Before & after- Industrial Bedroom Design

One of the things I enjoy the most about being an interior designer is the transformation- how a space changes dramatically. This is the ‘big reveal’ moment for both myself and the clients. Sometimes, when a project takes a bit of time, it’s easy to forget how the space looked like before, and that’s why I always try to take the pictures ‘before’ we start any redesign. Since I’ve recently completed redesign of two teenage bedrooms, turning them into really cool spaces with that very much sought-after industrial feel, I’d like to share with you how the spaces looked like before.

This is how one of the bedrooms looked like before; we kept the wardrobe and the bed, but we breathed in some life into them, and added a lovely bedside table and a desk. We also changed the light fittings, and some superhero artwork which served as a concept for the redesign was introduced.

This window niche used to serve, well, no purpose…so I thought it would be great to create a reading nook, something comfortable and cozy, but equally something which looked ‘cool’. We decided to go for palette seating on wheels, so it’s easy to move them when you vacuum.

Bedroom number 2 is much smaller, so we had to be very careful when planning the space and accommodate everything that is needed: a bed, a wardrobe, a desk, and of course, since it also has a window niche, we decided to go for the same solution, but we dressed it differently, to match the colours to a ‘ironman’ artwork.

We also kept the existing bed, but repainted it to match the new scheme.

Last, but not least was the landing; we managed to turn it into a pretty well-organised reading nook.

Overall, I think this transformation has been a huge success, and most importantly, the space can be now fully enjoyed.
