Gone are the days when homes came well equipped with precise demarcations to mark the end and start of rooms. Wide spaces may, in some cases, be, well too wide which is when it is essential to divide them. Resorting to the age old technique of buildings walls is passe' in today's time. 

Here is where you can let your creativity flow, mixing and matching elements as well as colors to create a welcoming space. 

Pick out some of your favorite ideas from this ideabook and tell us which one made it to the thresholds of your home 

​1. The glass wall

Create two rooms with the magic of a single wall. For an added sense of opulence, opt for reflective surfaces as is the case in this brilliantly divided room. Team it up with white hues or lighter shades so as to not overpower it.

​2. Potted plants

Venetian doors have been used as the ideal partition unit for quite some time now. Not only do they partition the areas of your choice, but also add an aesthetic sense to any wall they touch! Keep the blinds open or close them up if privacy is what you seek. 

​4. Concrete wall

 If the previous wall does not appeal to you, then there's nothing wrong in falling back on the basics. Divide your rooms with concrete walls. Pick out a color that complements the colors in your home. 

5. Meet me halfway?

Here comes a very innovative idea that puts all misconceptions about partition walls at bay. The space between the two halves of the wall can be used as a stand or showcase depending on your choice. Pick out contrasting colors for best results. 

6. Furniture

Light furniture such as this adds a sense of modernity to the room. On entry into the room, the functionality of the furniture as a partition isn't the first thing that comes to mind. This is precisely where the beauty lies. 

7. Sliding doors

Sliding doors go hand in hand with blinds as this next partition idea demonstrates. Either blinds or sliding doors work by themselves as well. Stick to neutral hues such as brown or cream for best results. 

8. With a kitchen island

To make full use of a partition, look to creating a kitchen island such as this. Not only are you left with well defined spaces but also a fully functional kitchen top.
