A couple of months ago we raved about the positives of small space living in a post chronicling the pros of living in a studio apartment. While we all shared some of our favorite things about studio apartments, there are bound to be a few negatives of all your living activities taking place in the same room...

One of our least favorite things about living in a studio apartment is the fact that your bed is in the same room where you entertain guests, cook, watch movies, etc. We've personally placed our bed low on the ground and behind our couch to help disguise it. In the photograph above, the owners used a four poster bed to help define a sleep space in a larger room.

If you live in a studio, how have you created your own little sleep space that is defined from the rest of your apartment? Do you try to disguise your bed? Do you let guests use it as extra seating or do you prefer to keep it separate? Did you purchase a special bed or convertable couch when you moved into your studio to specifically address this issue? Share your great solutions to inspire others!
