You can divide the functional zones of a studio apartment using any decorative partition, and its decor can be very diverse: patterns, carvings, as well as more ordinary options - interesting wallpapers with photos, paintings, or just bright combinations of contrasting colors.
Some, when dividing functional zones, prefer curtains or screens, which looks very beautiful and delicate, but this option is not suitable for every zone. These products are made of fabric and therefore have the ability to absorb odors from the kitchen, so they should not be used to separate the kitchen and living room or kitchen and bedroom. Screens are more suitable for dividing a bedroom and any other area except the kitchen.
