Partitioning or creating space in your apartment has become popular, especially if there is more than one resident working from home. However, when you live in an apartment you need to be careful not to install any solutions that will cause damage to the walls or interior. Here are some clever, non-permanent apartment partition tips to give you both privacy and space for work and leisure in your apartment home.
1. Adding Portable Screens
Splitting up a room with portable screens is an effective way to create the partitions you need in your apartment. The good news is that portable screens don’t have to be boring and dull. There are plenty of decorative pieces that not only add functionality by clearly defining spaces but look amazing as well. For example, foldable white timber screens add brightness and appeal to any room without compromise.
2. Bookshelf Divider
A bookshelf can do more than just store books. A large enough bookshelf can serve as a divider that is a stylish addition to any room and is one of the most effective ways to break up the space and separate different areas. Not only do you get an effective wall to break up the room, but you also get some additional storage that comes in handy. Bookshelves come in all kinds of styles and colors today.
3. Furniture Divider
You may even be able to divide spaces with your existing furniture – giving you the sense of a separate space and more privacy for your lifestyle or work. It may just be about moving around furniture to create clear demarcations between rooms or between areas within a room. For example, moving a desk and table to a corner of the room with a couch to close it off can help to create a distinct workspace that may not have existed before.
4. Faux Plants
Faux plants or plant walls are also good ways to section off a space and make it more private – whether for leisure or work. They can help you create a beautifully defined workspace while simultaneously serving as a statement piece in your apartment. They also do not block out light and depth – ensuring your apartment continues to look bright and airy. For example, large faux plants pots placed together in a line create a well-defined space, while paying homage to nature by infusing a sense of peace and calm.
Curtains are not just to embellish your windows. They also serve as an excellent way to close off spaces from others. You can choose any type, color and curtain style to suit your needs. For example, sheer curtains not only look gorgeous, but they also allow light to wash through your apartment without blocking it out and making the room feel small and confining.
Temporary partitions are the ideal choice for creating privacy, defining spaces and directing movement without requiring you to make any permanent, structural changes to the space. Use these smart ideas to help you create visually appealing partitions in your apartment for both work and leisure. Be sure to get solutions that are sturdy but do not cause damage to the walls or that could tip over. Be sure the solution is safely installed and well built. Seek the help of a professional installer as needed.
