Lack of space is a frequent problem in modern homes and you can often find tiny studio apartments that have no inner walls. If you own such a small space, you may think that the last thing you need is an element like a room divider, which was literally made to close off and separate spaces. But a room divider is a good way to section off and organize small spaces and make your little home cozier and more stylish. Let me share some room dividers that are proper for small spaces.
Sheer Room Dividers
If you have a small home, your space divider shouldn’t visually close off a space, prefer a sheer or visually open one. it may be a sheer white curtain, a fringe curtain, a slatted wooden screen or a muted color glass divider – the design, color and look depend on the style and color scheme of your space. Designs like these are perfect for adding some conceptual organization between areas in small, open-plan spaces. And they don’t make the space feel claustrophobic.
a sheer wooden screen is a cool way to separate the spaces with style and without any bulky looks

sheer muted color glass partitions are a stylish and contemporary way to divide spaces
such a beautiful macrame screen will be a nice sheer divider and an accent in your boho chic space
a sheer white curtain is a perfect option to separate a sleeping space from the rest of your apartment
a white fringe curtain is a cool take on a usual white sheer curtain, it divides spaces and doesn't look obtrusive

a glass screen is a neutral and not too bulky space divider for a small home
Storage Room Dividers
Make your room divider functional – choose a storage unit, which will be a practical solution and will help you organize the spaces. It can be an open shelving unit, which is lightweight looking yet provides storage, a glass and wood storage unit or a light metal and wood shelf, most of such units can be easily DIYed.

a contemporary slatted wood room divider with a cabinet integrated for storage is sheer enough for a small space
a large open shelving unit from ceiling to floor is a cool idea to separate spaces with functionality
Accent Room Dividers
It’s common to see room dividers used as decorative accents, and this is a great idea for a small space – you get a large artwork with functionality! A room divider can bring interest with materials and texture, colors and patterns and anything else that comes to your mind. And a room divider with a full art scene on it gives the optical illusion that your small space is larger since it feels like you’re looking into a window to another world.
