If you are looking for more space and you have an attic space, you can turn your average attic into a master bedroom, or if you are into fitness you can build an in-house gym or yoga studio.

If you have a teenager, then the attic is the ideal place to create their own space. Why not turn it into a mini apartment for them.

The following five ideas are totally worthy of convincing you to renovate your attic and transform it into something useful:

  1. Creating a large master bedroom: If you feel claustrophobic in your current bedroom and need room to expand it, then an attic is the ideal place to get your dream bedroom. All that huge space which was being wasted in the past can now be used fully and converted into your bedroom where you will enjoy a cozy sleep.
  2. Expanding for more children: The larger the family, the more space they need especially if you have more than two kids. An attic turned playroom/children’s bedroom will make sure that your kids have their own place to play and enjoy.
  3. Building a home office: Some of us can afford to work from home especially if we are book publishers, therapists, lawyers, or running a small scale business. An attic when converted into a home office gives out the impression to outsiders and clients that although we are working from home we take our job seriously.
  4. Creating a library: For all you bookworms and bibliophiles out there who dream of having a home library where they can spend all day reading book after book, wouldn’t it be perfect if your attic was changed into a library filled with your favourite books? Not only you would have you own reading place, now you also get to have your own library and you no longer need to bother about library memberships and returning the books on time.
  5. Self contained apartment for teenagers: It is true that as kids grow up, they need their own space. An attic turned into their own living space will not only provide them a sense of independence but also it’s a pretty good excuse of not letting your kid go and look for their own apartment.

  • Wish my roof space was big enough to be able to make into a bedroom attic. Too small unfortunately.


  • I am one of those bookworms! Can only imagine an attic library – it would be like an entrance to an extraordinary world of personal adventure and growth. If you are deciding on book shelving, built-in and freestanding styles each have benefits and downsides. Freestanding can be moved more easily and will take less time. Floating free-standing shelves will give the most minimalistic look possible. Options built into the wall will have a more permanent look, and you won’t have to worry about any maintenance.

  • I love the lighting in the picture


  • Looking at these great ideas, I wish we had an attic space :( All we have is a roof cavity, not even enough room to stand in. I wouldn’t even use it for storage, too many creepy crawlies and yucky stuff


  • I like the idea of hidden storage. Just to be able to safely hide away the Xmas decorations and camping equipment – anything that doesn’t come out every other day, and free up our storage space in the rest of the house. It’ll give that decluttered look without missing out on anything.


  • It look’s gorgeous,so many ways to put a room to good use!


  • Love suggestions like these to make use of wasted space


  • Before you start getting too many ideas and get excited, get an expert to check your celing supports. You many find they aren’t strong enough to support the extra weight on top of them and may need more supports put in.


  • I would love to have an attic library/hideaway. Unfortunately we don’t have any roof space.


  • I wish we had an attic. I’ve always wanted a library in our home. Fitness studio/home gym sounds good too.


  • We don’t have an attic. But that looks beautiful


  • What awsome ideas. I feel inspired to to done renovating.


  • Darn wish we had an attick. These ideas are awesome.


  • I have always wanted an attic!


  • I love the ideas for the attic – now…..I just need the attic! ;)
