedroom or suite than above everything else in your home? This will free up your existing master bedroom for another bedroom or office, and increase the number of bedrooms in your home.
Whether you use it to work from home full time, as a study, or as a workshop, a finished attic makes an ideal space for the addition of a home office, with the potential for isolation and fantastic natural light from dormer windows.
Spacious, boutique closets are all the rage in the world of Atlanta home improvement. If you are already using your attic for storage space, this is a way to give that storage space an upgrade to an area you will enjoy spending time.
Art Studio or Entertainment Space
An attic converted into an art studio is reminiscent of an industrial artist’s loft. Not an artist? You can still enjoy recreational time in your attic by turning it into an entertainment room, complete with a pool table or video gaming system.
These are just a few examples of how your attic can be transformed into more than just dusty storage. In addition to giving you a better space, attic remodels also rank highly among home improvements that recoup a majority of their costs in resale in Atlanta.
