Child's Room Divider Ideas

When you have a room that is shared by children, creating separate space for the children where they are able to express their own style and have some privacy is important. Having the flexibility to open the room again makes this all the more challenging. Fortunately, there are some creative and inexpensive ways to create child's room dividers that can accomplish both goals.


One way to divide a child's room is through the use of cloth. Drive eye bolts near the tops of two walls that are across from each other, and string a line between the bolts. Choose extra-large curtain rings or shower rings, and a colourful cloth, and you have a simple way to divide the room in half or restore it into one large room again. The fabric can be tapestries often used for dorm rooms, sheets or even curtains picked up at a lawn sale.


Another way to create a child's room divider is to make use of furniture. By putting the children's beds headboard to headboard, then you automatically create a divider by making the children face away from each other. You can even add a tall piece of plywood standing on end between the headboards to accentuate this. Open shelves can also create a divider, especially if it's able to be accessed on both sides. This practical use of a divider as storage can help your children make efficient use of the space in their room.

Folding Screen

A folding screen can add colour to the children's room as well as create an effective divider. Like the cloth, the folding screen can be opened and closed, making it easy for the children to change the room as they see fit.
