When you rent apartments you are often not allowed for making any kind of structural changes in the apartment without the consent of the landlord and, in most of the cases, you can never expect this consent to come your way. So, when you have to add extra bedroom in the apartment, you have to find the space for it in the apartment and this is not too difficult to do. You only need to repurpose your available space and create different dividers for getting the privacy.
Your extra bedroom in stockbridge apartments does not really have to have standard bed. Just find the space in the room which can be used to serve different purpose. Next you can simply incorporate some kind of bed which fits in your space best. Take an unusual approach – probably you do not want to have standard bed when you have such a dual-purpose space. Here, using convertible furniture can be a good ploy and you can include futons, foldout chairs or couches and the Murphy beds. You can, for example, rearrange your office for making space to accommodate a futon. Your hideaway bed can be added to your sewing room as well. Or you can transform your big walk-in closet and make it your small bedroom and have some kind of convertible chair in this space.
Another good idea would be to add wardrobe for making the dividing wall to add extra storage along the way. Beds can be placed on your bedroom’s opposite walls. Now, you can add dressers or tall bookcases in center for dividing the space into two. If you need, you can include extra storage as well with the help of freestanding wardrobes. It will also make the two new bedrooms in your apartments in Stockbridge to look more real and practical.
A wonderful idea would be to make “mirror image” room by placing a couple of beds opposite to one another right in the middle of your room. Now a 4×8 ft plywood sheet can be upholstered on either side and you can place it in between your beds so that they may seem like the tall headboards. Holes should be drilled in bed legs as well as attached to plywood on either side. This process should now be repeated with a couple of dressers as well. You can attach a couple of plywood pieces together using mounting brackets or broad tape. Now hang pictures or light mirrors above your dressers after covering and stabilizing the plywood. Using this method, you can be able to create 8×8 ft. wall.
Another idea is to turn your attic space or loft into your sleeping area. You can do this by hanging some tenting material all around your bed which can be opened and closed as required to get more privacy.
