How to Divide Environments without Walls?

Now everyone has decided to take down everything that is the wall, you know? In smaller and smaller apartments this helps to increase the floor area, improve lighting and air circulation. But of course it brings some problems. One is that if we do not have a good distribution of the furniture and do not use certain “tricks”, that area that got bigger, will be a big mess confused.

So, here are some good examples that show how to divide environments without using walls, maintaining lighting and good circulation:

(Environments may be larger than yours, but ideas work the same way)

In the example above you can see several ideas: 1) the glass partition and the furniture, between the kitchen and the living room; 2) The change of lining between the kitchen and the service area 3) The plaster lining in the dining area 4) The carpet in the living area. All this defines the different environments in a subtle but clear way.

Above, ideas for sharing environments that need some privacy: The 1st photo is a “curtain” made with painted vinyl records. In the fourth photo a simple screen (even if it’s a fake, but it’s worth the example, ok?) And in the 2nd and last photos, slats of wood doing the times of partition blinds.

In the first picture, a blind held by cables occupies the space between the wall and the column;In the 2nd a beautiful panel leaked (I found in Art Maison); On the 3rd, a shelf leaked and the 4th a very original idea: strings stretched (the finish on the floor could improve but the idea is legal).

In the first picture the carpet tells you where the living area ends and the wooden partition (almost a sculpture, very beautiful), gives greater intimacy to the hallways of the house, without disturbing the lighting and creating a “road” of movement. In 2a. Photo another (beautiful) shelf leaked according to

Here is an example of a distribution that struck me as somewhat odd. Note that the living area was not well defined, with the dining table in the middle of the story and the armchairs with poor visibility for the TV. Even more with the kitchen downstairs, the circulating kitchen-dining table will probably mess up anyone who wants to watch the TV.

See in the above environment as the dresser behind the couch, in addition to hiding the back of this, creates another environment and (which may be the dining area, for example) as the sofa set in l + carpet + desk creates a sitting area Separated from the other, near the window.

When distributing the furniture in your environment, think about the circulation between them, the functionality of each one and how to dispose of the furniture without the use of one does not interfere with the use of the other.
