Attic rooms are usually the most appealing interiors in the whole house, even though we can not tell for sure what draws us to them so much. Some people unconsciously correlate them with secret rooms, or even with large playgrounds. Either way, they have a special charm, and a warm feel that seems to follow you around, even after you leave them. Designing such a space comes with its many challenges. That is why today we decided to try and make things easier for you. By putting together a list with the most beautiful attic rooms out there, we figured we would at least give you a starting point in decorating.

There’s really no reason why the attic should stay empty. If there’s not any special reason why you need that space for storage then there should be no reason why you couldn’t turn it into a lovely bedroom. There are some basic steps to follow in order to complete such a project. First you would have to remove anything you might have stored there. Then, when the space is empty, apply a new coat of paint on the walls. You should try to brighten up the place. Use colors such as yellow or green for a fresh look.

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.

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.

Many attics don’t get much sunlight. Dark paint colors like burgundy, navy blue or chocolate brown make a dimly-lit attic feel as depressing as Sara Crewe’s garret. On the other hand, light colors like off-white or cream will simply look dirty in low lighting. Instead, choose a mid-tone somewhere in the middle of the color strip.

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.

Up in the attic, one of the children’s bedrooms has been fitted with a mezzanine, perfect for sleepovers. ‘It would have been easy to put a flat ceiling across here, but we would have missed a terrific opportunity,’ explains John. ‘As well as being a useful little space, it’s also much more interesting from an architectural point of view and it meant we were able to introduce a roof light to make the most of what could have been a dark space.’.

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.

You could also begin by acknowledging the fact that the space just beneath the ceiling is extremely versatile.

Attics are often used for storage or remain empty but, the more you think about it the more you realize it’s a huge waste of space to do that. If you clean it up a little you can turn it into an extra room, perhaps a bedroom for the kids or for guests. There may not be as much natural light in there because of the small windows and the walls may be difficult to work with because of the angle but these are not necessarily inconveniences. They can very well be the details that make the room feel cozy.

Many attics run the length of the house, making the dimensions long and skinny like a bowling alley. Painting the shorter walls a darker or brighter color than the long walls visually evens out the dimensions. Placing a bed with a substantial headboard against that wall has the same effect. If the room is large enough, some designers place the bed at an angle to visually break up the long rectangle. Another option with a large room is to divide the room into a bedroom and sitting area, perhaps with a screen partition.

Most attics have short knee walls and a slanted ceiling, perhaps with inset dormers. You can deal with the odd ceiling in one of two ways, but don’t ignore it. One way is to camouflage the ceiling lines by painting the walls and ceiling the same color. For a cozy Victorian or English cottage look, envelop the room in a pretty floral pattern. The other way is to make the ceiling a design element with some rustic beams or by paneling the sloped portion.
