Upon first look, its hard to see the hidden potential in a space but with a little imagine we turned this oversize bedroom into a cozy master suite.
A master bedroom is a place of rest and relaxation, a haven from the outside world. We knew to elevate the look and feel of this master bedroom, we would need to raised ceiling and expose original beams to create a stunning oasis.
This type of remodel adds character and style to a home, and can create a unique, rustic feel that is both cozy and elegant. Here's how we did it in ours.
We consult with our contractor to ensure that the structural changes were feasible and safe. Thankfully they were and we were able to raise the ceiling two and half feet AND expose the 1925 wood beams.
Naturally we ripped out the carpet and refinished the 1925s wood flooring. The flooring was unfortunately pretty beat up, but with a darker stain we created a modern flare on the original pieces.
Anytime you expose natural elements it can create a rustic vibe, so choosing finished need to lean on the modern side to give it a cohesive and stylish look.
We painted the walls Natural White from PPG its described as a soft pottery finish. This really warmed up the room while enhancing the natural light of the room. This was a must as the room only has two small windows, that cost wise we were not making larger.
The original room had two very small closets, we removed one and opened the space up for a cozy reading nook. It made the room feel so much bigger and more visually appealing by removing a door. Four doors in one room is just too many!
This whole process took us months to complete, but it was absolutely worth the wait. Here are the real estate images and the rooms current state.
In spaces like this you would ideally want a four poster bed, but neither my husband nor I wanted one so we added wall paneling that helped to give it the height and add a touch of color to the space.
