Creating designated spaces or zones can be challenging, especially in modern open-concept homes. When one room has to serve multiple functions — entry, living room, dining room, office, etc. — it can be difficult to create a design plan that flows well and makes the space super functional. The designers of these spaces have used a wide variety of room dividers to do just that and create separateness within these gorgeous rooms.
So, if you’re looking for a way to make your great room look sensational and to improve function in your open-concept home, why not think about using a room divider? These see-through options allow for clean sight lines while adding style, interest, and sophistication to these living rooms. What’s more, room dividers make an open space feel more homey.
