How to divide a room into zones without building additional walls? We know several ways that successfully cope with this task, without depriving the fenced off space of natural light, which is so important. The issue of zoning a room is relevant both for small apartments and for large rooms that serve simultaneously as a living room, a kitchen, and a bedroom, depending on the layout and wishes of the owners. Mobile partitions, which can be moved and rearranged, give residents the opportunity to change the interior at any time. Let's look at what ways of dividing space exist.
A simple and practical way is to set up a large shelving unit and fill it with books, vases, plants and other essentials that are always looking for a place in the house. The rack can be high and extend right up to the ceiling.
The bedroom is separated from the rest of the space by a bookcase with a conventional doorway. This solution is suitable if there are no children in the house: after all, the parent's bedroom should be fenced off whenever possible.
Another example with a rack up to the ceiling, however, only half full. This method visually divides the room, but leaves the feeling of a single space. And a lot of light always penetrates.
Also, the rack can be low, only conditionally dividing the space. It is convenient to move such a piece of furniture to the wall, restoring integrity to the room if desired.
Curtains, as a rule, separate the bedroom space in studio apartments. This method is not suitable for all interior styles. The Scandinavian and eco-style, as well as eclecticism, make such a decision most harmoniously. They do not accept his minimalism, art deco, classics.
In a 46 m2 Swedish studio apartment in Gothenburg, the bedroom area is also separated by curtains.
This type of partition is very popular when separating the kitchen from the living area. From this bar, you can safely watch TV, preferring it to the sofa.
Designer Elena Ostapova put a partition, on one side serving as a TV stand, and on the other as a bar counter.
The look is classic and popular. A great variety of partitions are currently offered: sliding, textured, transparent, on wheels. A decent partition can be chosen for any style. The only negative is that it is not so easy to dismantle it if you are tired of it.
Sliding partitions are a great invention that saves precious meters. Wanted - created an additional room, wanted - removed all obstacles. Sliding partitions are, as you can see, in the picture, folding like a fan, and there are single-rail or double-rail. Partitions on rails are definitely stronger and more stable, and they also provide better heat and sound insulation. Soundproofing is especially important when there are children in the house.
An interesting type of partitions is glass: it visually enlarges the space, leaves it visually open and light, although it also performs the functions of sound and heat insulation. You should not be afraid of such partitions. A situation in which you stumble upon it and it breaks into millions of pieces is almost impossible. Such partitions are made of special toughened, impact-resistant glass, its thickness can be up to two centimeters. In any case, such a partition is not the best idea if there are small children in the house who may not notice it and suffer. If, nevertheless, you decide on it, then you can pay attention to the frosted glass, or make only the upper part of the partition transparent. Of the minuses - the inability to hang a picture (although we know how to do it without nails!)
Screens, as an interior item, appeared a long time ago. They were invented in the east and were actively used there, and fashion came to Europe only in the seventeenth century. Screens in the bedrooms served as partitions for changing clothes. Nowadays, more and more mobile partitions are moving from bedrooms to living rooms and serve not only as a practical, but also as a decorative element.
There are even screens with hooks and hangers for clothes, which solves the always topical issue of storage.
Well, most of all we liked the mirror screen. This is what will truly visually expand the space.
