14 creative ideas to effectively separate space

Homify logo Homify 18/6/2017 Swapnil Kangankar

Changing family dynamics, smaller living spaces, and higher land costs have lead to a change in the manner in which modern families use space. The once fixed format of spaces does not allow the desired flexibility and severely restricts the potential of the various spaces in the house. For example, an open plan living room which has the kitchen and the living room allows greater ventilation, space optimisation, as well as connection between the members who cook in the kitchen and members who are present in the living room. However, at the same times, it restricts the users from a clear demarcation of space as well as a hinders the privacy required to hide the mess in the kitchen.

In such a case, creative partitions can be very helpful. Not only do they separate space but also allow the necessary connection as well as privacy. Do you wish to see some creative examples? Read on further to see some of the works executed by our experts.
