Living in a studio apartment can be quite an adjustment, especially since you have to live with the idea that the kitchen is part of your bedroom. An easy solution one should consider is investing in a room divider. Easy to transport and store, room dividers work well in sectioning off different areas of your apartment, and most even provide extra shelving for books and other treasured accessories. Room dividers don't have to be limited to studio apartments; bathrooms, dens and family rooms can also benefit from these dividers without you having to spend extra money in partitioning off space.
Screen dividers are an attractive, popular option one can consider when breaking up space. Usually designed with three collapsible doors and made from a variety of materials such as bamboo, silk, metal and wood, screen dividers make great room accent pieces while offering privacy.
For an even more affordable option, try hanging curtains or attractive yards of fabric from your ceiling. This airy alternative adds a fluid element of design to any home. Ideally you'd want to use this method to section off your bedroom from the rest of your living space, but if you lack proper closet doors you may want to consider using curtains as a temporary solution. As a side note, be sure your fabric dividers don't touch your floors; the last thing you need is to accidentally step on your curtains and bring the entire ceiling down!
If you're looking for a more psychedelic or bohemian aesthetic, consider beaded curtains in place of fabric curtains. Fun and contemporary, beaded curtains come in a variety of shapes, colors and materials, perfect for conveying your personality. Other than being a creative alternative, beaded curtains can always be swept to the side and tied off. The only downside is that you won't get the same amount of privacy as you would with fabric curtains.
Room dividers are great in that they help you section off your studio apartment and maximize your space. As helpful as they are for studio apartments, room dividers are probably one of the few pieces of furniture that will work well in any home.
