3 Upcycled Room Dividers to Try

by Karyl Sawyer 01/02/2022

You can add style and charm to any room while also providing useful functionality. One excellent way to accomplish this is by dividing a larger space in creative ways. If you've been thinking about ways to divide a room without costly materials and renovations, here are some clever ideas for upcycled room dividers.

Salvaged Window Divider

Hanging a salvaged window as a room divider is a great way to separate a space and add chic, rustic style. Whether you use one large window or multiple smaller windows, creating a divider this way will let light pass through while still creating a definite division of space. Try painting the window frame to match your decor, or enhance a distressed wood texture with your favorite stain.

Wooden Crate Shelving DIvider

Wooden fruit and coffee crates are perfect for DIY lovers because of their versatility. You can make many different furniture and decor pieces by upcycling crates. You can also use them to divide a room and add storage at the same time.

Set up a row of crates sideways as a DIY modular shelving unit. The vintage look and open slats in the crates will let light pass through the divider while still keeping the room separated. Store your favorite decor, books, plants or other objects to take advantage of this multi-function room divider.

Open Bookcase Divider

Open bookcases are a great way to define a space and make a stylish statement when used as a room divider. Opt for ceiling-height shelving to create the illusion of an entire wall while still letting air and light cross the space. You can leave the shelves empty or fill them with your favorite decorative accessories to fit your style. Try combining different bookcase or shelving units to create eye-catching shapes as part of your design.

If you want to break up a large space, adding a room divider is the way to go. Consider these upcycled options when planning your next room divider project.
