attic meaning

EN[ˈætɪk] [-ætɪk]
  • An attic or a loft is a space found directly below the pitched roof of a house or other building (also called garret or sky parlor).
  • While some attics are converted into bedrooms or home offices, complete with windows and staircases, most attics remain difficult to access and neglected, and are generally used for storage.
  • Attics can also help control temperature in a house by providing a large mass of slowly moving air. Hot air rising from lower floors of a building often gets retained in the attic, further compounding their reputation as inhospitable environments.
