Glade Cottage has a floating wall.
Once upon a time we had a boarder living in the Cottage whose day job was creating displays for Crate and Barrel.
Instead of using the room as one big open space she had her boyfriend build a floating wall. The purpose appeared to be twofold: 1.) hide the washer/dryer and create a closet area at the back of the Cottage near the bathroom and 2.) create a wall against which to put her bed.
The beauty of this wall is that it can be used is a variety of configurations to transform the space.
When I showed my friend (who might be living in The Cottage) this floating wall she said she might move it forward in the room to create a private area for her bedroom.
After removing my bedframe and other clutter from behind the wall we noticed it is only finished on one side.
Since I had 3 full sheets of wallboard left over from the house renovation I suggested we drywall the other side as well so the space that is to be a bedroom would have finished walls.
My friend, with very little help from us, attached the drywall so the floating wall would be finished on both sides.
Then the wall was painted Templeton Grey by Benjamin Moore which is also the color of the Cottage bathroom.
She and I tried to move the wall forward to place it between the front door and the wall-mounted propane heater.
Unfortunately the stairs to the attic even when in storage position would not allow the wall to move into place without notching the top.
Instead my friend decided it might be better to leave the wall in place and to put her washer/dryer, closet and other storage items behind the wall.
The bed will be against the wall facing the front door. As the set-up progresses I’ll post the layout.
Do you rearrange your furniture from time to time?
