Attics - Not JUST For Storage!

Searching for a home decor idea that will wow all your friends, family, and other guests? If you're looking for home decor inspiration, look up! The Property Shop at the Lake is here to open your eyes to one of the most powerful (but often underused) home design opportunities you'll ever have -- your attic.

Your Attic Could Have A Lot Of Potential

While redecorating the attic isn't feasible for every homeowner, there are plenty of homes at the Lake of the Ozarks that have empty attics simply waiting to be turned into an incredible oasis. Depending on the size and shape of your attic, it could be used for any number of different things - an extra bedroom, a movie lounge, a reading nook, or anything else you could imagine.

Here are some great ideas to help get your creative juices flowing:

1. Private Kids' Hide-A-Way
If you have kids or teenagers in the house, they will probably love the idea of having a secret getaway in their home. With a little TLC, your attic could turn into an awesome kids' zone complete with bean bag chairs, carpeting, and maybe even video games and a TV. The sky is the limit!

2. Spare Bedroom
If you're in need of extra space to sleep other guests, you may want to consider re-purposing your attic so it can serve as an extra bedroom. It doesn't have to be a big space; even a small attic bedroom can be a great asset to your home. 

3. Movie Pad
What could possibly be cooler than an attic movie lounge? If you are looking for a cool way to add interest and intrigue to your home, turning your unused attic space into a cool movie pad could be a great solution. Once you install your TV and speakers, all you need is plush carpet and a few comfy places to sit. You'll be set!

4. Cozy Library
Is your attic space limited? No worries! All you need are a few bookshelves, a comfy chair, and books to create a cozy library space that you'll never want to leave. Everyone will love it!

Your Repurposed Attic Will Have Multiple Benefits

In addition to creating a bonus room that will make all your friends and family jealous, remodeling your attic can have a great impact on your home's resale value. When it comes time to sell your house at the Lake of the Ozarks, having a remodeled attic can be a powerful way to set your home apart.
