Attics are sometimes disregarded because they are thought to be too difficult to reach, too hot in the summer and too chilly in the winter, too dark, too dusty, and, in general, not easy to use for anything else but a storage room. In keeping with current interior design trends, the attic can be transformed into a cozy space where friends and family can spend time and have fun together. It might be a cozy nook for an old couple to rest, read a book, or watch a favorite TV show without being disturbed, or it can be a spot for youth to meet friends for a drink and throw a party. The attic offers an ideal opportunity to create a second living room. Many people would use this opportunity to establish an additional space to exhibit their extra ideas. So, open the roof by adding a skylight, and you have a beautiful, soothing place to sit and gaze at the stars.
