Modern homeowners are keen on utilizing every bit of space available to them. They turn garages into hobby rooms, basements into entertainment areas, and spare guest rooms into home offices. You can also turn your attic into something useful and appealing. At Randolph Design + Build, we have worked on attic conversions through our luxury home remodeling services. We know just how much value such a change can add to the property.
Factors to Consider
There are two main factors to consider when you convert your attic into some kind of livable space. You need to make sure it qualifies and lives up to the local code requirements. Different regions have different building code requirements so check with the local department for more information. If your space doesn’t live up to the code requirements, we can modify it accordingly during the construction and remodeling process.
Another factor to consider is the budget. Some experts believe that you shouldn’t spend more than 10-15% of your home value on such a renovation project. We can help you through planning and the evaluation of cost.
Attic Conversion Ideas
You can get creative with the space and design something interesting based on its size or dimensions. Some of the most popular options for attic conversions during a luxury remodel in Oklahoma City include:
- A Child’s Bedroom – Attics have an unusual shape because they’re located directly under the roof. You can create a whimsical and unique kid’s bedroom in the space, taking advantage of the sloped ceilings and interesting layout. Teenagers will love attic rooms because they will have an entire floor to themselves, which offers ample privacy.
- Playroom – Attics can be converted into play or hobby spaces as well. If you want a dedicated area for your children’s toys and games, attics are a good choice. You can also set up an art studio, sewing room, craft space, etc, in an attic.
- Home Theatre or Game Room – It is possible to completely soundproof an attic and install a full home theatre or gaming system. You can watch loud movies or play games without disturbing the other residents. Adding a home theatre is one of the most popular custom home trends in OKC.
