Room dividers usually serve three main purposes: to divide a space, create privacy and/or hide an unsightly area (such as a cluttered desk or a water heater).
But some room dividers do even more–they also offer storage, via shelves or pockets, making them useful for creating a home office, a study space or even a mini crafts room. And of course they’re also ideal for organizing dorm rooms and other shared spaces.
Here are three different kinds of room dividers with storage:
- The Walnut Room Divider with Book Shelves features four wooden shelves in a four-panel folding wood frame. The shelves simply slide into the panels to create space for books or whatever else you want to store and keep handy. Depending on how you configure the panels, the shelves can be threaded through so that there is shelving on both sides or on just one side. You can also use this room divider without the shelves.
- The 4-Panel Folding Screen with 2 Display Shelves is a more classic style of room divider but with shelving on both sides.
- The 3-Panel Fabric Room Divider with Pocket Holders includes 24 fabric pockets (all on one side) attached to cotton canvas suspended on three wood rods at the top, middle and bottom of each panel. The rods are removable and the canvas is washable. The pockets are sized well for everything from office supplies to accessories (each is approximately 7 3/4″ tall x 5 3/4″ wide), and they can be labeled, decorated or left unadorned.
