It is always a big but very interesting challenge to design and furnish the living area in the attic. You have to consider the roof pitches when furnishing, but often you feel limited by this architecture. Much easier to design a standard room with straight walls and ceilings. The attic rooms have a very big advantage compared to the usual rooms - the ideal opportunity for great skylights. In this article we show you our cool suggestions for inspirational bedroom designs with gorgeous skylights. Of course, we give you some good tips to help you plan the top floor best.
Side skylights in the bedroom
The roof windows provide enough daylight, which is much healthier than the artificial light. You can also enjoy breathtaking views every day - beautiful landscapes, soothing blue skies, dramatic storm clouds or romantic stars at night. The skylights are a very clever way of interior design, making smaller rooms look larger and more spacious. The roof pitches often create the feeling that the space is very narrow and small, but the clear view of the sky or the distance changes that fact thoroughly.
Cozy bedroom with large skylights
If you have opted for skylights in the attic room, you are on the right track to design a cozy attic. If you have a skylight in the bedroom, you can position your bed directly under the skylight or slightly to the side. In this case, you do not need a privacy screen, but the sunscreen is a must, so you can sleep well on the weekends. In addition, this way you can easily avoid the strong sunshine in the summer. Depending on the architecture in the bedroom, you can use blinds, roller blinds or curtains. The darkening textiles block the light up to 100% and so they guarantee you quiet sheep even in the bright part of the day. The roof windows in the living room are the perfect place for the sofa or for a small and cozy reading area, where the sun rays will certainly improve your mood. The kitchen and dining area are also no problem in the attic. Use the skylights as a high quality light source above the dining table or next to the worktop and reduce the use of artificial light.
