Before: Bedroom Without Balance
The master bedroom was a victim of the irregular layout and multiple ceiling angles.
After: Warm Modernity
To balance the irregular layout and uneven ceiling, designer Andreas Charalambous designs bookcases and a built-in desk in sycamore to create a consistent look throughout the bedroom. To disguise the varying ceiling heights, he creates a canopy bed in the same sycamore paneling.
Before: Outdated Furnishings
Dark, clunky furniture weigh down the room, making the space seem smaller and cluttered.
After: Sleek, Contemporary Style
The base of the platform bed gives the illusion of a bed suspended in space. Other elements, like the floating nightstand and glass shelving, add an airy and streamlined quality to the room, which also makes the space seem larger.
Before: Lack of Storage
Dark, outdated dressers don't provide enough storage and leave the space feeling cluttered.
After: Streamlined Storage Solution
Built-in cabinetry allows for plenty of storage space, giving the room a clean, modernized style. Accents of fiery orange add warmth to the sleek, neutral bedroom.
Before: Lifeless Entry
The entry into the master bedroom was uninspiring and outdated.
After: Welcoming and Stylish Entry
Dark hardwood floors ground the space without competing with the light sycamore paneling that fills the room. A contemporary chair makes use of the window nook and adds fun and interest to the space.
Before: Too Small Dressing Room
The dressing area was a tiny hallway on the way to the master bathroom.
After: Stunning Dressing Room
For the dressing area of the bedroom, Charalambous decided that the master bedroom could lose two feet in order to add an additional row of closets, which now allows for a mirrored niche with a seat for getting dressed. The existing closets are lined with floor-to-ceiling mirrors to make the space seem twice as big.
