Welcome to our gallery featuring a collection of varied attic spaces transformed into lovely living rooms.
Similar to loft spaces, and sometimes used synonymously with them, attics are the often forgotten space between the top floor and the roof, with reputations for being too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter to make a decent living space out of them.
In most private homes, the attic is used as an unfinished storage space, with many not even having flooring installed. Some, however, choose to insulate and transform their attics to take full advantage of the square-footage of their home.
Many of these attics are converted into non-essential “bonus” rooms, like guest bedrooms or home offices.
Another option of course is creating a living room. Of course it won’t be your home’s formal living room; instead we mean a casual room with comfortable seating and perhaps entertainment options such as reading areas and/or TV view area.
The fantastic examples we’ve selected for this gallery tend to be multi-functional living rooms and family rooms in varied layouts and design styles. We hope you enjoy this collection!
