    Default Ideas for separating a large bedroom?

    Our ski house has an extra large bedroom which currently contains 4 beds. We would like to separate it into 2 more private sleeping areas but aren't sure of the best way. It has beautiful hardwood floors that we don't want to damage as someday we may want to put it back to large bedroom. It has 1 door - which leads you to the middle of the room.

    Should we use furniture?? Or build a temporary wall??? Has anyone else had a similar project??

    Thanks!

    Can you use curtains? You can get curtain wire and hangars from Ikea that work like hospital curtains.
    Or separate the space with bookcases; cover the backs with something nice looking and you can use them for storage.

    Put up a wall. Add door(s) as required and don't sweat the floor.

    If you build a wall, enlarge the middle entrance door to accommodate two doors (one leading to each room) and wall space (door, wall, door). If you return the space to one room, the “door, wall, door” can be replaced by a wide double door like a French door, or a barn door type application. However, make sure each bedroom door is large enough to move furniture in and out.

    You can also use a barn door system or doors that slide from a ceiling track to divide the room, but the barn doors usually require some portion of a wall be built. Make sure the ceiling can structurally support the weight if you hang anything directly from a ceiling tract.

    Search on Pinterest for “barn doors in the house” to get ideas.

    Dividers - if complete privacy and sound are not required.

    Visual privacy for the sake of modesty is relatively easy. Sound privacy requires a substantial wall with even the tiniest gap caulked shut and sound insulation in the walls. Don't forget about where the heat ducts or devices are located. Each area will need its own heat source, especially in a ski area.
