4 Practical Tips To Create Your Own Personal Space At Home


If the Circuit Breaker period and working from home arrangement have taught us anything, it is that everyone requires their personal space. Our homes have served as an office, an entertainment room and even a gym throughout this past year.

The importance of having a personal space to call your own is becoming more apparent, especially when you are living with various family members. It is a place for you to take a break from your hectic schedule to relax and enjoy a quiet moment. Let us explore four design strategies you can adopt to maintain your privacy.

1. Consider installing a folding screen

Open-concept living spaces in Singapore have been growing in popularity over the years. There is no denying the appeal of this trend, and an open-concept flat generally looks fantastic. However, there is lesser privacy available for both you and your family.

For those seeking to maintain some semblance of privacy in such a situation, you may consider installing a folding screen. This screen is a great way to divide the room and create two separate spaces. Having a barrier between you and any potential disruptive noise can create a more conducive environment for your work or free time.

2. Hanging curtains as alternatives to folding screens

If installing a folding screen is too expensive, you can consider using ceiling-mounted curtains to achieve similar privacy. These curtains are easier to install, and you can remove them without much effort when you no longer require them.

You can always pull the curtain and close it when you require some privacy and open them back up again once you are done. The curtains also come in various designs, and you can choose your ideal curtain to spruce up your home. Regardless of your budget, you are likely to find one that is suitable for you.

3. Turn your bedside table into a workstation

Often, the bedroom is one of the few places in your home that can guarantee you some privacy. If you are looking for a private corner to browse the internet or meet a project deadline, why not consider converting your bedside table into a workstation or relax corner.

Suppose your bedside table is too small to be used as a workstation. In that case, you should consider replacing it with a bigger desk so that you have more space available. At Finn Avenue, we offer an extensive catalogue of side tables to choose from if you are looking for one that matches your personal or working needs.

4. Create your own space

No matter how big or small your home is, there is likely to be one corner of the house left unused. Putting your stamp on this space can be as simple as getting a comfortable chair and placing it there. You can utilise this area as a personal reading corner.


Having a personal space can be as equally important as spending time with your family. After the hustle and bustle of working life, it can be comforting to head back home to chill in a cosy corner.
