Sloped ceilings and awkward corners don't mean you have to compromise on style in your home. We asked the experts for their advice.
You may think that a sloped ceiling bedroom doesn’t offer much room for storage or isn’t suitable for built-in wardrobes but you’d be surprised. Sloped ceiling bedrooms may look small, but with the right décor and furniture, you can turn any room into a well-ordered retreat.
Here are Sliderobes’ top tips to make the most of your sloped ceiling bedroom.
Open up the space in your room by using bright colours. By sticking to a neutral wall colour, you can give the room a spacious and airy feel. Neutral walls don’t have to be boring! Introduce a second colour or feature wall to add some visual excitement. The 2019 Colour of the Year is coral, so why not add a colourful throw or cushion to your bed. Adding layers and texture to your bed will add depth to the room, as well as show off your personality.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Hanging mirrors will lighten and brighten a bedroom with sloped ceilings. Mirror and glass furniture will make the space feel bigger and will enhance natural light. Mirrored doors on built-in wardrobes will not only create the illusion of more space but are also very practical.
Let there be light
Don’t forget about your lighting. Lighting a sloped ceiling bedroom doesn’t have to be complicated. If your slope is not in the centre of the room, use a ceiling hook to hang a stylish pendant feature light in the right place. If you don’t want to take up space with a hanging light, wall lights are a great option. Pick up accent colours with the addition of textured bedside lampshades.
Turn an awkward space into a beautiful feature with fitted furniture. Maximise your storage space with a stylish yet practical built-in wardrobe. Add rails, drawers and shelving in order to make the most of the space and create a beautiful storage solution. Built-in wardrobes will utilise every inch of space and make sure nothing is wasted – even around corners. You can create a place for everything with everything in its place. It’s also a clever way to hide sloped ceilings with beautiful bespoke furniture.
Tricky spaces don’t have to be wasted. Use an alcove to create a beautiful reading nook, or add multipurpose furniture such as a sofa bed to make the most of the space. Turn these awkward spaces into useful, practical features by adding built-in furniture that is tailored to the room. Whether it’s sloped ceilings, alcoves or a chimney breast to hide, Sliderobes can design beautiful storage and wardrobes around these awkward areas.
