24 Ways to Alter Your Floor Plan for Maximum Space

Furnishings

Thinking of ways to alter your floor plan and maximise space in your home? How about room dividers? They’re great for creating efficient layouts so your home can better meet your family’s needs. Whether you want to divide one bedroom into two so your children may each have their own bedroom; conceal one space from another; or even draw attention to a particular area in the house – room dividers are a brilliant way to add character unique to your home. With different types of room dividers available, be as innovative and creative as you like, and your home will be warmer, trendier, and much more cozier.

 

 

There are basically three types of room dividers. 1) Permanent Room Dividers, 2) Improvised Room Dividers, and 3) Flexible Room Dividers. Permanent room dividers are built in and cannot be easily moved or changed without some renovation involved. Examples include walls that are half the width or half the height of a solid wall.

 

 

Improvised room dividers on the other hand, are essentially multi-purpose. Apart from dividing spaces, they have other purposes – for example, bookshelves, cupboards, and even planters. Lastly, flexible room dividers are dividers that can be freely moved to change the layout of a space at any given time. They come in a wide variety ranging from screens, panels, and even standing mirrors, to mention a few.

 

 

Without further ado, scroll on to check out 24 great examples of how to use room dividers to alter your floor plan for maximum space!

Simple and sophisticated, this floor to ceiling divider with its clean lines, helps to separate spaces without coming off as overly bulky. The application of gaps in the wood divider also allows air and light to flow through easily.

A wall at half the height is a simple way to efficiently create areas for different use. You may also mount your TV, bookshelves, or use the top of the divider wall as a display area.

Sliding doors are good for concealing areas when not in need. Especially for places that tend to get a little cluttered like workspaces or study areas.

Another example of sliding doors – slide open the doors when you want to enlarge the room, or close the doors if you want to shut off visitors' view of a particular space like your bedroom, for example.

Another great example of a wall at half height – this helps to efficiently divide your room, so each space may be effectively utilised for different uses. Like the picture above, the wall enables the family to clearly distinguish the living area from study area.

One of the top trends this year, barn doors have been replacing the typical doors in some HDB homes as seen on T-blogs on our very own Renotalk forum. Did you know they can also be used as room dividers?

This one blows us away. How about a room divider made of only LEGO BRICKS. The people who owned this office wanted to dress it up and took it upon themselves to craft a room divider separating the pantry from the main area with lego. For lovers of lego, this might just be it!

Another way to use pallets? You've seen them as bed frames, coffee tables, and now, room dividers too. Add some nails, and you may also put your favourite family photos up, in true blue industrial-style.
