7 Reasons Why You Need Glass Room Dividers In Your Home

Do you have a small room you’d like to organise? Or do you simply need to break up a much larger room? A room divider might just be the solution you are looking for. 


A simple room divider can completely transform your home or office space. Even better? There are numerous types of room dividers for you to pick and choose from!


Let’s explore the many benefits of using room dividers in your home or office below.

Benefits of Using Room Dividers in Your Home & Office


1. Flexibility

There’s flexibility for both permanent and portable room dividers.


A permanent, sliding room divider can give you the option to close off a section when you have a meeting and you need the privacy. It can also come in handy at home when you have a dinner party and don’t want guests to enter specific areas.


Portable room dividers are great for a quick and easy fix. It’s also a great option for people who constantly want to change a room’s layout, so they can easily move the divider.


2. Affordability

Want to create a private, separate space or break a room up into smaller sections without drawing up building plans and spending a fortune to rebuild? 


Room dividers can range anywhere from R600 to R1 000. There’s a room divider available for every budget out there.


3. Functionality & Organisation

Do you live in a one-room apartment? Or do you have an open-plan area in your home or office? 


A room divider can help add functionality by breaking the space up into sections, each with its own purpose. Having everything in one space can make a room look cluttered and seem smaller than it is. 


For example, it’s a great option if you work from home and you want to section off your workspace.


Another example is when you have a small bedroom with an en-suite that doesn’t have space for doors to open and close, you can simply add a sliding glass door to create privacy.


4. Quick & Easy

Installing or buying a room divider is a quick and easy process.


A portable room divider, you can buy and set up in under an hour. A sliding glass door or permanent divider of your choosing can take around 4 to 5 hours to install. 


5. Sophisticated & Modern

Gone are the days where people worked in stuffy cubicles or were divided by stale looking partitions. These days offices have large open spaces with glass sliding room dividers in place to section off areas, creating an open area with a clean, minimalist look. 


6. Lighting & Ventilation

Most room dividers are made of glass, which allows more light to enter a space. And because there are no walls to close up an area, it allows for ventilation. 


7. Variety of Materials

Room dividers are available in various materials from glass to wood or plastic and bamboo. You’ll definitely be able to match your home or office decor with these options.

Glass has been around for centuries and is continuously being used in residential and commercial spaces around the world. It’s widely used for exterior walls and patio doors but is becoming popular to be used in transforming the interior of the home and office.

Types of Room Dividers


There are various types of room dividers available on the market today.


Foldable & Portable

By far the easiest and quickest method to section a room. These dividers don’t need to be fixed to a wall and are generally designed in a zig-zag fashion. 


It’s a good option if you’re staying in a space where you have restrictions on changing the layout of the room permanently. A foldable divider can easily be set up and just as easily be taken down. 


Some portable dividers are made of wood, fabric, shoji screens, canvas pocket, or various other materials which will easily match your decor.




Do you have an en-suite in your bedroom but want some privacy? Is your kitchen and living room sharing the same space? Sliding glass room dividers provide many options for homeowners as well as office areas.


If you’re not keen on separating an area permanently, sliding doors are a good option. They are incredibly flexible and allow you to section off areas whenever you want or need to.


They also allow light to pass from room to room, brightening up your space and cutting down on your electrical bill. 


A sliding glass door is easy to open and close as they are lightweight and smoothly glide open and closed.



Since these room dividers are permanently fixed to the walls, ceiling, and floors, it’s not the best option if you frequently want to change the layout of a room.


These room dividers are made of glass, metal, or wood materials to suit any style.
