Built-in kid's daybed or windowseat with storage
Kids' bedrooms are often small, especially in older Asheville homes. Built-in daybeds and windowseats can make a small room feel spacious, especially if you can put them in a small niche and free up the rest of the floor for other uses.
As an added bonus, the space underneath can be used for drawers or a trundle bed.
This design puts storage at "kid height" and makes it easier for children to learn to clean their own rooms.
