Various kinds of closet doors are available to help save bedroom space, including hinged, pocket, sliding and bi-fold doors.

We’ve all been there … you need to create two or even three separate spaces out of one, but you don’t have the resources available to do so. Whether it is a huge office conference room that needs to be partitioned off into separate meeting spaces or a gigantic family room that now needs to be converted into a smaller den and office, there are times when larger spaces need to be brought down to size without a major overhaul of existing structures. For those times, room divider screens are the perfect answer.
Even in offices where collaborative team work is encouraged, and you’ve tried to foster an atmosphere of openness and sharing, there will be times when you need to meet individually with a client or discuss confidential matters with an employee. You don’t want to be sequestered behind the doors of a formal office all of the time, but those moments do call for more intimacy than what an open office setup can deliver. For those instances, a privacy wall can help to provide you with the separate space that you need without isolating you permanently from the rest of the office.

Ever since the movie Office Space, cubicles have gotten a bit of a bad rap. However, not all office cubicles are created equal, and the reality is that not all office cubicles have to reek of institutional gray burlap the way they did in the cult classic movie.

Most of us are familiar with the traditional bathroom mirror or even a full-length one on the back of a bedroom door.

Of all the possibilities available when building or remodeling a home, interior pocket doors are probably the most under utilized space-saving delights in the decorating and building world. Besides enabling you to open up a room to the rest of the house, interior pocket doors buy you approximately six to ten square feet of floor space as opposed to a traditional door that requires swing space.
When trying to create two rooms out of one, most homeowners miss an incredible opportunity to allow for the flow of natural light to penetrate both rooms.

When you are looking to section off portions of a large room in your home or office, many options are available to you. However, among the best options for those looking to “go green” are glass partitions.
