Need to define a room without insulating? The most trendy solution is of course theworkshop style canopy artist who ventilates the spaces while creating the desired separation. Discreet, full of charm and ideal to bring a certain cachet to your interior, the latter can be installed in the four corners of the house.

In an entrance for example, to avoid entering directly into the living room and create a small hallway space. In a master suite, the canopy is also a very good option to separate the sleeping area from the bathroom space, and give you more privacy. And if it does not have a window, this installation will allow natural light to still enter it while retaining maximum brightness.

If you want to open the kitchen to the living room, but you are not very fond of 100% open American kitchens, the glass roof can be the ideal solution: place two that you will space a minimum to partition while maintaining a link between these parts. Finally, you can also adopt a sliding canopy to create an original door between a corridor and a bedroom or an office.
