Before and After: This Bedroom Has a Smart Strategy for Wall-to-Wall Carpet
This bedroom was described as “so sad… but there is so much potential,” and one intrepid DIYer brought out all that and so much more. The stars of the new bedroom are a stunning accent wall made from ordinary board and batten, and some seriously cool rustic wood sliding closet doors.
This makeover was completed by Angela of Angela Rose Home, and though Angela refers to it as The Boy’s Room (it belongs to a son), it’s beautifully gender neutral. It’s full of gorgeous woods, weaves, and textiles, and the neutral color palette is elegant yet warm. The minimal style means that pillows, art, and throw blanket could easily be swapped out for more colorful versions if desired in the future.
The dark textured wall is a real showpiece, both because of its dynamic design and its lush green-black paint. There are helpful videos on @angelarosehome on Instagram so the look can totally be yours.
Wall-to-wall carpet covers the entire expanse of the room, and though it can sometimes be cropped out of photos, it can’t be ignored in the real life. In this room, neutral tones and that rich green work beautifully with the taupe carpet, while its low shag texture goes well with the baskets and fringes in natural hues. On another level, an accent wall definitely commands the majority of the attention, drawing the eye away from the carpet, if that’s ever a goal.
This closet door is so clever: Angela covered up the standard gold-bordered mirrored sliding door with strips of plywood, then added a barn door handle. While mirrored doors can be amazing for reflecting light and adding a feeling of spaciousness, some of them are cheesy and low-quality, like a funhouse mirror with a faux-metal frame. If you have $15 and want to give your sliding doors this modern barn door look, Angela Rose Home has a tutorial just for you. The door handle is from SMARTSTANDARD on Amazon, as is the sliding rail hardware.
Thank you, Angela of Angela Rose Home!
