Borders can be used in numerous ways in a home. In the image to the right two borders can be seen separating a room and identifying an area that furniture belongs in. The border matches the rectangular shape of the dining room table. In the image to the left it can be seen that the border helps to form a boundary between the foyer and the rooms to the left and right. Notice that the species and color of the border and the planks in the foyer match to tie the two spaces together. A properly designed border will find an equilibrium, combining and separating spaces all at once.
