Modern room divider

Room dividers do as their name suggests – they help divide space within a room.

In a large lounge-diner, for example, a room divider can be used to separate the space into two functional areas, so that your living and lounging area is distinctive to your dining zone.

Whilst you may think of room dividers as being big, bulky pieces of furniture, that shut off sections of a room and make the space darker in doing so, that’s certainly not always the case, as this modern room divider from Bo Concept demonstrates.

It serves the practical purposes of dividing space, but does so in a way that makes the divider a feature in its own right. There’s shelving space provided so that you can display your favourite home accessories or ornaments, but plenty of open space and light, so that the two areas of the room still blend into one, even though the separate areas are defined.

In fact, this divider can be customised to your own requirements – panels can be added to the bottom shelf, so that you’ve got space to hide clutter within it, as well as retaining some open shelves for other items.

The Amari room divider is made from black stained oak veneer and can be purchased from Bo Concept.

Ikea Risor room divider screen

Divide your room

Divide your room

We’ve written before about our love for room dividers and screens - they’re great for creating a division in open plan rooms, or for hiding your clutter behind.

This Risor room divider is new in at Ikea and is made from solid wood, with polypropylene plastic. Designed by Julia Treutiger, we particularly like the fact that the plastic inserts will still allow light to come through, as some dividers are big, heavy and can make a room feel darker when they’re in use.

The divider screen folds down when it’s not in use, which is great for all you space saving fiends.

For more details, head over to Ikea, where the Risor room divider is available for the fantastic price of £79.

Three stunning room screen dividers

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009
Screens or room dividers are great for using in rooms of your home where you want to screen off or hide certain parts of a room, such as cluttered corners, or divide your space into particular areas, such as splitting your living area into a relaxation zone and a home office.
Screens come in a variety of decorative designs and sizes and can be works of art in their own right.  Here are three of our favourites.

1. Landscape photo screen

You can choose the image you want and it’s printed onto the hardwearing canvas screen, giving you effective wall art, as well as a practical room divider. If you’d like an inspirational view, then images of the countryside or sea work really well.

The screen is available with between two or four panels and costs from £249 from Bags of Love.

2. Oriental hand carved decorative screen

Open plan living is great in many ways, but sometimes there are moments when it’s good to be able to hide certain areas (clutter, perhaps?) or divide the space up into smaller segments.

That’s where the benefits of portable screen dividers come in, as they can be easily moved around to hide corners you don’t want to have on view all the time and create a new look in your open plan living.

This hardwood screen is made by designer Matt Gagnon. It’s made from natural materials, has a nice earthy feel to it and can provide privacy when you need it. It’s available from 2Modern and costs $2,100.
