The loft has gotten a bad rap for years. Although it is widely considered a dark and dusty room where holiday decorations are hardly used and pieces of furniture are thrown away to collect cobwebs, we argue that these often overlooked upstairs rooms – with high domed ceilings, charming windows , remote location – really makes the bedroom ideal.

Need proof? Up front, we have put together a collection of 14 charming attic bedrooms that definitively prove the top floor of your home doesn’t have to be solely dedicated to storing Christmas decorations and hiding scratched wooden furniture. Including modern rooms that are wet by rural retreats rich in texture, this attractive attic room might just make you pack your bags and ride.

Scroll up for inspiration about turning the often-overlooked top floor into the bedroom, which Instagram has.


1. The Light-Filled Attic Bedroom With an Exposed Brick Wall

Offering not one but two skylights, this sunny attic room is a bright and airy upstairs retreat. The all-white color palette utilizes the abundance of natural light, making this small space look and feel bigger than the original. Open brick walls add to the warmth and texture of a neutral space.


2. The Cozy Attic Bedroom With a Statement Pendant Light Fixture

Let this bedroom show you exactly how to place the domed attic ceiling for good use. A chandelier makes a statement accentuating the height of the room by attracting the eye. In particular, the texture of the fixture, coupled with antique wooden furniture and vintage textiles, also provides a comfortable atmosphere for this space.


3. The Vintage-Inspired Attic Bedroom With a Micro-Floral Wallpaper Accent Wall

This vintage-inspired attic room – complete with accent walls adorned with micro-flower wallpapers – is a quaint definition. Iron-framed beds flanked by antique bedside tables and classic table lamps add to the traditional aesthetic. An armchair in a large-scale flower mold completes the look.


4. The Neutral Attic Bedroom That’s a Masterclass in Layering Textures

Although this loft bedroom is decorated in a neutral color palette, it is not boring. Featuring shiplap walls, knitted textiles, and natural fiber accents, this is a master class in coating textures. Also, notice how the chandelier accentuates the high domed ceiling and breaks the symmetrical design. Genius


5. The Sun-Soaked Attic Bedroom With a Skylight That Doubles as a Headboard

In this sunny attic room, a sky lamp cleverly functions as a headboard. While functional features can be considered difficult to design around architectural details, this space embraces them as aesthetically pleasing assets. The all-white color palette maximizes light and cool effects from the ceiling.


6. The Attic Bedroom With Awkward Architectural Details That Work

But another attic room that cleverly embraces the awkward architectural details, this space shows how to turn uncomfortable features into design assets. Here, the bed is positioned between two immovable sloping walls, drawing eyes to the window and highlighting the window as a focal point in the room.

In this attic room soaked in sunlight, suspended lamps intelligently use small spaces with sloping ceilings. Black cord lights protrude from the soft gray walls, draw the eye to the ceiling and visually utilize the vertical space of the room. Roman window shade treatments make it easy for sunlight to come before going to sleep.


9. The Bright White Attic Bedroom With Shiplap Walls

In this light-filled attic bedroom, horizontally mounted shiplap wall panels stretch the room making the small space appear larger than it really is. In addition, bright white hues and reflectors from shiplap help visually increase the square size of the space by giving the room a bright and airy appearance.

For a comfortable attic bedroom that also functions as a living room, choose a sofa bed that can be converted, as seen in this space. Ideal for guest hosting, this configuration offers all the flexibility that is often needed by the host. In addition, a trail of rope lighting along the sloping wall draws attention upward and emphasizes dramatic high ceilings.
