Design what you dream about with these clever and creative ideas.
Dream and sleep more soundly in a space that calms and comforts, despite the lack of square inches.
A billowy curtailn artfully separates living and sleeping areas, creating structure in an open layout. Topped with an object, stacks of books and magazines look deliberate, not like home decorating by hoarders.
Closet doors that open out would take up a lot of space. Fabric panels solve that problem-and add a swath of warm color to the room.
Pure and Simple
An abjustable light fixture hung from the ceiling saves precious space on the night table, while the minimal bed frame contributes to the room’s airy feel.
Frame a panel of wallpaper to create the illusion of a headboard without all the bulk-and to give the room some visual punch.
In this studio apartment, a pedestal table is both workstation and nightstand, but when guests come for dinner, it slides easily away from the wall.
Carving Out a Niche
Tucked into a corner or a closet, a bed with a curtain becomes an instant guest room. Pearly or glossy paint brightens the windowless alcove.
Rise and Shine
Bookshelves that hang from the ceiling make use of wasted space, emphasize a room’s height, and free up the wall and floor beneath them.
Up and Up
Bunks are a tried-and-true space saver, and climbing into bed never seemed more inviting. An oversized cushion plopped into a corner creates an easy reading nook.
A nest-like sleeping loft provides a fun perspective and leaves plenty of room below to study, play, and store things.
