Why not convert your attic into a modern part of the home? Just think about all the space the kids will have in their new rumpus room, or that extra bedroom for guests – better yet, a wardrobe for all of your clothes (here’s hoping).

Here, we show you some of the ways to convert your tired old attic into a busy and useful part of the home.

Bookshelves

Bookshelves are an essential part of the home since they can hold almost anything – books, toys, DVDs, games – you name it! Depending on how deep your shelves are, you could also use some baskets for more discrete storage solutions.

Drawers

A chest of drawers is another essential part of any room – just think of how much clutter it can neatly store away. Drawer dividers are also a great way to store all of your belongings, so you know exactly where they are at all times.

Couch

A cute and comfy couch, beanbags and stools are great for any room, especially if your attic is quite small (everyone will be sitting down!). Throw a beautiful faux fur shrug or blanket over the top to make it look more rustic and lived-in.

Rugs

Depending on your style, you could invest in a stunning rug for the entire attic (trust us, it’ll keep everyone cosy in the winter months). A shaggy rug is ideal for the colder weather, but a Persian rug is better since it doesn’t shed.

Desk

If you’re turning the old attic into a study, then a desk should be at the very top of your list. Choose one with lots of storage for books, stationery and computer products, which also looks good!
