Walnut Wood Shades
Let’s begin with an artistic room divider. As you have noticed, this room divider doesn’t just divide the room. It also complements the look of the room. Since the room is mostly white, the room divider becomes a focal point due to its brown color.
You can use artistic room divider like the above for both small and large space. It is an ideal choice if you want a room divider that is both decorative and practical.
A Chic Space Divider
The next idea in our room divider ideas is to use windows. Yes, windows but not ordinary windows. These hanging windows create a separation in the space. They demarcate which space is which while also being a see-through border.
The beauty of hanging windows is they give a sense of what is inside and outside of them, not unlike normal windows.
Let’s say you use these windows to separate the living room and the kitchen. If you are in the living room, you will feel as if the kitchen is outside and vice versa.
There are also room divider ideas DIY. While there are plenty of room dividers available on the market, remember that DIY alternatives are always available.
Compared to premade dividers, with DIY dividers you can be as creative as you want. Indeed, you can create dividers based on your liking.
The above is a good example of room divider ideas DIY. It is a room divider made of ropes that are stretched vertically.
While it divides the space, it doesn’t separate the space completely. As it is basically a see-through border, it gives an air of openness which makes the space appear larger.
Frames and Boxes
Boxes and frames can be a great room divider as well. The best thing about such a room divider is that you can fit many things inside the frames, from a planter with green grass, a wooden cube, and even a chalkboard box. As long as the item has a rectangular shape, you can fit them inside the frames.
On one hand, the thick, black lines of the frames create a clear line between the bedroom and the outside space. On the other, the items that are inside the frames accentuate the interior décor.

Divider Sliding Wall
In terms of room dividers, there is nothing like folding doors. There are two reasons why. First, folding doors can occupy and separate the space completely, making the space in-between really separated. Second, if you want to connect the space, all you need is to fold the doors. Very convenient, isn’t it?
Folding doors are very practical options. They only require a small space and, depending on the doors, can provide you with privacy when you need it. For example, the above folding doors are frosted, ensuring privacy.
Due to their versatility, folding doors are the ideal choice if you have a small living room. Speaking of which, if you need inspiration, you can check out our ideas for small living room.
Room Divider Ideas for Studio
You don’t need a large room divider to separate the space. In some cases, a smaller room divider can work as well, if not better, too.
This is especially true in a studio apartment. The above room divider is a good example of how a smaller room divider can separate the space without overcrowding it.
The last thing you want to do to a small space is to overcrowd it. So if you have a small space, choose smaller room divider that cannot just separate the space but also keep it open.
Unique Sliding Doors
This one is another example of room divider ideas that can be both decorative and practical. Unlike folding doors that can be hidden, sliding doors are still there when you close them. This is why the ideal sliding door is one that has good color and/or patterns.
For example, the beautiful doors above have unique patterns on them. These patterns not only make the space looks more interesting, but they also provide a cover when closed, thus giving you privacy when you need it.
A bit of natural touch is never a bad idea. Of course, this also applies to room dividers as well. A naturalistic room divider adds freshness to the space. Several dried branches, for example, make a good room divider that adds freshness.
The previous ideas use premade room dividers, while this one uses branches which cost must less than a premade room divider. As such, if you are on a budget, this room divider is certainly among the best room divider ideas cheap for you.
‘Open’ Room Divider Ideas
Next in our list of room divider ideas is an ‘open’ room divider. Not all room dividers are closed. Some of them are ‘open,’ just like the above example.
This C-shaped room divider allows you to separate the space into two parts yet still allow these parts to connect with each other.
Even better, the room divider can be turned into both extra storage and a display for other decors (like pots of plants, for example). If you have a small space, an ‘open’ room divider will help to make the space looks more spacious.
Some homeowners prefer room dividers that can turn invisible when closed. There are plenty of room dividers like that. If you are looking for something practical, try a wooden room divider that can be opened like a door.
This kind of room divider works really well when used for the bedroom. Why? Well, because when you don’t need it, you can just close and voila! Now the divider looks like a wall that covers up the bedroom.
