Pony walls are half walls with which the rooms are easily divided: They do not reach the ceiling, but are optically separated. They used to be widely used in different rooms, and now you can keep seeing more of them thanks to their functionality. Let’s look at some ideas on how to incorporate such walls into your home decor.
Pony walls are most commonly used in bathrooms, and that’s no wonder since they’re very organic there. You can use such a wall to separate the bathtub space from the toilet so that it looks harmonious and cool. Showers are often built with pony walls that have glass or no glass inserted into them – that’s very cool. Incorporate some storage space into these pony shelves to store bathroom essentials.
Use a pony wall to separate the sleeping area and closet, home office, or bathroom. Use this wall as a headboard, add storage space, and attach shelves or lamps and sconces. If you want a sleek look, go for a pony wall with no storage. This is a great idea for zoning the bedroom and keeping it spacious and full of light.
Entrance areas / living room
Entrance areas and living rooms can easily be separated from each other by pony walls. We strongly recommend adding storage space and even benches from the entrance side. You can also opt for such a pony wall to hide the stairs and make it safer to use when you have kids. Add plenty of storage or make bookshelves in this pony wall.
Kitchens / dining areas
Divide the living room and kitchen or dining area with a pony wall! It can double as a bar counter and even contain a kitchen island from the kitchen side. Integrate storage space and create a stylish worktop for both rooms.
