Built in bed

I’ve been considering what to do with the second bedroom in the barn. It will be my son’s room once it’s been relieved of its current duty as store room. I’ve been planning on installing a built-in-bed, both for reasons of practicality and desire. Practical because part of the construction can be used to solve my tricky carpentry challenge and desirable, because the child in all of us would like one.

I didn’t have to look far for inspiration as I favourite site of mine, Remodelista came up with the goods as it so often does – Children’s Rooms: Built-in Beds and Bunks

Here are my favourites – those from which I’ll take some inspiration:

Great lighting, use of natural and painted wood and yet more storage. Those steps are pretty great as well - wonder if I can fit some in?

I like the regularity of this space and the high level book shelf is a great use of space. Lovely looking wood again.
