Incorporate a bed into a dormer window space

Tuck in a Built-in Bed

The big idea: Pack comfort into a pint-size space by nestling a built-in bed into a dormer window. Even small corners and recesses hold big potential. Rather than planning a costly addition, consider turning awkward spaces into niches for work or sleep.

Notice the details: Bright and cheerful aqua paint alerts all eyes to the craftsmanship of this built-in. Curtains invite midday naps, and six lower drawers maximize storage. An extra touch, the swing-arm sconce, allows for bedtime stories before a good night's sleep.
