What Houzz contributors are saying:
Flush-fit in alcovesIn a contemporary-style space, it makes sense to flatten out and exploit the room’s architectural angles – namely, alcoves. Here, the materials used for the cupboards and chimney breast match the bed to create a discreet, fitted finish. The success of the alcove cupboards is the symmetry and flush-fitting – the deep wood grain is a texture-adding bonus.
Tidy the TVIn this room, the footboard has been sized up a tad to incorporate – and conceal – a television. It’s a sacrifice of only a few centimetres that saves on having a separate piece of furniture or a black screen hung on the wall, and adds a luxury touch to the scheme.Which of these ideas is your favourite?

Create the ultimate bedroomIf communal space is very limited, it could be worth moving out of the best room in the house and turning it instead into a luxurious, multi-use space for your lodger. Make it somewhere he or she will actively want to hang out. Consider how you could incorporate a TV (in the end of the bed, as here?), a desk, a lounging area and even an en-suite or kitchenette.
