If you’re looking for a stylish way to visually separate two rooms—without building a floor-to-ceiling wall—a tiled divider wall is an on-trend option. A divider wall is a great opportunity to create a stunning statement piece in the room, while partially separating the two spaces. Let’s talk about tile ideas for designing a room divider that’s as beautiful as it is practical.
Why Build a Divider Wall?
Open concept homes are perfect for many homeowners, but they can make furnishing and decorating the space somewhat more challenging. If you want your living room and dining area to have their own separate style, a divider wall can be the perfect solution.
Whether you’re planning a partition wall between your living room and kitchen, dining area or another space, it’s a great way to add visual interest, dimension and privacy to an open concept space. Partition or divider walls can be built in a variety of styles and sizes, including half-walls, partitions that almost reach the ceiling and dividers that cover only part of a room’s width. A divider wall helps each room feel distinctive and separate without completely closing them off from one another.
In some instances, you can use the full slabs as the divider piece, like with Blue Tahoe Quartzite. No matter what kind of divider wall you need, it’s sure to be a unique and stylish addition to the space when you jazz it up with a tile design.
Kitchen Half Wall Tile Ideas
Half wall dividers are commonly added to open concept spaces to provide separation between a kitchen, dining area or living area while maintaining a sense of openness. Extending the kitchen’s backsplash tile onto the half wall creates a sense of continuity while keeping things interesting. Simple porcelain tiles like Bare or Paloma are timeless options that won’t go out of style anytime soon. Arrange them with alternating colors to give your wall divider added style and contrast.
For wider half walls in the kitchen/dining area, adding a countertop—such as Della Terra® Quartz—creates an instant built-in bar.
Living Area Divider Wall Designs
For divider walls in the living room, tiles are a way to bring color, texture and contrast to the space. A tiled partition wall is an opportunity to create a stunning accent wall in your living area. Choose a tile that complements the wall color while contributing texture, shape and dimension.
For a timeless, rustic quality, try Castle Brick’s striking brick-look aesthetic. Shibusa offers modern, geometric style with a unique bamboo-look texture. Or for a more distinctive, vibrant look try Reverie. Icon is a concrete-look porcelain tile perfect for infusing your accent wall with industrial style. No matter what tile suits your décor style, a divider wall is a perfect chance to go big and bold with it.
