How Turning an Attic Into Storage Space Can Reap ROI for Homeowners



Practically every homeowner in Australia wants to keep the value of their property high and the interior of their building comfortable. Those of you considering selling your home in the next few years will want to do everything in your power to make sure you get a lucrative offer from the right buyer, but all homeowners enjoy stylish, modern upgrades that allow them to enjoy their buildings, regardless of how long they plan on living in them. Turning your attic into storage space offers one of the most cost-effective and practical ways to raise both the value and the functionality of your home. When you convert your attic into storage space, you’ll have more available square metres in which to keep items that would otherwise clutter up your living space or require you to rent a storage locker. As a result, you’ll increase the amount of room in your home that can be used for accommodation, entertainment, and other amenities — raising the value of your property in the process.

Questions about Turning Your Attic into Storage Space? We Have the Solutions

Homeowners often have questions before they decide to convert an attic into storage space. At Space Maka Built, we have plenty of experience turning attic areas into storage spaces, so we know how to address common concerns. Some of the questions we most frequently receive include the following:


  • How much space will I need for basic storage? It depends on what you want to store in your attic space, but chances are you have more room in your attic than you think. In a given home in the Sydney region, the attic can account for up to 30% of the building’s usable space.

  • What type of ladder will be best for accessing the new storage space? We provide a range of different ladders which also include Skylark electric ladders, which function using an insulated fixed-frame trapdoor that creates an airtight seal upon being closed.

  • What insulation will I need? Again, this depends on the nature of the items you plan on keeping in your attic and their susceptibility to heat or cold. However, we offer numerous options that are designed to suit a variety of needs.

  • Do you use dust-proof membranes? We recommend using dust-proof membranes to line the roof of your home so that the items you store in your attic space will not be caked with layers of dust over prolonged periods.

  • Can I add a skylight? We can accommodate clients who want skylight installation but can also suggest conventional lighting for attic spaces. Remember: much of your home’s wiring is probably located in the attic anyway, so installing a light in that space should be possible.
