Our customer's brief
Maximise our space with multi-purpose designs
Busy couple, Mr & Mrs Hudson, longed for the chance to work from home more often but felt they needed a room that could be dedicated to their business and be quite separate from their family life. However, no spare rooms were available and they had no wish to move from their beloved home. They approached us to see if we could create a stylish solution to their quandary.
"Sometimes we even forget that there is a bed hidden behind the beautifully finished panels"
Transforming a guest bedroom
Our designer visited Mr and Mrs Hudson at their home and an answer to their predicament quickly became apparent. A guest bedroom was chosen and transformed into a multi-functional space with a clever wall bed feature to accommodate overnight guests.
A sleek contemporary finish
The rest of their home was decorated in an on trend style, so Strachan wanted to keep the guest bedroom consistent with their tastes. After showing our complete collection of wooden and coloured finishes, they decided on a beautiful high gloss cream. Set against the deepness of the wood grain finish, it created a beautiful contrast that stays true to their modern home.
Mixing office and bedroom designs
As the room was being used as both a workspace and a relaxing room for overnight guests, it was important to incorporate the right blend of furniture pieces. To achieve this, we created an open shelving space, which housed reading materials as well as a TV set and DVD collection.
Curved corner desk
Home office space
Faced with limited space for a work desk, Strachan decided to install a curved one in the corner of the room. This not only meant that there was a dedicated work place, along with cleverly integrated storage for technology, but it also allowed enough floor space to accommodate the full wall bed when pulled down.
A bed for the night
Comfort and convenience
The standout feature of the room is the convertible wall bed, which allows Mr and Mrs Hudson to transform the room in a matter of seconds. Complete with a soft, inviting mattress, the bed completely disappears into the carcase of the cupboard when not in use.
