Room divider screens multiply design options
Room divider screens have been around forever, but are conspicuous by their absence in homes & apartments that could benefit from having one. Robust yet simple, they can transform a room in an instant. Their 1001 uses can be efficiently distilled into one of two categories:
Functional room divider screens
One of the most popular uses for a room divider is… to divide a room! If you have a loft, use a divider to create different ‘rooms’ – dining room, study, bedroom, home office. Two roommates in a one-bedroom apartment? A bedroom divider screen is a stylish, easy solution that provides privacy, definition, and the illusion of additional space. Place a room divider screen a few feet inside your door to create a foyer.
Use a room divider screen to redirect foot traffic. If you have an open floor plan, a divider can direct guests away from work or bedroom areas, or conduct them into a living room or common area. A room divider can also function as a portable dressing screen or a movable window shade, or to hide a messy area from view – easy & convenient!
Room divider screens as fashion statement
Fashion needs often trump function. Room divider screens are the most efficient way to accent large spaces. Have a big, plain wall? Place a folding screen in front, add a small dinette table and cute chairs and you have instantly created a cozy, appealing dining nook. Divider screen + chaise lounge + side table with books & antique lamp = a sophisticated, elegant reading room.
Room dividers can add a lot of color or texture to any room, particularly when deployed as a background accent. Place a warm, colorful divider opposite a sunny window – the screen will catch the light and splash color throughout the room.
Divider screens are a large & eye-catching design element. Used smartly, they can spark drab to fab pop in the blink of an eye!
