This is our only ground floor bedroom. In the left-hand photograph, it is shown with twin beds.
On the right, the bed beside the window has had the head elevated. The foot can be electronically operated too. Through the window you can see our shady, courtyard garden, which is usually alive with small, garden birds enjoying our feeders. Dunnocks have occupied our nest box in the spring for several years.
The Italian porcelain tiles have under floor heating, but there is a radiator as well. Sheepskin rugs are placed in front of each bedside table. Teak G Plan furniture was chosen for the room because it matched the timbers of the vaulted ceiling. The Tiffany style table lamp is also switchable on the wall beside the doorway when you enter the room. The wall-mounted TV and the DVD player have remote controls.
The pine door leads to the shower room. Click here to go through it.
Here the twin beds have been pushed together to make a six-foot-wide bed. The mattresses can have a pair of single bottom sheets or a super-king one, but if the latter is chosen, raising the beds electronically has to be co-ordinated.
