Custom Made Beds
11th November 2014
The sky's the limit - or should we say the ceiling anyway! One of the key things we've found is that vertical space is quite often forgotten about or ignored, meaning that bedroom furniture designs are based more on floor area rather than overall room capacity.
If you're thinking about a design for a particularly tight bedroom space, it makes good sense to use the height of the room wherever possible. A great way of doing this is to actually elevate the bed, and create a practical storage space underneath it. Whilst some adults might not like this elevated position, kids tend to love it (providing the necessary safety precautions are taken into consideration), so it's a great idea to make kids rooms more fun too.
The space gained underneath the bed can then be used to provide additional cupboard or drawer space, and even a little office area for the kids' computer or television, or just a quiet space for doing homework.
In a bedroom where the height can't be used to this same extent, there are many possibilities to squeeze a little extra storage out of a space without making the room look too dark and cramped.
By creating a bespoke bed, rather than a freestanding option, the overall size and shape can be made to suit the size of the room, its layout, and to match the decor of other fitted furniture within the room. Storage compartments, such as drawers or cupboards can then be fitted underneath which helps to hide away items in a more accessible manner whilst optimising your storage, we've even designed integrated side tables that come out from under the bed, meaning they can be tucked away when not needed to allow for more floor space at other times of the day.
It is said that we spend one third of our lives asleep!! If this statement is true, then what better reason to really design the perfect bed to make sure you are really comfortable for that third of your life!
