A room divider creates an intimate space and warm ambiance. Open plan areas appear less cold and cavernous with a room divider shelf. At the workplace, room divider shelves create private work spaces, where several people share a space, which is conducive for concentration and a more pleasant work environment. Unlike a folding screen or other piece of furniture used to separate spaces, a room divider shelf offers additional storage space and therefore plenty of functionality. It really doesn’t matter if the room divider shelf is used as a visual division between areas, e.g. separating a reading corner from the rest of the living room, or if you want to create a completely separate space, e.g. as a dressing room for more privacy in the bedroom. There is virtually no end to the possibilities and functions of a room divider shelf. Discover our many room divider ideas in our online shop.
Practical Room Divider Shelves Create More Structure in Your Home
Room divider shelves are a great idea if you want to divide up big open spaces or if you want to create different living areas in a smaller room. They don't just visually separate individual zones, they also create much needed storage space for your things and are great for highlighting decorative objects like vases, candles or many other items.

Modern Solutions for Dividing Rooms
In small homes or apartments, one room often has multiple functions. Maybe your living and dining area needs to be in a single room, or you might need a corner of your bedroom to double as your office with a computer. It will often make sense to visually separate such areas from each other to bring more structure and order to your life. A room divider shelf is the answer. A white room divider shelf is the best choice for a smaller room, as the bright colour won't look too heavy or dark. Our MAXX , BOON and YOMO shelves are perfectly suited for use as a room divider.
So Many Options with a Room Divider Shelf
A more flexible solution is often the best idea when separating living spaces.
There are three main options to choose from:
Shelves or sideboards as room dividers also offer plenty of storage space
A hanging room divider like curtains in a variety of colours, bamboo roller blinds or maybe textile panels that can be pushed to one side
The traditional folding screen or "Spanish wall", consisting of three hinged elements is easy to put up and also very easy to move around

Room Divider Furniture – Great in Bright Colours
White room dividers or room dividers in bright natural colours are easily integrated in the overall room concept. Very high room dividers in particular could block daylight and darken the room, but a white shelf will counteract that effect. Have a look around all the options we have to offer and find inspiration for visually upgrading your home.
More Storage Space with Room Divider Shelves

Free Standing Shelves as Room Dividers
A shelf as a room divider has many advantages over other types of room dividers like a folding screen, as it creates extra storage space. It is particularly practical if your room doesn't have much wall space for a shelf. In other words: a great idea for smaller rooms. A free standing shelf is a great alternative to the traditional wall shelf.
Separating Space with a Sideboard
If you are looking for a unique solution for your room, then a prefabricated shelf just won't do. What you want is a modular shelving system with flexible elements and multiple colours. You could even configure a sideboard as your room divider. A room divider sideboard can be designed to suit your exact needs with shelves of various heights and widths. Plus you can add to this room divider whenever you feel it's time for a change.
'If you choose a room divider with a back wall, make sure the reverse of your room divider is just as attractive as the front. REGALRAUM furniture always comes with a perfect finish on both sides.'
