A lot of timesÂ when I venture in to older homes, mostly those built between theÂ 1920s to the 1950s I see these akward dormers in the bedrooms that could potentially be a waste of space.Â A lot of times they will have tiny closets fitted on either side of the window. Closets that are not really functional.
I recently viewed a house for sale in Southern Pines, NCÂ with small bedrooms upstairs where one would want to maximize every bit of space. I thought of thisÂ idea I saw in Better Homes & Garden. The home owner cleverly fashioned a work area out their dormer. This space could also be usedÂ a vanity area. Looks like a pretty simple setup, something that could be for the most part purchased at a Home Depot or Lowes. If you’re not handy you might need a carpenter to build the bench seat which could also beÂ opened and used for additional storage or you could always use a chair.
