Bedroom So Far

It took the fitter five and a half days to fit the wardrobes, it was a long week!  It's going to take just as long to put everything back, deciding what not to put back is hard too.  There has been stuff stored in there for years, so - what's the point of keeping it if it's not used, I'm sure we've all asked ourselves that over the years.

Here are a couple of before and after pictures.  The before ones show the room stripped out and ready for fitting....
Then the same view as it is now...

At the opposite end of the room..............
And now..........
Because of the way the room is now designed it feels a lot bigger.  Before it was very mismatched with odd pieces of furniture that just never looked tidy.  We've still got the decorating to do, that will probably take another week and then we'll probably have a carpet fitted, the wood floor got quite scratched and dented so a carpet will just finish the room off nicely.  By the end of March it should be completely finished.

Hi Ann, no matter how much space you have you will fill it,I think it is a scientific fact!The room does look very bright and airy with nice space now.

The cabinetry is beautiful, the bed is perfect where it is now! Oh, but putting everything back and recycling what is no longer used can be so time consuming! Hope it's soon done so you can enjoy your lovely room. Look forward to seeing the finished room!
