For a more expensive option, panel track systems usually used on windows can also be used as room dividers. These offer a modern, high-tech look that is attractive and functional. Cover up a kitchen wall or the bedroom area. Panels are modern looking yet provide a great deal of privacy without totally blocking the light. This is an excellent option for those looking for a clean look in their space. Installing the tracks that the panels hang from could require the help of a handyman; check with your landlord before installing the panels to ensure that you will get your security deposit back.
Free standing walls
Interior designer Vicente Wolf lives in a loft apartment in the Garment District in New York City. Large open spaces can be even more of a challenge than small spaces when it comes to dividing up the space. In order to create a sense of privacy for the bedroom area of his space, and to add additional storage, Wolf built a three-sided standing wall that backs up to his bed. A very theatrical, yet practical solution. One side of the wall is bedroom, the other side could be for display, covered storage or whatever is needed.
