How gorgeous is this apartment? And you can take quite a few room divider ideas from it actually – by far the easiest is the screen between the living room and bedroom.
Pick on that's semi-transparent if you still want the light to flow around the space and basically go unnoticed. You can find similar room dividers over on Wayfair.
The collection of large house plants and the vintage ladder work as a 'wall' on the other side and the living space being slightly raised only helps encourage that feeling of separate rooms.
Any excuse to add to the plant babies' brood. For a fun, easy, and cost-effective DIY wall divider idea, hang plants, ribbons, or pom-pom and flower garlands on a transportable rail. And voila, a unique ‘wall’ that can be switched up whenever the flight of fancy occurs.
As demonstrated here, mix-it-up room dividers provide a clever way to successfully link your indoor-outdoor living spaces.
Interior designer, Kim Gordon, says: ‘By using organic materials like plants, string, and reclaimed wood, you can delineate spaces without building barriers between them. Room dividers represent a huge opportunity to make an almost art-like, large-scale statement from a variety of materials.’
When considering living room layouts, utilize book storage as a fact-or-fiction, useful room divider with a vertical or horizontal, freestanding design (depending on preference and layout), that features open shelving to make an attractive display of treasured tomes.
Robin Antill, director, Leisure Buildings, says: 'A striking bookcase moved away from the window in the style of a library, separates an open space.'

Think outside the color wheel, and use creative paint ideas like color blocking to define different areas in a multifunctional space or apartment living room design.
James Greenwood, interiors expert, Graham & Brown, comments: 'Using two contrasting paint shades you can create zones within the home. We love using a pop of color around archways to create a transition from one area to another. As our homes become increasingly multifunctional, this technique is useful at creating division between spaces for work and rest.'
Max out on natural daylight to keep your open plan living room airy and bright with a light-filtering design made from glass, or that features adjustable slats, or intricate cut-out details.
Mark Cutler and Nichole Schulze, cofounders of Cutlerschulze, say: ‘Room dividers can sometimes be a cool way to filter a view through a window where the view is not so special. In this situation using multicolored glass that will illuminate the room can be a fun and cool idea.’
Grace Baena, interiors curator of Kaiyo, says: 'My favorite style of room dividers are those that allow a room to feel open and alive, while still providing a degree of privacy and separation. I love folding dividers featuring frosted glass and elegant, colorful designs, that still allow the transfer of natural light. Another favorite is using bead curtains when privacy is less of a concern. They can provide a gorgeous accent to a room while also serving as a divider.'
Does your living room or kitchen double up as a modern home office idea? Add meeting room worthy privacy with an acoustical screen and room divider, like the designs from Muffle, that control sound levels and reduce reverberations whilst adding a unique design element to your space.
Why blend in when you can stand out from the crowd?! Exactly – so take note, and choose a high-impact design that makes a bold statement, changes up the dynamic, and adds a dimension of interest and contrast to your overall scheme.

Yvonne Keal, Senior Product Manager at Hillarys, says: ‘Room dividers don’t always have to be neutral colored. Opt for a bright color to spruce up the room and make it stand out. Royal blues and turquoise work particularly well in the modern living room to catch the eye.’
Add natural texture, tactility, and warmth with a room divider made from rustic, natural materials. The perfect addition for a relaxed, boho bedroom or boho living room idea.
Richard Petrie, home expert, Thomas Sanderson, says: ‘Feng shui your bedroom dividers. If you choose a wooden or bamboo room divider, your bedroom can be transformed into a botanical-like haven when accompanied by houseplants and a light color scheme.’
Room dividers don’t have to be vertical. In small living room layouts, zone different areas with living room rug ideas to prevent a boxy look and feel. Choose shades that contrast flooring to define boundaries and specific task areas.
Aaron, interior designer, Juliei Salone, says: ‘Rugs are more than just comfortable and visually appealing; you can also use them to separate different areas. They can be used to separate a living room and dining room in an open floor plan. They can be used as a visual cue to distinguish a study area in a bedroom without needing a traditional room divider.’
If you want something softer looking to work in the bedroom or even around your bed area if you live in a studio flat, curtains are your best bet. IKEA sells a curtain rail that you can mount to the ceiling and create a track that completely wraps around your bed. Pick out a soft, slightly sheer curtain to create a really gorgeous relaxing sleep space that's separate from the rest of the room.
This room divider idea is a bit of a DIY project (or you could get a joiner to help out), but the overall effect looks so fab.
In this studio apartment, the homeowners have created a divide with reclaimed wooden beams, it clearly separates the rustic living room from the kitchen, but doesn't block off any light so the space still feels light and airy.
You might find you don't even have to buy any new room dividers and you can make the furniture you already have work for you. We have a habit when deciding on our living room layouts of pushing everything to the edges, but if you have a larger open-plan space, then all you are left with is a big empty space in the middle of the room.
We like how here the sleeper sofa has been placed in the middle of the room, acting as a room divider. By adding the storage unit against the headboard, it's only created more of a feel of these separate zones, making the room feel cozier and clearly zoned.
The shape of your kitchen can easily be the starting point for dividing up and creating zones in your open plan kitchen space. If you want the kitchen to feel slightly separated, design a kitchen with a breakfast bar or add a kitchen island to divide the cooking area from the dining and living area.
And if totally open plan isn't quite working in your home, you can create that effortless flow between rooms using glass doors. In this 1930s house, opting for more traditional internal French doors looks lovely – they are a real feature of the space. If you are after something more modern, the ever-popular Crittall style doors would do the trick.
How dreamy is this cozy bedroom idea? We love the Crittall-style metal doors that separate the sleeping part of the room from the rest of the space. A full glass wall won't break up the space either, or stop the light flowing around the space, it will just zone off that part making it feel more cozy, private, and luxurious. You could always hang a curtain too if you want the area to feel even more separate.
These room divider ideas are perfect for creating stylish zones in an open plan space, no matter what size room you are working with…
