How correctly to divide the room into parts?

Before proceeding to zoning an apartment,you need to pay attention to such things as the shape of the room, the number of windows, the size of the furniture. It is worth knowing that a square room is divided into zones more complicated than a rectangular one. If the room is small in size, then do not overload it with furniture of huge sizes. Especially it concerns a chest of drawers, a bed and a sofa. These three pieces of furniture can be combined in one, setting in the apartment a fold-out sofa bed, inside of which there will be comfortable and roomy boxes for storing laundry and other things needed in the household. Sofa bed is convenient because at night it can be decomposed and has a good sleep on it. The partition is made of such materials as: plastic, gypsum cardboard, glass. In the daytime, in a foldable state, he saves space in the room. Also guests and friends can sit on it. This piece of furniture itself can be the simplest separator of the living room and bedroom, especially if it is on wheels. Then in the afternoon it can easily be rearranged to any place in the room. A bulky section is also better to replace a closet or a closet in combination with a shelving shelf. In addition, they are often used as partitions, and this is one of the ways of zoning the room. Living in a large room, the owners can afford a wider and longer bed, and sometimes - a bed and a sofa at the same time. As for the windows, the division of the room should be done only if they are available. If the apartment has only one window, then from the living room, should not be continuous from floor to ceiling or opaque. Otherwise there will not be enough natural lighting in the room during the day. And this will complicate the process of reading homeowners. Each owner decides for himself which parts are best divided into a room: the same or different, where the bedroom will be located, and where - the living room. But it is best to arrange a bedroom next to the window to make it easier to ventilate it. Another nuance of the sleeping area is its privacy or privacy, so it is better to place the bedroom at the far end of the apartment, which is often adjacent to the window, or to put the bed in the corner of the room if natural light is not so important for the occupants of the home. In an apartment consisting of several rooms, the bedroom should not be located in the passage room, because this circumstance will not contribute to a full and peaceful rest at night. But the living room is usually arranged closer to the entrance to the dwelling. Back to contents</a>

Methods of zoning the room
