Bringing furniture flush with the roof slope creates free space in the middle of the room. However, it requires a lot of patience and also willingness to compromise if existing shelves or cabinets should fulfill this function. With a tailor-made by the carpenter, however, ensures that the shelf or the cabinet fit exactly. When the shelves in a loft extension have the Master carpenter a part with doors. This makes the room still airy. And in the closed compartments decorative things can be accommodated.
This bench also fits exactly in front of the knee loft of the converted attic in a listed old building in Stuttgart. The architects of Interiorpark have put their focus on multifunctionality.
The sloping roof shapes a room. But you do not have to submit completely to your dictates. If you want to put your bed up to the highest point in the room - directly under the ridge - you do not have to do without cabinets in the room. They nestle against the sloping roof and thus use the space down to the smallest angle - but custom-made units are necessary for this.
To put a kitchen under the roof slope may not be so unusual at first glance. But if the entire wall height is used up to the slope, it looks quite different. In their project Pythagoras the carpenters of Holzrausch have done just that. The result is a gray triangle that meets all the requirements of a modern kitchen down to the smallest angle.

In this dressing room of a Munich apartment, the upper cabinets nestle against the sloping roof. The space under the ridge may seem almost as a gift. But probably the planners of interior design Rathke deliberately left this space free, for hats, for example.
With stop doors in the sloping roof, the stop must always be on the higher side, ie towards the ridge. If you do not like that, maybe you should fall back on pocket doors. They are often used in the kitchen and disappear between the cupboards in a dedicated compartment.
Especially with open attics it makes sense to use cabinets as room dividers. They can be half high or reach below the ridge.
The wall unit designed by Hennigs Börn Interiors at Villa Falkenstein in Frankfurt certainly creates plenty of room for clothing - and at the same time shields the bathroom from the bedroom.
The architects Spandriwiedemann also use the partition wall right down to the ridge as a fitted wardrobe. The sophistication here: A supposed cabinet door leads to the bathroom behind.
To fit a shelf on the gable wall accurately creates a lot of storage space. In London, for example, for toys and children's books. The architects from Quartet Architecture in Bolingbroke Grove have planned this blue installation shelf.
Ideal for books: JWT Associates has transformed a curtain wall from the top floor to below the ridge completely into a bookshelf.
The top shelves are admittedly a bit hard to reach. But here you can stow the books that you have already read and rarely take in your hand. Otherwise, a library leader will help.
There is always room for a clothes rail in the attic. Shirts and pants do not need a two-meter-high wardrobe. Often it is already done at eighty, ninety centimeters. Then an elegant dressing room emerges like here in Atlanta.
A well thought-out idea: put the shoes on the shelf above the clothes rail. Especially high heals fit perfectly in the sloping niche.
Under the roof slope are the possibilities limited? Not necessarily. The slope stimulates the imagination. This combination of drawer cabinet with opening in the firing direction and clothes rail with the direction of sloping roof shows what is possible.
This cabinet in a children's room in London emphasizes the shelves under the slope with a bright red. On the front side, the boards are inconspicuously painted in the gray cabinet color.
The roof of a house usually does not sit directly on the ceiling of the top floor. Often, the outer wall is pulled up a bit, and then comes the roof construction. This piece of wall is called "knee stick" or "drempel" and is very well suited as storage space. One way to make the most of this space is to make drums that go right to the height of the beginning roof construction and fill the niche.
Printed cupboards are often found in old houses. They consist of shelves with door fronts. The hinged door fittings in a renovated old attic in Minneapolis emphasize the age of the house.

With foldable doors, Classen Design completed this construction - a built-in closet that extends across the entire width of the room.
To conceive the Drempelschrank as a large drawer saves its users tedious work in the depths of the sloping roof. This solution is also gentle on the knees because the drawer can be pulled out to the point where you can stand upright.
Also, the storage space under the seat in the sloping roof can run on rollers. Then the boxes can be easily pulled out, as here in a nursery.
