Bedroom Niche contemporary-bedroom

Bedroom Niche

Challenged with an odd shaped bedroom in our 1800's antique home, we created a built-in sleeping niche with storage underneath - providing additional room for a desk and seating area. Walls were done in a neutral BM Silver Fox - with red accents and nautical accessories. Pillows were made by Jamieson Interiors.

The bed is full size - and it was pure luck that it fit exactly into that space ...

Oh, I see! So the drawers do pull out from the wide side and NOT the foot of the bed. Won't work for us since our space is so narrow. But thank you so much for the response!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lily Gahagan added this to Oriental Rugs Beyond the Living Room
Light walls open up this small guest bedroom, while the rug grounds the space and sets the color palette.
Embrace the space. Slanted ceilings have their charm. Here the low angle creates a nook that feels cozy and all to yourself — just try doing the same thing in a vaulted room.
Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to Great Space Saver: Bedroom Storage You Can Sleep On
This bedroom faced a challenge similar to the one our nursery/guest room space faced: It's an odd shape and there is only one real spot for a bed. The bed's built-in storage drawers freed up space for the homeowners to create a desk and seating area.
Amy Renea added this to How to Create a Nest at Home
Nests can be tiny.Notice this classic nest-like space that is confined on three sides (two walls and ceiling) with a vista through the window and across the room.
