Think of your favorite space. Describe all the objects in it. What if now you get rid of the dividing wall. What is left? Does it still look like a room? What elements are still intact to distinguish them as space?
The wall is arguably one of the easiest and most recognizable architectural elements to reinforce a room. Let’s develop this idea and identify other ways to determine the perception of a space. Let’s look at some of the following tips for creating your home spaces without relying on a barrier.
Level Comparison Wall
Floor level changes in the house may be more expensive than flat floor plates. It may also be less calculated by people who have difficulty climbing stairs. However, level changes are essential to strengthen the character of a space.
Floor level changes can mark specific zones in open spaces. It can also help establish the hierarchy of space. This is indicated by the absence of an insulating wall between the sitting room and another adjacent space. It only revolves around one or more stairs that distinguish the two areas.
In this room, there is a material change at the ceiling level, while the floor remains consistent. This material change is a smart visual trick to describe the inner zone of the house with an open space plan.
If you can not make a variety of materials in your space, try using paint to add dramatic effects. Keep the color consistent from the ceiling to the wall. A sharp line reinforces the sleeping area of a nearby window.
For a comfortable seating area, give a larger portion to the ceiling. Colors can remain consistent with this technique. Add some chandeliers that strengthen scale changes and add dramatic effects from this zone.
Structural elements in a house can also be used to reinforce the space. In addition to helping determine the focal point in space, exposed roof beams plus dramatic lighting also adds aesthetics to the flat ceiling.
In most homes, the exposed structural elements are usually specific to roof and floor frames. However, you can also expose the frame on a transparent glass wall.
An easy way to add privacy restrictions near the entrance is to combine a space divider. This special insulation allows visual access to the front door with transparent glass. Insulation is a great way to make architectural transitions between rooms.
For a more modern yet fantastic look, combine the steel frame and wooden blocks that provide the transition between a living room and dining room.
Bright wood is very contrast when combined with dark tile floors, which is a visual cue to the reading room. Note the ceiling changes as well as the floor change.
The use of wood materials on the dining room floor and the transition on the stairs leading to the kitchen show the impression of contrast, as well as reinforced by the material used on the wall. Think creatively about your floor material changes to add character and dynamics.
Insisting on space without a massive wall is most appropriate when applied to a place with no walls at all! This outdoor space relies on a pavement area of ceramics and wood paneling that contrasts with the garden area to give the impression of a space.
