A studio apartment is an open concept design, perfect for one person, or a couple living together, but sometimes it’s nice to have a slight separation between the bedroom and the kitchen or living room. Here are 4 ways to create a bedroom in a studio apartment.
Creating a division between your bedroom and the rest of a studio apartment can be as simple as purchasing a couple of temporary room dividers. Setting them up in a straight line between the living space and the bedroom will provide a separation and make your studio apartment feel more like a one bedroom apartment. As an extra bonus, if you ever decide you want to make your apartment open concept again, they can be folded up for easy storage.
A practical and useful way to divide your studio apartment is to use a large shelving unit. The open space between your bedroom and living area will prevent the it from feeling too closed off, but it will still provide you with a division between the two rooms. Shelving units are also the perfect way to create a separation, because they also provide a space for you to store items like books and photos.
A Sheer Curtain
Instantly freshen up your apartment and create a division between the living area and bedroom by installing a sheer panel curtain. The wispy nature of the curtain will give your apartment a chic Bohemian look, while providing you with the perfect way to separate your private space from your shared space. An advantage to using a curtain is that if you ever want to revert to the open concept of your studio apartment, all you have to do is open the curtain.
Create a Green Wall
Add an extra element of greenery to your apartment, while creating that division between your living space and bedroom by making a room divider out of plants. Vine plants attached to strings that are strategically placed can create a visually appealing way to create a separate space for your bedroom. The greenery will not only function as a room divider, but it will also brighten your place up, and give your apartment a calm, comforting atmosphere. If you have a green thumb, and would prefer a plant that also provides edibles for yourself, try using a bean plant. The vines will have the same effect, and you will have fresh beans to eat, without having to go to the grocery store.
A studio apartment can easily be divided into separate rooms if the separation is carefully planned out. Whether you use a room divider, a curtain, or plants, you can have a bedroom and separate living space, even in a studio apartment.
