Nicola shared her transformation online, explaining that their son has his own room, sharing a room with their daughter since birth.

She wrote, “We have a seven-year-old and three-year-old in a two-against-two downstairs.

“Our three-year-old girl has been with us since birth and just before the closure I decided we should try to get her own place.

“We had a huge closet in our room that made no sense. So grandparents to the rescue, one set built and designed it, while the other paid for materials (we’re very lucky).

“Here it is before and after and we even got a small hallway between our rooms. PS our room is still a good room, but we have not decorated it yet. ‘

The room makes the most of the space and contains a high shelving unit and a bunk bed with a secret play area underneath.

The extra bedroom even gets light from Nicola’s master and has a small open slot at the top of the room divider that connects to the little boy’s room.
