For homeowners that feel they need more space, but don’t want to go through the process of an addition, you may have space that you aren’t using right now and could make good use of it; the attic. The attic is often forgotten space that can be converted to expand the square footage of your home. Future Vision Remodeling is here to talk about some of the ways you can utilize your attic space and expand your square footage.
Turning Attic into Master Bedroom Suite
The most obvious answer to your extra attic space is an added bedroom. Many people choose to create a bedroom suite up there that may become that most coveted room in the house. You may find that you have to add some things like insulation, walls and floors, but adding another bedroom to your home can give you added value that is difficult to get any other way. If there isn’t currently a window, you will have to add one of those as well. The interesting angles an attic generally has to offer can create a unique, beautiful bedroom.
Add a Family or Bonus Room in Your Attic
Much of the time, the attic space is removed from the rest of the home. If this is the case, it may make the perfect family room or bonus room. Game tables and theater seating can help set the tone for whatever you are trying to convert the space into. This is a great place for kids to entertain their friends without disrupting everyone else in the house. It could also serve as the perfect craft or hobby room. That way, none of your supplies are taking over your house anymore.
Build Your Own Home Gym
What better way to get fit and live a healthy lifestyle than with your own personal gym. Your attic may be the perfect place for all the equipment needed to improve your fitness goals. The convenience of a gym in your home may be the motivation you need to get in shape. You won’t have to spend so much time in the car going to and from the gym; a true win, win.
Turning Attic into Storage Space
Maybe you live in a home that has very little, to no storage. In this case, you may find the best way to utilize the extra space in your attic is to create added storage. It may be tempting to throw any extra boxes full of belongings you may have sitting around, up in the attic. Avoid doing this and choose an advanced storage system to help you keep track of everything you have that is being stored there. That way, when you need it, you can actually find it.
