An attic bedroom is a luxurious addition to any modern home. Your property will gain value, you will have an extra space with which to experiment, and you can create a truly cozy, comfortable environment that helps to make your home feel unique.
To get the most out of an attic bedroom, stylish decorating is critical, and there are certain elements that can transform a drafty space into something truly irresistible.
Create a Bed with Five-Star Comfort
As with any bedroom, the attic bedroom should revolve around comfort.
However, while finding the right frame and mattress is essential, the best bedding to cover it is invaluable. Not only should your choice of sheets and blankets be soft and gentle to avoid irritation, they should allow your skin to breathe through the night.
Isselle’s range of bedding, such as the Auden Sheet Set, features pillow cases and sheets crafted with brushed microfiber. As these are breathable and lightweight, they feel softer than rougher alternatives. They are also safer for people suffering with allergies, as irritants struggle to linger in the thinner fibers.
Another benefit is their ability to stay fresh and smooth with minimal upkeep, helping you to stay comfortable without feeling as if you need to even wrinkles out of them again and again.
With luxurious bedding, your attic bedroom will feel as inviting as a five-star hotel room.
Experiment with Subtle Lighting
Lighting can be difficult to get right in attic bedrooms, but subtle is always best.
Too much light may detract from the coziness of the space, so experiment with a variety of low-key options. Christmas lights or fairy lights work beautifully: small, discrete, yet dynamic, these are available in multiple colors and are easy to hang.
Simply drape these lights around your headboard, across your attic’s wooden beams, or on your walls. Their soft glow flatters the space, and cultivates a relaxing atmosphere.
Add Texture and Warmth with Rugs & Throws
Utilize a variety of textures to avoid your attic bedroom feeling bland.
Rugs and throws are ideal additions, diversifying the tactile quality of your floors and furniture. A plush throw across your bed, such as the Frette Bliss Chocolate Throw, adds color and softness; it also brings extra warmth through the night.
A rug placed beside your bed can minimize the unpleasant cold of a hardwood floor, particularly when climbing out of bed first thing in the morning (and preventing you getting into bed with cold feet last thing at night).
The Libeco Tanzania, for instance, is soft, smooth, and surprisingly lightweight. Alternatively, you may prefer a denser rug with a higher pile.
Don’t be afraid to embrace varied colors and textures with your rugs and throws, but make sure you don’t go for anything too large (as this may appear to shrink the space).
With the right pieces, you can transform your attic bedroom into a space to be proud of, boasting all the warmth, charm, and style of the most luxurious hotels.
