4 quick and easy room divider ideas

Dividers are an easy way to make room for a workspace at home. Your choice of divider basically comes down to what your needs are – more shelf storage, more clothes storage, or simply a curtain that screens off the bed?

A wall of extra storage

Using a shelving unit as a divider also gives you plenty of space for storage, plants and decorations. It can also be fitted with boxes and mini chests of drawers – an easy way to close off certain sections completely.

A screen for better focus

Sometimes a screen is just a screen, but also the most effective option for separating things and getting better work focus. Choosing a light-weight material lets you easily open and close as you like.

Close things off with clothes

Want more room for your clothes? Then perhaps a clothes rack is the best way to divide your room. It also gives you a great overview for when you’re getting dressed and makes sure that everything is well-aired and tidy.

Workflow with a flowy look

A room-dividing curtain is an easy way to get a well-defined workspace. It also adds a soft cocoon vibe when you’re in bed. Just swoosh them aside when you feel like opening up the place again.
