Slanted ceiling help

Jennifer EdmistonDecember 29, 2012
I am redoing my daughters bedroom and am looking for a creative way to use this space. We are doing a country/ horse theme.

You could have built a chest of drawers on one side and a bookcase on the outside end:
Master Bedroom · More Info
and
Bedroom built-ins · More Info
.

I love this idea, a bed in a drawer:
Whidbey Island Home & Guest House · More Info
. It would free up floor space in the day time for other uses.

Have fun and good luck!

Those are great ideas but the ceiling is very low.

How deep is that nook? Was just visualizing all shelves for displaying/or some sort of display unit...hard to put drawers or dresser due to banging your head all the time.

A few more pics showing the rest of the room including windows, doors, closets would help. Also, how old is daughter since teens need storage space, younger kids need sleepover and play space.

Just love little nooks like this. I like the pictures above. Hire a carpenter to do built ins and he will have good ideas as well.

She is 12. Wondering how to make it cozy without being too claustrophobic . She has told me she does not like small spaces. Thank you all for helping

Can you do a skylight or two? That opens up space by adding light. Do not put it(them) over bed (s) b/c the raindrops will truly be falling on your head. We have our bed under our huge skylight and I always know when the rain starts. Not so much fun as it sounds. Another thought: Remember those old Dutch bed- in- a- cabinet paintings? Build the cabinets around the bed with the head at the highest spot. A 12 y/o would be glad to be able to shut out the world by closing some cabinet doors. She'd never have to make the bed or hang up her clothes. Just close the cabinet door.

For the deep nook, how about a shelf with some cute baskets to go both on the shelf and on the floor under it? It would be good for storage of lesser used items.
