Partition walls are always tricky to design because they have to respect the size and context of a space. They also have to be stylish and represent the overall theme of your home interior. Therefore, they can be quite challenging to design properly. So today, we’ll be featuring 5 ways you can tackle the tricky partition wall design in your home renovations.
1. Entrance partition walls
No matter what size of a home you live in, it’s always common courtesy to design a partition wall along one side to evoke a sense of privacy in your homes. These walls are tricky to design because most of them are dependent on the size of the entrance. Some people design it in the form of shelving, some in the form of laser cut screens with custom designs, and others in the form of looking mirrors to give the illusion of more space.
2. Centralized partition
If your home interior layout is designed in a way that there’s a half-partition wall smack in the middle of the space, you need to design it in a perforated fashion. Take the media wall in this image for example – it clearly separates two distinct areas yet still manages to evoke a spacious vibe. This is because it has stylish perforations that create transparency in the whole design.
3. Counter/bar seperations
Sometimes, you only ever need a half-sized element instead of a full-scale feature partition wall. Kitchen islands, countertops and bars are a great example of this technique. This image features a counter-come-bar which has been specifically designed to evoke a sense of separation within the context of the rest of the space. It’s a clever idea and is now extensively used in Singapore.
4. Show stopping end walls
Most homes in Singapore are big on enhancing the circulation space because of their small real estate foot prints, which is why going for stylish partition walls can be a bit challenging. In such cases, it’s better to opt for a show stopping accent wall to create a full-stop effect. It can end in a large circulation area or corridor and can replace the partition area nicely.
5. Full stop furniture
Sometimes, you don’t even need a partition wall to keep all your spaces separated and individualized. Most of the times, a nice, stylish furniture set or credenza can do the job just as well. If you take a look at this kitchen, you’ll see how the dining table set against the wall marks the end of the whole kitchen without any additional design elements at all. This is a great technique for when you don’t have any space to spare for a whole wall.
