Long Bedroom Blues
(Ferntree Gully, Vic, Australia)
Current Master Bedroom
We are renovating the bedroom / ensuite & bathroom. Just coming up with a design is hard work. I can really appreciate the work designers do now.
We have plenty of space in the master bedroom, but it's hard to fit anything in due to the shape, and position of windows and doors.
See attached pic.
Door is located at the end of a hallway (bottom right on pic). At the left side of the bedroom we have a great view we want to make the most of. Currently there is a door + window using half the space, but we are thinking about opening it up and have a sliding door / window across the whole wall with access to the balcony.
We have a door to the ensuite in top right of the pic, so we can't really put a walk in / wardrobe there, and if it went on the other side it would partially block the view. If the only option is to have a wardrobe on the left, we'll just have to go with a smaller sliding door / window.
In an ideal world, we would have a walk in wardrobe on the way to the ensuite. My concern with that is it'll be the first thing you walk into when you enter the room, and depending on how close to the bedroom it comes, it may be difficult getting furniture in.
I've tried to draw some options that I thought of. Not really drawn to scale. I do like the idea of having drawers behind the bed, as we can cut into the other side to use as a ledge, as there's no room for side tables.
If space permits, I'll have a chair in the corner where the window is to sit and enjoy the view.
Please let me know of any suggestions. - Andrew
Long, narrow rooms with multiple doors and windows are definitely a challenge. They're also loaded with opportunity for charm and ambiance, particularly since you have spectacular views. I've posted a solution for you at Long Bedroom Blues Solution
