Bedroom living room - an example of zoning in a one-room apartment
Bedroom living room - a new trend in the layout of one-bedroom apartments. So it was in our life that most of the apartments, especially those that were built a couple of decades ago, do not allow us to create separate rooms in which we can equip the kitchen, dining room, living room, home office and children's room.
Therefore, most designers combine several zones into one to solve pressing planning problems in small apartments.
Combining the sleeping area with the living room is considered a rather difficult task, especially in one-bedroom apartments or studios. It is also the main problem in families with children living in small dwellings with two rooms and a kitchen.
What to choose, a sofa or a bed?
If you are going for a bedroom and a living room to take away a small square that resembles a square, then it is better for them to choose a 2-in-1 folding sofa.
Currently, the choice of comfortable sofas is huge. They are equipped with capacious boxes, in which you can store a lot of small things.
Also look at the original pouffes and tables with wheels on the legs, they can be pushed off without problems, so as not to interfere.
If you have a room with a large enough area, then you can easily install a large comfortable bed, mini-sofa and armchairs. Thus, you can divide the space into zones, but it's our main task to correctly position them.
Where it is better to install a bed?
The bedroom can not be made through. Therefore, as we used to see in many houses, the bed is placed near the wall, which is located opposite the doors, at the window. For most people, it's not clear why, it's better to sleep by the window, so it's convenient and practical to place a bed in this place.
If you do not care how the light falls or if the input is not in the center, then you can create a place to sleep in the corner. The bed can be fenced off with a curtain or screen, partition or with doors with a sliding mechanism.
How to divide visually the dining room and the area for sleep?
Do not build a massive brick wall, install a partition of plasterboard to divide the room into two functional spaces. The living room should be filled with light so that it does not look like a utility room.
A large selection of mobile partitions will help in solving the division of space.
Separate the two spaces can be curtains, doors with a sliding mechanism, glass partitions, shelves or screens.
Thanks to convenient mobile partitions you can create incredibly spacious rooms and easily transform them depending on your wishes.
If you are left alone at home, then you can add a little light and fresh air, while expanding the doors and curtains. If visitors come to you, then with the help of the curtains you can hide your personal individual place from them.
How to divide rationally the space?
The place for sleep is separated not only by charms, but also at the expense of the floor, it can be an original cover with a different texture or level a shade of walls or lighting capable of visually creating a barrier between rooms. Put the carpet in the bedroom, thereby creating a visual barrier.
In the living room, place more lights, making the lighting more intense. But in the bedroom you can make it more muted, creating an intimate atmosphere.
Walls in the dream zone color a little darker, cover them with contrasting wallpaper and thus visually divide the room into two.
You can also create something like a podium in it. With its help you can solve several problems, it will divide the room and at the same time you can make convenient boxes in it, in which you will store a lot of small things.
