For many people, renovating the attic is a great way to add additional sleeping or living space to a crowded home. If done right, your attic can be a warm and cozy place where it's a pleasure to hang out. Here are some tips for renovating your attic.

Check If It’s Feasible

Get a professional to take a look and see if renovating your attic is at all possible. There are many things to take into consideration. Your attic has to be able to comply with building codes, such as height. Other things to consider is how the attic was constructed, if its structure is sound, and how easy it will be to renovate it.

Install a Carpet

Once you do renovate your attic, consider installing a carpet for the floor. This will help drown out the noise that will be caused by walking on the attic floor or dragging chairs across the attic room. It will also help keep the attic warmer during the winter.

Install Separate HVAC Controls

It’s a good idea to keep the heating and cooling system in the attic separate from the rest of the house. Temperatures in the attic will differ greatly than the rest of the house, and being able to set its own temperatures will be a relief for whoever is staying there. In addition, you’ll be able to save energy when the attic is unoccupied.

Install Skylights

Skylights will give your attic some much-needed lighting. Letting in the sun’s rays will also help warm it up during the winter. You can also install a ceiling fan for the summer and use a portable heater in the winter for additional comfort.
