For those who live in small houses, lofts, or studio apartments, space is a major factor and a lack of space is usually a huge issue. However, if you wish to use the space you have more efficiently or need more privacy or definition in certain areas of your home a room divider of some sort would be a perfect investment.
There are many different types of dividers to choose from, each having their own advantages. Some are more flexible than others; some more expensive than others. Keep reading to learn about the three most popular types of room dividers.
The traditional room divider is sturdy, stylish, and can adequately divide a larger room into smaller spaces. This divider is ideal in a larger area as it takes up a generous amount of floor space. The best selling point about traditional hinged room dividers is they are portable, which means you can move them to whichever area you need them in. They are also very sturdy and will generally outlive many of the other types of room dividers.
Another highly popular type of room divider is the ceiling curtain room divider. Unlike the traditional room divider, room divider curtains cover a whole area, from floor to ceiling, just like a permanent wall. These dividers are used much like the customary hinged dividers, but can provide additional definition to rooms along with privacy.
A lot of people choose to not spend money at all and instead opt to use things they already own in the place of room dividers. For example, if you have two tall book cases, you can line them up side by side and create a small sitting area or reading space for you to enjoy.
You can also do the same with large potted plants. Use what you have to divide up particular rooms. For example, if you have a large kitchen – dining area, use a few potted plants to visually separate the room into two different areas.
