Closing off a den

I was curious as to what options i have to close off a den that is open into the living room of my apartment. besides just putting up a wall or having a accordion divider, are there any other feasible options?

If you're looking for privacy and its an open doorway you could just install a regular or pocket door.

If you're not after privacy, you could build a half-height wall. My neighbor has one of those between their living room and entrance way, I don't really care for them.

If you really want to just cut it off from the living room, then framing it up and drywalling it might be your best option.

Obviously, if you're renting this apartment from someone, you should talk about it with them first. On the other hand if its yours then the choice is up to you.
