- Color the slanted walls and ceiling in white or any light color. Why? Because white and light color deliver the illusion of space. It makes the room look bigger than it actually is.
- Add a bench or window seat. That can be a perfect spot for storing things, working, reading, and such. It may be impossible to add a coffee table, reading area, and additional storage in an attic bedroom due to a lack of space. So you need to maximize the existing space without crowding it.
- Create a canopy or a faux one. This is an ideal design for a teenage girls’ bedroom. You don’t have to use a real canopy fabric if it’s too much for you. Just use a piece of light fabric or netting on the slanted wall.
- Be efficient with storage. Attic bedrooms with slanted walls usually have limited space. Your best bet has built-in closets or cabinets. It is also recommended to have wall shelves instead of a standing rack.
- Add some textures to the room. If the room is small, stay away from stripes and florals because those patterns are too much for a smaller room. However, a plain room is not a choice either. So as an alternative, you can use one or two textured pieces in the bedroom, like bedspreads or cushions. Wallpapers, wall finish, or textured paints can also be your choice.
Well, good luck with your next remodeling project!
