Bob's Tip of the Day: Can your attic be converted? Habitable attic space must satisfy the same requirements that govern rooms in the rest of the house. To pass code, there must be at least 70 square feet where the ceiling height is 5 feet or higher. At least 50% of the usable area (calculated above) must have ceilings of at least 7 feet. Some homeowners satisfy this code by installing a dormer.

When decorating, select staple pieces that are neutral in color and style, like this classic tufted linen sofa, so it will be easy to mix up your look without spending a fortune.
The Attic This attic, like many others, could easily have become a glorified closet. Instead, it became a cozy home office, with a narrow writing desk and a pair of low, wide bookshelves that fit snugly under the slanted, wallpapered ceiling. A sisal rug, the wooden blinds, and a vintage-style light add to the room's warmth.
