Upstairs plans

Since the weather is a little to chilly to cut wood outside, we discussed today that we need to keep up the motivation with renovating the upstairs bedroom. Ripping up the carpet seems to be the answer. Oh, fun. We'll be ripping up the carpet in small chunks for about an hour every night. Hopefully by Spring, we'll be ready for the real renovation!

In the meantime, I'm also starting to collect upstairs storage inspiration. Under one of the dormers, we are considering building a storage bench (which means, I have to come up with some solid plans in about two months). The upstairs includes one large space, which will be the master bedroom, and a full bathroom. Since we live in a Cape Cod style house, the upstairs is really just a finished attic space.

Here's some inspiration for the upstairs reno:

(I like the idea of bottom drawers and tall storage on the side)
(I like the depth of the window seat for napping)

(ooo, more napping spots)

  1. Nice idea. Attic rooms can be tricky but this looks like a good plan. I like the first bedroom picture.
