As lifestyles change and homes are built differently, people also wish to design and divide their home space in the best way that suits their needs…
One increasingly popular feature in interior space customisation, especially when it comes to apartments and loft-style living, is using room dividers. A contemporary room divider is a beautiful and practical way to separate specific-use spaces in your home, hide areas that are unfinished or prone to clutter, or simply carve out a reading nook, practical home office or a cosy relaxation spot.
One of our favourite room divider types is a bookcase, which can be an incredibly decorative room feature that can be further accessorised and personalised at any given time. There are many practical and aesthetic benefits to adding a bookcase as a room partition in your home. A distinctively New York-style loft feature, it is also becoming a trend in Europe, and we can see why.
Bookcases are not simply for holding books; they are also an elegant multi-purpose solution for separating your space into distinct, useful and private areas while creating extra storage and adding depth and impact to your decor.
When using a bookcase to divide your room, size plays an important role in whether or not it works. It should not be too wide or too deep, and should work well with the height of the ceilings. An efficient and versatile bookcase divider is visible but not overwhelming, it should serve its purpose while blending into the background. And, while it should not be the central focus of visual attention in a room, you can certainly have fun accessorising and decorating its shelves (on both sides!) with not just books, but photos, vases, sculptures, plants and lamps, too.
