Our advice Buying Guide

Sliding hanging room dividers can be a solution for breaking up a large space or can be used to provide privacy in a small space. The panels move easily across a hanging track, much as a curtain would move on a long curtain rod. The panels can be made of almost any lightweight material, or – if the traverse rod is sufficiently sturdy – even heavier materials.

What are the common uses of sliding hanging room dividers?

The most common uses of sliding hanging room dividers include privacy protection, decoration and heat control.

  • The use of sliding hanging room dividers for privacy

A common use of sliding hanging room dividers is to provide privacy. They can be used to mask a bathroom, dividing it from a bedroom, or they can be used to mark off the bedroom portion of a bed/sitting room. They can be pushed aside during the day, especially if the bed is a foldaway sofa or chair bed, or even a daybed. This allows the family or guests to use the room as if it were not a bedroom at all. When sleep time comes, the panels can be pulled across, creating a sleep space.

  • Decorative use of hanging room dividers

Not all spaces need to be divided off for privacy. Sometimes all that’s needed is to mark off a section of a room, showing that its purpose is separate from the rest of the space, such as creating a small office or setting aside a dining area. While privacy might sometimes be desired, it is not essential. In these cases, the hanging divider might be a panel of lacey macramé, strands of decorative beads, or chains of pearlescent plastic circles.

  • Preventing drafts and heat loss for halls or doorways

Sliding hanging room dividers can be used to conserve heat or air conditioning, depending upon the season. Frosted plexiglass panels, such as might be used for a bathroom shower, make an elegant way to create a hall entrance that will control drafts from an open door. Heavy fabric on a frame can serve the same purpose.

Can curtains be used as room dividers?

Curtains are probably one of the easiest sliding hanging room dividers. They are lighter than framed hanging panels yet can provide both a privacy screen and a barrier against drafts. More than that, the wide variety of fabrics that are available make them a shoo-in for designer choices. You can use solid colors as backdrops or select large print or brocade for a brighter backdrop for more furniture that has dark or neutral colors.

How to install room dividers?

Room dividers can be installed in a variety of ways. One of the easiest is to install wires using ceiling hooks. These are the least expensive and the least invasive for existing architecture. Wire hangers, however, are only effective for curtains, beads or very light framed panels. Traverse curtain rods are the next best choice, followed by installing more permanent supports using a permanent frame that supports tracks such as those used for shower doors. Most of the materials are available at local hardware stores or home supply locations. Fabrics are available anywhere yard goods are sold, and panels can be purchased or created using fabric or paper over light wooden frames. The only limit is your imagination.

OUR ADVICE Questions & Answers

What is the purpose of sliding hanging room dividers?
To divide the space and to look good while doing so. A room divider can hide an area which you’d like to keep private, direct foot traffic, provide a decorative background or define a space… or everything at once!

What are the most common rooms in which dividers are used?
Bedrooms, lofts, large multi-purpose spaces, studios… we can’t think of a room that couldn’t use sliding hanging room dividers, as long as they are chosen appropriately.

Are room dividers expensive?
Actually, they may be the cheapest solution for dividing your space without hurting the aesthetics. Just think about it – no need to install doors or build walls! Of course, the final price depends on the materials – mahogany room dividers will be more expensive than those made from rice paper.

Are hanging room dividers hard to install?
Not at all, and you can find plenty of guides online. However, if you are a total stranger to installing furniture on your own, it may be a safer bet to look for a professional in your local area. Installation of dividers shouldn’t cost too much, and you’ll be sure it gets done right!

How to choose the colour and design of my sliding hanging room divider?
It’s good to keep the sliding room dividers cohesive with the rest of décor. After all, that’s why you choose dividers instead of heavy doors – you want them to be subtle, to blend with your design and be unnoticeable yet effective! Pick colours and patterns which fit the surroundings, and you can’t go wrong.

What about the materials. Is there a lot to choose from?
Yes, they come in many different shapes and forms. First, decide whether you want the etheral rice paper divider, or one made from solid panels. These can be made from wood, woven fibre, canvas, lacquer or faux leather. Your choice should be dictated by the character of your interiors – for example, a Scandinavian house could use wood more than leather. Then, think what’s more important – decorations (printed canvas, dyed faux leather, Chinese lacquer) or functionality (plain white canvas, shoji, wood & fabric).

Do sliding hanging room dividers come in various sizes?
Of course. Depending on the height of your ceiling, you can get dividers which are 3, 4, 5, 6 or even 7 feet high. Same goes for width – dividers are usually made from between 3 to 6 panels, depending on the width of space.
