Ideas for A Multifunctional Room Divider

Wondering how to divide an open plan house or compact space without cutting off light? Solid wood modular partition cabinets by Norya designs come to the rescue!

Cabinets as a Living Room Divider

Go Big or Keep It Simple

Partition cabinets make for great living room dividers as they use available space to practical ends. They’re ideal for open plan houses and compact spaces where dedicated areas would be nice to have but storage is an important consideration. It also allows light to pass through without compromising on privacy or cosiness.

Norya’s European wood with patented “7-D finishing” means beautiful to look at from all angles, not compromising any aesthetic quality for functionality. Premium made materials are important for something you and your guests will notice everyday.

How to use cabinets as room dividers?

Functional as well as stylish

Many modern homes follow open plan designs where the living and dining rooms are merged into one large space. To create a task-oriented distinction between the two without an actual wall, living room divider cabinets can be used. 

These partition cabinets function as a fence of sorts. Long cabinets efficiently divide a space into two while also providing storage space. With Norya modular cabinets, you can design your own style of partition cabinets suited to your lifestyle and needs. Quite neat isn’t it?

Display your curios while creating boundaries

Open shelf cabinets are great living room dividers because they allow the flow of air and light between spaces without closing up. These work especially well homeowners that don’t necessarily need privacy between rooms but just separate spaces. 

If your living room is extending out into another task-oriented space like a dining room, a good way to demarcate the two is to use a divider cabinet that pulls double duty as a display. In this home, the storage cabinet is accessible from the dining room, but the layered open shelves add interest on both sides of the house.

Exhibit your trinkets, heirlooms, treasures of wonders galore here, or build your own Zoom library background for professional video calls! Norya’s modular cabinetry doesn’t just keep everything tidy, but adds a luxurious flair to your interiors with its glorious solid wood look.

Low height partition cabinet for a wider view

For an airy, open feel in your home, go with a low cabinet instead for a clear vision of both spaces while separating territories effectively. This layout is great for families with young kids as parents can babysit while multitasking without anything blocking their sight.

Norya lets you choose open or closed shelving with doors to avoid any curious, itchy hands from breaking their prized possessions. 

Reduce clutter around TV with an eye-catching look

If your house doesn’t have a dedicated wall to build a TV media console, living room divider cabinets will do the job. In this design, the wall-mounted TV is supported by a simple grey carcass floor storage with solid wood piece extensions for a modern look. 

The Norya rectangular partition shelf is arranged next to the living room seating area to reduce clutter around the television, making it easy on the eyes.

Blocks of wood to play hide ‘n seek

Create drama and dimension with peek-a-boo style divider cabinet designs. In this home, the brown cabinet features open shelves perched on filled-in blocks of wood. The open shelves are ideal for displaying trinkets while the closed blocks demarcate the space without blocking off light.

It can be a standalone piece or joined to the wall for the added in-built room divider look. The sheen resulting from the German wax and oils on the American Walnut, European Dark Oak or German Light Oak is mesmerising when the sunlight peeks through!


Norya modular divider cabinet designs are a foolproof way to split an open plan area into two while adding more storage and dimension into the space tastefully. Do away with the boring box-packed styles and go for something more personalised and furnished with Picket&Rail today!
