Make use of your roof space

Do you have an attic or really high ceilings with a pitched roof?  Then why not make use of your roof space with these great ideas?!  We show you how you can easily turn this unused space into a usable area such as an extra bedroom, office space or even a kid's play area.... the options are endless.


If you have the space, then creating an extra bedroom or guest room is a very practical solution in maximising the use out of your roof space.  And why not add an ensuite with these space saver ideas?

Tip: To maximise the space, think of less bulkier pieces of furniture, such an ensemble mattress and dress the wall up behind it with either a feature paint colour or wallpaper.  This way you're still creating interest with the feeling of more space.


Smaller Areas

If your roof space is more on the small side, never fear as you can still make use of it by creating an office space or kid's play area.

Tip: If you have exposed structural rafters and using your roof space for a kid's play area, add a swing!  This will make your roof space a place the kid's will never want to leave, giving you that much needed time to relax or catch up on those tasks you've been wanting to do for some time.
