Built-In Bookcases

Partitions do not have to be plain stud walls. Consider enlarging the width of the existing stud wall and turn the partition into a bookcase instead. Bookcases make ideal partitions because they give definition but lack a sense of permanence, which helps keep the open feeling of the floor plan. Run the bookcases to within a foot or two of the ceiling, and keep them open on the top. You have the option of having the bookcase be accessible from either side or just fitting the living room side with shelves while the kitchen side remains flat. Use the flat wall to install a desk, cabinets or shelves for more storage in the kitchen.

Replace With a Screen

Using Shoji screens is to make your rooms more privacy and meaningful without darkening or closing in the kitchen. Japanese Shoji screens are more popular than others since they are made of light woods and stretched rice paper. Install them to the perpendicular walls, and stretch them across the entire area with only an opening for a door, or install them as a screen across one section. Shoji screens make the transmission of light through the paper panes and suitable with small or dark kitchens that might feel too closed in with a more traditional partition.
