8 Creative Ways To Remodel The Attic

There are many creative ways of how to remodel the attic. You can maximize the potential of your attic by using clever and unique ideas. You can turn your attic into a home office, a bedroom, or even a play area for your children. There are many possibilities, so be creative and use your imagination! The sky’s the limit when it comes to remodeling your attic. But here are a few ideas to help you get started!

Home Office

You can turn your attic into a perfect home office space. You need to consider how much natural light you will be able to get in order for this idea to work. Try installing skylights, but if that’s not an option, then try painting the ceiling white or adding lamps and other sources of light.

Another great feature would be built-in bookshelves and cabinets for storage, as well as a desk and comfortable chair. As long as the attic is away from all noise and distractions and it has ample window lighting (or lamps), your first choice should be ideal!

Extra Bedroom

If you have guests who visit often or young children who require their own bedrooms, then you can easily transform your attic into a bedroom.  You can paint the walls a fun pastel or vibrant color, add a carpet for a cozy feel, and add built-in desks, cabinets, and wardrobes. 

This will give your guests privacy from you and other family members while also giving them plenty of space to store their belongings.

Storage Room

If your house doesn’t have an extra storage space then it’s the perfect time to add one! To create a closet space,  install shelves on the wall and paint them to match the walls. If you want more storage space, consider adding an extra wardrobe or even a small desk if space allows. Just remember to measure the room properly before purchasing any furniture! That way everything will fit perfectly.

Hobby Room

Do you like sewing? Collect model cars? Or do other crafts as a hobby? Transform your attic into a special room that can be used specifically for these hobbies! You should definitely install lighting (preferably bright lights) because it may get dark upstairs depending on whether your house has skylights or not. 

Also, install huge windows so there’s plenty of natural light coming in each day! For those who enjoy sewing, try installing your sewing machine in a desk  corner, and add a storage shelf full of fabrics. Hobby rooms can vary from person to person, so you should definitely get creative with this one!


If you love reading books but don’t have a quiet corner  of your house to sit in, then you should definitely turn your attic into a library. You can install wall-to-wall bookshelves or just simply add one big shelf along the wall of an attic bedroom. 

This is guaranteed to increase the value of your home, because everyone likes to have a secret getaway where they can escape from reality. Also, it’s very cozy up there!

Craft Room

Do you have an abundance of craft supplies? Then why not turn your attic into a craft room! You can buy whiteboards to create a workspace, or install wall-to-wall cabinets to store all your materials.

Not only will this brighten up the space, it’ll also give you more organizational clarity. Go ahead and bust out those paints and let loose your imagination!

Exercise Room

Who doesn’t want to work out at home? And by renovating the attic into a gym/exercise room, you are giving yourself plenty of workout space without sacrificing any square footage in your house! What’s great about transforming the attic is that it has high ceilings so there will be enough headroom for you to stretch.

Playroom For Kids

For parents who are looking forward to hosting playdates or sleepovers with their kids (or any young children) during the holidays, consider turning your attic space into a playroom! Install bright and colorful floor mats and furniture like tables and chairs so that the kids will be happy playing up there for hours on end.

So there you have it, eight creative ways to remodel your attic. Whether you are looking for more storage space, a new play area for the kids or just want to update your home’s look, these ideas will get you started. Remember to think outside the box and be creative with your design.
