Attic Interior Design Ideas – playing with light and volumes

An attic can save precious square feet, create an additional bedroom, bathroom or even a suite, and enlarge the house. If the room is vast, you can play on volumes, keeping it open and airy, or choose to partition, creating more privacy. Finally, the opening of roof windows, skylights or windows can modulate the input light.

There are two solutions for bright and airy loft: installation of roof windows or skylights. The first option is less expensive and more contemporary, bringing more light.
By partitioning, you create a mezzanine, by installing cabinets in the loft, you shape new pieces, larger and often more practical with many additional storage.

Highlighting volumes
