Interior Design Tips: How to divide open concept living

So many of us love open-concept living. In fact, with the popularity of loft living, one open large room for all sorts of living places is not that unique. The key is to divide us a space in a way that doesn’t take away from that open concept. One easy way is to use something low and long to define different areas. In one large open space this low bookcase is perfect and the best part, it’s practical storage – you may even be able to use it as extra seating. Room dividers aren’t just for large spaces. Studio apartments tend to be on the smaller side but a room divider that provides a little privacy for your sleeping quarters is a must! I love this open bookcase that allows for TV placement on one side and storage on the bed side. Or how about this clever cabinet and glass window to define the kitchen from the entry? Screens are another great way to separate spaces like these colored screens hung from the ceiling.

A sculptural bookcase is artsy and practical. Fill it up with stuff or leave it blank. It always makes a statement. So here’s your take away… walls aren’t the only way to divide up space. Keep it low transparent or both and one space will become two! Thanks for watching this little design tip. We’ll have lots more design tips coming soon so don’t forget to subscribe!
