If you make a partition from a material similar to the coating of other walls, then visitors will not even guess that there is still a room behind such a wall. The opposite effect can be achieved by making a partition from a single piece of glass. Then the distinction will be symbolic, and the functional load will consist only of limited sound insulation.

One of the disadvantages of such partitions is that it will not be possible to completely exclude the penetration of smells and sounds, since there will always be gaps between the partition, the floor and the ceiling, which are necessary for the free functioning of the movement mechanism.

With the help of partitions, the space can be expanded or shaped. This elegant method can be used in any room designed to perform several functions at once.

The children’s room, temporarily divided into a study area and a sleeping area, will turn into a large space for noisy children’s games. Also, in the bedroom, such a partition can be used to separate a boudoir or dressing room. A combined bathroom can easily turn into a separate one without losing a centimeter of free space.
