10 Magnificent Examples of Interior Partitions

Last modified: 2022-07-29 | Approximate reading time 3 mins

A few months ago, we shared an article about 8 ways to divide your space in an original way. Among the examples, some used a slatted partition, which is a panel meant to divide your space without blocking natural light. This effect can be created using a variety of materials, from wood to metal.

Today, with open concept apartments becoming more and more trendy, an option like the room partition could prove to be the perfect solution in order to retain the grandeur and openness of your space. At the same time, you’re able to maintain a sense of privacy in some rooms. In short, this method can easily adapt to the desired layout of your apartment or house, and that's why here we show you 10 original examples that’ll hopefully inspire you

10 magnificent examples of the use of room partitions

1. Wood slats to separate a staircase

A common and well-known use of this method on architectural sites is the use of slats around the stairwell. In new minimalist designs, we see a central staircase that joins the two floors of the house. The use of wood slats ensures a certain level of security in the circulation of the home, in addition to creating a visual appeal for the overall room.

2. An extension for the entrance portico

Sometimes your entryway may feel small and lack space to hang your coats, or those of your guests. This idea seems perfect, with a wooden shelf placed above the entrance screens, which can easily be transformed into a bookshelf or even be used for other decorative objects!

3. A semblance of a cabin for the children's bed

Give your little ones a real dream room with this great design idea! Perfect for a bunk bed like in this inspirational image, you can easily create a magical play space underneath them.

4. A screen in the bathroom for a relaxation area

If you have a clawfoot tub or a tub that is independent of the shower, a wood slat partition used to keep it isolated from the rest of the room will allow you to have the most relaxing experience possible while adding a bit of luxury to the room.

5. A bookshelf that is out-of-the-ordinary

Here, you can see storage space tucked under the stairs, created with the help of fencing that doubles as shelving. This way, you have two utilities in one with this great handy design!

6. A well-defined office, even in an open area

Simple and practical, this solution could offer several professionals working from home an interesting option. Indeed, this would allow you to have a little peace of mind in an environment that may be conducive to distractions.

7. A well-framed mezzanine for a rest area

No matter how your mezzanine space is being used, adding a fence will separate it from the rest of the room. This arrangement is perfect for creating a reading corner, or maybe installing a bed for guests and instead, creating a bedroom.

8. An industrial-style fence for the living room

Perfect for adding style and interest to your home, an industrial-type canopy could be the perfect idea if you’re looking to frame the sections of a room. Of course, this helps to avoid too drastic a visual cut as is the case with the wood slats.

9. An exterior screen for the balcony

In this article, we’re mainly discussing dividers for your interior, but what about a solution for a balcony you’re sharing with a neighbour? This balcony design is often seen in cities and although some have no problem hanging out with neighbours in common outdoor spaces, the use of a fence will provide privacy for those who seek it.

10. A DIY bedroom project

If your budget is limited, it’s possible to use recycled or inexpensive materials to build a useful partition structure for your bedroom. In this example, we can see a frosted room divider installed between a crib and a bed.
