An attic can be transformed into a one or two bed bedroom and really be turned into a magical space. But if you want to make it even more special, you can get the kids involved and add some of their crafts to the room. You can also create the room in a way that allows them to express their creativity and channel some of their energy towards something productive. Here's how you can turn an attic into the perfect bedroom with crafts.

Have the Attic Cleaned

First, before you can actually turn an attic into a bedroom, you have to make sure that it is clean first. You also have to make sure that it's pest proof. An attic cleaning company like Attic Projects Services could help you get your attic clean fast, remove any rodents, and make sure none come back. They also offer insulation services to make sure that the kids will be comfortable in the cold months and that you won't have to overpay on heating.

Work with a Pro

We strongly suggest you work with a professional contractor if you're going to be converting your attic into a living space -not only because it's a pretty complex renovation, but also because you have to be aware of building codes as well.

For instance, did you know that the attic will need a standard staircase in order to be up to code? You'll also need to extend components like heating, plumbing, and HVAC to the space, which all require professional experience. So, unless you have real expertise in the area, let contractors handle the main part.

Get Creative

There are tons of ways that you could use craft to enhance the bedroom. One thing you could do is turn mason jars into wall sconces and fix a series of them onto a piece of polished and treated reclaimed wood. Now you have a nice wall fixture you can use to both add a rustic charm and plenty of light to the room. Another thing you could do is paint a tree branch, preferably from a tree you already own, and use it as a curtain rod. Let your imagination roam free and try to use natural materials to stay within the attic room theme.

Let Your Children Be Creative

You should also turn the room into a creative space. A cork board with a dry erase board could be a great addition and a great way to give them another surface than the walls to write on. Another thing you could do is cover part of the wall in chalkboard paint. Now they'll have a space they can personify with their own creations. Or they could use it to play games like hangman or tic tac toe, for instance.

An attic can be a perfect place for any child's bedroom. If you follow these few tips, not only will you be able to build an attic bedroom they will love, but one that will make your house stand out from the rest.
