Design Tip No. 2: Wall treatments go a long way in adding character.
When remodeling, it’s tempting to think about walls in terms of paint only, but we love to consider incorporating treatments for an added dimension where we can. Whether it’s paneling or interesting ceiling details, wall treatments can elevate your space and bring character like nothing else.
In this space, we paneled the walls and removed the original tray ceiling’s trim edges to add wooden beams and carry the drywall in between for a cleaner, more modern look.
Wall treatment placement tip: Trying to align the paneling with the furniture while still making the paneling even throughout each wall can be difficult. Sometimes things will look different on paper than in reality, so we have to be resourceful and develop solutions on the spot.
In the end, we were able to align the bed within a paneling section, which was the most important wall. However, we decided to center the mirror and dresser within the overall wall space to accommodate the door swing and keep the dresser centered within the room.

Design Tip No. 3: Creating unexpected seating areas brings warmth and function.
We love adding extra seating in a bedroom where we can, whether it’s through a bench, a chair in the corner, or even a sofa. While you may not think you could fit a sofa in your bedroom, you might be surprised!
Our clients had a single lounge chair by their window, and we were able to switch it out for a small two-seater settee under their window to bring them more seating options. Adding the sofa created a whole new purpose for that corner of their room, creating a space where their family can relax and have time together.
