How to turn an attic into a living room

The main problem that growing families face is the lack of space, including in the living room. And the point is not that there is simply nowhere to stand or sit, but that there is no opportunity for every family member to go about their business. Someone wants to watch TV, someone wants to look through magazines and newspapers, and someone needs to run and jump. In this case, you will have to think about a second living room, equipped in the attic..

Living rooms in small attics are much more comfortable than in large ones. There is very little vertical space in the attic, but a bookcase and a comfortable sofa are enough for a living room. Add a colorful carpet and get a wonderful living room.

It’s not about the size of the attic, but about the reasonable use of the available space. The large sofa can easily accommodate the whole family, while the wall-mounted TV saves floor space. If there is a constant struggle for the remote control in the house, then it is better to separate the opposing sides in different rooms.

Hidden opportunities
