Before / After Case Study:
( Move mouse over picture for after )
This space was turned into a bedroom when the owner’s dog became too weak to get up the stairs to the master’s bedroom. After having slept at the end of her bed all of its life, the owner felt that she needed to move her bed downstairs to be with her beloved companion.
This den was a makeshift bedroom until I redesigned the space and repositioned the furniture. Moving the bed into a semi-secluded nook, and adding a partition for a headboard and another to add privacy created a private bedroom. We also brought in dresser drawers from upstairs.
We began by purging excess books and collectibles. Some were donated to charity and memories were placed into plastic storage bins. We kept the built-in shelves intact in case the house is sold. They served as handy side shelves to surround the bed with favorite books.
