Rental-friendly divider wall ideas

by THE CUOMO TEAM REALTY GROUP Kimberly Cuomo 06/20/2022

When renting an apartment or condominium, you have to get creative about divider wall ideas. While you could simply renovate to change the layout of a house you own, you have fewer options for dramatic changes that stay within the terms of your lease.

Dividing up a room can be a challenge, whether you want to create privacy or define the purpose of a space. However, there are some excellent temporary room divider options that are completely rental-friendly while still achieving the desired goal.

Floor to ceiling bookshelf

Using tall bookshelves as makeshift walls is a beneficial idea for multiple reasons. Not only does it allow you to separate spaces without construction, it provides extra storage and display space. In a small living space such as a studio apartment, the multipurpose aspect of bookshelf walls make them an exceptional choice for separating an office space or bedroom.

Folding screens

Folding screens are a convenient way to divide a room, and come in a plethora of styles and sizes to match your decor. Choose folding screens made of fabric, paper screens, carved wood or create your own using PVC pipe. The added benefit of folding screens is that they are easily stowed away or against a wall when not in use.

Pressurized walls

For a more substantial room divider, consider using a flexible, pressurized wall. These structures go from floor to ceiling and stay in place using pressure rods instead of attaching to the interior surfaces. These room dividers are as close as you can get to a real wall without construction.

While most temporary room dividers won’t damage your rental property, it’s still important to confirm the details of your lease and consider safety concerns before adding any major features. With a little creativity, you can use these or other room divider ideas to make your rental space a dream home.
