5 Quirky Attic Entrance Ideas

Comfort is important, but what about presentation? Some of us like that, don’t we? What if we told you that you could have both when designing your attic? Here is a look at both. Check out some interesting attic entrance ideas.

A Climbing Wall for Teenage Boys

If you have a little boy who fancies climbing up and down walls, you might want to check this out. Turn the attic entrance in their room into a climbing wall which gives them the thrill of a rock climbing experience without having to leave the house. They will be entertained, and you won’t have to think about how to make it look interesting.

Designers have gotten rather good at designing attics into bright and attractive spaces while keeping the entrance only the first step into a world of wonder. No reason you can’t have fun before entering the attic.

A Sleek Staircase for Everyone

If you are not looking for something that is that stimulating, you can go for a simple staircase model. These are slim and look like a regular staircase but are strong. These sleek models are known for their efficient design and how compact they can be. They are also solid and can take about 600 pounds of weight.

If you are worried about managing space, this is an excellent choice. And it is easy to access the attic too. Talk about style and comfort in one package.

Our third selection is a regular-looking staircase. It is a steady fixture and can be painted in any color to match the palette of the rest of the room. This staircase is attached to the floor, which means you don’t have to worry about its stability or the safety of anyone climbing up and down.

The design also allows for a little storage space under the staircase which can be a reading nook or a place to display knick-knacks. You might not be able to turn it into a closet space, but there is certainly space for some smart box storage options.

Bookshelf in the Front, Staircase in the Back

Many people stay with their nose buried in a book when they don’t want to deal with the people in the house or the world at large. You could say that this design is inspired by that sentiment. Place a bookshelf with a transparent back and arrange your stairs behind it. And who knows! You could pick up a book while you’re on your way to the stairs and hide in the attic and read.

The Classic Push and Open

This one is found in a lot of homes. It’s essentially a door that is placed on the floor of the attic. When you want to enter the attic, you push it from the stairs and enter the storage space. It’s simple to design, elegant, and easy to use – everything you want from an attic entrance.


These are just a few ideas to get you started. And there’s a lot more where this came from.
