5 Bedroom Designs Even I Couldn’t Think Up

by | BiggerPockets.com

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?

#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?

  1. I strongly agree.
    The bedrooms are often left as hollow shells compared to the bathrooms and kitchens. We have not sold a house yet but we have designed our personal residence using ambient lighting, floor to ceiling storage, floor length curtains, and art arrangements. All elements work together to maximize space and set a warm inviting atmosphere.
    We have set up several houses for friends as well and have found a lot of inspiration from IKEA. So far the houses that we have done this to are small. Ours is a 3br/1b just under 1000 square feet. Making the house feel bigger than it is can be a fun challenge tho.

    Thanks for the post!

    • Sounds like you do more than most Levi.
      Thanks for sharing those great ideas. Most people think they use small scale items in small spaces when it is the opposite. for instance we put large floor tiles in small spaces which gives the allusion of a larger floor and space. You know this but most think they have to go with a small scale tile. Are you doing staging for others?

      • Levi Pollard on

        We have helped about 4 people stage their houses. We will be staging our house this summer. Hopefully moving to a more vibrant real estate market. I think the way the house is staged goes a long way toward getting what you want out of the house. If the person walks into empty rooms they cant see their dream as well as if they walk in and see their dream set up.

        • You are absolutely right Levi. Especially if the house is small and the same on larger homes because most people don’t have vision so you have to create that for them.
          How do you get your furniture and accessories? Do you own or rent from rent- a-centers or use higher end furniture design stores. We have done it a couple of different ways to hiring a designer to doing it in house.

  2. Lighting and built-ins for me!
    I love that brick. Am waiting for a whole wall someday.
    It has to be somewhat neutral but capture the renter’s imagination. Agreed, there’s no reason creativity should be left in the kitchen.
