Bedroom dilemma
Richie Ruby
July 1, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are renovating our newly bought house, and have a number of dilemmas :)
This is our master bedroom. It is 30 metres squared room but with sloped/vaulted ceiling. We are thinking of dividing the room to include a closet.
We need to change flooring too.

Our main dilemma is should we divide the room or a large bedroom is more favourable? Also, should we removed the wood panelled ceiling?

Appreciate any inputs. thank you

If you put a floor plan here, with dimensions (can be a simple drawing, doesn't have to be to scale), it will be easier for people to give you more definite ideas :-)

I agree with carolins about a floor plan sketch. As far as the ceiling, I would not remove it, but I would definitely paint it out, it looks so dark and cavernous the way it is right now.

It's a pretty large bedroom and people like the idea of walk-in closets, so you could place the bed towards the double window at the end of the room, headboard against the left wall and have a double row of wardrobes coming off the wall between the two roof lights up to about where the door is.
I made a sloppy sketch for you. Under the window I drew a make-up area with drawers underneath part of it. At least, that is the idea :-)

I'm not a pro, so these are just my thoughts:

It seems like the built-ins and the slope may make it hard to place one- I also see a radiator and a vent. If you put the closet between the vent and the bed the room may feel chilly if you are in a cold climate. Are you removing the built-ins?

Hmm... yes, suddenly realized that the roof window is about 1 meter wide, which will be too tight for the make-up area. Wardrobes can be made to measure to follow the line of the roof. But it is a difficult space.

Thank you for your comments.
Kelly the built ins will be removed completely.
Carolins thank you for the sketch. It is a difficult place and proving to be a lot more problematic :)... closet / wardrobes will be made to measure.

Is there room then to put the new closet along that wall? I can't tell without measurements. Make a hallway along that entire wall with a doorway at one end- I think the closet would have to be a minimum of 54" deep or 138 cm- but that is tight. It gives you 18"/46 cm for hanging, 12"/ 30 cm for shelves and then a 24"/60 cm walkway. Not sure if you have that type of room. Hopefully these pictures will help you see the idea.

Thank you. It is only 1 metre wide and 5.6 metres deep if we had to put up a wall, which I think the width is quite small. There is no room to move the door, as there is the chimney. We were thinking of leaving the bed ( a new one) as is, with the television built in a gypsum unit between the two windows. Technically hiding the slope between the windows too. And built a wall across, for a closet with a window (double window). This closet will measure 4.25 * 2.2 metres with built in.

This was my thought, without actual dimensions though it is a guess.

I'm still thinking... something is forming in my brain, but I have to see if it will work and find you some visuals to explain.

Okay, a much simpler idea (drawing not to scale):
- all the current wardrobe space moved towards the front of the room, left wall
- bed at the back of the room
- room for one or two chairs with small table on the roof window side
- wardrobes with (glass) sliding doors

I do think that a different colour scheme will make the biggest difference in your room.
