Designing Zones Within an Open-Plan Space
Demarcate functional areas without blocking the light with a gorgeous glass divider.

We?ve fallen for open-plan living in recent years. After all, not many of us set aside a room for ?best? any more, nor, with modern building materials, do we need four walls for every area so it can be kept at a comfortable temperature. But while open-plan may bring the space, light, sense of flow and garden views we desire, it can also feel problematic to organise into zones ? and prove distracting to share. Step forward the glass partition. It makes room division simple, yet doesn?t starve spaces of light or compromise the open feel. Decorative, half or full height, framed or barely visible, it can work in every environment. Check out these schemes.

Cordon off the cooking area

A glass partition is a natural solution when a separation of cooking and relaxing spaces is essential. Here, it?s a framed glass version from above counter height to the apex of the striking sloping roof.
Dividing this way will mean that the TV volume doesn?t have to be cranked up to cover up the sounds of extractor fan, dishwasher and running water when the space is being used for multiple activities, but the whole effect is still open. Notice how the cabinetry, partition framing and sofa are linked through colour, while the floor finish is continuous throughout for a pulled-together effect.
Is it over for open-plan kitchens"

Go halves

A half-height glass divider is enough to split office from dining area in this home, with a height change between the two areas and a change in floor finish also helping to separate the zone for one worker from the space for socialising.
A smaller partition like this one is best employed when noise between the areas of an open-plan room isn?t an issue, whether that?s because two activities are equally quiet or the two zones won?t be used simultaneously.

Divide a rectangle

Opening from front to back of a Victorian house can result in a long, narrow room, so a glass partition can help with the proportions of the resulting space without losing any of the benefits of going open plan. Two squarer rooms makes positioning furniture easier, especially if the fireplaces are still in place.
Here, the central doors open with fixed panels each side. If you were considering something comparable for your own home, it would be worth weighing up the pros and cons between something like this and a design with bifolds t...
