5 Room Divider Ideas

Room dividers can be both incredibly practical, as well as elegant. Conjuring up images of opulent regency boudoir room screens to sleek Japanese rice paper room dividers, the style can be as varied as the many functional uses of room dividers.

1. Contemporary Room Divider Ideas
Room dividers allow you to create an amazing and alluring visual impact in any space. Whether your goal is to add privacy, define the use of a room, or enhance the aesthetics of a given area, room dividers are a flexible and stylish solution for creating interesting and dynamic areas. Contemporary designs provide great opportunities for customizing each divider with unique color palettes, artwork, patterns and fabrics in order to get imaginative with each individual space.

2. Room Screens for Privacy
Room divider's are ideal for screening off a space for dressing or any intimate activity, the most obvious reason to use a room divider is for privacy. Many contemporary homes are designed with an abundance of ‘open living’ spaces, providing little privacy. The addition of a room divider can be an affordable, practical, and pleasing option to a stand in wall.

3. Create a Separate Home Office Space
With so many of us now working from home, the need for a separate space in the home to operate as a designated home office is a growing trend. The style of room screens for home offices vary, but they tend to be more open and practical than the more opulent room screen options used in say, a dining room or bedroom. This idea also doubles as a great video call meeting backdrop!

4. Use Bookshelves as Room Dividers
This option is ideal for creating a home office space (as above), but bookshelves doubling as a room divider also work really well in a living space. For interest and character, the bookshelf can also be styled not only with books but with personal pieces such as travel mementos, photos, and art. A good example is a stylish bookshelf that runs behind a sofa to divide an open living space into a defined lounge room and dining room.

5. Add Interest and Style with a Cabinet
A stylish cabinet can introduce interest and colour into almost any room and doubles as a subtle space divider. Utilising a display cabinet also adds space for displaying vignettes and stylish pieces to add colour and texture - as well as elegantly defining the space. In other words, with some imagination - there’s always a place for a stylish cabinet.
