Room dividers separate a large living space into smaller areas without cutting off connection entirely. This visual screening can be imperative in studio apartments, desirable in family homes, and decorative in spacious dwellings. Here, we show a myriad types of room dividers and the spaces they complement. You’ll find ideas for floor-to-ceiling room dividers that build a feeling of grandeur and muxarabi screens that create stunning light play. There are curtain room dividers that offer a flexible solution, and freestanding screens for portability. We’ve also included glass partitions that section a room without severing the visual flow, and office room dividers that would suit either a home study or a commercial space.
