What Houzz contributors are saying:
Older houses are generally more suited to attic conversions by virtue of their pitched roofs. Reclaiming your attic space can be costly, though if it’s in your budget, adding an extra level can vastly increase your floor space and enhance your views.Tip: Converting your attic can result in picturesque sloping ceilings like the ones seen in this Sydney home designed by Luigi Rosselli Architects and furnished by Decus Interiors.
3. Hire a professionalIf you desire a more substantial upgrade, it’s best to turn to a roof conversion company. They will sort out insulation, ventilation, flooring, electrical and even plumbing if you’re including an ensuite. A ladder or spiral staircase also needs to be integrated with the style of your downstairs interior. Making the most of an attic space
Here are some moves to start your ‘less is more’ workout…1. Cull furnitureIs every piece of furniture in your space useful, comfortable and lovely to look at? Remove a ‘white elephant’ object and see if you miss it. Often, so-called ‘occasional’ chairs, small tables and cabinets serve no purpose other than to clutter a space. Be ruthless.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
White plain walls, Engineered flooring, lots of electrical mains points, easy access to cabling under the floors. So some floor boards screwed as opposed to glued down. Hanging lights from ceiling. Good ventilation as usually cool in the attic, but also want to be less dusty
