Attic Bedrooms Shine and Rise

It often has a low, strangely shaped ceiling and all sorts of weird angles, however if you are lucky enough to have a loft, you could be taking a look at the very best spot to add a bedroom.

Attics are comfy and airy all at once. Warm (with all that heat climbing) and private (you receive the entire floor). Plus, there is something interesting about escaping the monotony of this perfectly square area. Nooks and crannies can inspire a few of the most creative design ideas.

Skylights often get involved, as do white walls and flooring. Built-ins assist with space constraints, as do funny little closets and bathrooms that make use of seemingly impossible angles.

There is something undeniably romantic about a loft bedroom. Regardless of what the design, it’s an away-from-it-all feeling.

Even with a very low ceiling, a loft room can feel open and airy. White paint helps a good deal. So do built-in cabinets and drawers for hiding clutter.

This feminine beauty uses the odd angles to their very best advantage — that the headboard is hung to highlight the height of the ceiling, while the space is retained comfy with low furniture, floor cushions and wallpaper that extends to every wall.

White and bright. The skylight provides the sunlight, but the paint color provides the expansive feeling. A white floor is an easy way to lighten a room whilst taking advantage of the gorgeous texture of the first old wood.

White, white and more white and then one major splash of colour. So simple and so elegant. You might have a great deal of great dreams in this area.

1 accent wall of flat wood paneling accentuates the architecture inside this weirdly shaped space but also keeps things simple and spare. Hey, if you have it, flaunt it.

Take advantage of those odd pipes and chimneys that may want to pass through by integrating them in the design. Painting this sewer pipe lemon yellow makes it a fun part of the bright, playful kids’ room.

Emphasize the architecture with contrasting beams. This entire space has a somewhat tropical, eclectic vibe that’s working for me.

Utilize a strange small space for a cozy dining room.

Sometimes sloping walls conceal tiny spaces with low ceilings, perfect for a built-in kid’s bed.

This tiny WC beneath the staircase is a stroke of genius.

An integrated bench with double-duty drawers beneath feels comfy and increases usable space.


Skylights and built-ins — two of the greatest things you can place in your attic area.

In this loft, half of the roof turned into a skylight, which makes the space feel large and loftlike regardless of the low ceilings.
