Why would you want to have a wall inside your house when you could have a wall... made of windows? Lately I've been seeing lots of interiors that use steel windows (and doors) as room dividers. It's sort of a genius solution; a wall of windows clearly delineates separate spaces, but still lets light (and views) flow through. And if you need a little privacy, you can always install a curtain behind the windows, as in the photo above. It's the best of all possible worlds. And it's really, really pretty.

This space from Nate Berkus includes a window between the kitchen and adjacent dining room. The house is visually open, but the kitchen still feels like its own space.

A huge sliding steel window is such an elegant way to separate space. Spotted on Nova Te Asesora.

This space from Trendland is pretty incredible... and a glass divider preserves the openness of the space, while still creating separate rooms.
