The shared bedroom - apart from brussels sprouts and under-the-bed monsters, it may be childhood's most dreaded menace. It's not just a matter of convenience; for many children, possessing a personal space is an important part of establishing their own identity. Here are some ways kids room dividers can help children - and parents - to get the most out of a home's available space.
Having a separate bedroom is often one of the first boundary and ownership issues that crops up with growing children. While some parents are inclined to pull out the "when I was your age" argument, a kids room divider is an affordable and pragmatic solution that's well worth considering, both for younger children and pre-teens.
So how might that work in practical terms? For younger kids, a small childrens room divider that features a tackable or white board surface would offer changing privacy and distinctly separate sleeping areas while also creating a fun space for drawing or putting up posters and pictures. This can also be useful if your children prefer different light levels when they're sleeping. Put a night light on one side: problem solved.
Large childrens room dividers are obviously a better choice for older children. Many of our room dividers for kids feature panels with double hinges, allowing you to customize the divider shape to fit your needs. An L-shaped divider configuration with hanging beads for a doorway would be one possible way of creating a bedroom within a bedroom. Greater sound control can also be provided with flexible floor-standing designs.
Dividing basements and game rooms
Basements and game rooms always have more than one role to play when there are children around. Keeping adult world and kid world separate with a room divider is a simple way to give the kids a dedicated play area and keep superhero action figures from vanishing into the sofa cushions.
Our selection of room dividers for kids includes many game room-appropriate designs that are 60 inches wide or larger. Most room divider models feature multiple color options for a finish that blends in well with your decor.
