The great folks I flip houses with understand that I’m a bit of a dreamer. When I walk through a house before renovations begin, I like to envision what the finished product is going to look like.
Most of my creative juices get used up in the design of the kitchen and bathroom. I will be the first to admit that the bedrooms are sometimes overlooked. In many instances a bedroom is just another plain old room with a door, closet and a window or two.
And I feel that’s just not fair…
So today I wanted to share with you 5 bedroom designs that blew my socks off. These designs are breathtaking, creative and one of a kind – especially #5 which I can’t stop looking at.
How do you feel you could incorporate a feature of these bedroom designs into your next renovation?
Let me know by leaving a comment below!
#1 | Island Bedroom, France
Takeaway – I may not be able to pull off an “open to the elements” bedroom design like this one here in chilly New England, but I can certainly utilize the theme to help create a charming, ocean side feeling to any houses I flip along the New England coastline.
#2 | Underwater Bedroom, Maldives
Takeaway – This bedroom is the epitome of allowing in nature. We can create a similar (and much simpler!) effect by creatively using windows that fill the room with natural light. Nobody wants to sleep in a dark little nook.
#3 | Holy Closet, Farnham Royal
Takeaway – People have a lot of “stuff” here in the United States and they want some place nice to put it. Floor-to-ceiling glass fronted showcases solely for shoes may not be in my budget, but I never underestimate the importance of good closet space.
#4 | The Power Of Brick
Takeway – Instead of tearing it down, how could you take advantage of character that is already present in the house, like an old brick wall?
#5 | What A View, Hamilton Island
Takeaway – It doesn’t get much better than waking up to a view like the one in the above photo. Lets face it, most of the houses we flip are not going to have incredible views. Nevertheless, I feel it’s important to look at the landscape around the house-how can you make the most of the view you do have?
