Attic spaces are considered tricky to decorate but it’s not so – there are some simple tips to follow to create a comfy space. Today we’ll have a look at some tips and ideas to decorate an attic kitchen to make it functional and welcoming even if it’s very small. Let’s start.
Use Each Inch Of Space
Especially if your space is small, you should squeeze maximum of it, and an attic space isn’t an exception. Fit your cabinets and shelves the best way possible under the attic ceiling, don’t be afraid that they won’t be usable – they will. It’s considered that attic spaces don’t fit upper cabinets but it’s not so: the cabinets can be upper, too, just cut them according to the angle. As for shelves, it’s even easier, it can be a spice rack or a rack for pots going right under the angle, fitting one isn’t difficult.

In an attic space a skylight is essential, make as many as you can to fill the space with light. Not bringing much natural light often makes the kitchen gloomy and not welcoming. Make the skylights over the cooking and eating space to flood them with light. You may even go for a whole glazed ceiling to enjoy the sky and natural light as much as possible.
