A studio apartment is one room with no extra walls to section off the space. Technically, your bedroom falls inside your living room making it one large room (aka a studio). But what if you do not want your bedroom inside of your living room? Like most apartment owners, you probably want to somehow section off this space to create a more living-friendly apartment. If you are interested in learning how to accomplish this, we have seven great hacks for you! Let’s take a look.
How to Create a Bedroom in a Studio Apartment:
1. Incorporate Curtains.
If you want to separate your bedroom from the living room, you can incorporate curtains surrounding your bedroom area. This will help to section off the space, and the curtains can be drawn back at a moment’s notice.
2. Install a Sliding Door.
If your landlord allows, installing a sliding door can do wonders for your apartment’s construct. The sliding door creates the most division out of all of the choices and creates a chic look within your studio.
3. Build a Half-Wall.
If you do not want to completely close off your space, half-walls are a genius invention. They allow for a casual flow throughout the room while still dividing the area. For apartments, since they are temporary, you may want to build your own half-wall. You can get the supplies at a local home improvement store and even find a DIY tutorial online.
4. Put in a Room Divider.
You can buy a physical room divider for your space to help section off your room. You can even decorate it with plants or lights to make it more personalized.
5. Utilize a Bookcase.
Get creative with your furniture like a bookcase and use it as a room divider. A bookcase can help add to the room’s decor and functionality while dividing off your space.
6. Divide The Space with Color.
Apartment owners have recently gotten more creative with their attempts to divide off their space. In recent years, they have dabbled with paint to create a visual division within the room. In this idea, you will have half of the wall in one color and the other half in another color. Each color will establish a division visually. For instance, the living room is in white, and the bedroom is in gray. You technically have one open space, but the wall color helps make a division without closing off the space.
7. Embrace The Open Floor Plan.
Lastly, you can take charge of your place and embrace the open floor plan. Open floor plans can be great for entertaining and company. Take advantage of your studio apartment and love every moment.
