Modern homes advocate integration of space. This openness creates an illusion of spaciousness. But still we need to define the space and set the boundaries. Boring wall partition is a big no-no in our chic and contemporary homes. Here we are with some inventively crazy partition ideas to give the home décor a striking face-lift. Have a look and we are sure you will not even think of erecting that wall again to separate space.

​1. Swinging partition

Door has been used as room divider since long, but certainly not in this innovatively fashionable way. Swing the door open and integrate the space and close it to create a wall with beautiful painting imprinted on it. Close or open, this separator will adorn the room in style.

​2. Fashionably functional

In small homes where every square meter of space matters, use the separator to serve a purpose. The creatively designed bar is so gripping that we fail to realize that how quietly it has divided the space.

​3. Step-up the style

This is the most conventional partition especially in minimalist setup. The beauty with wood is that it will never go out of style and will bring classic warmth into the space. Be creative and design your own partition of timber and wood.

​5. Separated from above

Sometimes just a virtual division is enough to separate the space and mark the area. Let there be no walls or no stricture on the floor. Separate the room from above and feel the delusional magic it will create.

​6. Floor difference

Separating the space with floor difference is an interesting concept and if incorporated well, the style quotient of the home will shoot up the sky.

​7. The iron curtain

If the décor is beautiful, flaunt it. Why to hide your beautiful home behind the wall. Instead separate the space with wrought iron grill. It’s a smart and sturdy way to divide in style.

​8. Stack it to show-off

A smart combination of solid and open blocks as a separator will hide something and show a lot. One thing is sure; it will look modern and chic.

​9. Laser-cut wall

This is the trendiest option in partition and can be customized accordingly to suit your style and space. The beauty of it lies in the fact that it creates a division efficiently and artistically and maintains the much needed visual connection too.
