If you like having company over but don’t have enough space for everyone to stay, you may want to consider remodeling your attic. Attics are often used for storing extra items. Depending on your needs, however, this may not be the best use of the space. Finishing your attic could increase your home’s square footage, which in turn could boost its resale value. Consider implementing some of the changes listed below to make the most of your attic space.
Try Soundproofing The Space
Attics make great game rooms, home theaters, or spare bedrooms. To reduce the amount of noise that makes it through to the lower levels of your home, consider soundproofing the space. Adding soundproofing materials to the floors and walls of the attic can make it feel like it belongs with the rest of your home.
Upgrade The Flooring
The floors in most attics are quite old, which means that they usually are showing a lot of signs of wear. To give the space a cleaner, fresher look, try replacing these old floors with new flooring. For additional soundproofing, going with carpeting is a great idea for an attic space.
Include Storage Space
If you are currently using your attic for storage, you should consider including extra storage in the remodeled space. Just because you are finishing your attic doesn’t automatically mean that you have to eliminate all of the storage. You should, however, find a way to make the storage space blend with the rest of the room. For instance, adding shelves or attractive boxes to the space can help keep it from getting too cluttered.
Install Lighting And Electrical Outlets
Your attic will feel more like a new part of your home if it has adequate lighting and plenty of outlets. Any electrical work including installing light fixtures should be handled by a professional.
