Help Arranging Cramped Basement Studio?

Q: Help!!! I live in a lightless basement room and need help arranging the cramped space to accommodate four key elements:

  • space for upright exercise bike
  • sewing/craft area
  • desk for studying
  • bed - I would love to have something bigger than a twin

I'm semi handy also which may make this project possible

Editor: Melanie- it is hard to tell without actual measurements, but it looks to us like you might have to compromise on some elements of your request. Based on the floorplan you submitted, we believe you could get in a full bed if you are willing to combine your study desk/sewing area into one. Depending on the size of the bike, you might be able to tuck into a corner at the end of the bed, but that is definitely going to be the hardest piece to incorporate. Do any readers have suggestions for Melanie?
