Furniture, which is used as a room delimiter, has several varieties:
- Shelving-partition. Through design with missing back wall. A distinctive feature of an open partition is the convenience of access to the things located on the shelves, for this it is not necessary to bypass the furniture on the other side. This rack only divides the different parts of the room, not completely overlapping. This zoning option makes the room light and transparent.
This method is convenient if you do not need complete isolation of each zone. Shelves of the rack can be used for books, as well as for various trifles, giving the room comfort and individuality: interesting vases, aquarium, photos, flowers in bowls. The partition wall does not visually close the other half of the room, as ordinary furniture does.

- Sliding wardrobe partition. Modern interior partition design, which has sliding compartment doors. It is the most compact and very impressive. Mirror canvases are often used to finish the facades of the doors, which makes any room lighter. Even in the part of the room where the window opening is blocked, it will not be as dark as in the case of a brick wall.
- Two-sided wardrobe. Wardrobe with two facades, dividing a room or studio into two halves. The doors in this design are placed on the front and back sides. It can replace the wall, at the same time performing its main function - storage space. The advantage of this multifunctional building is that there is no need to build a real wall and, accordingly, to buy building materials, which saves money.

In this case, furniture is obtained with a double benefit - the dividing wall is combined with the dressing room.
A double-sided version is possible, then the second room will also have additional storage corners. This structure may have a door that replaces the interior.
- Double-sided partition. Such furniture is not as extensive as in the case of built-in, but also effective in use. On each side the cabinet is equipped with a door or niche. This saves a lot of space as well as money for the purchase of an additional cabinet. From different sides, the cabinet is used in its own way and performs a specific function, in contrast to the blank wall, which is used only for a beautiful picture.

This option of dividing a small room has been known for a long time; students have partitioned off a dorm room to isolate the bed and the dining table.

Each cabinet has shelves in which the sidewall is edged. There should be no mortise and overhead options that the quality does not correspond to such a monumental and durable design. The doors of the wardrobe, when used as a partition, must be wider than one meter, this is necessary for ease of use.
