Three Oaks Vacation Home
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Enhance your loftIf you’re converting a loft space and had written off the idea of making good use of sloping eaves for anything other than, potentially, storage, perhaps this idea will spark your imagination.While the low headspace might not make this design suitable for either full-time sleeping or for full-size people (at least up top), it’s a smart way to squeeze in an extra bed for a child or a guest bed without losing floor space. Rather than spoiling the architectural lines of the internal roof, as you might imagine this kind of construction would, the bunks in fact highlight them, turning the view into a focal point. And it looks like it would be a pretty cosy place to sleep. Building a little way out from the end of the alcove, as seen here, allows both beds to be a little roomier. Keeping the colour of the bunks the same as the wall colour – and making all of it pale – also magnifies this effect visually.
