DMVF Architects 8. Look into customized storage. A full wall of customized closets and other storage is worth its weight in gold, as far as I am concerned. If you plan to use your attic as a master bedroom or as another frequently used space, consider saving up for custom closets or cabinetry — they’ll be worth the splurge.

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.

Mina Brinkey 6. Paint the floor. Whether you choose white or another light hue, painted floors can be a smart choice in the attic: They reflect more light than plain wood, and paint is a great finish for less-expensive wood flooring — a great help for staying on budget.

Be budget friendly. Aside from the fact that building a loft is typically cheaper than converting an attic, it’s also potentially an option in buildings that aren’t suitable for additions due to planning restrictions, since the structure is internal. There may be issues with adding some types of windows, though probably not simple skylights — check your zoning regulations.

Ceilings. Placing a bed in an attic space is not easy. The upholstered headboard here partially covers the window, yet the window acts as a centering element. The delicate nightstands are tucked under the descending roofline, and the circulation is comfortable around both sides of the bed. Keep in mind that once the slope of a ceiling goes below 60 inches, the area under the lower slope does not count as habitable square footage in some locales.

Go bespoke – Made to measure is often the way to go when it comes to attic wardrobes. With sloping ceilings, dormer windows and skylights limiting your options, it’s often the gable end that has to be used for hanging clothes. Many people discount the wall around their entrance door, but they could be missing a trick here, as it enables the bed to be placed on the opposite wall.

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.
