[tps_header]A open space plan is highly sought after these days, but a clear view of everything in your home isn’t always a great thing. You don’t want your guests to see your unmade bed, it’s hard to relax in bed when your exercise equipment is in full view, and working at your desk isn’t as productive when your comfy sofa and TV is beckoning you. And sometimes you just need some kind of transition between spaces so your home feels bigger and more intentional.
You can create new spaces in your home by building a room divider or two. Get inspired by checking out these 29 inventive and beautiful DIY room dividers!
