Turning a Studio into a One bedroom apartment!!!

With the property prices the way they are almost everywhere I can totally appreciate this "Ikea Hack". These renovators used wardrobe doors to turn a Studio into a great one bedroom apartment Genius! Full post here.





A note from the renovators:
I can't imagine anyone wanting to have their bed in their living room, so we started to brainstorm. We discussed ever type of foldaway bed and room divider. Then we found IKEA's PAX sliding cupboard doors.


We bought the biggest we could find in light aluminum and frosted glass.


We measured the size of our Ikea beds and marked off the new room so it would fit our bed and some clothing space tightly in order to save as much space in the living room as possible.


I whipped up 2 wooden frames and mounted them to the ceiling, walls and floor. I then mounted the PAX doors and tidied up the frame.

Genius!
