Transition Interior Design

In a studio, where the living room, the dining room and the bedroom are one, intimacy is not always at the rendezvous. This is especially true for the sleeping area, which, as an integral part of the living room, does not offer insulation. By which means to separate the room from the rest of the room?

These are the questions that Carla Lopez, interior designer and co-founder of the Transition Interior Design agency, answered.

Even in a studio, it is important to separate the different spaces, and especially the room, place of intimacy par excellence. This is not because the place is missing in a small studio that we must give up the development of a sleeping area in its own right. Deco tips, planning tips, space saving ideas ... Discover all the keys to arrange a room in a studio.

Privilege partial separations to isolate the room in the studio

If your goal is not to soundproof the room and to partition it in a radical way, the best is to opt for more discreet and ephemeral solutions. Studios already lack space and fluidity, Carla Lopez, interior designer, advises not to completely isolate the room.

For this, the interior designer recommends to privilege the visual or partial separations. In order to visually isolate the room from the rest of the studio, one can resort to painting, by dressing the walls of the room of a different color than that of the studio. The more the colors are distinct, the more the visual separation will be marked. Another tip is to choose different materials for the floor of the sleeping area and the living room. Laying tiles in the living room and parquet in the room will, for example, the most beautiful effect. These two solutions make it possible to dissociate the pieces thanks to a very decorative optical effect!

But what about mezzanines to isolate the room in a studio? If the apartment has a good height under ceiling, the interior designer Carla Lopez is not against this idea.

Prefer custom furniture to retractable furniture

To save space in small spaces, it's tempting to turn to solutions such as retractable furniture. If this type of furniture is of undeniable practicality, the interior designer regrets their side a little "gadget", and argues that they often take up more space than expected.

The ideal way to create a sleeping area in a studio is to opt for custom furniture. Perfectly adapted to the dimensions and the specificities of the room in which they are implanted, the personalized furniture bends to your desires. So, to create a corner room in a studio or to furnish it, make you manufacture adapted partitions, separations two in one or a bed space saving.

For small budgets, it may be appropriate to combine custom furniture, a bit expensive, and more accessible furniture, such as Ikea boxes, for example. Another economical and up-to-date solution: DIY and recycling. With a few wooden planks, vintage pieces and a little elbow grease, make up a separate sleeping area that looks exactly like you.

Create a unity in the decoration of both spaces

In a studio, whether you decide to separate the room from the living room in a visual or physical way, it is essential to create a unity in the decor of spaces. "You have to create a visual uniformity between the bedroom and the rest of the apartment, playing with colors and objects," confirms Carla Lopez of Transition Interior Design.

Despite the partial isolation of the studio space, it is necessary to maintain harmony and ensure not to create distinctions too clear, all to remain consistent and pleasing to the eye.
