Keep a wall base to sand and varnish in light oak to create a decorative headboard effect about 1m high Light tip: On the head wall, attach a window effect mirror in the center so that it reflects the light from the roof window and gives an impression of openness to the outside. Add another desk-side mirror to enlarge the space. ** Optimize the space in the bedroom ** - Stage the head wall (the one you see when entering) by placing your daughter's current bed in it to transform it into a bench. You can sand it to paint it white. - Accentuate the idea of ​​bench seat and horizontality by having on both sides 2 beautiful wicker trunks for decorative and practical storage - Arrange beautiful cushions for maximum comfort - Space tip: Ideally change the sense of opening the entrance door to the bedroom so that it opens towards the room and not towards the cupboards. ** Visually lighten up the space with hidden storage ** - Keep your current cupboards under the crawlboards, but hide them behind linen-colored curtains for more softness and consistency.
