I’ve been thinking a lot about our bedroom since it’s the next major project once we pay off all of our credit card debt from our kitchen remodel. (And we’re almost there!!) The front of our house was built in 1926, and has all the charm to match, but the back part was built on to the house in the 80’s, and well, has the lack of charm to match.
If you need a refresh, this is our current bedroom sitch:
It’s a difficult room, because of the vanity in the room, the tiny closet and that large trap door in the floor that is the only entry point to our cellar. There’s also a wall air-co unit on the opposite side, and a low window across from the vanity, so there is only really one viable place to put our bed. Even trying to figure out how to remodel the space to make it more functional is a real puzzle. We make the bathroom bigger and we run into that trap door or the closet. We could build out into our yard and make the room bigger, but that shrinks our yard and also sounds really expensive. We could knock the wall which leads into Ida’s room and move Ida’s room to the front (our current T.V. room) but that would turn a legal three-bedroom home into a two-bedroom, which doesn’t sound like the smartest move if we ever want to sell the house.
Even still there are many mornings when I wake up and feel like I’m at a weird roadside motel. It’s not just the bedroom either. The ‘master’ bathroom is also problematic–it’s so tiny that when we open the shower door it bumps into the toilet. Not cool. So as we gear up to tackle this wing of the house, of course my mind turns to the decor and thinking more about the furnishing and finishes than about the remodel conundrums.
The mood board I made above is the result of that day dreaming. Wondering if our bedroom will ever feel this blissfully boho!?!
