Housing bonus is given for specific, separated rooms that are equipped with fitting furniture, for example bathroom and bedroom. A room may not contain any crafting tables, otherwise it counts as industrial and any furniture bonus is void - the exception is the kitchen, here some of the crafting tables double as furniture.

You can only receive housing bonus from a single deed, e.g. one house that is continuously connected, as you need to be a resident of the deed.

You likely have claimed a separate area, so it is a separate deed, but haven't become a resident of that deed. To do so, just click on the deed name and click the become resident button, that will remove your residency from the first deed, though.

So you will want to make one connected deed and build a house there with separate rooms stuffed with fitting furniture for the specific room and keep your industry either in separate rooms, or even on a separate deed, where you do not need to become resident.

It doesn't work. You cannot have crafting tables in rooms that are to provide housing and you need different rooms for each of the bonus categories.

This part isn't completely true. As long as they are all on the same deed, the rooms don't need to be in the same building. However, most people make one house with connected rooms or a multi-story building accomplishing the same feat.
I was talking about a single deed, and that's correct.

Originally posted by Syrilian: So what happens when I have two structures? The first "house" I put down ended up being industrial because I have crafting stations there. So I built a second "house" with a general area, a bedroom and a kitchen but I am still not getting a bonus.
As long as the house is on the same deed, it will work.

You can be resident of several buildings, but they need to be on the same deed, as described above.
