Optimizing space in your room is crucial when you’re trying to eliminate clutter, and also increase some much needed space in your home. Using a room divider (fun fact: Germans call this a Raumteiler) you can hide away things that seem to take up a lot of space more, and therefore increase the appearance of having more space, or you can actually use certain ones to increase the space in another area. In this guide, we’ll show you some ways to maximize space with a room divider properly.
Using a Diver Wall
By throwing a divider wall between your dining room and your living room, you can further enhance a lot more comfort in your living room and make it feel like you’re really able to relax. While it may not be much, just using a basic wall made of wood and drywall can also give you an extra place to hang things like family photos or some custom art that sets well. Not only that, but you can choose to contrast well or make it blend in with the other walls so it’s like having a fourth wall, yet still maintain an open floor plan.
Use a 4-Panel Divider for Maximum Space and Extra Wall-Space
You can literally make paneled dividers out of anything, from wooden pallets, to bamboo sheets. Not only that, but you can actually purchase paneled dividers for a pretty good price. Keep in mind that location of where you put these is also a key factor, because you want them where they aren’t going to get torn up or knocked over.
Use Hooks for Special Items
When using a room divider in places like the kitchen, you can also make use of it by inserting hooks to hand things on, such as pots, pans, and even coffee cups to enhance the availability of certain dishes, and use it to get the most efficiency and space saving features as possible.
Make a Masterpiece
One thing you can do that is really cool, is to use one side of a room divider for something like art only, while the other side features a shelf or dresser-like features to the back of them (like separating a bedroom from a living room). You can actually paint the living room side with a design from bottom to top so it looks fashionable and artistic, and then if you go to the bedroom side, you’ll notice that it has all of the things you need for basic living when it comes to shelves, hanging spaces and dressers.
Room dividers are a great tool when it comes to trying to increase the appearance of space in your home. Not only that, but if they’re used correctly, you can use them as a staple that you can hang or put things on (even moving bookshelves can be room dividers if used right), or even use to just have a general piece of art of family photo collage on. You can also use them in other rooms of the house to make them more beneficial as well, such as incorporating a double-sided shelf in a bathroom that has a bathtub and a stand-up shower.
