If you’re looking for a way to boost the resale value of your home, you should consider remodeling your attic. Remodeling your attic can also make it a lot more functional too. A four bedroom home can easily be turned into a five bedroom home. Hello added value! It’s also a less expensive solution when you want to add living space instead of adding an extra room onto the first floor. You won’t need to build walls, roofs or any floors from scratch.
Trends in Attic Transformations
Your attic can easily become an area to store boxes of old clothes and other random items, but if you decide to turn it into an area to live then you can unlock its potential value.
• Insulation and ventilation– These are important parts of finishing an attic. The attic needs to be insulated the right way when you install flooring to ensure you minimize the utility bills and ventilate the attic. You don’t want heat to damage your roof when the heat builds up. Plus an insulated attic improves overall living conditions in your home by sealing cracks to your attic.
• Easy access storage– Instead of piling boxes on top of each other, attics can act like a huge walk-in closet. Shelves can be installed with a system of drawers to make anything you need stored and/or organized easy to get to.
• Cedar closets– Instead of using smelly mothballs, many homeowners are opting to have cedar closets installed in their attics. These are great for storing winter clothes to keep them smelling fresh.
Attic Renovation Tips
Budget– A finished attic doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. If the plan is to use it for storage, then plywood or wood planks are good enough for flooring. The way it looks won’t be as important as making sure it’s structurally sound. Insulation is easy to install too.
Mid-range– Great value comes when you decide to turn your attic into a living and storage space. Factors like the size of the attic, the height of the ceiling and the roof slope will determine how you can make this happen. It’s best to consult a professional to get the most out of your attic space.
High-end– You have the option of going all out because luxury homes have large attics. This is when you can add an extra bedroom. You can also turn it into a playroom or a bonus room. Skylights can be added instead of full windows to bring in natural light and for ventilation. For high-end attic transformations you should definitely get help from professionals.
