    most guys don't realize how incredibly cheap it can be to redo an entire room. I think they're more put off by the idea of taking on the task than the cost of it.

    A room like this could be put together for well under 1K :o

    the bed frame was $149 and that sideboard/cabinet was like $350-400

    A bucket of paint, some $3 sheer curtains and a $40 rug and you're good to go :dunno:

    I really like how they used that Bonde sideboard without the legs. I wish I had done that instead of buying the credenza I have :sad2:

    everything seems too low-lying for me in that pic, feels too dorm-like

    It's better than my place, I desperately need new bedroom furniture.

    Mine consists of a mattress on the floor, and a love sack :kdubb:

    I'll read the article when I get off work

    I find that a little surprising. You like Japanese style where everything is low.

    I have no problem with the Malm bed, but the Credenza is probably 21" tall at very most, and now that I think about it, that's waaay too short to function ergonomically.

    I do but it just seems like unless you have a ton, and I mean a ton of space like in a loft, a lot of low elements in such a small space makes you look like you are a squatter just passing through :rofl:

    agreed. I think they tried to make that place look a lot bigger than it really was. The scale is off. I still don't hate it, but I'd certainly change a lot of things about it :o

    They should've varied the height of some of the pieces to add interest so everything wasn't so squat :o

    I hate high beds. If you live in a small space it takes up so much damn room to the point of it being almost like another wall. I left my box spring next to a dumpster when I moved. Fucking thing was pretty much useless :o

    If I can get my interior designer friend to hook up a discount, I will seriously take these into consideration in the 72" height :yum:

    if you have no headboard then you'd better have a platform bed with a huge amount of space surrounding it :o
