Bachelor Space Planning, Separating Your Room From Living Area

When it comes to apartment decor, working with a small space can be a challenge. When there's only so much space to fill, its best to combine design and functionality, and to carve out distinct areas of the space for different uses. If you want to plan out a beautiful bachelor apartment space, Timbercreek has some ideas that will help you divide and conquer small apartment.



Bookcases

The #1 choice for dividing a room into sections creatively is bookcases. There are myriad styles and options to choose from -- from see-through to solid, half height to full ceiling. They can be modular and mobile, or custom built for your apartment.  Learn more.

IKEA Wardrobe

A see-through IKEA wardrobe works nicely as a room divider. Look for one that has a few bells and whistles like drawers and shelves and levels so it looks a little less like a rolling hanger and more like a dream organizer. Overall it’s a great divider, and functional too.

Paper Screen

While at first glance, a paper screen is a student-like answer to adding size and separation to a room, its actually a great option for anyone in a small space. They come in a huge variety of styles, colors, and price points. Generally at the lower end (especially in comparison to shelving and custom installations), they’re a quick and easy fix for separating rooms in a bachelor layout.

Steel Mesh Wall Garden

A bit more permanent, this option entails wall mesh which is essentially a metal grid of squares, mounted 90 degrees from a wall, about 1-2 feet out from it. Be careful to attach it either to the ceiling or floor. The mesh provides a visual separation in a small space and when combined with hanging plants it offers some eye (and air) pleasing greenery.

Hanging Garden

A more DIY green wall approach is a garment rack garden. Grab one from Walmart, and instead of using it for clothes, outfit it with hanging plants. It adds division, lets light through, and offers a “living wall” vibe, bringing a splash of green to your space. Learn more.

Couch

An efficient and budget conscious option is using your couch and/or TV as a room divider. While not all apartment layouts allow for it, placing your couch between your bedroom and TV gives a bit of separation, especially when combined with a bookshelf, screen, or other aforementioned divider.
