Posted by Ourso Designs in Uncategorized on August 1, 2018
Partition walls and small spaces suit each other well. Often, when we think of partition walls, we think of small spaces as going hand-in-hand. Partition walls are a great way to divide a space without closing it in. They are also a great way to separate a large space.
It has become quintessential to have an open floor plan… so when every room is opened up to another, how do we separate one area from the other? Of course this can be done in a number of ways, like with a detailed ceiling plan or changes in floor material, but another good way to do this is with partition walls. The foyer seen above is a great example that incorporates all of 3 these ways.
This is another great example of a successful partition wall. It allows this house to be more open to the dining room, without having to completely tear out valuable walls for cabinet space.
This partition wall opens up the center stair well. It opens up the stair well, so the user does not feel closed in, as well as, provides a fantastic feature for the room.
This partition wall separates a back entry from a living space, and like the kitchen example above, it uses a half wall to for a bench and storage space.
On to the bathroom. It is very common to use a partition wall to separate the shower space from the rest of the bathroom. We love how this one allows you to walk completely around it, and doesn’t go all the way to the ceiling. It adds a lot of good dimension to the space.
There are so many useful places for a partition wall and so many ways they can look. Here are few more great examples.
