While open floor plans are divine, they are not suitable for every lifestyle. Room dividers, when done cleverly, are brilliant. In lieu of your typical Japanese screen, here are a few clever ideas to divide your space and maintain it’s flow!
Above, a wall of vintage filing drawers provide chic storage as well as a sense of separation in open spaces.
And here, a glamorous trompe l’oeil divider separates space while maintaining an airy feeling of openness.
I am a big fan of this color blocked, stretched fabric room divider. It becomes an art piece as well as a room partition.
And, let’s face it, when is a wall of plants ever a bad thing? Here you can turn a cheapie shelving unit into a greenhouse of goodness.
You can cleverly come up with your own designs. My loft in Soho was partitioned with PVC pipe and burlap. It worked! You can always find a way to flow with your floor plan & make it work for you!

I wanted to get the book, but somehow the link is not working. Do you have another link? I was reading about the dividers. I was planning to divide my bedroom, but does the divider need to touch the ceiling?
Hi Deepti. No the divider does not need to touch the ceiling (great question) but it’s great if it creates what you personally percieve to be a real division that creates privacy and separation. The easiest I’ve found is to use a room curtain (I’ve done this before, installing pvc pipe as a curtain rod on the ceiling and creating a seperation with fabric) but you’ll find your best way!
