3 Creative Room Divider Ideas


Whether a small space needing to be portioned out or a large, oversized room that requires sectioning. It can be boring to set up the same old dividers, or leave a space open and intimidating. Here are a few ideas for those looking for a creative way to section their living spaces.

1. Bookshelves


Create a sense of division by using a bookshelf to break up a large, open space. Go small and extend a partial bookshelf from the wall or go big and create a wall of reading material. Bonus tip: keep bookshelves looking less cluttered by color coordinating bookends.

2. Decorative Hanging Art


Nothing screams unique style like finding that one-of-a-kind hanging art that will create a stylish divider from one space to another as well as offer some artistic eye candy for your guests.

3. Windows and Doors


Not just for the coziest of cottages anymore, a repurposed door or window can still look classically chic and worn, or give a fresh modern twist for any decorating style. Simply decide which look is right for your home and use these natural dividers, which are all the rage right now.

  2. I forgot to mention that this is a UK website that also offers the largest range of shoji screens and decorative screens. Customers can decide on the design, colour and size - not seen this before.
