    So i'm moving to a new studio apartment, and I never lived in a place without a seperated bedroom. The main room is 30'x16' and I need something to seperate it so it feels like two distinct rooms. The previous owner had a bookcase that had storage on both sides. I liked it but can't find anything similar. Does anyone have any ideas for some sort of room divider that is around 8' - 10' in length and at least 6' tall. I drew a schematic to aid. I need a divider in place of the part circled. Bedroom will be on the left. Any ideas will be great.

    you could use something like this from Ikea. There are places that you can customize them in various sizes.

    There's also this cool piece from Crate & Barrel. Similar concept, but in metal. It's pretty damn nice if you line 3 of them up next to each other...it'd also be like $1800 :hs:

    There's also these from DWR. The cool thing about them is that you can actually store stuff in them and have them closed, and because they're plastic they still let light through. The bad thing is that each set of 3 is $198, so by the time you build a wall of them you've spent almost 2K :hs:

    Yeah those are pretty cool. I would just need a lot of shit to fill them. Haha. I wonder how weird something like this would look from the back...

    That's actually a really good idea, mainly because at the ikea I've been to, many of the rooms were like one huge space split up by bookshelves etc, so you can get a feeling for how a certain piece of furniture splits up a room

    I think I figured it out....

    Somehow I missed this on the website until I saw it in the store today. It was really one of the only ones I liked because it was made from solid wood, instead of the particle board just about all the bookshelves were made out of...

    2 pieces so I can seperate it later if I move out of the studio apt. When pushed together it is about 12' in length. Price tag of $537 but it comes with all the baskets and shit. Booya!

    I won't be moving in for another month but I will be sure to post some pictures of the setup once it is all put together. Thanks for the advice. This new forum is awesome

    I would consider some of those, but I'll only be renting. I have a feeling those don't transport well. And my ceilings are about 15ft high...
