Creating Restful Spaces: Bedrooms

 This bedroom was very difficult to use and the client rarely slept in it.

This bedroom was very difficult to use and the client rarely slept in it.

This client was a very busy producer who spent little time at home. She struggled to create organised systems of order for her belongings. This room was a challenge as there is a non-pictured wardrobe that was literally full of clothes and shoes. 

The client was not on hand to assist with sorting this room, which added to the challenge. My aim for the room was to sort all of her belongings into groups and fit in her limited cupboard space. Due to the amount of clothing she owned, it was necessary to put a lot of her non-season (i.e. winter) clothes into storage. 

 Several hours later, the room is much more in control. The placement of the dresser is not ideal. Unfortunately, the bed took up so much space that it restricted the room greatly.

Bedroom Two: unused storage space

 The second bedroom of the apartment was used entirely for storage.

The client used the second bedroom of the apartment and the hallway as a storage room. When she had moved into the apartment all of the boxes had been put in the bedroom and gradually been added to. 

 Due to the apartment size being small and lacking in storage, her 'storage' items had to stay in the second bedroom.

A lot of the items that had been stored in the bedroom went to her garage to be picked up by charities or rubbish collectors. She assured me that once the garage had been emptied she was going to move the storage items down and set up the second bedroom as a guest room.
