Need a way to break up the excess space in a room, but desire a more unique approach than freestanding dividers? Building out a hideaway room allows for a more cozy public space while creating a fun private space just for you!
1.What is the floor plan of the room? Are there closets or small walls that indent into the dominant shape of the
room that you can take advantage of?
2. How many windows are in the room? Natural light makes a space feel larger and generally more comfortable, if you want your private space to be a dark hideaway this is not an issue, but generally a window or skylight could do wonders.
3. How do you want to use each space? Perhaps you work from home and need a private nook free of distractions where you can put a desk and store your office supplies. If this is the case think about your workflow and what you will need.
4. Finally think about what you will use your new public space for, perhaps a game room for the family? Considering the uses for each room, the needed lighting and shape will help you figure out the functionality of each space.
Now you’re ready to DIY it or hire some help and turn a large awkward space into a heavenly hideaway!
