Sometimes the open trend seems to go just a little too far. A cavernous loft can seem cold without any division between spaces, not to mention the lack of privacy. What is a good way to add definition without sacrificing the airy feel or blocking light? While rf power dividers aren’t the answer, there are many interesting choices that add architectural interest, as well as give more function to a large space.
Semi-Transparent PVC Panels
Add the illusion of movement with some wave-shaped PVC panels. Place one or two together to make a wall or space them out for visual interest. These would be appropriate for a home or an office and can be rearranged as your space needs or moods change.
One of the most refreshing options is this divider/headboard/workspace option. It is not only beautiful, but it serves multiple purposes to optimize space. Keep the light throughout the room with the open panels above and preserve privacy with the closed panels below.
A convenient way to create definition between rooms is to use modular blocks. Arrange them with open spaces in between the blocks to maintain natural light throughout the room while still creating separation. Use them to define an entryway or to create a full wall.
Art as a Divider
For the art lover or for someone who wants an easy, mobile way to create separation and privacy, screens depicting famous paintings are a great choice. They are moveable, inexpensive and can add a pop of color to an otherwise neutral space. Screens are an easy way to hide the laundry, storage or dressing areas in an open concept living space. If you always dreamed of living in an art gallery, why not create your own with several panels of different art?
