Close off doorway to convert dining room to bedroom
Hi, this is my first post! I'm hoping you guys have good suggestions for me. :)
We just moved into a very small place, and we need to use the dining room as a bedroom. There are 2 open doorways - one to the kitchen which is 81h x 29.5w and one to the living room which is 81h x 70w. I don't need to have access to the kitchen from our "bedroom", so I'm thinking of just putting a bookcase in our bedroom to completely close off that entrance. However, I need a creative idea for closing off the larger entrance. My needs:
1) Must close off the entire 81x70 space.
2) Must have a very easy way to get in and out (which is why I've ruled out those standard room dividers).
3) Can't require too much construction. I don't think the landlord will mind if I put in a few holes, etc. but I cannot do anything major.
I'm pretty stumped right now. I was thinking of just installing a window curtain rod and getting a nice curtain, but I would prefer something more substantial because curtains aren't going to keep out any sound.
Any ideas would be majorly appreciated!! :)
