I need your opinion on some bedrooms ideas. Here is what our bedroom looks like:
The first thing I want to do is tear out that built in headboard. While I think it's a unique feature, it's just not practical/functional and it drives me nuts. We wanted to get a King size bed, but couldn't, because it wouldn't fit between the headboard. We now have night stands (not pictured), but they can't be next to the bed because of that headboard...so they are awkwardly placed and aren't convenient when you want to set something on them during the night.
I just want to tear out that part that sticks out from the wall, not the entire wood wall. I think taking all that wood off the wall would be way more work than I want to do. What do you think? Any thoughts for or against it?
Here's my other question. The photo below is an old photo from when we first moved in, the walls are now painted a different color, but I wanted you to see that wall. All of the wood, trim, and doors are dark wood. The floors are dark. Our dressers and nightstands are dark. Even the light switch cover is dark wood! There is a lot of dark wood in this room. The room is not big, so I feel like all of the dark wood makes it seem smaller and darker. I would love to paint all the trim, doors, and that wood wall white, and leave the dark floors, dressers, and nightstands. The trim in our kitchen, living room, bathroom, and hallway was already painted white when we moved in (you can see the hallway trim in the photo below). What is your opinion on painting over this dark wood?
So what do you think, should I tear out that headboard that sticks out? Should I paint the trim, doors, and wood wall white?
