Converting the Attic into a Bedroom

As a homeowner, there are inevitably going to be points in your life where you wish you had more space. Perhaps you have welcomed a new baby to the family, perhaps you have picked up a new hobby with lots of equipment, or maybe your belongings just keep multiplying with no explanation. You could move or build an addition, but often homeowners prefer to find options within the home to make use of every last square foot.

Not every home has an attic, and not every home with an attic has that can be converted into usable space. If you are one of the lucky few, you can benefit from a renovation project to transform that dusty unused space into a gorgeous yet cost-effective bedroom.

If you are going to be converting your attic space into a bedroom and want to make sure that you’re able to do so quickly, effectively, and without having to have a gigantic budget, you want to pay attention to all of the inside information we have to offer you below.

Use the Space Intelligently

The biggest mistake that you could ever make when you are looking to convert your attic into a bedroom is to try and pigeonhole your ideal layout into a floorplan or a footprint that simply isn’t practical.

By really thinking about how you can use the space intelligently – working with any design limitations or interesting architectural details rather than trying to eliminate them altogether – you will be able to really streamline the project and create a truly unique space.

Consider Your Limitations and Transform Them into Strengths

It is always important to consider any and all limitations that you may be dealing with at any one particular point in time when you are dealing with a construction project, but it’s always important to consider your limitations – and overcome those limitations – when it is time to convert your attic into a bedroom.

You will inevitably have to deal with all kinds of interesting architectural features (low hanging ceilings are always going to be a problem in the attic), but with a little bit of creativity you shouldn’t have too terribly much trouble overcoming those issues and creating a bedroom space that is something even more special than what could have been created in a more traditional layout.

Find new ways to make storage work, utilize all available floor area, and consider taking advantage of “built-in” style furniture in storage pieces to create open and roomy spaces in attics that are anything but that!

With just a little bit of extra effort – and some creativity – you will be sure of creating your dream bedroom in your attic with no difficulty whatsoever. To help plan the perfect attic renovation project and make the most of the opportunity, RenosGroup.ca is here to help!
