If your space is small, like many attics, do not neglect the extra room on the walls. Walls are a great place to put hooks, shelves, and hangings that might otherwise clutter the area.

Perception is everything. Because attics are typically smaller, adding color to the walls may only serve to close the room even more. Instead of painting the walls, consider adding color to the floors. This can give your space the bright or rich feeling you want, without adding to the cramped nature of the room.
