The simplest element you can have constructed is a partial-height wall. It creates a physical wall separation between spaces but doesn't cut off sight lines. Each side of the wall can be used to anchor furniture placement. You can easily communicate the height and width of the partial height wall to your contractor without hiring a designer or needing a permit.
Horizontal wood slats are being used on both exterior and interior applications, and I can't get enough of the rustic, natural and modern touch they provide. Here they create a simple semi-transparent wall that is elegant and playful.
An artistic flourish to the wood-slat wall is accomplished by changing up the distance between the slats in each component of the wall. The divider wall becomes a point of interest in the room beyond its functional capabilities of division and extra storage (notice the drawers).
