1. DIVIDE THE ROOM WITH DISTINCT FLOORING
The flooring gives contouring to a room, framing it visually while charting out its dimensions for us. When it comes to bedroom flooring ideas, consider two distinct colors, materials, or even textures, to create a partition within the room. This will help you read it as two bedrooms within one.
2. DRAW THE CURTAINS TO CREATE TWO ROOMS
Diving a room with a curtain is one of the easiest ways to split your space without making a permanent commitment to your walls. Consider blackout curtains if you're trying to create a walk-in closet or a changing area. If it's just a space to work or study, maybe choose cotton or sheer ones that create a feeling of distinction without making the room feel smaller.
3. USE THE MAGIC OF MILLWORK
The idea behind this room is that millwork has been used to create a separate walk-in closet and bedroom out of one room. Not only does the millwork add warmth to the bedroom, but with a soothing green bedroom color idea, it gives the space a feeling of breeziness.
4. CONSIDER A CURVING HEADBOARD FOR A SUBTLE DIVISION
When thinking of bedroom headboard ideas, we usually consider these as decorative elements that give the bed a crowning glory. Sure, these beauties add color, pattern, and design to the space but have you ever considered their functional contributions as well?
5. CREATE A BAY WINDOW
Another great way to zone out a bedroom is with a window seat. These add a whimsical touch to the room and offer a lovely spot to sit, read, and contemplate. Plus, there’s the added benefit of built-in storage underneath.
6. FIT A SMALL HOME OFFICE INSIDE A CLOSET
There's something so clever about closet offices because not only is it a genius space-saving solution, but once work hours are over, you can shut the door and switch off immediately.
An alcove, a spare cupboard, and a closet that you can sacrifice some clothes storage for a desk, all offer up as alternatives for a home office. While you're facing inwards, it almost feels like you're seated in another area, or room, far removed from the home's chatter.
7. PLACE THE BED INSIDE A NICHE
If you have an awkward bedroom layout, with corners, alcoves, and niches, use it to your advantage. Place a bed and a cabinet inside one such corner or niche, leaving the rest of the room open for other uses.
8. CREATE A SEPARATE SEATING AREA
Have a large bedroom? Use the space to your advantage by creating an intimate lounging area with bedroom seating (sofas or armchairs), and add a fireplace too. This will help you create two distinct and equally functional areas in your bedroom, much like a five-star suite in any luxury hotel.
9. ADD A SLIDING DOOR
'Room dividers are a good way to divide and break up a space and also act as décor be it any space,' says architect Aparna Kaushik. The design of the divider should not be too bold, but rather something that fits well in the space without symbolizing the end of one zone and the beginning of another. Open dividers keep a visual connection between the spaces without breaking the flow and grandness of a space.'
10. ZONE EACH SPACE WITH LIGHTING
Lights play a starring role in any room's decor. Not only do they lift the mood and look of the room, but functionally too they can endow a room with personality and more use.
WHAT IS THE CHEAPEST WAY TO DIVIDE A BEDROOM?
There are several ways you can divide a bedroom into two rooms on a budget. Add an internal curtain in your modern bedroom, and segregate the space between the sleeping and dressing area. A more suitable way is with paints or wallpapers.
You can even place a bookshelf in a corner to cordon off a reading spot from the bed. A fabric screen can help you out as well; as can a few tall plants.
