When I was younger, the attic was reserved for storing Christmas presents, Halloween costumes and pink fiberglass. But these days attic apartments seem like the coolest thing on the block. Small, cozy and manageable, it’s the poor man’s penthouse.
Some homes covert their attics into the perfect guest bedroom getaway. Others save the space for the master suite. Basement rec rooms are being replaced by the upstairs crash pad. And why not a home office in the treetops?
Here’s an inspiration board of people who have made great use of the top floor.
