Sometimes, you just need more walls. The open floor plans we have in our homes are great, but sometimes you need walls or room dividers to create more space to tuck things away. Luckily, there are beautiful room dividers available on Amazon that can help you with your floor plan issues.
To see the best room dividers on Amazon, check out the ideas below. At the bottom of this post, I'll show how I made a DIY Room Divider using things I had in our home.
Why Use a Room Divider?
Room dividers are great for creating more storage space, or even setting up a private area in your home. The nice thing about them is that they're portable, easy to store, and they're super versatile.
Ways to Use Room Dividers
- To hide something unattractive – items you need to store, an ugly wall, or anything else you'd rather not see all the time.
- To create a separate workspace – I used a room divider to separate my office area from our bedroom in our last house, and it worked out great!
- For privacy – Chances are good that you've probably seen a makeshift “changing area” made with a room divider or screen. If you need privacy somewhere in your home, a room divider is a perfect solution.
- To eliminate distractions – If you need to focus, but you can't help but notice all that's going on around you at home, a room divider could help keep you on track!
- To change the foot traffic pattern in your home – If you'd like to have people walk a certain path in your home, you can use a room divider to show people how to travel through your space.
- For decoration – As you can see from the room dividers below, some of them are beautiful! Pick one that fits with your decor style, and enjoy it as a functional decorative item.

Use Cube Shelves as a Divider
Another option for dividing a room is to use shelving as a wall that doubles as storage. Shelves that are open from both sides like the ones above can be set up perpendicular to your walls to create barrier in the middle of your space. However, if you live in an earthquake-prone area or have small children, you might want to skip this idea. If a large shelf like this tipped over, it could easily injure someone.
Above is another decorative shelf that could be used as a room divider, although it wouldn't offer as much privacy as some of the other options.
