How can I close this room off while keeping it open when not in use
February 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Looking to make this den with pullout couch private when used as a bedroom but want to keep it's open feel when not in use which is most of the time. Thinking about top mounted sliders or collapsible doors that would stack on each side by the shown knee walls but would not be too obstrusive. Thanks so much for your ideas!

Does the bulkhead above the knee walls look similar on the other side of the knee walls? If so, a surface mounted barn door setup would work. Double track, four doors meeting in the middle?[houzz=Teen Boy Bedroom][houzz=Master Bedroom]

Barn door idea is great - maybe opaque glass panels above knee walls?

Would drapery allow you enough privacy? If so hang a ceiling rod and keep them pulled to each side when not in use. That will feel more homey than stacked doors.

Your drape choice should obviously not be shear, but this might be attractive and cost effective solution.
