Most people believe that there is no other way to separate spaces in their homes without walls. When you hold onto the idea that a wall must separate two spaces in the house, then you deny yourself the creative beauty of other separation ideas. Also, you will have denied yourself the opportunity to cheaply partition the house.

So, here are five ways to separate a room in your house WITHOUT installing a drywall. 🙂

1. Glass doors.

These are the new best ways to create partitions between spaces, especially when you want there to still be some sort of continuity between the two rooms. You can have glass doors inserted between the patio and the living room. That way, there will be a boundary between the inside and the outside, as well as the airy feeling which comes with letting a little of the outdoors into the home. Glass doors can also be used to separate a library from the main living room, to demarcate a dining room, to enclose the shower in the bedroom, and many other similar uses.

2. Creative Artwork.

When you hear about creative art, the first thing that comes to mind is probably a painting or some sort of sculpture. But the truth is that there is so much more to explore when it comes to getting artworks that can separate different areas of the home. One of the latest technologies being used to create partitions is laser cut metal screens. You can partition in any part of the home. The laser cut process is as follows:

  • Measure the length and height of the interior space which you want to partition with laser cutting technology
  • Contact laser cutting experts and look at the available laser cut screen designs
  • Choose a cutting design that would look beautiful in your home
  • Pick the screen metal that will give you a durable screen
  • Wait for the company to customize the screen using a metal laser cutter, and bring it for the installation

There are hundreds of cool designs that you can choose from. When natural light illuminates the gaps in the design, the result is spectacular. The finishing colors will depend on your preferences.

3. Blinds.

Blinds are another simple and effective way to create barriers between different rooms. You can have blinds installed between a living room and a study room to give privacy to the person trying to get some work done. If you have kids that share a room then you can have the blinds installed to partition the space between the beds for private sleeping spaces. The choices which you have to make here include whether you want blinds made from fabric or complete wooden shutters.

4. Curtains

These are the most underrated partitioning tools in the modern home. Perhaps it is because most people believe that the only use for curtains is covering windows. However, with the right length and color of curtains, you can partition areas of the home, such as the sitting room and an attached dining room y. You can even get creative with the curtains and have a number of them hanging from the same rod, so that the person looking at them will be think that they are covering an opening.

5. Television backdrop.

This could work perfectly in homes that have an open floor kitchen plan and they want to create the feeling that the living room gives way to the kitchen. You just need to strategically place a wooden TV backdrop where the wall would partition the two spaces. This way, everyone will start thinking about the backdrop as the physical end of the living room space and the beginning of the kitchen space. Other pieces of furniture that can be used as physical barriers include wooden framings and all manners of storage shelves.

These are some of the innovative and cheap ways to create barriers inside the home without actually erecting walls inside the space. It is important to ensure that when you are using non-fixed structures, such as TV backdrops and wooden shelves, that they are stable enough to avoid accidents in the home.

Your house is a place where you feel comfortable and relaxed. You should make it a nice space to live in. Decorating your own home contributes creativity and imagination. It helps you to learn new valuable skills that you can carry with you for years to come!
