What To Do With a Small Attic Space


We all want to make the most of our homes, and this includes any attic space, no matter how small it may be. There are a number of great ways of using small spaces, and of creating lightness and airiness in what appears to be a tight space.

Attic is too small for a Bedroom

Often you would like to add an additional bedroom to my home, but the attic is just too small.  There are a number of regulations about how big a room must be, and no one likes to be sleeping in a cramped small space.  This does not mean that you cannot find a good use for your small attic, especially if it has a high ceiling and a window.

Home Office

If your attic has a high ceiling, and a window, then you may be able to make the space into a home office.  It might be a great place for a getaway for mom, or dad, or a student to work.  Although it may not be the place to spend days on end, a quiet upper story space with plenty of light can be perfect for studying for exams, or getting a report finished for the office.

As long as you are not claustrophobic, these can be splendid get away places.  A desk or table, a comfortable work chair, with plenty of light and the ability to see out the window like in the picture, and you can have a comfortable place to work.

Storage

Of course, many people use their attics for storage, but instead of just throwing everything in higgledy piggery, there are plenty of ways to create an organized storage experience.  Shelves can be added to walls, plastic containers can be used, and areas can be marketed off for the storage of different types of goods.  If you are like many people and you keep everything, it is vital that you keep those things in an organized way or the “things” will take over your world. Get your Attic organized and then you can keep whatever you want and even find it whenever you want it too.
