After a long busy day, all you want is a place to relax. Unfortunately, if you live in a studio where your sleeping, eating, and working spaces overlap, your home can feel as crowded as public transit.

One of the biggest challenges of studio unit is deciding how to multiply rooms when you only have one. You could hire an incredible design firm to fix it for you or you could implement a few of these simpler, cheaper tricks to create multiple living areas in your studio unit. 

 

1. Envision your floor plan, and don’t forget to include “doors.”

 

Before you even think about dividers, you should know the space you want to create. Decide which corners and areas of your studio will become your bedroom, living room, dining room, and kitchen.

Once you map this out mentally, begin grouping (or planning to buy) furniture that fits both the space and function of each area, and remember to include entryways. It may all begin in your head, but like any floor plan, it has to remain as accessible as possible.

 

2. Think outside the wall with bookshelves.

When one of your goals is to maximize space, the more practical a solution is the better. Set bookshelves perpendicular to a wall to divide living areas and add valuable storage space in your small apartment. The bookshelves don’t have to stretch to the ceiling, but for the sake of illusion and the extra room, go tall.

 

3. Think thin walls, as in curtains.

 

 

In a studio unit, every square inch counts. So if you want to physically separate your sleeping quarters, choose curtains. When extended, curtains give you plenty of privacy yet takes up millimeters of space. When you’re ready to get out of bed and expand the room, all you have to do is slide them out of your way with one hand. Oh, and if you lack carpentry skills, don’t worry. A rod and fabric couldn’t be easier to hang.

 

4. For movie buffs: Install a projector screen.

 

When most people think of essential living spaces, they probably list dining area, bedroom, and study or lounge. However, if you wanted a personal home theater, add a projection screen to the foot of your bed. The installation is simpler than you might expect, and the sheer panel allows light to pass through, keeping the small area open.

5. Put your couch at the foot of your bed.

 

Separating your living areas doesn’t get easier than this trick, which works for almost any studio unit. Set your couch at the foot of your bed so that your back faces your sleeping area whenever you’re seated. With or without an additional physical barrier, the psychological division is clear.

So as you plan how to divide your studio into separate rooms, be sure to also organize your condo. Keep things that you need and/or make you happy; put the stuff that you love but don’t need right away in storage; and throw out, recycle, donate, sell, or gift the rest.

The result: a clean studio condo unit  with multiple customizable rooms in which you’re only surrounded by the objects that make you happy. And who wouldn’t want that? :)
