Go soft on storage, choose a corner and use it to create a budget wardrobe and dressing area. Take a cue from clothing boutiques and opt for a walk-in arrangement made from a hanging rail and curtains – a casual, purse-friendly alternative to a wooden wardrobe. Choose sheer curtains in a single-tone pattern and hang from a slender track. Bring in a floor-standing clothes rail to store all those pretty dresses and snazzy suits.
The first step was to declutter, which created more space. ‘I went around the room deciding what was no longer needed and what could be sold or recycled. I sold many items on Gumtree, Facebook and eBay, which boosted our budget! They then made sure that everything had its place, in order to keep the space calm long term. This shelving unit not only helps to organise the bedroom, but its light profile means that, despite its size, it does not encroach on the rest of the space. ‘It’s great for our art books and other bits and pieces, while the white storage boxes add uniformity,’ say the couple.
The unloved bedroom was given a new lease of life when an interiors company asked if the couple wanted to test out a revolutionary new product – British Gypsum’s Thistle Magnetic Plaster. ‘I was spurred on to start a full makeover,’ says one of the pair. ‘In the end I decided to use the magnetic plaster on the wall behind our bed so that I can change pictures regularly without having to drill and fill in holes.’ Before that, though, they had to decide how they wanted the rest of the room to look.
