Space. We’ve probably all encountered the age old issue of how to use space effectively in an open plan layout or oversized room. Without a doubt the best solution we’ve found for this interior design headache lies in the humble room divider. The divider offers plenty of different ways to split a room and allocate the space effectively. With that in mind, here’s a roundup of 10 ideas that would make for a dreamy room divider or perfect partition.


The excellent use of a partition here helps to create that cozy cocoon feeling for bedtime.

It also works well to offer up privacy for when you need to get some shut-eye. The sharp and smart angles of the wooden partition partner perfectly against the awkward angles of the ceiling, enhancing the look and feel of the space.

Plants sit on the top edge, offering a breath of fresh air, while the kitchen’s bar area extends from the back of it.

Minimalist Glass

Glass steel partitions are a growing favorite to help maintain privacy in an open plan apartment.

In this room, the home office especially benefits from the division, separate from the bedroom. This could also work well for a dressing room. In order to soften a steely minimalist interior, think delicate drapes.

Wood Combo

This interesting wooden divider is a light touch that merges with the partial wall.

Thus, the wall offers sturdiness for hanging art, but the wooden section is a lovely way to mix up some of the interiors, with a lightness and great visual appeal.

Curtains and Drapes

Keep it soft and simple with sheer curtains between spaces.

What’s more, curtains can be easily tucked away for those times when you want to open up the room. For a luxurious and bold look, opt for decadent style drapes which fall all the way to the floor, calling on old Hollywood glamour.


For an all-natural room divider option, how about bamboo?
