Room dividers are a great way to maximise space and make one room into two separate ones without the need for bricks and mortar. Here are few unusual examples of room dividers that are not only practical, but stylish too.
This room divider separates the toilet from the rest of the bathroom, but without closing it off entirely. It also has a distinctly artistic feel, giving the bathroom an unexpected focal point.
2. Swivel Dividers
These room dividers double as shelves, but the real genius of them is that they swivel open and shut, allowing for the room to be opened up or closed off at will.
3. Plastic Crates
The only real restriction when it comes to interior design is the limit of your imagination – it takes vision to look a a few plastic crates and see so much potential. This partition fits in perfectly with its surroundings and is a great example of upcycling.
As we’ve already seen, there are all manner of materials that can be used to create a room divider, and none are more simple than rope. This divider, made from jute rope, would work really well in an open plan loft-style space.
Another simple-yet-elegant divider. This one is thin and easy to manoeuvre, making it great for shutting out the rest of the world on a more temporary basis.
6. Metal Beads
These room dividers are made up of strings of metal beads, taking the concept of a beaded curtain to the next level.
7. Wood Partition
Natural wood materials are very much a feature of this room, so the stripped down wood partition can be nothing but at home in this environment.
Those who believe fencing is only for the garden may want to rethink their position. Fencing – especially ones as artistic as the one above – can be used to divide your room as well as your flower patches.
Doors don’t just have be just be used as, well, doors. Quirky and practical, this room divider has been made from old doors that might have otherwise ended up on the scrapheap.
10. Headboard Divider
A headboard so large that it can be used to divide an entire room – an excellent way of isolating the bed from the rest of the space.
Shelves of all sorts can work as room dividers, and they are a quick and easy way to section off part of a room. They can be as elaborate as a floor to ceiling affair, or as uncomplicated as the charming example above.
Yes, that’s right, curtains. Again, another simple solution that allows you to adapt a space to your changing needs as and when required.
13. Wine Rack
If a wine cellar isn’t an option for you, consider a wine rack that doubles as a room divider. At least you won’t have far to walk for the Merlot.
Another multipurpose divider, this example not only functions as a room partition, it also boasts storage space and some greenery to bring a little bit of nature into the home.
