“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times


Don't Be Afraid of Your Attic, Maximize Its Potential!

Chances are, the attic isn't the most popular room in your home, but that doesn't mean it needs to sit there gathering dust and cobwebs! Especially given the current work/study/play from home situation at the moment, a little bit of extra space can go miles, whether it be a quiet study nook or children's playroom that you're looking for. Updating your attic look also has the advantage of transforming your resale value! 


Are you constantly trying to find a blank wall to serve as the background for a video meeting? Is it impossible to get a few minutes of peace and quiet to find your focus? A little bit of remodeling and redecorating can transform your attic into a private space designated for work. If you've got students in the house, this can double as a cozy study spot free from distractions. 


Horror movies tend to do attics a little dirty, but they can be just as inviting as any other space in the home with a little love and care. With the entire family at home, it might be tedious to have to constantly transform communal spaces from playroom to home gym all the time. By providing an established space for playing, studying, and learning, children can benefit from having their own allotted spaces and even begin to take on certain responsibilities. 


If you have a large family or enjoy hosting, a studio apartment is a popular way to create a hospitable space for any guests while increasing privacy for all parties involved. For longer stays, including a bathroom and kitchenette is the smart way to go to ensure everything necessarry is covered. During quieter times of the year, you'll also have the option to rent out the suite for additional income. Definitely something to think about!
