Create two or more rooms out of one room in your home with cheap room dividers. The type of divider you choose will depend on what it is used for. A cheap room divider is fairly easy to make and it can be both beautiful and functional, if you invest a little time and effort into its design and construction. While you can spend the money to buy a ready-made room divider, we think you’ll like the results of making your own better, since you can customize it to meet your unique needs and the unique constraints of the room you’re adding it to. Making a cheap room divider is easy, even if you don’t have a lot of construction experience. It requires basic tools such as a drill, electric saw and measuring tape and some off-the-shelf construction materials you can pick up at any home improvement store. There are plenty of instructions for how to create a room divider on the cheap on do it yourself websites. There are so many options we really can’t include them all here.
Before you go too far, look at the different styles and options online. This will help you settle on a design direction. For example, you can go with a Japanese style folding room divider, which is striking in appearance and lets the light shine in through the translucent paper screens. Or you can go with something more opaque and permanent looking. Screens can be permanent or portable, so that’s another important design consideration.
