Single Panel Room Dividers

Buy the best single panel room dividers selected and recommended by interior designers. By Chloe Hughes.

If you must divide a room in spirit but not really divide it entirely, then a single panel room divider might be what you need. With open floor plans as the most common home and office design, it is easy to feel like your home is too big. Putting in a divider, even a small one, can give the illusion of a separation, which can help with that anxiety. See collection for more.

If you’re looking to incorporate some luxury into your home, this panel divider is a good way to do so. Sleek and clean-lined, it is available in black or brown. The frame is constructed from aluminum, whereas the panel itself is made from mixed solid hardwoods. It can be used indoors only.

To cultivate a Nordic-style ambiance in your home, the brown color option is the best choice. Pair it with mid-century modern furniture and a rattan coffee table for a touch of boho glam. Stick to a neutral greige color palette.

Geometric Room Divider Panel

Geometric Room Divider Panel

Corrigan Studio®

Description

Perfect For: Contemporary rooms

What We Like: Double-sided design

Made from steel, this room divider panel will introduce style to any room thanks to its modern geometric design. Additionally weather-resistant so you can use it both indoors and outdoors, its slightly elevated design will give the illusion of more space in any area. It isn’t the cheapest divider amongst those reviewed, but it is still relatively affordably priced for being made from steel.

Designer Advice

The stark black finish of this divider will create an especially cool contrast in a lighter room. However, it could make a smaller space appear narrower as darker colors naturally have this effect. Because of this, it’s best for a room with large windows and high ceilings.

What Users Say

The screen is perfect for my office. I wanted to create a background that is visually appealing and blocked the view of my printer. This is perfect.

Arlmont & Co.

Description

Perfect For: Large areas

What We Like: Multiple color choices

Not So Good For: Blocking out all light

Extremely affordably priced, this divider screen can be used both indoors and outdoors. Crafted with a steel frame and a polyester screen, it doesn’t fully reach the ground, meaning it’s ideal for even small spaces. You can pick from five color options - brown, black, sky blue, wine red, and white. Note that this divider screen is not weather or UV-resistant.

Designer Advice

The multiple color choices and large size of this screen make it a good all-round pick for a patio or outdoor pool area. However, it isn’t the best option for states that have extreme weather conditions or windy states because of its lightweight construction.

What Users Say

Well made and aesthetically pleasing screen. The fabric was taut when mounted and made of a think "sunbrella" type fabric. Highly recommend!

Buying Guide

You can easily identify your need, but what will exactly fit in into that need is not that easy to identify, especially where there are uncountable options to choose from. The focus is to select such a piece that could balance out your real-world use with your personal taste.

You might want a one-panel room divider for different purposes:

  • to divide a room in order to specify a space,
  • in order to create a fancy background,
  • to block the sunlight as a window shade,
  • to add privacy to your work section,
  • to redirect foot traffic you can add a room divider,
  • to create a storage area,
  • to cover all of the above-mentioned needs.

While choosing the perfect and practical piece you need to consider a few things:

  • If your room is more towards the casual side of some urban interior, you might need a lightweight one-panel room divider. It is also light in color which doesn’t look like too loud in the middle of your eclectic interior.
  • If your room has more of a traditional and formal décor then you should go for something that is dark in color, solid in touch and heavy.
  • If you got a high ceiling, you should definitely opt for something 6-7 feet tall and in case of lower ceiling, go for something 4-5 feet tall.
  • The width of the panel is also dependent on the space available. Therefore, the one-panel room divider is more practical where you need a smaller partition, have a smaller space and the purpose is confined to a smaller area (like sunlight blockage towards your screen).

You will come across a huge variety of designs in a one-panel room divider such as Japanese shoji screen, Rattan style, faux leather etc. So, here are the tips on how you can identify your perfect one.

  • Japanese Shoji Screen. Japanese Shoji Screens are loved by many customers because of its lightweight, affordable price, portability and the ability to conduct sunlight into the room. It consists of rice paper shade which is acceptable for most of the customers out there for a simple yet attractive piece of décor.
  • Solid Wood Design. In case you want to block the sunlight and come up with something solid looking for your classic décor, the wooden panel would be the right pick.
  • DIY or a floral glass panel. If your room is more to a creative style, you might go for a DIY panel with a whiteboard. A glass panel with a floral can also add some brightness to your creatively decorated room.
  • Vintage one-panel room divider. We do have options for the classic vintage décor, where an antique divider can add fun to your décor and at the same time fulfill your need.
