Define an Entry A low, built-in bookcase carves out an entry hall in this open-plan bungalow. The tapered column punctuates the transition from entry to living area and reflects the Arts and Crafts architectural style of the house.

room divider concept I have this on file because of my worry that the room divider must be narrow, unlike the other photos where there is a "counter". I think a counter would have to be a minimum of 20" or it might look goofy After much thought I think this is the only solution
Built ins define an entry via BHG. DIY Built-in IKEA Bookshelves: "Built-in bookcases not only add a ton of character and storage, but they really can make a small house feel so much bigger!"
Remodeled Craftsman house with built-in bookcases and wainscoting- The white looks so crisp and clean...I can't decide whether or not to paint the woodwork white again after stripping off 88 years worth of paint.
Use Windows as Room Dividers A bank of tall and narrow multi-pane windows between the kitchen and the dining room makes both rooms feel lighter and airier. Another transitional element, a pair of wood columns, visually separates the dining room from the adjacent living area. Wow...what if I did away with the breakfast bar and installed storage cabinets with a set of windows above?!
White columns with built in shelves . . . great to divide up a room and give the feel of an entry area. ♥
