Attic Flooring

The type of flooring options you choose will depend on what you want to use your new space for and load considerations. Options include most or all material choices you would consider for any other room in the house including carpet, natural woods, linoleum, laminate and eco-friendly options like cork or bamboo.

Stairway to Haven

You’ll want easy access to your newly claimed attic space. We can recommend several options including folding ladders, telescoping attic stairs, fire rated attic stairs, pull-down ladders, and stylish wooden or metal spiral staircases.

Let There Be Light

No one wants a dark and gloomy attic!Choose from many options to brighten up your new space including track lighting, recessed pot lights, miniature lights, and many others. LED lights are best for avoiding heat. Use floor lamps to highlight special features and create a cozy look.

Ceiling Finishes

Natural V-groove wood paneling. Decorative ceiling tile. Beadboard panels. Simple painted drywall ceilings. And many other options. Space and clearance permitting, consider a ceiling fan for better climate control.

Custom Cabinetry & Millwork

Built in loft storage. Custom built attic shelving systems and drawers that match the slope of your roof. These and many other options are possible. OakWood has an exclusive production line inside Cabico Manufacturing to give you an affordable cabinet solution tailor-made for your attic space.

This list barely scratches the surface of possibilities for your attics renovation.
