The best place for children to play is obviously outdoors, but during snow or rain, they require need some indoor playing space. You can convert your attic into a playroom…don’t believe it…you can really do it. You have to keep in mind that there is space in the room. This can be done by measuring and checking if it is possible. It will be able to take the weight of your playing kids and their friends if you can walk in the attic without any noises and squeaks.
Prior to starting work on the project ensure that you have all the needed permits from the office of the mayor. If you are working on it yourself you will have to get it but it will be taken care by the contractor, if you have hired one for turning your attic into a playroom.
An important thing which you need to do first is to make sure that the attic has sufficient lighting. The bulb used during the day will not be enough for your children and you can even fix a skylight to have natural light in the room.
A window is also useful to get natural light and you can get a window if there isn’t one in the attic. Consult a carpenter for the job. It does not have to be a regular size window; even an odd shape or size will be fine for the playroom.
Then you need to start working on the floor and the walls. It requires good wall insulation so that it does not get very hot in the summer. Paint the walls with light colors to enhance the lighting provided by the skylight and the windows. Children may be coloring in their playroom and you must use materials which are easy to clean as well as durable. The floor can be laminated or you can also use wood with paint or marble.
A good thing when turning the attic into a playroom is that there is no need to purchase new furniture as you can do with just a plastic table and some plastic chairs. In case children want to sleep, a mattress can be rolled out easily and you can store them in a trunk. If required you can get some shelves installed in the attic for toys etc.
It is quite easy to turn the attic into a playroom. You must keep cleaning materials at hand as you will have to clean up every time they are here.
