Game Day Getaway

A gridiron pattern was created on the lower walls with a combination of AstroTurf and molding. The angled walls are not ignored either — they are adorned with team logos and artwork.

Nautical TV Room

If you have enough headroom, include a ceiling fan to keep the place cool in warmer weather.

Roof Windows

Shaded skylights are a necessity for turning an attic into a bedroom. Retract the shade to keep the room sunny and warm, then pull it down for those sleep-late mornings.

Attic Nursery

Got a new family member on the way? Attics are great for kids of all ages. The smaller ones aren't hindered by the lower ceilings and older kids like having their own space away from the parental units.

Long on Style

The most is made of a narrow space by incorporating an extra-long sofa. The grooves on the corrugated-metal ceiling are run opposite the length of the room to make the space look wider. The shiny ceiling also brightens the room by reflecting the light from the window. See more of this room in the next slide.

Poker Night Hideaway

An eclectic mix of rustic brick, modern furnishings and an industrial ceiling provide personality and makes the space fun and relaxing.

Sophisticated Stripes

This attic was turned into a multipurpose office, library and workout room. The different angles and cubbies allow for delineation of each purpose.

Attic Symmetry

A once dark and dank attic was turned into a sunny Victorian-style his-and-her bathroom.

Cozy Retreat

Normally beadboard paneling goes on the bottom of a wall and painted drywall on top. Here it's switched with the beadboard on the ceiling. The lighter color on the ceiling gives the illusion of height and helps keep the space bright. Take a look at the other side of this room in the next photo.

Architectural Interest

The cathedral tops on the dormer windows add a touch of Gothic style to this cottage setting. For practicality purposes, the entire back half of the attic was walled off to create a walk-in closet.

Charming Master Suite

Cross ventilation from the windows and balcony door — plus the ceiling fan — should keep this elegant space nice and cool on a hot summer's day.

Mod White

An all-white color scheme makes the room look bigger than it is and helps the lower parts of the ceiling seem taller.

Upstairs Office

This combo attic/loft space was turned into an office with plenty of workspace and storage. The ceiling beams add architectural interest while the well-placed task lighting gives the room a warm feel.

Lounge, Guest Room and Office

A small ventless fireplace was placed on top of an oddly shaped built-in shelf to make the sitting area nice and cozy. A daybed tucked into the corner sits across from a writing desk.

Honey Mustard

An unfinished attic was turned into a vibrant reading room. Engineered-wood flooring in a whitewash finish adds character with its aged-patina look.

Incline Storage

Angled walls are a great opportunity for built-in storage. In this small attic bathroom, the shelving unit is built right into the slant of the roofline.

Girl's Attic Bedroom

Horizontal stripes with matching shelves are cleverly used to make the vertical space seem wider.

Guest Room Getaway

This quaint guest room with its pine furnishing and crisp white linens is reminiscent of a European bed and breakfast.
