Penthouse interior design: 6 design ideas for attics

Publicado el 22 de December de 2022

In the world of interior design, the attic is the most interesting space, but also the most complicated. Choosing every detail of the decoration wisely is essential to achieve the balance that allows you to enjoy each space while awakening the senses. The task requires time and dedication, and at Vika Interior we are going to help you achieve it.

There are many ideas that can be carried out in such a small space. The challenge for the interior designer is to achieve spaces with their own personality both in those attics with low and sloping ceilings, which have little light because they have few windows, and in attics with high ceilings and great lighting.

How to make the most of the space and lighting in your attic?

Penthouses have a special charm and give a feeling of warmth that accompanies you in every corner. Designing a space like this poses some dilemmas, but nothing that interior decoration and interior design can fix.

From Vika Interior we want to give you some tips with which you can make the most of the space of your attic in a simple way, let’s go there!

Evaluates the space

Measure every corner of your attic, in these small spaces every millimetre counts! This is essential for deciding the size of the bed, if the furniture you like fits the space available or if you need to choose custom-made furniture that will favour its functionality.

In addition, it is often thought that, logically, it would be advisable to use furniture that is also small in size. However, what you really need to reduce is the number, our brain is sensitive to distractions, and the more elements it perceives, however small they may be, the smaller the space will seem.

You also have to take into account the natural light points in order to make the most of them with furniture that does not block the light.

Your room

If you have little space for your bedroom, we recommend choosing custom-made furniture. You can make the most of every centimetre of the bedroom, for example, using custom-made shelves in that corner that seems impossible, using a hidden bed that allows space for a dressing table… customise every detail to your taste and needs!

Also, if you have little natural light, avoid dark colours. You can create points of colour through the textile elements of the bed, or through paintings and decorative elements in light tones.

Customised and functional base units

In interior design, making the most of every corner and natural light is essential. A fantastic idea is to use integrated wardrobes, which are completely functional and unnoticed. If you have large windows, choose low storage units, which will allow the light to pass through.

If you are an indecisive person, don’t worry. Our interior design company in Malaga will take care of completely reorganizing the available space in your attic and advise you on which furniture to choose to give it greater functionality.

Breaking down barriers

Removing internal partitions to unify spaces will benefit you, on the one hand, by allowing natural light to reach every corner; on the other hand, it eliminates dead zones and increases the functionality of each area. If your attic is small in itself, with walls in between, it is very difficult to make the most of every centimetre of the space.

Do you have a terrace?

One of the advantages of living in an attic is the terrace, you should not neglect the decoration of the terrace of your attic, it should be in line with the rest of the home.

If you have a small terrace, it is very important to choose furniture that can be used for various activities or choose folding terrace furniture. From Vika Interior we advise you to choose made-to-measure furniture that will not only favour functionality, but will also be more resistant, as they will be outdoors.

The best colours for the decoration of your attic terrace are neutral tones. If you want to add a touch of colour, you can do so with some accessories and outdoor plants. Earth tones are perfect for the outdoor space, they create a relaxed atmosphere and avoid attracting the attention of bugs!

Interior design will give your attic a breath of fresh air and make it look much bigger with a few small changes. If you are looking for an interior designer in Malaga visit our interior design studio and we will help you to make your attic your favourite stylish corner.
