Several Uses Of Decorative Screens

Decorative screens may seem like a luxury item that serves no inherent purpose. However, for most home owners, decorative screens can be highly useful. This makes them a valuable addition to the usual set of home furniture and décor that most home owners are used to.

Decorative screens can either be folding or fixed. Most of the folding decorative screens available in the market today are made of various materials like fabric, wood, paper, metal, plastic or a combination of several of the mentioned materials. Fixed or stationary decorative screens can also be made of various materials, just like the folding ones.

Whether folding or fixed, decorative screens can be used in several ways. One way to make use of decorative screens is to showcase art. Decorative screens can be the center piece of the room or the area. Lots of decorative screens nowadays are created meticulously through the use of fine metal crafting or wood carving and engraving. Other decorative screens come in the form of panels which present paintings and other works of art. Indeed, no longer are we limited in terms of coming up with designs and styles for decorative screens in our homes.

Another way to make use of decorative screens is to divide a room or a certain area of the house. There are always parts of the house which are too wide and other parts too narrow that it somehow brings the idea of renovation to owners. However, renovation is not the only solution to a wide open space in your home. One can still be able to manage space in the house through the use of decorative screens. Decorative screens can serve as good dividers without having to erect a solid and concrete wall or having to revamp the whole floor plan. Folding decorative screens can be put up and then taken down should the need for a wider space arise in the future. A more permanent division is brought about by fixed or stationary decorative screens. The only difference between a concrete wall and a fixed decorative screen though is that owners will have more freedom to toy with designs, colors and the materials to be used. Most dividing walls are plain and boring – with a flat surface and a solid color.

Decorative screens can also be used to accentuate. These screens can soften up corners of the house and can also add depth to certain areas of the house. They can be placed anywhere you want and still serve a purpose or two.

Selecting a Product

So what type of privacy screen is right for your space? Below is a simple guide in choosing the right privacy screen.
Think about your space

Be clear about what you want to screen – is it just photographic or is it acoustic as well? Create a list of necessities your privacy screen must meet.

Entry spaces can truly benefit from the use of privacy screens. This is one area where they are becoming increasingly popular.

Decorative privacy screens can be utilized to divide large open plan spaces to generate ‘visual’ rooms. They can also be used to create an acoustic ceiling or wall lining in high noise areas.

Develop a design idea and think about it again!

There are numerous graphic styles and concepts you may choose from, so think about which style would optimally suit the interior look and feel of your own home. A screen is a sculptural bit which you can style in a really personal way; you may even desire to have a family picture laser-cut into the design.

Choose your design materials

Today’s material options and styles are numerous, and seeing contemporary architectural materials meeting with customary concepts is nothing short of remarkable.

Consider the maintenance, cost and quality of your screen

There are some privacy screen materials that require some amount of care. In choosing the material of your privacy screens, make sure you think about how it is maintained to ensure that you will be able to properly maintain it in the future.

Compare the costs and quality of all these materials. Choose a privacy screen that is within your budget without compromising the quality.
