Which room do you think of first when you hear of home remodeling? For most homeowners, it’s the kitchen, living room, bathroom, and even basement; often, it’s never the attic.
Attic remodeling and finishing is often a whole lot of work, and transforming it into a more useful space may prove a challenge. So, before you take on the attic remodeling project, ask yourself these questions.
- How is the plumbing
- What about the lighting
- How old is your attic?
- What is the temperature up there?
- And how’s the general condition of the attic space?
Attic conversions usually begin with analyzing the whole space; what’s present, what needs to be repaired, and what needs to be added.
For one, you need an updated plumbing system if your home is old, and if the space is like a dungeon, you may need to add a skylight for more natural light.
You may also need to address issues, such as termites or other animal problems since the attic is a tucked-away space and is often a hideout for most animals.
In addition, if you want to make this space more livable, you may need to think about giving it the same heating and cooling system as the rest of the house and adding some insulation to help with energy efficiency.
That’s it! You can turn the finished attic into a playroom, an extra bedroom, a guest house, etc.; the ideas are endless.
