Abandon the plan for a new finish and have your attic remodel? Have you thought about what you are going to do with that room of your house? If you are like most people, you’ve probably given up hope. There are a number of things that can be done with that empty space at your house.
For starters, if you have a master bathroom, an extra bedroom could be added to that master bathroom and used for guest bathroom use only. It would be more difficult to do an attic remodel with this type of space because of the height and size required. The ceilings need to be extremely straight, as well as clean. You could add some tile to raise the level a bit. Most of the time, bathrooms are used by guests who don’t need to be exposed to the interior of the home. So, unless you are changing the style of the entire home, including the bathroom, it would be too expensive.
If you have already decided on using your attic remodel for an extra bedroom, but you don’t have a lot of room in the main area, you may want to consider remodeling the rest of the house to make more room. One way to do this is to create a staircase. It doesn’t have to be fancy – just get creative with the design. If you can’t afford a new staircase, a simple step or two can be enough to make your home more inviting.
If you’ve chosen to use your attic remodel as a place for an extra bedroom, but you do have a large amount of space, you may need to add some type of plumbing to your home. Your first option would be to hire someone to handle the plumbing. It should be relatively inexpensive – usually less than two hundred dollars. Of course, this will depend on the type of plumbing that you choose to have done. Some options include: adding a sewer line to the existing drywall, connecting the existing drywall to a new drain, or installing pipe and drywall joints.
If you’re planning to use your attic remodel as a master suite, then you may have a larger budget to work with. One way to create a master suite is to install the same type of flooring in the other rooms (master bedroom, bathroom, etc.) If you’ve done a renovation before that has been successful, you might want to consider doing the same thing again. This will not only give you a unified design, but it will also help when it comes time to decide on the colors and materials for your new master suite.
When planning your attic remodel as a master suite, remember that your bathroom and living space must be able to connect. For instance, if your bathroom is on the second floor, then you must ensure that you have two exits from your living space. Typically, these two exits are to either the living room or to the main exit (if this is a staircase) from your home. If you do not have two exits, then you will be forced to tie one bathroom door to the other (through a chain link or another similar method), which can be very unattractive and inconvenient.
If you’re doing an attic remodel with the intention of transforming it into a master bedroom or bathroom, then you may need to take some safety precautions. First and foremost, you must ensure that all of the windows in your room are large enough to allow you and your family to be able to see each other. You should also ensure that the roof of your house is in good condition and secure enough to support a roof climb. Before you begin any roof remodel, you may need to consult with a professional roofer or a local building code inspector to make sure your home is up to code. If you’re unsure about whether your home can legally handle a roof climb, then you may need to contact a contractor who specializes in this type of construction work.
Finally, in many areas, if you are planning an attic remodel or a simple ceiling increase, you may be required by building codes to include lighting fixtures inside of the room. These light fixtures are usually white, flat, or put in at the very top of the ceiling. The purpose of this lighting fixture is not to give you light for reading but to give you light in the event of a fire. This is because most fires start in dark places and having a bright light shining in front of you can make things easier for you to find and run to safety. This doesn’t mean that you can’t add additional lighting fixtures to the room; what it does mean is that they have to be in places where they will actually be useful for something. So before you spend thousands of dollars on an attic conversion, make sure that it can actually serve its purpose and that it has proper lighting so that you can use it safely.
