You can convert your attic in a walk in closet when there is no enough space in your bedroom or basement for storing all the accessories, shoes, apparels, and clothes you have. Not to mention, we all have a big baggage of winter apparels, cardigans, and vests that cannot be stored away easily. Leather jackets are quite expensive too, they must not be put way in boxes for long time otherwise their colors fade away.
Most old style homes are built with attic room which is usually used for storing old household accessories and equipment which are no longer needed in home.
