Renovation Detail: The Built-In Room Divider

Developing a traditional Arts and Crafts built-in room divider is on our list of must-do renovations. The conventional design combines form and function to define at least two spaces . These dividers help organize large spaces while keeping an open floor plan and keeping rooms bright and airy. Most have square, tapered columns and storage, but fresh variants create the same effect.
