Work wonders with room dividers

01-Jun-2017
Got a small, open-plan space but still want room for spontaneous sleepovers, a spot of work and some alone time? Check out our five simple ideas on how to create a room within a room.
Display your favourite stuff on a versatile room divider built from IKEA MYRHEDEN frames in brass-colour. Hook four wire mesh frames together and attach them to a curtain rod rail hanging from the ceiling then start accessorising.
Want to optimise a small space? IKEA has a lot of room dividers, such as ELVARLI one section shelf. Here we used two units. This is a good choice against a wall or to use as a room divider since the post attaches to the ceiling.
1. Separate your space but stay social. Use some airy shelves that double as extra storage space. You don’t need a wall, just attach the posts to the ceiling. Keep clutter hidden in boxes with lids. An extra tray table is easy to pull out when guests come over.
Create a lush room divider! Use a clothing rack such as IKEA RIGGA. Place pots on the rack at the bottom or use string to attach the pot to the frame. Fasten a few branches to the top bar with thread.
2. Get flexible with a movable green screen. Pimp a clothes rack with climbing plants (one with wheels is a plus so you can move it around). Use your favourite species or mix and match different greens in standing and hanging pots. Fasten a few vines to the top bar with thread.

3. Personalise and partition with deco. Display your favourite things and divide the room at the same time. Fasten wire mesh frames to a curtain rod hanging from the ceiling and use the clips to attach your stuff. Use colour to highlight the different ‘rooms’ — we went with grey and light green.
Let a room divider, such as IKEA KALLAX shelving unit in black-brown, create the feeling of an extra space. Get organised by using different inserts such as IKEA KALLAX hanging organiser in light grey for sketches or magazines.
4. Divide for deep(er) focus. Create a semi solid wall with a smart storage unit. This KALLAX shelf is accessible from both sides, but you still get the feeling of two independent ‘rooms’. Use different inserts to organise your stuff and free up desk space.
Create a room divider with a piece of fabric! IKEA has lots of different fabrics that can be used as a flowing room divider, such as IKEA STOCKHOLM in a blue checked pattern. Just attach the fabric to a curtain rod rail hanging from the ceiling.

5. Use fabric to split an on/off bedroom. Fasten some fabric to a curtain rod attached to the ceiling. Close the curtain to retreat from the world (and your room mate). In the day, two compact sofa sections form a seating area. When night falls, grab the stored bedding and fold out the beds.
