Do you live in a small house or apartment and are wondering how best to improve the space and have the question “What can I do?” in mind? Then this article is offering some answers (solutions) to the question.
Why should you divide your space? There can be many reasons, but the most common is the need for ease of defining what belongs to one place and what belongs to the other. Like if your apartment is a single room with no separation walls from the bedroom to the living room or your kitchen is not separated from the dining room. In this article, we are going to explore different ideas on how to divide room spaces to cater to different purposes. We are going to look at examples in different textures, colors, and shapes all aiming to attain the division of rooms without cutting them off.
What you lack in space can be attained in style. Every room no matter how small can be adjusted and decorated and the good thing is these adjustments and decorations do not require breaking walls or major renovations.
You do not necessarily need to separate a room, instead, you can create dividers. This is very useful in small home spaces as dividers take less space compared to separators, and can serve as decor as well. In the picture above we have a stylish bedroom and a sitting room on the other side of the divider.
Temporary Mobile Dividers
In small spaces, permanent dividers tend to make a room more cramped. Due to that, it is advised to install dividers that can be folded or removed easily when you don’t need them anymore.
A curtain is a perfect option for dividing spaces or rooms from each other. It’s an awesome idea to draw attention to your bedroom, breakfast alcove, or wardrobe.
Most often curtains are used for separating a sleeping area from other areas. If you live in a studio apartment or a tiny space, curtains are a perfect way to separate your sitting area from your bed for privacy.
If you are living in a small apartment, one of the biggest challenges you must be facing is creating multiple rooms from the single room you have. It’s not easy but it’s possible, you can start by defining your space without giving it a blocked off feel and making it look smaller than it is. A bookshelf can be one of the best solutions! Bookshelves are great because apart from dividing the space, they also provide that valuable extra storage space.
In small living spaces, wall beds are particularly useful and great at space-saving. There are many great choices when it comes to wall beds, with integrated features such as sofas, writing desks, dining tables, shelves, and wall cabinets (which stay level when the bed is folded down and removing the unnecessary hustle of moving things off the surface).
