Divide A Room and Conquer The Clutter

  Bookshelf as a Room Divider


Along with storing your books and whatever else, a bookshelf is a great tool to use to divide a room. It is perfect for small spaces such as apartments, studios, and lofts where you want to separate an open area. There are a couple things to consider when choosing to divide a room with a bookshelf. Firstly, account for scale and secondly, account for current decor. IKEA makes this possible with their versatile selection of colors and sizes. The larger you want a divide to be, the taller and wider you want your bookshelf to be. Try IKEA’s “Expedit Shelving Unit.”

For a smaller space, try IKEA’s smaller Expedit shelving unit which you can turn horizontally to create a smaller and lower divide.

Having no backing allows you to divide a room while still maintaining the feeling of space and openness. However, if you already have a bookcase that has a backing, but still would like to use it to divide a room, try hanging a picture or mirror on the back to give the illusion of space.


Here’s some photos using IKEA’s Expedit Shelving Unit to inspire you:
