Before & After: Erik's Empty Attic to Marvelous Master Bedroom Suite

Erik's attic was mostly wasted, unlivable space. But with a thoughtful floor plan and a bit of brightening, he made it into a functional loft-like master bedroom, where the spaces are defined but not closed off.

From Erik:

This was a transformation from a minimally heated, dark, unlivable attic-like space to a bright, modern master suite. The main features include the headboard wall with wall hung sinks on the back side, gas stove, library, skylight, built in bench seat, walk-in closet, and the spacious bathroom.

One of the primary design goals was to keep the space wide open while still offering subtle boundaries and separations between functions. This allowed daylight to filter in from all 4 sides as well as the skylight. The simple palette of white and birch plywood also lends to the bright feel of the space as well as its refreshing minimalism. The main elements of the space were purposefully ordered. The gas stove, bed, reading lights on the headboard, wall-hung sinks and skylight all operate on a centralized axis that brings a clean focus to the room.
