Dylan and Marley share a room with very low ceilings that called for a creative solution to ensure that the top bunk offered ample overhead space. We used an L-shaped configuration and placed the lower bunk on a platform, rather than legs - solving both the height issue and leaving room below the top bunk for a dresser that doubles as a nightstand.
The bunk’s stairs double as drawers and rounded cutouts in the bed serve as grips for safe and easy passage up and down. This is a small room, so we designed a hanging desk opposite the bed to maximize both light flow and floor space. The desk is suspended from the wall and is designed for two, each niche featuring a pencil drawer, magnetic panels, shelves above and below the desktop and cutouts to keep cables discreet and floors uncluttered.
A baseboard radiator that spans the length of the wall on which we wanted to install shelving couldn’t stop us from maximizing the room’s shelving space. We mounted the shelving unit to the wall so that it rests above the radiator, keeping precious floor space available for projects and playtime.
