10 Amazing Ways to Use Partitions

10 Amazing Ways to Use Partitions

Interior renovations10 Amazing Ways to Use Partitions

A few months ago, we shared an article about the 8 unique ways you can divide your space. Among the examples, some featured vertical wood slats which basically form a panel that doesn't block sunlight, and that's meant to divide your space. This effect can be created using a variety of materials, from wood to metal.

Today, with open-concept apartments being all the rage, an option like the room divider could prove to be the perfect solution to retain the overall grandeur and open-concept aspect of your space. At the same time, you’re able to maintain a sense of privacy in some rooms. That said, this method can easily adapt to the desired layout of your home, and that's why we're showing you 10 unique examples, that will, hopefully, inspire you!

10 Amazing Ways to Use Partitions

1. Wood slats to set a staircase apart

A common design used, and often seen on architectural websites, is a slatted wood staircase. With modern minimalist designs, central staircases are often built to connect the two floors. The use of wood slats ensures a certain level of safety while moving up and down the stairs, while also creating an overall visually appealing room.

2. As a hallway add-on

At times, your entryway may feel small and cramped, and the lack of space to hang your coats or those of your guests can be apparent. By adding hooks on the slats, and shelves facing the living room, you'll have both more storage space and an additional decorative feature.

3. A cabin-like look for the kids' beds



Give your little ones their dream bedroom with this great design idea! Perfect for bunk beds like those showcased in the above inspiring photo; you can easily create a magical play area right underneath.

4. An accent wall for a peaceful bathroom

If you have a clawfoot or freestanding tub, a wooden slat partition can create a nook-like space and allow you to have the most relaxing experience possible while still giving the space a luxurious design.

5. A bookshelf that's out-of-this-world

Here, one can see that the storage space tucked under the stairs was created with the help of wooden slats that double as shelving. That way, you have a two-for-one add-on with this great, handy design!

6. A well-defined, open-concept office

Simple yet practical, this solution could be ideal for remote working professionals. As a matter of fact, this would allow one to have a little peace of mind in an environment that may be conducive to distractions.

7. A well-framed mezzanine for some R&R



No matter how your mezzanine is being used, adding a partition will set it apart from the rest of the space. It's ideal if you want to have a reading nook, or maybe add a bed for guests to instead transform the space into a spare bedroom.

8. An industrial-looking cut-out in the living room

An industrial-looking cut-out partition could be the perfect idea if you’re looking to frame sections in a room or even if you want to add a bit of flair to your home. Of course, this will avoid creating a too drastic visual divide as is often the case with wooden slats.

9. An exterior partition for a balcony

In this article, we mainly discussed interior space dividers, but what about a solution for a shared balcony? This type of balcony is often seen in cities and although some have no qualms about hanging out with their neighbours in common outdoor areas, the use of a space divider will provide privacy for those who seek it.

10. A DIY bedroom project

If your budget is limited, use recycled or inexpensive materials to build a practical partition in your bedroom. As shown above, the partition is glazed and mounted between a crib and a bed.
