While open plan living is the want of many homeowners, room divider ideas are required for many layouts to give spaces privacy, a sense of cosiness, or simply to add an extra wall to use for storage.

Whether it's your open plan kitchen-diner, hallway or living room, including visual partitions can be endlessly useful.  And for many room divider ideas, they don't have to be permanent fixtures either — often they can be deployed as a temporary solution before you take on a remodelling project.
