6. Build a Zen spaceA custom-designed platform bed provides storage where there isn’t space for it in this all-built-in bedroom. This creates a clean, clutter-free room. Soft, natural colours evoke a sense of relaxation and calm.Read more about this room
Sometimes positioning is simply a case of pragmatism. In this studio space, for instance, the sleep zone is open to the main living space. And the only place the bed can go is with the head against the window and the foot towards the door.Regina Chen, the Singaporean designer of this project, says: “The existing apartment had two rooms. The owner preferred to have an en suite design where they can enjoy a larger space, like an executive hotel suite. That was the main reason for us to propose this layout. We tried various designs, such as changing the ways the bed and wardrobe face, but none of the layouts allowed maximum space as the selected scheme does.”Check out brilliant ways to use wasted space in the bedroom
Room at a Glance: Master bedroomWho lives here: A coupleLocation: QueenstownSize: 893 square feet (83 square metres)The master bedroom is a study in lightness and simplicity. Much of the natural light that filters into this space and the adjacent living area comes from this lone window, hence the open concept approach. The false ceiling was raised to expose a structural beam, allowing a gap where light can pass through, as well as become the TV console and open display shelf.Ample storage was the other priority which the design team fulfilled by building a platform bed, full-height wardrobe and bookshelf to utilise every inch of space. The choice of pale wood laminate for the cabinetry enhances the warm and homey atmosphere. As the unit came with the existing off-centre window, the team installed venetian blinds to “balance” the headboard wall.
