Original zoning ideas

Options for the introduction of interior partitions in the interior of a sufficiently large number. They can look like a wall, and can only half-zone the space or perform a purely decorative function. But most often they are used as zoning facilities. We offer more details about the interesting options for interior partitions.

Material selection

Depending on the functional features of interior partitions, one or another type of material is selected. Consider the main types, their technological properties, pros, cons and price segment.

Interior partitions are made from such materials:

  • drywall;
  • brick (hollow, full, ceramic, clinker,);
  • glass blocks;
  • aerated concrete blocks;
  • glass;
  • expanded clay blocks;
  • polycarbonate;
  • acrylic;
  • tree
  • metal;
  • combination of different materials.


Partitions in the form of walls, made of brick (solid, clinker or hollow), are the most difficult. But their durability and sound insulation is unrivaled.

Solid brick provides the ability to mount massive shelves and cabinets. It is possible to fasten different structures to partitions made of hollow bricks, but the fastenings should be more reinforced, as there is a chance of falling into the empty space.

The construction of clinker and traditional brick has a fairly large weight, because it should be mounted solely on the site of the concrete floor. It is advisable to consult with a specialist here, but anyway, such an occupation is time-consuming, rather expensive and requires additional processing (plastering, wallpapering or painting). Clinker partitions, as a rule, are not plastered, using its decorative effect in its original form.

Faster and less expensive than the construction of interior partitions from traditional bricks will be their installation from ceramic materials 11 cm thick. Such a design can withstand hinged shelves and cabinets, but in the mount it is necessary to use spring fonts specifically for porous bricks.

Glass blocks (luxury)

A partition of glass blocks transmits light to different segments of the room. Such a device is strong enough, durable and durable; Often it is an expressive decorative accent and stylistic element of interior decoration.

Aerated concrete blocks

Highly relevant material for inexpensive and fast erection of partitions. Its main advantage is high flexibility in creating surfaces of various shapes. Unlike bricks, the interior partition of cellular concrete has low sound insulation.
Lightweight aggregate blocks
Partitions made of this material is easy to build. They have sufficient strength for hanging cabinets, shelves. Products made of expanded clay blocks are durable, wear-resistant and perfectly absorb sound.

Interior plasterboard partitions

Plasterboard constructions favorably affect the room microclimate. They are able to give and absorb moisture contained in the air. Such partitions are erected quickly, do not need plastering - just enough to putty the joints.

The disadvantage of drywall walls is that they do not withstand heavy objects. In case of such a need, the fastener must be located inside the structure and mounted to metal profiles. Another disadvantage of drywall - low impact resistance.


Wooden partitions of various modifications can be as an expensive product, and very budget - it depends on the type of wood. But anyway, the elements of wood in the interior always look luxurious and noble, they bring comfort, warmth of nature and a touch of uniqueness.


Glass for partitions is used in the case when a clear zoning with the spread of light in all functional areas is necessary. Generally opaque or transparent partitions make from especially tempered red glass, safe for the person.

Glass designs with laser engraving, photo printing, drawing or in stained glass style will be the highlight of your interior.

Combination of materials

The most commonly used combinations of materials in creating partitions are glass inserts in a wooden or metal frame.

Partition rack

An excellent combination of aesthetics and functionality - using the rack as a partition. This beautiful piece of furniture and spectacular storage system also zones the room. The advantage of this design is that it can be equally comfortable to use on both sides of a divided space.
