In many Port Charlotte homes, the attic is a forgotten space used exclusively for holiday decorations and dusty storage boxes. However, with a little TLC and some help from the experts at More Space Place, you can transform your attic space from a chilly storeroom to a cozy getaway. Read on to learn how.
Whether you want to turn your attic into a library, a home office, or a multi-purpose media and hangout room, defining the purpose of the space will help guide you through the transformation process. At More Space Place, we specialize in creating custom storage solutions to fit any space or lifestyle. Depending on the room’s purpose, a custom office desk, built-in shelving to hold your books, or a custom-designed media center can help you accomplish your goals.
If the attic in your home is like many others, it probably is made of old wood floors. If you’re lucky and the wood is in good shape, these floors can lend a classic appeal. However, you can add an area rug on top of the flooring to cozy up the space. If you really want to go for it, consider redoing the floors altogether. Carpet is a good choice, as it not only warms the space but can also help insulate the sound to and from the rest of the house.
Another way to create a cozy atmosphere in the attic space of your Port Charlotte home is to install a wall bed. At More Space Place, we work with you to create custom solutions to perfectly fit your space. If you have the low, slanted ceilings common to many attics, a horizontal wall bed may be a perfect solution. These comfortable beds fold out horizontally rather than vertically, which means they don’t need as much space for height. Adding a wall bed in your attic can turn the space into a multipurpose room. The bed can allow the room to be used as a guest room or a cozy escape for reading and relaxing.
The final step in creating the perfect cozy attic is to add your own personal touches. Blankets, pillows, and wall hangings will take the space from functional to welcoming. Use mood lighting and interesting lamps or fixtures to add character and warmth. Beanbag chairs can be a fun seating solution if you’ll have kids using the space.
