Zen Bedroom

Oversized furniture dominates this couple's master bedroom, and the result is a cramped and uninviting space. These homeowners want a relaxing space that's calming after a hectic workday. The full-sized bed is replaced with a queen-sized platform bed faced with plank flooring. The planks are carried up the wall and onto the vaulted ceiling to make the headboard the focal point of the room. The unused window seat is ripped out to provide additional square footage. Dated shag carpet is replaced with soothing stone tiles for a zen-like feel. A TV is mounted on the wall and flanked with protruding niche boxes, and a console is built for TV components. Finally, the double-door entry is reduced to a single door and the bathroom door is replaced with opaque glass for a sleeker look.
