Opening the bedroom to the living room without doing major work is a big challenge. Furnishing a 3 in 1 room is indeed complicated if you only have a small space. To succeed in this more or less daring challenge, here are some tips that are as smart as they are practical.
1. Use furniture and rugs
To arrange a 3 in 1 room , there is nothing more practical than using the furniture. Modular, the furniture makes it possible to organize several spaces in a single room. With a corner sofa, it is possible to create a convivial living room perfectly separated from other spaces. Indeed, this furniture can easily serve as a separator. You just need to choose it for a perfectly harmonized arrangement.
The carpets are also effective for visually prioritize the room . In addition to their decorative function, these floor coverings effectively make it possible to create different distinct spaces within the same room.
2. A glass roof
Using a glass roof is possible to distinguish the spaces of a single room . In addition, this installation adds a touch of both modern and design to the room. The glass roof also makes it possible to enlarge the rooms while letting the light pass through the entire space.
3. A wooden structure
Whatever its color and shape, a wooden structure perfectly delimits the living room from the dining room and the bedroom. It also brings a designer touch to the entire room.
4. The curtains
There is nothing simpler than curtains to create a cozy bedroom-dining-living room in the same room. In no time at all, the curtains are drawn and the bed disappears to make room for the living or dining room. To keep the brightness of the room, it is advisable to use neutral and light curtains. On the other hand, to isolate the bedroom from other spaces, it is better to choose thick fabric.
5. A screen
The screen is perfect for setting up a small space. This decorative accessory makes it possible to distinguish different zones in the same room while adding a personal touch to the decor. The folding screen option is ideal for those who like to reorganize their interior regularly.
6. Japanese signs
Japanese panels are useful for arranging different spaces in a small room. They also add character to the decor. The panels can in particular be transformed into sliding doors to optimize the space while playing with the brightness.
7. A small staircase
Whatever the number of steps and thanks to the difference in levels, a small staircase also makes it possible to visually distinguish several spaces in a single room.
8. A staggered partition
Nothing better than a staggered partition to delimit the bedroom from other rooms. Acting as a semi-partition, it can be colored and decorated according to the general decor.
9. A library
Practical and aesthetic, bookcases are perfect for separating different spaces while giving style.
10. A sleeping area in the living room separated by curtains
The curtains make it easy to modulate the space while creating an intimate and warm cocoon. They are chosen in the form of a curtain to let the light pass, or thicker to visually isolate the two spaces.
11. Install a partition halfway up
To set up a sleeping area in a living room, we retain the idea of a partial partition: it sets the limits of two distinct spaces while avoiding enclosing the volumes. You can opt for a simple headboard but also create a real volume dedicated to the sleeping area, like this open cube creating a real raised bedroom area.
12. Sliding doors or Japanese panels
To create a sleeping area in a living room like a real second room, sliding doors are ideal: open to appreciate the volumes, you can close them as you wish when you want to isolate the sleeping area. They are chosen opaque to protect themselves from view, or in glass for maximum lightness. On the same principle, the sliding doors can be replaced by Japanese panels, which are lighter.
13. Arrange a sleeping area in the living room with a mezzanine
When the ceiling height allows it, the mezzanine is ideal for increasing the surface area and the m²! Dressing room, living room or kitchen, we take advantage of the space it frees up on the floor!
14. Collect plants to create privacy
To create a separation between the sleeping area and the living room, plants can also be a good option: they are accumulated on the floor, on a bench, and even on the ceiling by hanging them.
15. A sleeping area in the living room, for an open space where the bed fits
Sometimes, it is not wise to separate the sleeping area from the rest of the room, especially when the latter is very small. To integrate the bed into the living space, we can remember a few tips: 1) a light or invisible bed frame: avoid massive bed frames or headboards which will clutter up the space and attract the eye. 2) a bedspread and cushions: to harmonize the presence of a bed in the living room, it is covered with a bedspread or a linen sheet, for example, and a few cushions are added to it, the bed then taking on bench-like appearance. 3) light and small furniture: in small spaces in general, and a fortiori when these have a sleeping area, light furniture is used: you can choose to replace the sofa with armchairs for example, or even select two small coffee tables rather than a larger one.
16. Well-lit your living-dining room
Let natural light penetrate as much as possible to give the day an impression of grandeur. The soft curtains protect you from prying eyes without darkening the room. For warm evenings, the lighting will need to be taken care of. Vary the light sources . For the main light , bet on a pretty designer pendant light. Then put a floor lamp on a console or floor lamp by the sofa if space allows. On the fireplace or wall shelf, a light garland will be an ideal decorative accessory to create a welcoming atmosphere.
17. The kitchen is forgotten
Most of us don’t want to draw attention to the kitchen, relying more on the living and dining space. In this case, it requires great care to be erased, you integrate it into your stay and not the other way around. For this, it is essential that it remains fairly sober. Light colors will then be favored, furniture without handles, clean and minimalist lines allow the kitchen to blend in. Try, to lighten the whole, to opt either for very tall furniture to increase storage capacity, or alternate open and closed furniture to make it more airy.
It is the brightness and dazzling whiteness that call out in this kitchen with a total white look ! In this case, it loses nothing of its warm side thanks to the Scandinavian-style furniture and the presence of wood. It blends in perfectly with the rest of the room. The metro tiled wall, the marble worktop and the glass one reflect the light.
18. The kitchen area asserts itself
In an open kitchen, you have to take into account the two spaces, because inevitably the style and the colors of your kitchen will play a role on the atmosphere of your room. A sanitized kitchen without charm, and the rest of the room immediately becomes not very warm. We can avoid white which can seem a little basic and opt instead for light shades or dark colors which give character and charm. It is you who choose according to your tastes of course and the whole of the room. To slice or on the contrary to merge? It’s up to you to decide.
Multiply the details that give it character such as a pretty splashback, strong patterns, decorative elements or strong or bright colors. Dare, but remaining in harmony, it is the essential condition for the success of your project. It is also possible to play with the contrast, but keep in mind that beyond three dominant tones, you have to be careful not to have any bad surprises.
19. Graphic and integrated into the living space
Graphic and integrated into the living space, this kitchen has worked on its aesthetics. We notice the numerous storage spaces that blend in well with this universe and the large central island which offers a large work surface and which exhibits some decorative objects making the perfect transition between kitchen and living room.
20. Opens very widely on the living space
An industrial spirit for this kitchen treated on a shelf with a little return. It opens very widely on the living space without this being shocking, because it is forgotten by its simplicity. The mix of black and light wood is as attractive as ever.
21. Use multifunctional furniture
Since every square inch counts, multifunctional furniture is best suited for small spaces.
22. Exploit every nook and cranny
In a studio or a small apartment, every corner should be tapped. All you have to do is opt for furniture that can fit in.
