Interior Wall/Room Divider in the Mid-town Bungalow Dollhouse

I've always wanted to separate these two spaces. The living and dining rooms are separated in most of the pictures of these homes that I have seen online. My room is very tight and limited, so it can not take up much space. I thought about columns in the craftsman style but just not sure...whatever the final decision it will be removable. I have been thinking of adding windows on the fireplace wall to compliment the existing windows and paneling to the walls.

  1. Jocelyn, pony walls with half columns (i.e. picture #3) are very common in Craftsman houses, and in miniature, they really don't need to extend that far into the room. (My mom's house has pony walls that are 2.5 feet wide...in miniature, you can probably get away with 1.5 inches.)

    You *could* also visually lighten the look of a room divider by painting it white (extremely common in California Craftsman houses), but if you're up for a little scratch building, many dividers feature open shelving, cabinets with glass doors on both sides, etc. This connects the two spaces while keeping some visual separation and allowing light into both rooms (it works really well in a friend's real-life house).

    1. I love your suggests, I bought some small cabinets to try to mimic the look but I may give the scratch build a try. Thanks, I didn't know what the walls were called, I learned something new.

  4. Hello Jocelyn,

    I think the windows are a great idea. As for the devision of the rooms, I like the idea of columns but if they are too thick did you consider a flat room divider. I have seen several ones in the style of the cottage that could work well I think. Very much like a floor to ceiling screen.
    I look forward to seeing your changes.
    big hug,
    Giac
