This gallery features attic bedrooms, some of which are spacious, and others tucked into nooks. A few of the bedrooms featured in this collection are part of apartments set apart from the main home.
Many of these rooms have one or more skylights that pour in light to make these spaces bright, airy, and cheerful.
Vaulted ceilings are commonly found in attics, which can have dramatically varying ceiling heights as it is, due to the close proximity to the roof.
Something to notice as you peek through this selection of rooms, is the common practice of placing the bed facing away from the window. By angling the bed towards the center of the room, you reduce the chance of the occupant feeling claustrophobic.
A few of these attics were frugal with their space and created small apartments within the limited space. These were generally open concept areas, but did employ half-walls in their creative layouts.
As you scroll through these images, see the clever tactics used for each unique attic bedroom design.
