Room Barriers

Sometimes the blueprint of your space limits how the room flows. Studios, apartments, and homes can have a room designed for multiple purposes. Whether it is a dining room/kitchen or a dining/living room, you can be faced with architectural barriers. Creating a sense of division between these rooms can help with the flow of the layout. Here are five easy tricks to separating a room by creating your own kind of barriers.

  • Flooring
An easy way to make a distinct barrier between rooms is flooring. Decide what flooring is best for each room and choose different floorings with a transition for them. You may want a soft carpet in a living room, but a hardwood installed in your dining room to make spills easy to clean. Flooring is a very useful way to create a distinct separation in an open floor plan.

  • Half-Wall
A half wall is another practical solution, but you may have to check with your lease depending on where you are planning on installing it. Constructing a half wall is perfect for allowing the room to stay visually open but clearly separating two rooms. Building your own half wall also will enable you to customize how you want the rooms to be divided.

  • Bookshelf
An open bookshelf that you can access from either side is another great barrier. You can add your own touch by adding décor and display items on the shelves to enhance your space. Try to predetermine directional items and how you can best display them on the shelves.

  • Curtain or Folding Screens
Installing a curtain is a great way to add privacy between rooms. Some studios or other spaces may have your sleeping quarters exposed to the rest of the home. By merely adding a curtain, you can easily add privacy to your room as you please. Curtains can even be used in bathrooms to add privacy or closets. Folding screens are also a great, diverse option to consider adding to your home to add privacy.

  • Furniture Direction
This may be the most straightforward option but can easily be overlooked. Simply changing the direction of furniture can create barriers. Turning couches towards the television and using their backsides as a barrier is an easy way to separate rooms.
 
Creating separation in rooms is a great way to make sure your home has a sense of boundaries. Consider adding some of these options to your space if you are looking to separate your rooms. For more great tips and tricks, visit us at https://blog.arizonawholesalesupply.com.
