Nowadays, a modern living space is one that is open and bright.

When we think of the different room divider solutions, we always think of walls and screens. Apart from these, there are indeed other much more practical and modern room divider solutions. Almost all contemporary interiors have been fitted with a dual-function room divider. Most often, it is a bookcase or other storage unit.

The most important when choosing a room divider solution is not to go for something bulky. Scroll down and discover THE solution for you and your interior !

Among all the options how to separate a room, the library is at the top of the rankings.

This wall which separates the kitchen from the living room has in fact been suspended. We like its ultra original 3D side and how it fits perfectly into the interior. Its role is decorative and practical at the same time. Indeed, the bar, too, represents an intelligent room separation.
The space in the photo below has a really lovely, zen vibe to it. There is only a single matte glass pane that separates the kitchen from the social area. It lets light pass freely through. Gray, white and blue – the color combination of this living space is classic and a perfect choice for those who want to make their interior relaxing.
What if you separate your rooms with a truly original invention? We present to you the cat house made of light wood that allows kitties to have fun.

Separating a room with a sliding or folding door is a great idea for small living spaces..
The door is a classic room divider that’s fairly easy to find and integrate into any interior. Its advantage is the possibility of closing it when necessary and of offering it as well. This is handy if you want to separate the kitchen from the living room, for example. Separating two rooms with a door is also a great idea for small living spaces. You close and optimize your interior at the same time !
The sliding door is easy to store and does not take up much space.
Separate the kitchen from the living room and / or the dining room with central island ?
We have already dedicated a few publications to the many advantages of installing a central island. It opens up space, is super practical and, moreover, acts as a room divider. In modern living spaces, the kitchen is almost always open to the living room and dining room, hence the need for a kitchen island. Buy it already ready-made, have a designer design it especially for you, or make it yourself – it all depends on your means and your own desires. If you live in a small space, you can simply set up an American bar. The latter will play a triple role – island, room divider and a small dining area !
This small studio (in the photo below) has been cleverly fitted out. Everything is white and gray. The kitchen island is medium in size and adapts ideally to the design of the space.
Simple and pretty idea, installing a bookcase as a room divider is a great idea, especially for those who love to read! It is also a low cost solution. You will easily find models adapted to your needs in specialized stores (IKEA, Leroy Merlin or elsewhere) or online. It is even possible to make it yourself if you want !
Another great advantage of the library is that it can be installed really anywhere. In addition, it lets light pass through and will not make the interior darker..
This suspended bookcase fits perfectly into this living space with industrial touches.

How to separate the bedroom from the living room in a small studio ?
If you live in a small living space, it’s best to avoid all kinds of walls and open everything up. It is still necessary to more or less separate the bedroom from the living room and the kitchen to have a little privacy. Here too, we opt for the same room separation options: bookcase, TV cabinet, small wall or even glass. The library is of course the most practical.
The bedroom (in the photo below) has been separated from the small living room by a glass which also acts as a storage unit. It also allows you to set up the TV, store the vinyl collection, as well as your phonograph and some books.
To have a little privacy, the designers of this living space decided to install a half-black, half-transparent wall. This is a great idea because this way we do not understand the brightness of the space, but we provide its inhabitants with a certain privacy.
So, have you already chosen your favorite room divider solution? The key is to find the solution you want. Designing your living space in a functional and intelligent way is very important for your comfort, but you must not forget that in the end, you are the one who lives there.
