4 Basement Bedroom Beauties

Whether you have a bedroom in a basement apartment or in the basement of your house, they're spaces that definitely have their challenges. We're not sure one can completely overcome the issues of light, ceiling height, etc., but these inspiring basement bedrooms come close:

  • Who says the bedroom has to be enclosed? We love this bed alcove in a basement that's open to light streaming in from upstairs.
  • This basement bedroom was made over to make it more attractive to prospective homebuyers.
  • Somehow this dated paneling and dingy mattress look appealing in this photograph!
  • This light and serene bedroom hardly appears to be in a abasement at all.

I think the main lesson learned here is to obscure the source of the light. Don't let it be 100% apparent that light is coming in through tiny high windows. Instead, let it come in indirectly, whether down a stair or through a sheer, full-height curtain. What do you think?
