Adding more living space is a sure-fire way increase a home's value. These homeowners know that, so they decided to let us completely renovate their unfinished attic -- but we let you decide how we did it. You voted on new walls, flooring, furniture and more. Browse through the slides to see what you picked.

Romantic Hide-Away

This was a top-to-bottom renovation. For the ceiling, you chose bead-board paneling, in the middle of the room, you selected a vintage-style iron bed. And for the floor, a shag-like frieze carpet won the vote.

Safety and Style

We had to build a wall around the staircase and add a new banister. You picked a colonial-style railing to stretch from the new closet wall to the top of the stairs. The beautiful chandelier was another one of your fine choices.

Sage and Gothic

We opened up the space as much as possible. Building a cathedral top to the dormers adds height and architectural interest and it works perfectly with earthy sage color you picked for the walls.
