Partitioning is one solution people living small studio apartments use to mark off specific areas. And room dividers/partitions can be a useful addition for large homes too. That said, let's check out some partitioning solutions below:

1 - Square box partition

A square box partition/divider is a versatile solution for partitioning space while maintaining a feeling of openness between the adjoining areas.

This type of partition - characterized by sections or panels that form a series of boxes - can be made with different types of materials, such as wood, glass or metal.


2 - Wooden divider with vertical slats

A wooden divider with vertical slats combines functionality and elegant design, creating a partition that does not impede natural lighting and the visual continuity between the adjacent rooms.

Vertical slats also create the visual effect of heightening the space, making it feel more airy and bright.

Additionally, this type of divider can be entirely customized to fit your room's specific requirements.

3 - Glass partitions

Glass partitions allow the passage of natural light and partion spaces effectively without sacrificing the visual continuity between adjoining areas.

These partitions are perfect for contemporary or minimalist decors, where the simplicity of lines and good illumination are key elements.

4 - Panel partitions


Panel partitions are a flexible, modular solution for organizing internal spaces. This system allows you to adapt to the different needs and configurations your home may require.

The panels can be easily moved, allowing you to change the lay-out configuration as and when you need to do so.

5 - Sliding partitions


Sliding partitions are very easy to install and are elegant in their simplicity and clean lines.

This is an ideal solution for separating the bedroom from the living room in a studio apartment, for example. Alternatively, use sliding partitions to "hide" a home office and/or service area when not in use. 

As you can see, the use of partitions (like the ones shown here) in living spaces offers a practical solution for defining and organizing home environments, especially if they are small.
