Partitions made of glass are an easy way to divide the space, suitable for both large and small apartments. Continue reading to know how to use this technique in different rooms.
ON A PROMINENT PLACE
It is very trendy now to make such partitions – certainly black, ideally from metal, in extreme cases – wooden. Glass should be simple, transparent, without facet and frosting.
A partition made of glass and metal made it possible to create a separate working area, but there is no feeling of isolation from everything that happens in the living room.
In this case, the architect built this structure to get an isolated bedroom, while maintaining the total amount of space and air. There are many disadvantages to this solution: there can be no bathroom and dressing room with a bedroom like that, and no sound insulation. Although if the bedroom is a guest room, this is a good alternative to a sofa in the living room.
TURN ON THE COLOR!
It’s a great idea to install a colored glass partition in the bathroom. An accent glass door in a classic interior looks amazing.
This partition of glass blocks sets the necessary rhythm for the white interior. Since the area of such a partition is large enough, it can become the main accent of the interior.
This is an interesting solution for zoning of the room. It changes the perception of space, preserving the architecture of the premises. With the help of a glass partition, the author of the project managed to add a modern touch to the classic interior. But this option is hardly suitable for apartments with small windows and low ceilings .
AT THE TOP
Now designers use glass partitions and high interior windows in almost every project. In this case, the architect had the task of separating the bedroom from the bathroom, keeping the light.
EVERYTHING IS CLEAR
Glass is a cold material. And using large sliding partitions in combination with metal inevitably creates the uncomfortable effect in a residential interior, even the feeling of office space. Therefore, next to the glass, warm materials look good – such as wood and leather.
In the case below, zoning was carried out delicately. The author of the project separated the living room from the dining room. The turned vertical glass partitions became an element of sophisticated decor, which probably can be found in other parts of the interior.
Large glass partition from floor to ceiling is both a space divider and a decorative element. In the picture below it immediately attracts attention with its design and pattern: corrugated glass, black metal frame with an interesting ornament. And even the contrasting red wall does not distract attention, and looks like a perfect background.
This partition is original, and reminds of a sculptural composition. Blue and yellow colored glass gives the interior the spirit of the 1950-1960s.
One of the most common cases is to use a glass partition to separate the kitchen and the dining room. In this project it allows you to visually hide the working area of the kitchen, and bring your attention to the elegant graphics of the partition. A clean, minimalistic solution: black metal, milky walls and warm wood.
The authors of the project found a good solution in order, on the one hand, to separate the kitchen into a separate room, and on the other, to leave natural light in the dining room. The sun passes freely through the glass, dividing the space into two zones. Now, sitting at the table, you can admire the blooming garden without leaving your home. It is great that not all details of the kitchen are visible – the lower part of the partitions is made of metal. If, for example, tables are cluttered with dishes or work surfaces are not tidy, this will not ruin the whole look.
In addition to transparent partitions for zoning the space, you can use colored glass, tinted or decorated with ornaments. It can be a landscape, a geometric ornament, or a marble pattern. Here, the architect divided the office space with the help of glass partitions.
Now it is very popular to use glass partitions in a classic interior. Here, this solution is appropriate, since the decor itself is not damaged, but simply supplemented. And the functional problem is solved – zoning the space. Be careful: if you install partitions, use only dark gray or black metal. You can supplement them with glass with a pattern, as they did in the 1960s.
SEE THE LIGHT
Zoning with translucent or transparent partitions is a great opportunity to divide the room without breaking it into small rooms, preserving the natural light. This interior, bright and full of air, is a beautiful example. The classic room with stucco molding and parquet was rethought with the help of modern furniture. The combination of glass, the rounded shapes of the lamps, the backs of chairs and the right angles of the partition frame looks great.
