Before and After: An Inviting Attic

An underused attic space was recently given new life as a cheerful, teen-friendly hangout space. Beforehand, its beige walls and brown carpeting were definitely less than inspiring.

To see the results,

.

To make the room functional, it was divided into smaller spaces based on the activities that would be done in each area, such as a computer area for doing homework and a comfy sofa area for hanging out with friends. Bright colors on the walls and furniture updated the space, and an eco-friendly cork floor is both a durable and unusual choice for this space. I think it looks great. What about you?

Oh wow, I totally missed out on the teen friendly part. This is far from teen friendly. This is more early 20's bachelor pad or an oversized dorm room.

Exactly a trading spaces inspired room. And i think thats its downfall, the room is not infused with enough character from the teens who actually inhabit the space. I am not sure if its an improvement.

It reminds me of trading spaces. It's not something I would put in my house, but it looks okay in a picture. I just hate that rug though!

I never would have thought of that color scheme but it def looks like something out of a magazine. I think it's really great.

I agree. The color scheme is... okay. Seems like they just painted the place and added a colorful rug. Definitely an improvement from the "before" though.

Not completely sold on the color scheme, but yeah, it's definitely a big improvement.
