We tend to think of attics as dark, suffocating spaces — not unlike something out of a horror film. However, many designers have taken the doldrums out of attic living and have transformed the lofty spaces into bright and beautiful hangouts you don’t have to feel ashamed of. We spotted several attic redesigns that are contemporary, playful, and absolutely dreamy. Banish those thoughts about creepy attic spaces, and delight in heading to the top floor with us past the break.
Attic balcony windows
Heat rises, and there’s nothing worse than a sweltering room to make you miserable. This often renders attics useless in many houses, but as we recently saw on Dornob, company Fakro has found a way to solve that problem. They’ve created balcony windows for attic spaces that allow residents to open up the top floors of their homes and make them totally livable. The windows turn your pitched roof into a miniature balcony space with big rewards: all the light and air you can stand.
