I am a mother of three wonderful adult children, and I'm also a born-again Christian. I love to share my personal experiences.

Another Form Of Art That Adds True Beauty & Style To Any Room

Room dividers can be used to add a different look to any room, it is another form of art. It isn't only used to divide an area, although it can be used for that as well. Today I am sharing one of many dividers that come in many shapes and sizes.

This one in the picture to the left is one of my own room dividers that I personally have in my dinning room area. I am using it more for a decorative piece than I am for dividing up the room.

I originally fell in love with this divider because I loved this black 'Asian style' with all of the flowers and the birds painted onto it, I have always loved flowers and birds. I loved it so much that I purchased two of them, with a matching end table. More for the design than anything else. It adds a beautiful design to any room in the house. Room dividers come in many styles and can be used for almost anything. Anywhere from classy designs, cartoon characters, the list can go on and on.

Dividers also save on space, separating an area can be easy when using a room divider. I am convinced that it is a great investment because there are so many options for a divider. I have learned that decorating a room with dividers can actually add a touch of real art.

This is a work of art

Something that I would also like to use in my daughters jungle room, it really adds a 'jungle feel', to any room for that matter. This is a divider that I have come to really appreciate. Room dividers can be used to match any room. It is up to one's own imagination to use it for various rooms in your home. Don't be limited in imagination.

Here Is A Tip For You

If you can't afford purchasing a room divider there are many ways to make it affordable. You can make a room divider yourself.


I can personally advise you that dividers aren't only about creating space, but they can also add art to any room, or even make a great conversation piece when you have guests in your home. You can also make your own divider.

Start by using two old doors, and then begin sanding them down. Removing all of the paint first, then adding the art that you desire, or just painting them a solid color if you wish. Connecting them together with affordable hinges that you can get at your local hardware store. Of course in order for these doors to be a portable divider you must use hollow doors.

Don't limit yourself - Use your imagination

You can create your own affordable dividers to your own style, or to match any room in the home. Here are some ways to decorate a room with a divider.

  1. You can create a cheap version and add wallpaper to the divider to match the painted walls or the room style.
  2. You can use it for photos, pictures and decorative decals.
  3. Putting it next to a wall you can add stuffed animals on the top to give it a different style to your child's room.
  4. You can use it for a headboard to a bed.
  5. You can replace it for curtains in front of your window. It can be used to keep the sun out, or you can put the divider where too much sun comes in, yet you still have the privacy that you want.
  6. How about using it for a decorative hanger for your robe, coat, whatever you choose. Just pin or screw the hook to an area where you would like it to be.
  7. Put an end table in front of it with a nice vase and flowers, you would be amazed how beautiful that will look.

You can take a divider with a favorite celebrity and dress up your room in that way. It is fun to see how many things you can come up with when it comes to a room divider, it goes with each individual's likes and needs, and it will also compliment a room and/or add a certain style to any room. This is what makes it so much fun.

There are so many dividers on the market, and of course there are too many to show here. The 21st century has come along way from the 7th century when the divider first was introduced from China. Starting as an asian style, to now having every style imaginable. What is really great is that anyone can create or purchase them now, the divider adds style and also gives space where needed, from businesses to homes, no longer only for the royals and/or the wealthy. But for all who wish to own one, no matter what your financial background is.

Fun for your kids rooms too. They will love it!

      I like the look of room dividers, but my house is full with too much furniture to add one to my house.
