Strangely, living in a small home ignites two totally conflicting sides of your personality. There's the part of you that needs the house to feel as open as possible, fearing claustrophobia, and there's the part of you that still wants to eke out lots of privacy—who doesn't crave a little alone time? The temporary solution to these warring feelings is often a room divider, which can be extended or folded up depending on the situation. The permanent option is to build a very solid, view-blocking wall to separate the space, in hopes that you will always like it sectioned off that way. But there's also an in-between remedy that no one really talks about, one that might just address both emotions all at once. We like to call it the wood slat partition. All it is: a row of wood boards that extend from floor to ceiling, mimicking a wall, but with gaps of space every couple of inches.
A wood slat partition is a major highlight in a Brooklyn home by architecture and design firm General Assembly. "Ours was made of solid walnut pieces, combined at a vertical joint about halfway up each piece. The detailing on it is part of what makes it special," says founder Sarah Zames. The team had design and fabrication workshop First Third build and install it; Sarah recommends hiring a millworker rather than a contractor if you want a similar look.
First Third started with boards that were much thicker and wider than the end result. Of course, milling them to be perfectly straight and true, then making custom lap-joint cuts to put the pieces together, is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Luckily, there is a less complicated (albeit less detailed) approach if you want to do this on your own, says First Third co-owner Craig Montoro. To start, you'll need to make sure the floors and walls where you plan to put the partition are level. Next, head to your local lumberyard in search of the straightest, highest-quality pieces of lumber available. (Warning: Craig says it may take time for you to pick through the pile, hoping that no one will ask you to leave.) Don't fret if each piece isn't totally perfect. "Increasing the spacing between the slats would help make the unevenness of the gaps caused by bowed or warped lumber less obvious," he notes.
To attach each slat to the ceiling, First Third fabricated an extra piece—a "collar," Craig calls it—with comb-like wood teeth that the boards fit snugly into. At the base of the partition, the team used dowels to align and secure the pieces without using any visible fasteners. If you take the DIY approach, Craig says the simplest way to install the partition would be to use the classic "toenailing" carpentry technique: driving nails at an angle through the board and floor/ceiling from either side of the slat. The only thing left to do is sit back and enjoy having the best of both worlds.
In our time of open layouts and studio apartments space dividers become more and more popular because we admit that some spaces should be more private and some zones need to be separated. Various dividers have different advantages and disadvantages and here it’s important to find a proper piece for your interior. Today we’ll have a look at wooden ones and maybe they will fit your home!
A wooden space divider brings much more privacy than other dividers, glass, for example. Yes, it may look bulkier but proper space separation is guaranteed. One more advantage is that a wooden space divider is a cool decor feature that will never go out of style: wood is timeless. There are catchy geometric and other patterned screens, and a vertical plank screen will add visual height to your space. Ready to have a look at some examples?
Solid Wooden Screens
A solid wooden screen is feature that you won’t see so often, so it can make your interior stand out. Besides, such a screen bring total privacy and proper space division, which is essential for many homes. Choose a piece with cool wood texture and look to make it double as a decor feature, and it will never go out of style as wood is timeless.

Plank/Beam Wooden Screens
The most popular feature is a wooden plank screen, it’s a very trendy space divider. Planks can go vertically or horizontally but as I said above – vertical ones are more preferable as they add visual height and help to see the space as a whole, while horizontal ones can make the ceiling look lower. If you want more privacy, make wider planks or keep a distance in between them but remember that they won’t let much light in and your spaces won’t feel that airy. If you want more light and less separation, go for wooden beams – they will just hint on space division.

1/ Measure the height of your room, from floor to ceiling.Subtract inches from that measurement (you’ll be adding 3/4in to the top and bottom later). Cut your 2x2 lumber to that measurement. Check the floor to ceiling height in a few different spots where your room divider is going, just to make sure it’s the same all the way across. You may have some slight variations you’ll need to adjust for since older homes aren’t always % square. To decide how many 2x2’s you’ll need you’ll need to determine how far apart you want your slats to be. Mine are 2 1/4in apart.
2/ Cut six 1x4’s the total length of your room divider. Take one and screw your 2x2 slats to it at one end, making sure you maintain a uniform distance between your slats (again, mine were 2 1/4 in apart). I used 1 1/4 in screws and did two on each slat, one at the top of the 1x4 and one at the bottom. Do the same on the other end of your slats. If you want a more clean, finished look, you can use a finish nailer instead.
3/ Flip the slat wall over carefully (you may need a friend to help, depending on how large yours is), and then screw in the other two 1x4’s to the opposite side, sandwiching the 2x2’s in the middle. I put one screw in this side so the screw goes in between the ones you did on the other side. Again, repeat for the opposite end of the slats, so that both ends are sandwiched between 1x4s.
4/ Rip the final two 1x4’s down to 3 inches wide, and attach these two to the top and bottom of the slat wall, creating a top and bottom plate for your wall. (if you don’t have a table saw you can skip this step, the top and bottom plates will just extend 1/4 in beyond either side, since the total width of the sandwiched top is 3in, and a 1x4 is 3 1/2 in wide)
5/ Tilt your room divider up, and screw up into the ceiling in a few places to secure it. If you want to screw it into your floor as well for a more permanent wall, you can do that. I didn’t want to damage my flooring so I didn’t attach mine at the bottom. You can also screw into the wall through the slat on the end too, to secure it more thoroughly.
The more she thought about it, the more she made herself feel that Godwin was her only hope. She was terribly out of breath. The walls pressed against her in the same way as the body of the girl Econ pressed. Leaves have fallen from the trees, autumn has replaced summer. The cool afternoon breeze blew over the girl's body.

In public, just call me Adrian. And in general, behave like a person. I will try to give you some idea of human behavior, although I myself am not very good at it. Anyway, people shouldn't know that you are a gynoid. This will give rise to a bunch of unnecessary questions, and most importantly, they will arrange a hunt for you.

And then I could not take my eyes off him. an indescribable force pulled my gaze to him. at times kilovolt discharges ran all over my body, and I could hardly restrain myself so as not to lose consciousness or do something irreparable. And he, still smiling affectionately, patted me on the shoulder, and asked in surprise what was the matter with me.
