Most of us will spend some time living alone at one point or another, and not everyone needs a separate bedroom when they're the only person in the house! Sometimes it's good enough to have a living and sleeping area rolled into one.
Despite how you see most people living, you might not need a home with a separate room for sleeping. Studio designs are a convenient, economical solution for people living on their own, so if that's you, take a look through the plans below!
