If you’re planning on using the attic for simply storage, then, your choices don’t have to go beyond sheets of plywood. However, transforming your attic into a treasure could require a little more effort.
An alternative would be to use pine planks to finish out the attic flooring. This will create a solid floor that will hold up for years and once in place, you can complete the attic conversion by staining and sealing the pine floor, providing a rich touch while also bringing out the grain of the wood.
Now, if you plan to have a lot of traffic in the space, you may want to go with a wood than is even sturdier than pine. Bamboo is an option that many people overlook. However, this type of wood is very resilient and will easily outlast many other kinds of wood floors. While this flooring option is a little more expensive, it easily makes up the difference in the many years it holds up.
Keep in mind that the attic flooring itself is mainly to provide a stable foundation to the space. However, it is possible to finish these options with any type of stain or paint desired. These options will also help control your budget and keep the costs of your attic renovation to a minimum.
Also remember that with any home remodeling project, it is important to take into consideration the purpose for the space, how much traffic the area must support, and also the general weight of the objects that will remain in the space long term.
