The Attic Remodel We’re Obsessed With Attics present unique design challenges (i.e. notably slanted ceilings, ventilation obstructions, and awkward layouts), but with careful planning and thoughtful design choices, they offer living space you can claim without adding on. This attic remodel turns unused space into a hardworking retreat packed with storage.

Attic Master Bedroom

In the attic. Make like Jo in Little Women and sneak off to the attic to eat apples and read in peace. If you have the space, a daybed will allow you to read and then (yawn) slump down and have a little nap. If not, a thick cushion or mattress on the floor, supplemented with plenty of cushions, will do the job.

This attic was divided into three zones: a bedroom, dressing area and master bathroom. To give the bathroom a spa-like feel, luxe features were added like a soaker tub, a frameless shower enclosure, a new toilet (complete with heated seat and LED lights), marble and glass mosaic tiles and a crystal chandelier. A new skylight helps illuminate the many amenities in this divine bathroom.

Since the whole space is intended primarily as a master suite, the bed is simply tucked into the space created by a dormer. This makes it feel cozy and private, but connected to the rest of the attic.

The small 1950s ranch suited its new owners, except for one thing. They wanted a master suite. But how to get it when the first floor was jammed with the kitchen, living and dining rooms, the home’s sole bathroom, and two tiny bedrooms, one soon to be a nursery? Adding on wasn’t an option. So Claudia and Felipe Menanteau looked up—to the attic.

Although home owners often consider building codes to be obstacles, safety and durability are the real missions of codes. Because local codes vary, your building inspector can provide a list of applicable codes and required inspections for your new attic bedroom.

Trusses, W-shaped framing that supports the roof, make things harder. To achieve the attic bedroom you want, you might have to cut through, shore up, and otherwise alter the very structures that keep your roof above your head. It may not be practical. Consult a structural engineer and/or a licensed architect to determine if modifying trusses is a good idea.

To add both architectural interest and texture to this attic bedroom, interior designer Alexandra Hernandez created a custom headboard/wall made up of individual, burlap-upholstered plywood cubes. In a small space, an accent wall pulls the eye through the room and visually enlarges the proportions.

The sloped ceiling, textured wallcovering and platform beds of this attic bedroom evoke the feeling of sleeping in a tent, an especially luxurious one. Between the beds, open shelving stores books and displays colorful accessories.

In this attic bedroom, the pairing of textured green wallpaper with a beamed ceiling and wainscoting creates an airy, tropical feel. Graphic-patterned fabric on the pillows, chair and window shades bring a modern touch to the room.

If your attic is a playroom, pile on vibrant colors to make the space bright and happy. A modular sectional makes a great place to snuggle and lounge. Carpet tiles are also a brilliant choice for playrooms; if one gets stained, swap it with one in a less conspicuous part of the room.

Before Adding more living space is a sure-fire way increase a home’s value. These homeowners know that, so they decided to let us completely renovate their unfinished attic — but we let you decide how we did it. You voted on new walls, flooring, furniture and more. Browse through the slides to see what you picked. Romantic Hide-Away This was a top-to-bottom renovation. For the ceiling, you chose bead-board paneling, in the middle of the room, you selected a vintage-style iron bed. And for the floor, a shag-like frieze carpet won the vote. Safety and Style We had to build a wall around the staircase and add a new banister. You picked a colonial-style railing to stretch from the new closet wall to the top of the stairs. The beautiful chandelier was another one of your fine choices. Sage and Gothic We opened up the space as much as possible. Building a cathedral top to the dormers adds height and architectural interest and it works perfectly with earthy sage color you picked for the walls.
