Until recently, attics in Australia have usually been a forgotten space only used for storage, when instead they can be cleverly used as an additional room in your home. An attic is often a space that has many design challenges to overcome, but if you are determined, the project can be a lot of fun. These 10 beautiful attic conversions provide inspiration for designing your own attic and other small awkward spaces.
Lofty Living Room If the space is big enough, an attic can be turned into an inviting casual living room. Traditionally attics are dark, yet they need not be; by installing some roof windows/skylights you will enable the natural light from outside to come inside. By painting the walls white, or a very light colour, you will make the space appear airier and bigger than it actually is.
Attic Office If your attic is very small, it is an apt space for a private and quiet study, perfectly tucked away from it all.
