Each square meter of the home, in fact, must be fully mastered. This principle allows you to get the maximum comfort, convenience and functionality from the existing living space. It is this principle that was laid down in the arrangement of the attic area of residential buildings, when the issue of creating an attic - an additional room that is really suitable for housing, is being decided. The degree of suitability largely depends on how well the construction is completed and, of course, how attractive the design of the attic is.
Informative photos with the attic design for the layman
After performing professional work aimed at giving a “divine” appearance to the attic, there are usually no complaints about the interior. Only not all owners of spacious attics have professional skills, and therefore a conversation about the intricacies of design will clearly not be superfluous.
Firstly, it is worth noting - this type of additional area is usually used for specific needs. The traditional purpose of the attic :
Based on these destinations, the designer’s picture of the room located at the highest point of the home is usually built. However, people's fantasies are endless and no one can guarantee that a bedroom, office or even a full bathroom will not be created under the roof.
The main touches of the attic design
If you carefully consider the photo of the attic design , the first thing that catches your eye is the small height of the rooms . In addition, due to the pyramidal shape of the attic, the impression of some constraint and limited space. However, such sensations can be reduced to zero if we correctly construct the picture of the interior.
What needs to be done for this :
- use light colors of paints intended for surface treatment;
- try to divide the area into functional zones and rationally fill with interior details;
- organize effective lighting of the room - both with artificial light sources and with a natural stream;
Meanwhile, there are such housing projects where attic areas are significant. It is likely that such options may require, on the contrary, not a visual increase in space, but its reduction. Well, large decor drawings, bright colors and dimensional furniture easily help to cope with the problem of volumetric space.
Design option for a bedroom under the roof
Of the mass of options, photo attracts attention, where the attic design complements the light golden color of the ceiling part in combination with the color of light wood on the floor. The golden-bright space, of course, is filled with furniture of small dimensions, matching the color (however, contrasting furniture is also not excluded), made in the "retro" style . There is no need to place many items of a sleeping set. A bed, a pair of ottomans and a small low bedside table for bedding - this is quite enough. Cramped space is a malicious enemy of any design.
A slightly different design of a bedroom can also become interesting and attractive for attic options. In the photo of such design developments, for example, finishing with a rough lining board, filling with furniture in the same style, the presence of floor carpets from animal skins stands out. A real hunting lodge - no less. Such projects do not provide for the concealment of floor beams and other attic building elements. On the contrary, these elements are accented, for example, by coloring in the color of bog oak.
Often, the space under the roof of the house is allocated for children's rooms , and a thoughtful and competent design in this case is also a relevant issue. An attractive cozy room can be created using common decoration materials - wallpapers, paints, coatings. In this case, the color scheme must meet some requirements. As a rule, the interior of children's rooms is built taking into account the use of soft, light shades, but a lot depends on children's preferences and the psychological component of the design.
From bedrooms and nurseries to the dining room
A very real option is to create a kitchen in the attic, and if it has already been created, the issue of its design also becomes relevant. Due to the non-standard geometric shapes of the attic, there may be differences from the traditional design of the kitchen, which is, in fact, the main problem. Therefore, it is recommended to adhere to the following rules :
- if possible, furniture should be placed against walls perpendicular to the sides of the roof slopes;
- it is advisable to install items of a kitchen set in bright colors, provided that the walls and ceiling have a light background;
- it is necessary to focus on the windows, which in the kitchen version should be large and provide good light;
- the dining table is best placed next to the windows or directly under the windows (if the windows are on the roof slopes).
So, rationally using the area of the attic, creating a design that perfectly emphasizes the purpose of the premises, citizens master every square meter of residential real estate and subsequently successfully use the results of their own ideas.
