A room divider is a semi-permanent partition that allows for a space to be split up in separate areas. While dividing screens and doors are often used in residential homes, large room dividers are more commonly utilized in venues such as community centers and conference halls, where multiple activities may run concurrently and require separate spaces.  From small wheeled shoji screens to full wall systems, a room divider can be utilized to obscure a smaller area or completely divide a space. A room divider can be made from many materials including fabric, plastic, and even living plants.

How do you use a room divider?

A room divider, as the name suggests, can be used to divide rooms into smaller and more efficient areas. It is most commonly found in individual residences, being used as a piece of decor to showcase one’s personal style in a home, to conceal cluttered items, or to provide a sense of privacy.

How do I make a room divider?

There are many DIY room divider options such as utilizing a clothing rack and curtain, a bookshelf, or wire mesh screens. One can take panels of wood or frosted glass and fasten them together with piano hinges for the accordion-like appearance of typical room dividers. Another way of making a room divider is to thread thick rope through wooden plates mounted in the floor and ceiling. This is a way to divide spaces without completely concealing the areas from each other.

What is a room divider?

A room divider is a piece of furniture positioned in a room to separate and define areas within that single space, like a screen. A room divider can be made from a variety of materials and can be portable or temporary given the environment it exists in. Other objects and furniture pieces such as a shelf or collection of plants can also act as a room divider.
