Bedroom in a small apartment: 5 tips for organizing space

A one-bedroom apartment has its advantages. Fewer square meters of cleaning and less furniture to buy. But when the single bedroom also needs to function as an office and gym, then that makes it a little more difficult to navigate. Here are 5 tips from professional designers to complete your bedroom with a variety of features.

Creating a room that is suitable for both productive work and relaxation is quite difficult. On the one hand, the interior should invigorate, and inspire excellent work and personal records. On the other hand, it should be a relaxing place where you don’t hear notifications and forget about deadlines. However, multi-functional bedrooms, with a certain approach, are quite real. 

Create a separation between work and leisure areas

No matter how small your work and sleeping spaces are, creating some level of separation is critical. It all depends on the layout. This can be as simple as arranging the furniture so that the bed is not visible from the side of the table or work surface. If you have enough square footage to work with, consider adding a partition wall to visually separate the space. It could also mean that your desk is facing a wall rather than a window, in which case designers recommend hanging a piece of art or something visually pleasing when you’re giving your eyes a break from the computer.

Use built-in modules

Professionals also recommend trying to move from room dividers to built-in furniture. Built-in elements provide a harmonious overall look and are a beautiful way to turn a home office into a bedroom.

Consider a smaller bed

This method is not for everyone, especially if you share your space with a partner. However, a compact bed can free up precious centimeters. Be flexible in your sizing. By adapting to a double bed, daybed, or bed in a wall niche, you will get the most useful space. Many designers suggest choosing a sofa bed or daybed as they serve two purposes: sleeping and relaxing.

Replace a nightstand with a desk

Dual-purpose furniture is the best way to make a multifunctional space work. One simple trick is to replace your bedside table with a beautiful table or console. Also, add a small acrylic accent chair that can be hidden under the table so it doesn’t overwhelm the space. 

Find a compact desk

Obviously, the table with the smallest size would be the best option. Look for a special item that reduces depth and scale. With no heavy drawers or shelves to weigh it down, the desk will feel clean and light in the bedroom. A ladder table or folding table is a great alternative if you don’t have much space.

  1. Great ideas but images not much help as they’re focused on “standard” & “modern” rooms. For me, attempting to create a bdrm/hm ofc for myself inside a small 1949-built home with TEENY bdrms is AGGRAVATING! Only 1 teeny window. Shutter doors for doors. Aarrgh! Only a mere inch off of bathroom entry! More Aarrrrgh! Currently overstuffed by 200% and used simply to contain possessions in their move-in state of being (boxes, bags etc). TEENY interior bdrm spc gloomy, very little sunlight. Least walls painted acceptable bright blue-green color! OVERWHELMED! SEEMINGLY INSURMOUNTABLE causing me to freeze and give up! Would love an article showing ideas for rooms in TEENY built during 1950’s. Something more like average U.S.A. homes.
