Ways to separate your living and dining room

Open floor plans have been in vogue for some time now. What’s not to love about large open spaces, right? However, a lot of folks who live in homes like this will tell you that it can feel a little ‘too open’ sometimes. Demarcating spaces and installing room dividers can make spaces cozy, and give you some much-needed privacy.

Believe it or not, installing the proper lights can make the difference between an ordinary and a well-designed space. Also using different toned lighting can help demarcate spaces, and highlight certain features of your home. A hanging light over your dinner table, for instance, sets apart the dining area by casting a warm glow around the table. You can consult home interior designers in Chennai to create an optimal blend of natural and artificial lighting.

Furniture can themselves act as separators for your open floor home. Using long-seaters and sofas, facing away from the kitchen can help differentiate these zones. It also helps to have varying colour palettes for the areas. Make sure you choose complementary colours, while colour blocking. It could end up looking garish, otherwise.

Display Units as Room Partition

Another style statement in cordoning off units is displayed shelves. They act as dividers, serving as a partial wall. These shelves can be see-through, have frosted glass, or even have opaque panels. Also you can place books or art pieces on the shelves that go with the rest of your room’s decor.
