Using Attic Spaces

Attic spaces are often forgotten in homes. If you have head height in your attic, then you may can use that space for something other than mass storage. A smart builder will include walk up stairs to an attic instead of the pulldown ladders. This makes the attic a usable space. Our current house has walkup stairs and I love it! The only part that is head height is the center which limits our use for anything but storage. But, Stan has talked about it since we moved in. I always thought it would make a great library. I did a Google search and found others have great ideas for attics too so I'm doing a post on how to decorate your attic, how to use your attic, how to build your attic in. I tried to pick pictures that would incorporate all sizes, styles and usages. Look specifically for storage solutions in each of these photos and how they use the nooks and crannies for extra storage. Hope you enjoy, and thanks to all those who post their photos for the rest of us to enjoy!
