With the ‘new normal’ meaning that many more people than ever before are working from home, B&Q has unveiled a new collection of modular room dividers that allows even those in compact homes the opportunity to dedicate space to a home office.

The Alara range, which is available online now and in selected stores from the 2nd November, comes as more than a third of Brits reveal that they are looking for ways to improve their working from home environment. Take a look at the collection below.

The Alara room divider range allows you to create an easy to install, completely customisable room divider that suits your individual space. There are different styles to choose from to suit your needs, including half height dividers that can be used to zone off an area of the room.

It’s easy to implement the Alara range into your home. You simply need to measure your space, choose your style of panels and posts and then it’s easy to install with push-fit connections. We love these industrial-style black panels, which are perfect for a dark and contemporary space and start at £42 per panel.

If you don’t want to opt for a solid room divider then incorporating windows into your designis an option, thanks to these oak window panels, priced at £75, which are part of the Alara range. They allow you to zone off a space but borrow light from another room, ensuring you’ve got a bright and airy workspace.

Shelves and spacer solutions

For those that struggle with storage and have limited space, you can incorporate sleek shelves and spacer solutions into your room divider. Starting from just £5, they slot in to the dividers seamlessly, offering you extra display space as well as making two spaces feel more cohesive.
