When you are designing your child’s room it is always fun for them to be involved and get to help pick out different things like the color of paint for the walls. Have you ever thought about the wasted space you have that could be turned into a little hide-a-way for your son or daughter? It does not have to be real big but to them it will be their own private space and they will spend a lot of time there playing and escaping into there on little world. Now you say where I am going to come up with this space without cutting down on the size of their bedroom. Your room decorating ideas may include ceilings that are taller than eight foot and if they do this project will work perfectly. Here is what you will need to do.
If your ceilings are at least ten foot tall when you build your closet have your builder leave and opening to the otherwise lost space above the closet.The inside will have to be finished out but just roughly not perfect. Now you can decide if you want the opening inside the closet or to enter from the outside. Frame out the opening with a little bit of trim molding to give it a finished look and a little ladder attached to the wall and guess what, your child now has his own perfect private hide-a-way.
This hide-a-way project is for those of you who have eight foot ceilings. This kids room decorating idea will take a little more planing but it will work. While your builder is building your house have him include a little space in the attic to finish out above your child’s bedroom. Once again it does not have to be very big for a child to really enjoy. Have them finish out the opening with some trim molding for a finished look or if you wish you can trim it out yourself to save some money. Cutting the crown molding angles is the hardest part but you can do it with a little practice. Get some of the scrape pieces and practice cutting your angles.Now all you need to do is build them a little ladder to get into their hide-a-way and they will be all set for a fun time in their new bedroom.
If you do not feel safe with a ladder built up the wall you may want to consider putting your opening at one end of the room and adding a small staircase up the side of the wall.
