Designers James, Kara and Kyal revamp two outdated bedrooms to suit the fast-growing-up occupants.
Three designers from The Living Room go to work on two outdated kids’ bedrooms – and everyone’s thrilled with the results!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.
