Shutters aren’t just for windows!
Room divider shutters let you transform any open-plan space

Whether you’re working, changing, relaxing, cooking, or making an area for kids to play – it’s often nice to have a dedicated space. Room divider plantation shutters let you create this space – but can then be neatly folded away when required.

Shutter room dividers couldn’t be easier to use. Mounted on a track and suspended from the ceiling, the operation is extremely light – easy enough to do with just one hand.

Of course though, when they’re locked in place, they’re robust enough to stand up to life in a busy home.

divider shutters for rooms

When used as room dividers, shutters can break up your room or slide back completely on their track.

This makes shutters ideal for large or open-plan homes - adding versatility to your space without the need for building work.

  • Easy to operate
  • Close off sections of your room
  • Perfect for family homes
  • Easy to clean and maintain

Make your home truly versatile with plantation shutters as room dividers

An open plan area is a fantastic way to create an airy, relaxed atmosphere in your home – but sometimes, large spaces will make you miss the practicality of separate rooms.

This is where room dividing shutters are incredibly useful.

Room divider shutters give you the best of both worlds. Fully retracted – or with your shutters partly open – you can enjoy all the space your room offers, but as the day changes, your room can too.

If you need a quiet space to work, change, cook, or just put your feet up – interior shutters will effortlessly glide into place and give you the peace and privacy you need.

Interior dividing shutters also work well if you want to create separate rooms without putting up a new wall.

Large bathrooms can then have a distinct shower, bath, or toilet spaces – or a dining area can become a work-from-home office during the day while still being suitable for family gatherings in the evening.

Your options are virtually endless – shutters really can bring a host of flexible room options without sacrificing your open plan feel.

Interior plantation shutters are perfect for family life

Bi-fold shutters as room dividers are an incredibly popular option in a family home.

Young children playing can be a joy to listen to – but at the same time, if you’re busy (or just need five minutes rest!), then being able to separate yourself from any noise or commotion can be really helpful.

Shutters offer just enough privacy without feeling like you’re clicking a door closed and unable to pay attention to kids or grandkids.

You’ll still be able to hear what’s going on elsewhere in your house – and if you like, you can angle your louvres to keep an eye on what’s happening too.

Shutter room dividers are a great way to create boundaries in a home too – especially useful when you’ve got bubbling pans or kitchen utensils in use.

A closed shutter can mean an area is out of bounds for little ones – but with the slats open, you can have eyes in two areas at once!

Just the right amount of light and privacy

Like new shutters on larger windows, when you choose shutters as a room divider, you can control the amount of light and privacy in your room.

Today, many homes are open plan right across the ground floor – and of course, apartments and flats often maximise space by having living, dining, and kitchen areas in one space.

This means that if your home is overlooked or has passing foot traffic, your entire living space is on show.

Interior plantation shutters do away with this problem.

If you decide you’d like to have a portion of your living space closed off – you can, and carefully angling your slats means that you take control of privacy too.

Shutters also mean that private spaces don’t have to be dark and dull – open your slats or slide your bi-fold shutters back and you’ll be bathed in sunlight again.

Room dividers: Ideas and inspiration

Your home is unique – so your room divider plans should work around your life and your style. That said, some shutter styles crop up again and again – so it never hurts to hear what other people have done with their home!

  • Creating a retractable divide between lounge and dining areas is a popular option – especially if you like to eat or entertain without distractions
  • Bi-fold shutters are often used in bedrooms – creating a dressing area for a little privacy as you get ready for your day
  • Shutters between conservatories and orangeries and your main home are popular – really opening your living space up when the weather allows
  • Shutters can be used to close off a full section of a bedroom or dressing room for use as a wardrobe. Slide your doors back, and you’ve got easy access and walk-in space.
