How to Tell if Your Roof Space is Suitable for an Attic

Before you start dreaming of a house less cluttered and what items you can store in your attic, the first step is determining whether your roof space is suitable.

If you can safely do so, we recommend having a quick look into your attic to gain an understanding of both head height and general space.

If you are unable to stand up comfortably within the roof, an attic room is unlikely to be suitable but an essential or dust proof storage option can go in most spaces, including a trussed roof.

How to Make a Truss Attic Suitable for Storage

While the shape of a trussed roof may limit you from turning your attic space into a living space, it can still provide a good amount of storage. Here are some tips on how to transform the area ready for storing all your bits and pieces.

Pick your storage type

  • Dustproof storage – This storage option is great for keeping items safe and clean in a stabilised environment. Lined with protective material to keep dust out and offering a layer of insulative protection, these rooms are also fully sealed creating an independent space within the attic.
  • Essential storage – store items that are rarely used like sporting equipment, sealed boxes, books, smaller furniture items, and even tools.
    With both of these options, there doesn’t need to be any changes made to the trusses, ensuring the structural integrity of your home is not compromised.
