If your attic has always been an “out of sight, out of mind” area of your home, then you are certainly missing out on a lot of storage and even extra living space opportunities. And if you are finally looking for ways on how to take advantage of your attic space, then you are certainly making a great move.
The attic is usually used as a storage space. Other homeowners find climbing up to the attic inconvenient, so they choose to clutter up the entire house instead and leave the attic as is.
Today, let’s find out how you can make most out of all the space you have in the attic. Check out the tips below.
Tips to Make Your Attic Space Useful
Declutter. If there’s plenty of clutter and junk in the attic, get rid of them if you can. Dispose of the things you no longer need, donate those that are still usable, or perhaps you can even sell some useful items you don’t like to keep anymore.
Insulate. The attic can get very hot and uncomfortable during the summer and extremely cold during the winter. Install proper insulation – and make sure you cover the insulation as needed!
Install Proper Ventilation. Especially when you apply new insulation in your attic, it could be extra humid up there. So you must also make sure you have proper ventilation in your attic area.
Repaint. A new layer of fresh paint can definitely make your attic a more attractive space – and you might even end up wanting to make it an extra living space. So after repainting, bring up some furniture and decorate the area as well.
Install Proper Lighting. If you plan on using the attic often, perhaps as a meditation area or home office, then you must have proper lighting there too.
