Room dividers are not just for those living in studio apartments; they can have a great affect in any space. When you want to segment, or partially segment, a room, you can put up a wall or half wall, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s much simpler and easier to add a room divider. There is a need for division of space and use, while maintaining flexibility and a sense of openness.
The divider you choose can be something as simple as a bookcase you already have or something artistically designed like the dividers we offer. Maximizing your space, while keeping your home comfortable, is key to loving where you live. Here are some ideas to consider when setting up your rooms:
Bookcases make excellent room dividers for a more architectural look that also provides great storage. Open bookcases (those with no backs) are light and airy in feel, but standard cases will provide a level of privacy and are a great idea for blocking off a bedroom area. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s very important that these cases be bolted or otherwise stabilized so that they canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be pushed over.
For a lighter look and more flexibility than book case dividers, room screens provide a more solid look than curtain dividers, but are movable and highly decorative. Shoji screens offer a clean yet exotic look that can sit on the floor or be hung from the ceiling. Paneled screens can be painted, mirrored or dressed with photographs, small paintings or fabric. These traditional room dividers are the most personalized and decorative of the category.
For a more expensive option, panel track systems usually used on windows can also be used as room dividers. These offer a modern, high-tech look that is attractive and functional. Cover up a kitchen wall or the bedroom area. Panels are modern looking yet provide a great deal of privacy without totally blocking the light. This is an excellent option for those looking for a clean look in their space. Installing the tracks that the panels hang from could require the help of a handyman.
