If you’ve been looking for ways to add to the usable space in your home, there’s a good chance you’ve thought about converting your basement or garage. But have you ever considered converting your attic into a useful living space?

With the help of a professional carpentry contractor, you might be surprised at some of the dramatic attic transformations that are possible. At The Construction Group in Woodbury, we offer a wide range of general contractor services including attic conversion, built-in storage, and bathroom addition. Check out these ideas for transforming your attic into a useful living space and then give us a call to discuss ideas for finishing your attic.

1.   Rethink Your Insulation

You’ll most likely need new insulation for your attic conversion. An insulation contractor can apply spray foam insulation, an efficient choice for keeping your attic bedroom dry and warm all year long.

2.   Let There Be Light

Even attics with windows tend to be short on appropriate lighting. While we’re working on your attic conversion, we can expand your attic window with a micro-addition or add a skylight. You’ll also need plenty of good artificial light like every other room in your home.

Decide if you need wiring for lamps, overhead lighting, or both. Chandeliers and hanging lamps look spectacular in the center of a sloped attic. Be sure to create a look that works well with the overall design of the room.

3.   Don’t Forget Closet Space

Every bedroom needs a closet. As you’re designing your attic conversion, this is a great time to think about adding extra space for the kind of closet you’ve always wanted to have. Depending on the configuration of your attic it may be possible to add additional hidden storage as well.

4.   Tune In to Great Media

Don’t make the mistake of designing a new bedroom and forgetting to create a space for your bedroom media center. A built-in cabinet or shelving unit is an ideal solution for a bedroom entertainment center.
