Wood slatted room dividers create a small library or sitting room in an open loft.Adding uplights and some greenery to a slatted room dividing wall create a zen vibe.The wood slats of this contemporary home were stained in a rich black tone. Each slat rotates to close off the space completely or open it up as shown.This room divider hides the stairwell.
All it takes to pull this look off is a little imagination. Start by going around your apartment and looking into the various possibilities available to you. Consider existing shelving. tabletops or other surfaces that could use a makeover. These days. many minimalist looks even include larger artworks that have been propped up on the floor as a style statement.
There's actually a psychological basis for why this occurs. It has to do with the way our brains process information. They aim to pick up on as many patterns and repetitions as possible. so the mirroring effect of symmetrical design makes those rooms very easy to figure out. In asymmetrical spaces. the patterns are less immediately obvious. so it takes our brains a bit longer to process them and ultimately makes them more interesting.
Remember wall decals? They aren't just for kids' rooms anymore. Today's wall decals — rebranded under the term removable wallpaper — are a great way to make a big design statement for relatively little effort and upfront cost. With a press-and-stick installation method. plus the ability to peel the design off and throw it away at the end of your lease. this method should be a go-to pick for any renter.
