Three de­sign­ers from The Liv­ing Room go to work on two out­dated kids’ bed­rooms – and ev­ery­one’s thrilled with the re­sults!

AS KIDS BE­COME TEENAGERS, their bed­rooms should evolve – but Court­ney and Ja­cob’s rooms were a few years be­hind. The chal­lenge was to de­sign rooms that would re­flect the teens’ per­son­al­i­ties and func­tion as en­joy­able learn­ing and play spa­ces, plus ful­fil mum In­grid’s re­quest for more stor­age.

For pas­sion­ate gamer Ja­cob, a gam­ing set-up that could in­clude friends was a must. So James de­signed a gamer’s par­adise, turn­ing a Bun­nings flat­pack fil­ing cab­i­net into a bed­side ta­ble gamer’s caddy, with cooler drawer, cupholder and old con­sole con­trollers as han­dles. A wide nar­row ta­ble has room for a cou­ple of mon­i­tors and chairs, while wall-mounted stor­age takes care of equip­ment.

Kara and Kyal re­tained the lay­out of Court­ney’s room but in­stalled Bun­nings cube stor­age on the wall above the new queen bed. The cus­tom-made peg­board with flex­i­ble drop­down desk is painted in pas­tel colours to match the new linen, soft­en­ing the room and mak­ing an in­spir­ing and cre­ative space.
