A traditional touch gets a contemporary update: The movable ladder attached to these otherwise basic bookshelves is as functional -- allowing the homeowners to reach items up high -- as it is attractive. Adding plants and unique accessories along with the books arranged in varying ways feels personal and adds additional elements of interest.
So many elements of this bunk room design are just awesome. The wavy wallpaper on the back wall is really fun and gives the room an underwater effect. Rope ladders provide access to upper bunks; the turquoise rope coordinates perfectly with the wallpaper and oak steps were custom fabricated. For storage, closets are on either side of the room, both with blue sliding barn doors with black hardware. The pendant light is made from pieces of plastic that attach to a frame, so it’s durable in case of kid mishap, but also resonates with the watery feel.
LED light-paneled walls in this two-story walk-in closet light floor-to-ceiling shelves that show off an extensive collection of shoes and handbags. A sliding wood ladder allows access to high shelves and cabinets.
Throughout the Noho Loft's design, the homeowners needed a way to make their small spaces look larger and feel more functional, so designers had custom fabricated steel doors and sliding paneling made to help with this. Since many of the doors are not fixed, they allow the homeowners to customize their space to fit their needs at the moment, and because the doors slide rather than swing, they take up less room in the design so the home has more functional floor space.
Custom closet rods feature LED lights that make it easy to view and organize hanging clothes in this masculine closet. Small lights illuminate a shelf that holds a collection of baseball caps while a metal ladder on a sliding rail allows easy access to higher cabinets and shelves.
The combination of dark wood cabinets and stainless steel create a kitchen with masculine style. An exposed metal duct pipe, industrial track lighting and a ladder on sliding rails emphasize the unexpected, a signature attribute of eclectic design.
This spacious bedroom features loads of fun architectural details, including a window seat, sliding barn door and a loft accessed by a built-in ladder. Slate blue accents give the space a nautical vibe that connects to the Newport Beach, California, waterfront locale. A comfy seating area makes maximum use of the room's large footprint.
