Peaceful and fancy attic room decoration ideas.
Attics and basements are the two disregarded parts of our homes. We usually use them for storing old stuff or some other purposes like a workshop. But, the economy isn’t going well and we are looking for different alternatives to value our places. As the bad effects of the economy make itself felt, more and more people are living together, as families or sometimes tenants.
So, homes are getting more crowded, and people start to consider qualify the inactive parts of the houses. The attic rooms are one of these inert places and day by day more people start using the attics. Attics are more preferred because, instead of living in unaired, dark, and boring basements, people are choosing the attics. Both places are not very comfortable but people feel safer and less depressed in the attic. Also, attics are more lighted than basements. So, how to decorate an attic? Or, for what purposes we can use them. In this article, we will try to give you useful attic room decoration ideas. But first, we will talk about the advantages and disadvantages of the attics.
Advantages and Disadvantages of the Attics
Let’s face it, the attics are narrower and shorter places. Also, they are colder in winters and hotter in summer times than the rest of the houses. But, with the right design and wise ideas, we can turn them into a cute and nice living place. The lower ceiling can give you difficulties with designing. Furniture, lighting, or curtain selections are harder than normal home decoration. So here are the pros and cons of the attics.
- As the attics have lower ceilings, it is easier to heat the attic rooms with good insulation.
- The costs of repair and painting are lower.
- The cleaning of the attic rooms is easier and faster.
- They are brighter and airier.
- You have the chance to have a wonderful balcony or terrace. Because they are great places to spend time especially on summer nights.
- You can have a very beautiful and peaceful rainfall noise when it is raining.
- These places are getting warmer so fast in the summer times. Also, if you don’t have a second window on another side, the room will be unaired.
- Strong winds will disturb you more than other parts of the home.
- Darker colors will give the impression of depression because of the low ceiling. So, you should choose the right colors.
How to Make Attic Room Decoration
The first thing you should do is to decide about the purpose of the attic. Will it be a bedroom, living room, or a child room? You can even place a small sink and use it as a small living space with a small kitchen. After this, you can apply our creative remodeling services.
If you have a duplex, you can use your attic as a guest room. When you renovate the place as one room, you can have a fancy room with light color paintings. You can warm the place with light-colored wooden furniture and wicker decoration. An important detail for a guest room is the bed. You can prefer practical convertible furniture that you can use both for a couch and a bed. This way you will benefit from the limited space.
If your apartment is only one story (the penthouse), we also have great ideas about it. The penthouses are ideal for the Scandinavian style that evoke rustic and minimalist designing styles. The prominent feature of the Scandinavian style is the usage of light-colored raw wooden material. Especially the ceilings are subject to this. Also, you should choose white, beige, light, and neutral colors for the walls in order to achieve a bright view.
Trendy Attic Room Decoration Examples
The penthouses or the attics mostly have a modern look because of their nature. Plain classiness, geometric patterns, and stripes are the completing and characteristic elements for attic room decor ideas. Wooden floors are always trendy. As they are easy to clean and can keep warm, they are an ideal material for the attics. You can prefer gray and beige for the colors of the walls.
In order not to lose the natural view, you should use pot plants. As there is so much sunlight, it will be easy to grow plants. Don’t hesitate to use plants with big leaves. And also you can use dark colors with this design. Navy blue thin carpets, cushions, small home accessories will help you to have a modern view. You can also prefer black instead of blue. But you should be careful about black. With small black details, you can have a fancy looking decoration. For example, you can prefer trendy chrome and stainless steel small tables and shelves.
