Small tweaks created big changes in this beach home attic
Many of our remodeling projects focus on creating a more usable space for growing families, and today's featured blog is no exception. Generally, when we think about hosting and entertaining, we tend to focus on the kitchen and living spaces. However, equally important are the bedrooms for all of your guests. Today we will run through a unique attic remodel that turned this storage space into the perfect bunk room for the grandkids!
The "Grandma's Attic" project took a small and cramped attic and completely revamped the space to create room for storage and guests. With some minor remodeling and some finishing touches, Boardwalk Builders was able to transition the attic space into a finished room with just enough extra space for family gatherings. A small closet was removed and replaced with two large built in dressers at the top of the stairs. Boardwalk Builders finished the existing hardwood floor to better suit the foot traffic of a bedroom. The paneled walls were painted throughout to help reflect the natural light around the room and additional lighting was installed. The existing half bath lacked any storage. By building out the small corner space, Boardwalk Builders created a storage cabinet tucked behind the toilet.
The finished project has functionality as a partial attic, extra beds for the grandkids to pile in as necessary, and makes use of the existing half bath. The storage space that was added helps keep the attic free of clutter, enabling the small room to sleep up to 6 guests! Each of the single beds has a matching trundle bed that can be pulled out into the sitting area to double the sleeping capacity. The half bath is now convenient to the bunk room, and has functional storage space. In addition to the Boardwalk Builders' team, the home owner's grandkids made their mark on the improved space with custom handprint paint up the stairwell walls!
Some small tweaks and efficient planning increased the functionality of this small space, and created more space for a growing family! Do you have a space that needs some tweaks? Call Boardwalk Builders today to get started on your project!
