Upstairs Renovations

It seems like we are always renovating something . . .

It's finally come. We've just began real renovations upstairs! I'm so excited to turn this space into the master suite with a walk-in closet and bathroom. (** PLUS I'm trying to get a washer and dryer in the bathroom or closet) The photo is of what will probably be the walk in closet.  The reason we bought this house in the first place was because of the space upstairs. But, it's going to be a lot of work.

The next few two weeks should be electrical work and insulation. Then the fun stuff. The space is quite large, but very awkward. The ceilings are slopped which make some space unusable. So I'm hoping to gather inspiration and ideas for how to efficiently use it.

I'd love if you had any comments or ideas that may help us make the space beautiful. You can email or comment if you'd like. I apprecaite any and all help. It's much needed.


  1. What an amazing space! Good luck.
    Many British homes have that slanted roof (my flat does) so maybe some inspiration from overseas may help to use this space best.

  2. how awesome! it will look amazing once you're finished (good luck)! i saw these shelves on IKEA that work with sloped ceilings:
