The living room finds its way right in the middle of a home, usually the first thing that is noticed upon entering and the last thing upon leaving. The problem with living rooms however is that they usually come in sizes that we do not anticipate- either it's too large or on the other side of the spectrum- too small. This is why we're taking up this opportunity to show you neat little tricks you can use to separate rooms in your home, without the use of walls that is. 

1. Glass dividers

If you are looking to divide the spaces in your home without the use of walls, then here's an idea for you. You could use glass dividers, bearing in mind that full transparency would cause quite a few accidents, which is why the architects have gone for a design such as this. 

2. Wooden structures

With wooden structures you can't really go wrong. This is attributed to the fact that they can serve multiple purposes including the likes of being a shelf or perhaps a showcase.
