This is a bit hard to explain.. I like having my apps categorized at the home screen (games, Google apps etc.) but I don't like how folders do it. Placing apps in folders makes them too small to see which makes me just go to the app drawer and search for them individually. Instead I need something to pop out and let me see all of the apps in the folder without having to click it.

I have tried just placing similar apps together but that doesn't give you such a folder-like effect.

Is there a way to have large folders on your home screen which shows every item or even a way to add small dividers to make some apps look like they are grouped?

I am using lollipop with CyanogenMod 12

Thanks in advance!

First, let me suggest that you specify your device, OS, etc.

Second, it sounds like you would benefit from an app (like Circle Launcher or Folder Organizer) or a completely different launcher in order to achieve greater flexibility.
