** Clear the space visually ** A multitude of photos and an accumulation of posters tend to stifle the space. Prefer 2 or 3 beautiful photos to frame and place above the desk. ** Create an office space ** In front of the bed, create a light and airy office space while being practical. Top it with a white shelf for beautiful photos. ** Create new storage ** Have 3 bookcases that you can decorate with drawers and / or baskets to create decorative and practical storage.
** Some planning advice for the bedroom space ** The problems you mention: insulation problems, lack of light, lack of electrical outlets would require a heavier renovation of your daughter's room and therefore a greater financial investment heavy with: - A recovery of the electrical circuit, (minimum 2 sockets per wall), - Thermal insulation (with possibly a thin insulation to avoid losing height) - A change of the roof window for a window with more dimensions generous, thermally reinforced As part of a larger work project, your idea of recovering the passageway for the bedroom space is very interesting. This would create an alcove effect for installing your daughter's desk and thereby increasing the space in the bedroom.
