How to design a modern mansard?
Any house has a roof and the majority of the houses have a loft. Yes, we’re talking about that area just under the roof where always seems to be messy, because some of us usually put there useless things. Others keep it as an empty space, and they don’t give it so much importance.
We think that the mansard should have all the attention that is can get. Maybe you’ve wanted some space just for you. When you were a kid, didn’t you climb there to hide? You can still do that.Think about it like a space where you can live or put some important stuff.
Turning a loft into a great mansard could bring you the best benefits:
- It’s cheaper to arrange the mansard than a room: it’s less space to fill;
- It won’t be a space full of dusty cobwebs, wherefrom you can get sick;
- The illumination is better, the light enters almost perpendicularly, and this is a great sensation;
We want to give you some ideas for redecorating your mansard.
The easiest idea is to turn it into a bedroom: it can turn into the children’s bedroom. It’s perfect if you have grown-up children and they already want their own space. They will have their privacy but still will be close to you. You can also think about a guest’s bedroom. If you have enough space, you can also arrange a bathroom.
If you don’t want to move from the house, it’s a great space for a home office. If you work from home or you want your children to do their homework without being disturbed, it’s a really great idea to bring a desk, a chair, and other useful things. Or you can put here documents in cabinets. Impr ovise! It’s not difficult.
This idea is more for women: The problem of storing clothes, accessories and shoes can be solved very easily. If you want ideas to get rid of this problem, the dressing is perfect. You can put your clothes in a ventilated space, do not keep them crammed into a closet, where there’s never what you want. All you have to do is to pick just a few well-chosen pieces with space for hangers, shoes, and accessories. Get rid of any problems and you can feel like a star every morning.
Do you want to turn your space for you and your friends? Nothing simpler: make a mini movie theater in the mansard. It won’t cost as much as you think. All you have to do is invest in some comfortable armchairs and a video projector. You need a white wall and also a good audio system.
Or maybe you want a place where your kids can play. Then just arrange a playroom there. As we’ve already said, you can have an advantage- the light from the room. You won’t hear the noises made by these younger family members because of the better insulation.
If the problems that appear when we’re talking about the roof can be treated by a discussion with a specialist in construction, in terms of design, a mansard offers many possibilities. Basically, that space can be turned into… almost anything. Design your mansard, make that it useful and enjoy the time you spend there you and your family!
