Attic Conversions: A Guide to Making the Most of Your Space

Are you looking for a way to make the most of your space? If so, you may want to consider converting your attic into a livable space. Attic conversions can be a great way to add extra living space to your home, and they can be a lot less expensive than adding on to your home. In this guide, we will discuss the basics of attic conversions and provide you with some tips on how to make the most of your space.


1. What to consider before converting your attic


There are a few things to consider before converting your attic into living space. The most important is the weight of the attic. The attic must be able to support the weight of the new living space and whatever is stored in the attic. The floor of the attic must also be able to support the weight of people walking on it.
The next thing to consider is the insulation in the attic. The attic should be well insulated to keep the living space warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The insulation should also be adequate to prevent moisture from entering the attic and damaging the roof.
Another thing to consider is the ventilation in the attic. The attic should be well ventilated to allow the hot air to escape in the summer and the cold air to escape in the winter. Without proper ventilation, the attic will become too hot or too cold and uncomfortable to live in.


2. The basics of attic conversion


There are a few basics that you need to know before starting an attic conversion. The first is the height of your attic. You need to make sure that the height is tall enough to stand up in, and that there is enough headroom to allow for a comfortable space. The other basic is the insulation of your attic. You will want to make sure that the attic is properly insulated to prevent heat loss in the winter and to keep the space cool in the summer.


3. What to do with the space


Now that we have conquered the space in our house, what do we do with it? There are many options, but we should pick the one that fits our family the best.
If we have a large family, we may want to use the space for a playroom. This will give the kids a place to play that is away from the main part of the house. This can also be a place for them to do their homework, if we want to give them a separate space for that.
If we are a single person or a couple, we may want to use the space for a home office. This can be a great way to get work done without having to leave the house. It can also be a place to relax and get away from the rest of the world.
No matter what we choose to do with the space, it is important that we make sure it fits our needs.

Romo Remodeling came highly recommended by friends who had their kitchen and bathroom remodeled. They did an amazing job. They completely gutted our 1980’s house and created a luxurious yet relaxing space for us. Jorge and his team worked with my husband and I to integrate my ideas and tastes into a design that is stunning. Karla was our project coordinator and was always available when I had design questions and helped me narrowing down options. When it came to the construction side of things, their attend to detail is incredible. Julio was our superintendent and he made sure that each aspect of the job was done exactly as specified on the drawings. Overall, Romo Remodeling was great to work with and we are extremely happy we chose them!

Romo remodeling is my go to company for all your home needs. I have referred him many times to my clients that have either needed something touched up or even a big project to build a whole second story add on to a house. They are very communicative and will give you the best solution to your home needs!

This is the fourth large remodeling project we have had Jorge and his team complete for us. And, once again, he didn’t disappoint! His eye for design is amazing! He knows taste! We love our kitchen! Love the shaker style doors on our custom cabinets. The wood tile floors are my favorite. We would highly recommend Jorge and his crew!!

Jorge and his team are amazing. They arrived on time and were very professional. He’s not the cheapest, but he does have the best quality of work. We are very happy with our kitchen and bathroom remodel. Can’t wait to use him again for our pool remodel.

Our family was looking to renovate the master and kids bathrooms, but we were unsure with what remodeling company to go with. We were looking for a very clean look with neutral beige colors and white quartz counters. Jorge and his designers made sure everything we pictured in our minds came to life and even recommended ideas to make the bathroom even more sleek. You could really tell that him and his team really know what they are doing. He kept us informed throughout the entire building process of any issues as well as updates to how everything was coming a long. Our master bathroom now looks so elegant and even the kids are loving the new look. We are so glad we we made the right decision with Romo Remodeling!

We have used this company in the past when we renovated our kitchen with brand new countertops, painted cabinets, backsplash, and flooring. His team was able to create it into a whole new space I barely recognize and we get so many compliments from our family and friends. We decided that we would contact them again when it came time to creating an additional room for our home. We will be welcoming a new baby girl within the next few months and I know we are going to be just as impressed with their work as last time. They have a reputation for their professionalism, attention to detail, and innovation so I know we can trust them with this next project for our family!

We highly recommend Jorge Romo and his crew!! They did an awesome job building a balcony addition to our house, fixing the stucco, and repainting everything. They worked fast, replied quickly when we had questions, were very detail oriented and clearly have very high standards. All in all we are very happy with both the process and the outcome and cannot praise them enough!

We hired Romo Remodeling to update our kitchen last year, they did an amazing job. So we had them come out early this year to remodel our pool and they did a great job again. Easy to work with and dependable team, we had a great experience.
