A cheap and quick way to separate space in a studio apartment - use pallets and a sheet of wood over the top to create a designated living room area. Also use planks from pallet to create a wooden wall to further create a sense of a separate space.
I might put this built-in in my master bath without the counter top and with built-in storage cabinets above. In a laundry room hampers in a vanity for sorting dry cleaning and laundry. I'm liking that! Also love the big counter.
