What are pros and cons of finishing an attic?
heating/ventilating/a.conditiong/ - HVAC additions etc... It also may be more expensive to heat and cool the attic, if it wasn't properly insulated when the home was built. Either way, an attic can be a great amenity. Deciding on if it is right for you and your family home is another story. :)
First - consider the age of the home. If your home is somewhat modern (within the last 20-30 years, finishing an attic could have different pros and cons than a 100 year old home. Pros of any aged home: Additional square footage to enjoy, live in, can add this on to
open space at top of stairs
Love this! I don't know if it's the openness, the color, or what. Feels very open for an upstairs room w/ slanted ceilings.

Could be an attic-style multipurpose room (study, quiet area, rumpus??)
window desk with low roof and stairs
bedroom. All of the mechanical necessities are tucked underneath the other gable, leaving this space open and usable. "If you ask me whether it is better to finish a basement or an attic, I will vote attic every time," Kauffman Tharp says. "Dark and dank vs. sunny and breezy. Which would you choose?" M
Take over the attic. If you have extra space in your attic and need a home studio, consider renovating it. Dormer windows and/or skylights can be added to let in the natural light. See the rest of this
An added plus is to have a window at the top of the stairs to bring light down into the home and illuminate the way up.

The architect on this project worked on the stair detail, but any contractor or Home improvement store could help with materials if you showed them this image( if you're planning to do it yourself)
It is similar to my attic layout and this would be great for making it functional.
Colorful & bright attic kids space
decor for soccer room or attic
In general like the idea of an office nook / library at the top of the stairs with a computer space by a window.
A spot for the kids. Maybe they need an extra place to hang out on their own, use the computer or study. Whatever it is, a room in the attic will give them privacy and a sense of their own space.

Great use for the upper floor of a garage
I love this door. Where to find door like this for my attic entrance? Will really appreciate if you let me know. Thanks!
cool door to attic storage area
10. If you have a bit of space in your attic – why not transform it into your own craft room? A lick of paint, some skylights and voila! Your very own dream space.
client's hobby is making custom cards, and this studio full of storage and light is a wonderful workspace. The skylights let in natural light, and also open to let in the fresh air. More vintage plumbing fixtures were used here; the shallow sink on the right is made of soapstone and Smith designed a custom
