We choose it open on both sides, in order to be able to store objects on both sides. Books, clothes, pretty boxes, plants and various decorative items… There is no shortage of ideas to separate the dining area from the living room, or the office from the sleeping area. Today there are bookcases with door or drawer modules, to arrange as desired. Another system, but just as practical, the stackable cube modules like the Cubits.

For the start of the school year, we recommend the curry yellow, very trendy, to bring pep's and light to the room. And why not a few strips of pretty wallpaper? A small console and two shelves, enough to create a office space delightful. That's it !

3. An elegant screen

Open, they do not spoil the perspectives of the room, and closed, they provide the necessary privacy. We choose them in beautiful colors and materials, preferably natural, with an elegant fall. Fluid and clear, they will let light through in the living room. And to close the sleeping area? We create a very soft cocoon with beautiful curtains in velvet, THE flagship material for the new school year. Quick and easy to install, it is the solution par excellence for dissociate two spaces without doing heavy work.

5. Japanese signs

There are now many different models, sober or colorful, with patterns… They have the advantage of let the light through while cutting opposite. We love their sobriety and their ease of installation, while being less radical than a real partition. When you no longer need them, just fold them over to one side to enlarge the space. Ideal isn't it?

6. A workshop canopy

Positioned in separation from the kitchenette and the living area, it prevents kitchen odors from invading the whole apartment.
