Using Moveable Walls for Custom Spaces
Walls that appear and disappear, walls that move like solid ghosts across a room--welcome to the new age of custom spaces. Yes, we’re talking movable walls, walls that are basically hung on wires and lines.
Where could a movable wall really come into play? Live work spaces are the most ideal locations for movable walls, big chunks of space that can be partitioned at will. But movable walls can work for smaller spaces, like large bedrooms that can (or must) be split in two. This can be really effective when dealing with children who share a bedroom but need to split it up as they get older.
But the moveable walls phenomenon is getting even more interesting and we’re seeing uses in small homes and apartments for adding variety to an otherwise limited space. Check out this video for one amazing example:
How Do Moveable walls work?
There are essentially two versions of movable walls. One version works like panels. The essentially fit together and are attached from floor to ceiling. These are the kinds used in auditoriums and conference halls to close off parts of the room for different sized audiences.
There are a number of custom moveable wall makers that can craft a variety of styles and sizes, including walls with windows, etc. You just need to get your dimensions and measurements in place, do some cost comparison and order the right fit for your space.
Another version of movable walls actually hangs on cables and lines. These walls are ingenious and allow for the ultimate in flexibility, opening your space when you need it, or giving privacy when called for. Not only are they flexible but companies like Modernfold make acoustically sound walls, which means that even though they not attached to the ceiling or floor, they can provide considerable acoustic sound control. Modernfold touts their product as the ultimate in versatility and flexibility.
