Divide and Conquer Your Small Space

It may be the case for you that your home is not a large or spacious one. Sometimes you are stuck with a small place, which requires regular house clearance in order to have the desired space. In other cases, you can utilise a handy trick and implement a partition wall, which gives a room a more spacious feel.

While a house renovation, thorough property clearance and expensive builders may not be in the budget, you can achieve a new look with a beautiful partition wall to divide your space in a smart way. Consider these ideas for your partition wall home improvement project.

  1. Folding screens

Caster screens come with pretty details, making them visually appealing. A smart choice would be one that folds and is on caster wheels, making them easily movable when needed, such as when you want to open up the doors wide for furniture disposal. Look for folding screens that are lightweight. White is a great colour choice because it leaves the space feeling more open.

  1. Stacked shelves

If you have to deal with limited space, another great option is to stack cubed shelves to divide the space between two living areas. Adding visual elements, such as vintage or modern trinkets, books and other decorative items can keep the space beautiful, while achieving the goal of keeping two living areas separate. Keep the clutter on the low side and only put there what is absolutely necessary though. Otherwise you might have to perform home clearance every now and then.

  1. Curtains

This is a great way to add a pop of colour and maintain privacy. The option of opening them up when needed is simple and effective. Go for a bold design, lacy vintage feel or a neutral colour - the choice is all yours. Choose fabric that is not sheer if privacy is of the utmost importance to you and you don’t want others to lay eyes on the clutter that you mean to call junk clearance for.

  1. Mirrored effect

Why not kill two birds with one stone and get the most out of your partition wall? Using a large mirrored wall can help keep a space open, while dividing the space in two parts. If you have a small living space and struggle with flat clearance, chances are this could add an element to getting ready in the morning as well.

  1. Headboard wall

If you are crafty, then you could add a large headboard that acts as a partition wall as well. Building in shelving to the headboard would maximize the use of space even more, providing extra storage space. On the other side, hang a decorative piece to add to the decor.
