Room Divider Ideas for Any Space

There is a strong sense of excitement surrounding home and office design projects. The opportunity to liven up a space and make it your own is a valued privilege. Many people love watching home improvement shows, creating aesthetic vision boards, and bookmarking tabs and tabs worth of interior design inspiration.

But designing a space doesn’t happen often, so there’s a pressure to “get it right.” And sometimes, the amount of choices available to you can become overwhelming and lead to procrastination, putting a halt on your plans.

When it comes to dividing a space, we’re here to put you at ease. Whether you’re renovating your home or modernizing your office, we have room divider ideas that will spark your creativity and motivation for any project.

Room Dividers for the Office: Balancing Privacy and Community

Office design has transformed several times over the last century.

Far from the max efficiency models of the 1910s and 20s that featured small, communal desks in tight rows,[1] the modern office now seeks to improve productivity by balancing comfort and community.

After the rise of the cubicle in the 1980s and 90s was met with criticism for its confining and isolating nature, office designers introduced the open floor plan to promote community in the workspace.[2] This came with its own issues, however, mainly an increase in noise and distraction for employees.

The versatility of room dividers can lend itself to both privacy and socialization for a more pleasant and productive office space. Clear sliding doors can be used for individual offices to make it easier to see when someone is free to meet, while frosted glass or wood doors can be used for conference rooms that require more concentration and discretion from users.

Remote workspaces are important to consider as well. Remote and hybrid work is desired by nearly the entire workforce, and the amount of people working from home is projected to increase to 22% in 2025.[3]

Creating a functional and pleasing work-from-home environment has never been more necessary. For those who might not have an extra room to dedicate to a home office, using partitions to divide an already-existing space is a creative solution.

Room Dividers for the Home: Combining Utility and Style

Room dividers are desirable for their ability to seamlessly combine functionality and style.

Dividers can be whatever you want: they can be bold design statements or they can blend quietly into the background. They can both divide and connect spaces, add privacy or visibility, and can influence the feel of a room. Basically, the applications are endless.

For those with large, open floor plans, glass room dividers can add intrigue to your space without limiting your view of the room. And for those with smaller spaces, glass doors will create a deeper sense of space and airiness. If you want a homier, more rustic feel, try wood.

A benefit to sliding doors is that they don’t require space to open out into a room. So if you’re working with limited space, sliding doors would be the perfect room divider option.

Sliding doors can also be fully customizable to match your space. If you’ve decided you want to add sliding doors to a room after making other design choices, you won’t have to worry about scrapping everything and starting again from scratch.

Designing Your Dream Dividers

At KNR Sliding Doors, we make it easy to create the sliding doors and room dividers of your dreams. Every part of our doors is customizable to your unique vision, from size, to material, to frame color and design.


The material of your room divider will have a major impact on the feel of your room. Whether you’re trying to achieve something modern and sophisticated, or create a warm and cozy atmosphere, we have a wide selection of materials to choose from.

Our doors can be made with glass or wood paneling. For glass, among several other options, we offer:

  • Clear
  • Frosted
  • Tinted
  • Mirror

And for wood, we offer a wide range of shades, from light to dark, to suit the theme of any space.

If you can’t decide between the two, you have the option to combine both in almost any configuration you can think of.


Size is another important factor when considering room dividers. Of course, the size of your room will come into play, but size also has an aesthetic value. Do you want it to be the centerpiece of your space or a subtle accessory?

KNR has sliding doors and dividers in a plethora of sizes, from closet doors to L-shape doors and office cubicles. No matter what space you’re planning to divide, we have you covered.

Frame Color and Style

Your door’s frame needs to be considered as well. Both its color and style need to mesh naturally with the theme of your space.

Our frames come in three colors: black, white, and silver. Each color is multifaceted and will pair seamlessly with both modern and classic styles.

There are a variety of frame configurations to choose from. Doors can be a single pane of glass or wood, or they can be divided into various satisfying geometric patterns. Try the classic Twin, Triple, or Quattro styles, or the interesting, asymmetric Ladder or Up & Down styles.

Room dividers shouldn’t simply break up a space. As with every interior design choice you make, you should choose your room divider with equal consideration and importance.

KNR is here to help you every step of the way.
