Planning home renovation

This project was to renovate the house of a super happy and relaxed couple. The goal was to achieve the maximum of visual result with the minimum of construction. Of all the spaces, I chose two to tell how the process was.


Joining two children in a relatively small room can be a hard task. The usage of bunk beds or auxiliary beds below are often used as a solution. In this project, we chose to arrange the L-shaped beds, with standard size and with drawers to store toys and optimize space.

Optimizing space

To better take advantage of the space possibilities, it is good to make a dynamic with the furniture that needs to be there. For example, a bed is needed in a bedroom, but what else can it be? A toy storage, a shoe rack, etc. This is a good exercise to optimize space and give it a creative function.

In this bedroom, we did this exercise using the beds to store toys and a wardrobe with blackboard doors for drawing.

Use of wood in children’s bedroom

Wood is known for warming the space with its color, which is widely used to bring visual coziness. Another characteristic of wood is its thermal function, as it insulates the cold, which makes it ideal for floors where you want to walk barefoot and on the walls around the bed to keep the cold away. In this project, we used MDF around the beds for this purpose.


Choosing colors

The color palette of a space must be aligned with its purpose. The room of this project was planned to be the relaxing spot of the house, so the color palette aims to bring warmth and calm to the bedroom. That’s why we chose a woody MDF shade, a blue satin lacquer shade, and a gray MDF shade for the other furniture. As for the walls, we chose a gray linen textured wallpaper.

Light that values

The headboard wall was chosen to be the bedroom highlight, so a woody slatted panel with an embedded LED strip on each size was made there. The LED lighting on the side of the panel made all the difference to emphasize the headboard.
