Turning an Attic Into A Bedroom: Ideas and Designs

Turning an Attic Into A Bedroom: Ideas and Designs

There aren’t that many differences when it comes to attic / loft bedroom ideas versus designing any other bedroom in the house. Have a look at my Bedrooms Mood Board Collection page for more specific design ideas and styles.

The Uniqueness of an Attic

You will likely have an oddly shaped room with angular walls and ceiling as seen in pictures (1) and (2). The heat or cold could be an issue depending on where you live – as the attic is less insulated than the rest of the house. On the plus side, being on the top floor means you can have some amazing skylight windows (3) (4) (5) (6) – and these windows can be large and don’t need to be curtained off as there is more privacy being higher up.

Rustic Vs. Modern

In the pictures above you can see examples of loft bedrooms that have left the beams exposed – creating a more rustic, charming and traditional design style (7). Then there are the attics that are more finished and look like any other bedroom in the house (8).

Built In Units

Because of the odd shape an attic can have, to make best use of the space it is ideal to have furniture custom built to fit into the crazy angles as seen in pictures (9) (10) and (11)1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11
