We will be answering these questions and more, including:

So, shall we begin?

What Are Shutter Room Dividers?

Shutter room dividers are also know as track shutters.

These shutters operate using a pragmatic by-pass system. Which allows the shutter panels to effortlessly slide along a fixed track.

Opening and closing at your preference.

The track is fixed to the ceiling and will firmly hold the shutter panels in place at all times.

Room divider shutters are pragmatic and robust additions to any home.

Now, you may be wondering what happens to the panels when they are full opened.

Well, the shutter panels make good use of a smart bi-fold system. Which enacts as the panels are moved together. The panels then simply fold out and sit against an adjoining wall.

Have a look at our line diagram to see what we mean.

Using the Bi-Fold Shutter style, shutter panels fold neatly against the wall when not in use.

So now we know how they work, how do they give you more room around the house?

How They Will They Create More Room In Your House?

The main aim of any room divider is to create new space at a moment’s notice.

So as the shutters slides across your room, it instantly creates two new spaces for you to use.

While the amount of space may remain the same, it repurposes the room(s), making your home feel completely different.

OK, but why invest?

Why Should You Use These Shutters?

As we all know, extra space is hard to come by.

In fact, it can be very expensive.

Especially if you take into account the cost of extensions.

Room divider shutters are an excellent (and much cheaper) alternative to this.

They are not only affordable, robust and beautiful, but will also unlock the potential of your home’s existing spaces.

Room dividers have a timeless look and add practical character to your interiors.

By having these shutters in place, you can essentially create extra rooms whenever you need them.

For example, they can be used to divide a large living room and dining area or a kitchen/diner to give your home a more distinguished feel.

Or use them to create a home office space. With many of us now working from home in some capacity, being able to create a dedicated area to do your job is essential and these shutters will let you do just that.

Use shutters to help create a new dedicated space for your home office.

Another thing to keep in mind is that these shutters not only provide new space, but can also maintain the current use of the room too. Returning the same area back to its original larger space when you are finished at the end of the day.

Which Shutter Styles Can Be Used As Dividers?

For dividers, its best to opt for Bi-Fold Shutters and Bi-Pass Shutters.

So why is that?

Well, Bi-Fold Shutters are made from separate panels, which concertina together and fold neatly against a wall when not in use.

This means that this shutter style works really well in large spaces and thus makes for the perfect base to use as a room divider.

Bi-fold shutters allow the panels to move across the fixed track effortlessly.

Bi-Pass Shutters work very similarly to Bi-Fold Shutters. However, instead of folding back against the wall, they slide either in front or behind each other. This makes them ideal as a partial room divider or even as a wardrobe door.

Now, there are other shutter styles to consider here too, such as the Full Height Solid Panel or Tier-on-Tier Shutters. However, these are best used as partial room dividers and hatches.
