What Houzz contributors are saying:
2. Line walls with low-level cabinets. With loft conversions, letting in enough light is crucial. In many cases, that means skylights galore, but this can reduce your storage options. All is not lost, however. Make full use of the bottom section of the wall with long, lean, low-slung units, like these, that stretch the length of the room. This can be a fairly cost-effective solution, too, as you can join up lots of compact, off-the-shelf units rather than having to go custom.
The couple has two children who inhabit the top of the castle, each taking up half of the floor. “Previously the attic had been completely disused and was full of water tanks, moths and dead birds,” says Maxwell. The architects worked with interior designer Rona Douglas. In this bedroom they went for a nautical theme, seen in the red and white stripes on the wall fabric, and in the blinds and cushions that feature flags on one side and pennants on the other.
