For seamless living-dining zone allocation

Do you have one large space allotted for the living room and the dining room? Then, chances of you considering a living room partition design is very likely. Not sure how to choose one? Well, we’re here to arm you with all the information you need!
Here are a few questions that you need to answer- sit down with your family and arrive at a common decision- then reach out to our team and make it happen!
1. What is the secondary intention with the living room partition?
It is clear that the primary intention with a living room partition is to separate the living and dining zones. What would the secondary intention be? Here are a few options:
Do you have lots of showpieces or little knick-knacks to style your partition with? Consider an open shelf design to place them in- while also separating the living and dining spaces.
- Visual Appeal
Invite drama and texture into your space with a partition with designs, metallic elements, glass, patterns or even life (you’ll see what we mean by that, soon)!
Do you want to place a TV on a swivel stand in the partition zone- to flip it around to view from both the separated rooms? Do you want to shut off, sound proof and separate both the rooms? Think of a functional design for the partition, then.
Some people want to increase storage space in their rooms without blatantly displaying the items in storage. For them, considering a partition with concealed storage spots would be ideal. If you do proceed with this design, push-open cabinets will make the design handle-free and more seamless.
- All of the above?
If you said yes as you read every single point, then integrate all of these styles to create a single partition design with storage, display, functionality as well as storage.
2. What type of partition?
In this question, you have to question if you want a partition that remains fixed or not. Based on the idea you have in mind for the space, choose one of the two below.
These designs remain fixed and immovable. They are recommended for shelving, storage units and patterned partitions.
Do you want to incorporate motion into your divider? If so, would you prefer folding partitions or sliding partitions? Do you need them to be sound-proof too?
Folding partitions are good for soundproof options but are better suited to large spaces and/or traditional or Asian designs. The sliding mechanism takes up limited room and can fit even small homes, suiting contemporary styles.
3. What level of visualisation do you want between the separated zones?
Between the separated spaces, how much do you want to be able to see? This is an important factor to consider when planning for a partition design.
- Complete visualisation
Glass is our only recommendation if you want complete visualisation between the two separated zones. You can keep minimalistic frames, if you’d like to enhance the look.
- Partial visualisation
Most of the partition designs allow for partial visualisation- either due to the design or its contents. This design allows the light to flow through and gives the appearance of a larger space.
- No visualisation
For a completely opaque separation between the two, consider a solid surface like wood, cabinets, glass or metallic partitions.
4. What material do you want to use for the partition?
Material choice must be complementary to your decor in the two rooms. Your options are:
Contemporary and stylish with lots of opportunity for personalisation.
- Wood (natural, plywood or MDF)-
The wood can be in the form of slats, panels, laser cut or solid wood. It could be made to suit almost any style of decor.
Ideal for industrial style of decor and can be in a metallic colour of your choosing.
A great choice if you want a splash of colour in your room design.
- Living Structures-
Don’t be confused, you read that right! Our top options for a ‘living’ partition would be a large fish tank or even a plant wall.
