Many older homes do not have finished attics; they’re either strictly for storage, or completely inaccessible. You probably didn’t have a choice in this matter. Maybe you’ve wanted to renovate your attic in the past, but you didn’t have the time or resources. This is just one of the great benefits that come with building a custom home. When you make your own floor plan, you can finish your attic along with the rest of your home. Let’s take a look at some advantages this brings.
Increased Home Value
An attic can be made into an extra bedroom, an art studio, a children’s play area, or anything in between. This extremely versatile space makes for a great home value. Not only can you add another bed and bath, but you’re providing that much more space to the home which can be used for both storage and enjoyment. Empty attics are a thing of the past, and it’s incredibly beneficial to have a finished attic in your home due to the monetary value it brings.
Saves on Energy Bills
A finished attic means there’s going to be an insulated room above the house at all times. This aids the HVAC unit in successfully heating or cooling the house without using extra energy. Building a custom home means you get to create with energy efficiency in mind. A finished attic is the perfect way to keep bills low.
There are plenty of spaces within an attic that can provide you with storage. You can have that extra bedroom while still having the space for storing away belongings. This is perfect for items you don’t use all year long–holiday decor, extra entertainment furniture, and outdoor sports equipment are all great examples.
