Using the Attic For Storage

Location – Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast (and all areas in between)

If you are considering making use of your attic for storage…..excellent idea!  Considering that most Queensland homes are suitable for basic attic storage at the very least, it makes sense to utilise this wasted space.  Due to attic storage being a rather niche concept in Queensland, many people are either unaware of the concept or unsure of how it works or how to go about it.  The good news is, that Roof Space Renovators are specialists in this area and can answer any questions you may have.  We install attic ladders and convert roof spaces into usable attic storage areas daily in South East Queensland.  So if you require additional storage space within your home, you are in the right place.  Attic storage could very well be the answer to your space issues. 

So….where do you start?  Well…first it is important to understand that the attic is a structural component of the home and if you are planning on utilising this space, it should be done properly.  As part of our service, we organise for one of our trained consultants to visit your home and inspect your roof space.  Each home is built differently, therefore not all of our attic ladder models will fit in your home.  Nor will all our storage options be practical in every home.  Our storage flooring is not laid the same in every house and is dependent on the build of the home.  Therefore, it is certainly not a ‘one size fits all’ process, by any means.  Our consultant will need to discuss with you your attic ladder placement options, take some measurements and subsequently present details on the ladder models that will work within your home.  The consultant will also then be able to discuss your storage requirements and inform you of what is achieveable within your roof space.  Factors such as light and ventilation will also be discussed, if required.        

As mentioned, we have various levels of attic storage solutions available, starting at just basic storage through to a premium attic storage option.  Basic and Clean Storage rooms consist of storage flooring that when laid correctly, is rated to a storage capacity of 75kg per m2 plus foot traffic, so it can provide ample extra storage to a home that needs the space. If you have loads of height within your roof space, you may want to go with something a little more fancy and have a Premium Attic Storage Room built.  This involves building a structural floor and comes complete with gyprock walls, roof windows etc.  This kind of attic renovation can double as an additional room such as, hobby room, kids playroom, study etc.

Once it is realised how useful the roof space can actually be, most people with attic storage comment that they could not live without it again.  We often have people say that the addition of an attic storage area or room, ‘is the best decision they have ever made’.  It could mean that the garage can finally be cleared out so that the car can fit in it again.  Or the spare room can be decluttered and once again used for guests.  Whatever the reason, when you consider that the roof space is a huge wasted space within most homes, it makes sense to convert it into an area that can actually be used.
