When it comes to living inside a house, there’s a lot of space that can go a-wasting. But it shouldn’t! We’ve looked at how easy it is to get the coziest bedroom ever, let’s apply the same principle to the rest of the house! Let’s stay on the top floor for the time being, and focus on the little thought of area known as the attic. Here’s some tips on how you can get some more use out of it!
Clear Out the Junk
Your attic is going to be the most likely place you store everything you don’t need, and where you keep all of your momentos from times gone by. However, not everything needs to be kept! If you don’t get any kind of use out of some of the objects up there anymore, it’s time to clear them out.
Either you can take them to be donated, sell them off if they’re in good enough condition, or simply throw them away. The latter option is always the easiest, and if you just can’t stand the condition your attic is in anymore, it’s the best one to sate your frustration. But if you’re too attached to what you have stored away, it’s time to make some compromises; or simply get someone else to do it for you!
Make it Livable
Now that you’ve cleaned out some space in your attic, it’s time to turn it into the nicest room in the house. The place you can retreat to when you need some time alone, to relax or to work, or to soak up the sun that comes in from the skylight you had installed years ago but never used.
You might need to undergo a attic conversion, but sometimes we don’t have the time or money for that. So instead, make do with some cheaper additions. There’s a good chance you’ve got exposed wires; you can install an easy access panel to make this a safer room for everyone, whilst still being able to access any building services stored up there when you need to. Thankfully, Access Panels Next Day Delivery exists out there, and you can soon have your lofty aspirations well underway!
Keeping it Tidy
Now that you’ve got your new room, and it’s just starting to look cozy, make sure it stays that way! You still need to use this extra space for the excess storage you can’t keep in your bedroom, and that means you’re going to need some shelves.
Buy some easy assemble ones and place them against the back wall. Line up all your possessions on those, to keep them organized and out of the way. It also means the storage doesn’t detract from the rest of the room.Sometimes it just takes a bit of elbow grease to find an easy solution for your home decor dreams. Hopefully you can implement some more space in your house with these tips, as well as holding onto the objects you love the most.
