Being Creative with Your Attic: Ideas to Consider



The attic is an interesting place. For some families, it is a sacred part of the house. However, for others, it is just storage space – nothing more, nothing less. The fact is, the attic should be treated with the same level of importance as all the other rooms in the house. It’s like a blank canvas waiting to be painted on – the creative choices are endless. You could turn the attic into a cozy rest room or even an extra bedroom for when a guest comes over to stay.

Here are some potential ideas you should consider for your attic.

Games Room

Having a games room is a dream for many kids and (unsurprisingly) adults, too. If you are a large family with kids, or just simply two people in a relationship, turning the attic into a games room is a perfect idea. You might even live in a house on your own, which is even better - you can customize the games room however you like. You’re the boss!

However, before you go ahead with your plan, you need to make sure that your attic is safe. Some attics can have pesky rodents in them, particularly if they haven’t been cleaned in a long time. Or, the stairs leading to your attic might be unsafe. Whatever the case is, you might need professional help. Visit to find out more.

Pool tables. Arcade machines. Classic board games. There are endless choices. Sit down and have a think about what features you want the most and can afford – you don’t need to spend your entire savings on a game room! Once you have created a plan, you can slowly start putting it all together. 

Home theater

The COVID-19 pandemic has, sadly, prevented people from going to the movies with their friends and family. On the positive side, the pandemic hasn’t stopped them from binge-watching their favorite movies and TV shows from the comfort of their homes, be it in their bedrooms or in the living room.

Do you know what would make the movie experience at home a lot better? A home theater – although perhaps not as large as some celebrity ones. It sounds ambitious, even more so than a games room, but it’s not that difficult to achieve. All you need to do is invest in a good quality TV, lighting, a small sofa (or large, depending on your comfortability preference), and some speakers – but that’s only if you really care about the sound.

Office Space

On a more serious note, you could turn your attic into an office space. After all, the pandemic has meant more people are working from home now than ever before. Doing work in your bedroom or at the kitchen table never quite feels right – it’s better and more productive to do it in an actual office. It makes everything more professional. If you already have a computer and laptop, that’s great – you don’t need to heavily invest in anything. All you’ll need to do is buy a nice table, decorate the walls and floor a little, and (perhaps most importantly) make sure you have a good Wi-Fi connection – as most attics are pretty high up in the house.
